Hubpages Chat

  1. Info Bucket profile image73
    Info Bucketposted 7 years ago

    I've started a chat room for hubber's to connect each other easily.   Relache suggested me to start a chat room for hubbers when I posted a Thread on 'Report a problem or Suggest a new feature' forum about  starting a chat room for hubpages. If you're interested.....check it out. http://hubpageschat.blogspot.com/2010/07/chatroom.html and there will be no human if hubbers are not interested. And this is not for promoting any stuff, just to keep in touch. smile / sad ?

        YesDonna, but there's no human, we have to promote it and bring more hubbers there.

    Why do we need that when we can and do  chat right here?

      Well, actually, this is a message board, not a chat room. Chat makes the response immediate.

      Might be a nice idea. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out!

      1. Info Bucket profile image73
        Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Yes we can connect each other quickly, in forums we have to wait for the others response........

    @snaggerries ; Plz Check it now friend........
    @Pcunix : Forum have limitations in my eye..... And someone agreed with my suggestion and relache said me to start a blog and a chat room my own and say hubbers to come there. By chatting we can know each other personally and share our knowledges........... This is my view............

    We would go crazy if it were a chat room, some ppl will dominate as if they own the chatroom. omg chat rooms have so many  issues.. idk. m sleepy yikes

      Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I don't wanna own that chat room, its for hubbers, by hubbers and of hubbers.

    Thanks but no thanks. A forum I can leave for hours at a time to get with writing and catch up on stuff later, but can't do that with a chat room.
    I'm here to write and learn SEO, not chat.

    1. Info Bucket profile image73
      Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Izzym, i didn't said to use chatroom instead of forums. Forums are unavoidable, but if we want a quick answer and want to minkle with experts more comfortably, chatroom will be a good idea...., thats all i did. But there's a lot of chance of spammers......

    2. Lisa HW profile image79
      Lisa HWposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      That's my reaction too.  (Same as Izzy's, but I apparently clicked the wrong "reply").  That's what makes the forum good.   smile    I like the "pop-back-whenever" aspect of the forum.

      1. Info Bucket profile image73
        Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Yes that's one of the advantages of forums, but from forums we didn't get instant replies, it take time.

  8. Dardia profile image78
    Dardiaposted 7 years ago

    I think it is a good idea. It would especially be good if some of the more experienced hubbers could take a half hour or so to be available on the chat for the newbies who may need a quick response to a question. Also a good way to get to know others.

    1. Info Bucket profile image73
      Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Thanx for supporting me Dardia. You're very correct, if we can chat with experts for half an hour, it'll help us a lot.

  9. Pcunix profile image90

    Yeah, i really dislike chat.  Good luck to you, though - if you like it, go for it.

      Thanx man. Each n Everyone have their own ideas and interests, and they have the right to say it. That's what both of us did.

    This is something that Hubpages might adopt?

    1. Info Bucket profile image73
      Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yes Ginger Meow, I have suggested to start a chat on Hubpages by starting a thread on 'Suggest a New Feature', then relache said me to start my own chat room and let hubbers come there

    There's enough character assination already going on in this forum, we don't need another avenue for others to condascend in real time.

    It's not for me, but good luck anyway.

        I tried this a couple of months ago got one person chatting with me once but no more so I quit. but I will definately try if others will I would love to chat with other hubbers.

  15. Info Bucket profile image73
    Info Bucketposted 7 years ago

    Yes, i got 3 followers there on the blog, it need more popularity among hubbers.

    1. Diane Inside profile image81
      Diane Insideposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      there I am a follower now, I am one the chat now. I would think that people would love this idea, since they love the forums so much. But hubbers are set in their ways I guess.

  16. climberjames profile image58
    climberjamesposted 7 years ago

    Hi Info Bucket, I like the idea, infact I created a post on the subject:

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/48924#post1118233

    I think what came out of that post was that for a chatroom/message board to be successful (i.e. have enough participants) it would need to be created by HubPages and this is unlikely as it would be a huge task to manage and monitor.

    Relache also pointed out that some Hubbers in the past have created outside chat rooms and unfortunately they have never been able to sustain themselves . . .

    Good luck anyway smile

      relacheposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Hey, I never said it was a good idea, and even pointed out how every attempt to do this in the past has failed.

      I personally am totally against the concept of "hub chat" and do not endorse this cockamamie development in any fashion, so no matter how many times Info Bucket says my name, just know I think it's a stupid idea and a waste of time.

      1. Daniel Carter profile image80

        I don't think everyone shares your same opinion, which has been duely noted.

        Info Bucketposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I didn't said that relache said it's a good idea, i only said that you suggested me to do so.

        1. relache profile image91
          relacheposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          And you've said that so repeatedly in this thread that I felt compelled to make it clear I did not support or endorse the concept.

        Why bother commenting on it, then?  You've made similar comments before.  I'm sure anyone interested already knows your feelings about the practice.

          Cagsilposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, I'm sure, but it's fun pulling Paradigmsearch's post(leg) every once in a while. And, as you can see, Para was up for it, considering the reply. And, now since you've responded with your said comment, it's now made me post yet again. hmm

            Made you?  Wow, whatever happened to the old theory of self control?  I personally think that the ability to ignore things selectively is one of the most under-used skills in the HP forums - perhaps in the entire world.  It's a practice I highly recommend. big_smile
