  hi all

:(would so love to get aquainted with you guys and gals in the chatroom but anytime I wander in  no body else  seems to be there, are you all invisible, is it just bad  luck, wrong settings  bad timing....... ????
are there any other rootschatters with the same problem.
kind regards

I have been lucky enough to have found someone in the chatroom every time I have entered, and yes, it may well be bad timing. Are you overseas? I have always found luck during 7 - 9 pm GMT  ;)

Hi scatty, ;D

you and I had a chat just after the chat room opened. I used to pop in at around 6.30 am Oz time and always had plenty of company.

Now I have the same problem as you - over the last couple of weeks there has been nobody home when I called :(

I'm glad you have the same problem - I was beginning to think it was just me they were hiding from :'(
Cheers

Hello Scatty,

I try to "bob" in most uk evenings from 8-10pm and my favourite night is Friday as I can be in untill 12pm.

We have had a bank holiday over here and we have been away so not been in this last couple of days or so.

If the room is empty, why not invite another member by instant message, that is what I do when I fancy a chat and often people join you as you are chatting  :D

Hi All

If you want a chat in the chatroom

Send the person you want to chat to a personal message saying

"I am off to the chat room, care to join me"

Then you know there will be someone in there who YOU Want to talk too

Simple

I usually visit the chat room at 6-7pm California time. (2-3am Uk time) I'm happy to do look ups (1871, 1891, 1901) for all the night owls and people like me who are halfway around the world.
Cheers,

CHAT TIMES??
« Reply #7 on: Tuesday 14 September 04 08:57 BST (UK) »
This is my first message to this interesting board. I'm still navigating my way round but was wondering Is there a set time for chat?
I live in Victoria, Australia and have been "doing" family research for 19 years. Regards Holly

Hello Holly.

And a very warm welcome to you here on RootsChat. :)

It would be a great idea to have a particular time for people to go to the RootsChatterBox.

Perhaps we should make it 5pm, 8pm and 11pm local time or something?
