Just a thought but might be nice to chat to other hubbers in real time..or has this been mooted or tried before?
Repeatedly. You can look up infobucket's chatroom, I hangout in there occasionally but like most attempts... it has died off.
That was the LAST attempt. However no one goes there anymore. Most chats end up like that it seems...
What has happened to info bucket haven't seen her in ages on the forum?
I thought Infobucket was a guy?
And I haven't seen him/her for awhile...
Maybe he got sick of people not being interested in his chat room.
Hey!! I am a guy!! And i said that the pic is of an actress here in INDIA!! Any way, i've changed my pi!
To me, the wonderful thing about communicating via email or on Internet forums like this one is that the communication ISN'T happening in real time... it happens as and when it suits the individual and is therefore non-invasive. Real time chat rooms don't have much appeal for me, because they tie you down to a specific time just like the telephone does.
I think the same way as you do on this one. I've never even been to a chat room. With something like the non-real-time stuff, you can pop on and see what's there when you feel like and have a few spare minutes (or hours ). It's one thing to "factor into your day" a little bit of something other than "real" work. It's another to not do your work and be online chatting to the world.
I think HP has enough hassle wandering around the various sub-forums without making them lose even more hair moderating a live chat room.
Honest - some of the fights here would have made your hair curl. Your eyes water. And your sides burst from laughter *nods*
Anyway - for my part, I prefer 'chatting' in person, to people I know and love. And I have enough of them to keep me happy. Or chatty.
My current favorite listener appears to be a dog. Hangs on my every word so she does
Man I haven't been in a chat room since I was a kid when AOL first came out. I didn't know they still existed at all online apart from AIM and things like that.
I just had a chat here on the Forums. As EmpressFelicity said seven months ago, the Forums don't tie you down like a chatroom does. And if the chatting parties are online at once, it hardly feels any different to a chatroom.

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....

I was thinking it would be interesting that have a new hubbers introduction section in the forums. I dunno... Just a thought...Oops. I spelled Section wrong in the title... :-\

Your second unrestricted topic thread, keeping TOS in mind of course....Cashier at Staters supermarket double-charged me for a Hot Pockets. Serves me right for buying it in the first place.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...
