Hey community! If I started up a HubPages Chat do you think you guys would start using it? It gets rather boring writing and being by yourself all the time and itd be nice to get to talk to some other hubbers and maybe even get some ideas from each other!.
Thank you for our chat room
sadly I have nothing to chat
oh wait yes I do silly me
can u please help me with this puzzle I just can't seem to mentally finish it, all help appreciated thank you
This has been asked and answered in the past. It wasn't a good idea then and certainly is not a good idea now.
One other hubber opens a chat, so others could take advantage and it didn't work out well.
HubPages is NOT a social networking site. It's not a blogging site either. It's also not a social bookmarking site neither.
HubPages is writing platform with a forum community for built-in assistance. Your writing should be article size(magazine length).
The "professional" nature you need to write and succeed in making money is to have the right attitude. HubPages is a business, first and foremost.
The forum software for posting and format, allows any number of people to carry on any number of conversations. I have carried on occasion, 3-5 different conversations at one time. It would be no different than that of a chat.
If the forums are for built in assistance then why are there topics such as religion, politics, even cooking and pets. These are not topics for assistance in hubpages, they are just neutral topics.
A chatroom would be a neat thing to have, and just like the forums you don't have to participate if so desire.
It's nice to have a place to chat - so we aren't highjacking somebody else's discussion. I am seeing so many "god" and "religion" threads I'm hardly bothering to come to the forums anymore. I think its a great idea to chat, just not about religion or politics. Some threads are picked up and recycled over and over because we do like to touch bases with each other for short comments. See how people we "know" on HP are doing and share fun as well as serious things. I think Cagsil participates in all sorts of threads on HP so I don't know why he's trying to detract from a chat thread - Let's have a chat thread, by all means, and it's a free forum site, so it doesn't matter how many other chat threads there have been in the past!
So, that said, I want to tell you I'm fine, but my daughter just moved a thousand miles away and now my best friends are planning to move who knows how far away in another month or so. So I am re-examining what I'm doing and wondering what I will do with these important people in my life gone. ?? suggestions are welcome.
Come to Miami! We'll party all weekend!!! ...until 10pm. We have to get our beauty sleep!
Miami!?! Sounds good, never been there, but since I have to stay here and work, I can't really come there. Maybe someday - thanks for the suggestion. So I need to find ways to make some friends, get involved with something here where I live in Sonoma County CA - and remember, I am incredibly lazy!
I took it as setting up a way to chat, other than the forums threads. Nothing else.
I'm not trying to take away from a chat thread, just the social kind of chat software, like social sites.
That's been addressed by my statement.
Mega, yea..that's a tough one...important people moving away...maybe you need to go too?...that's hard too! been there, am there....still deciding....
Here's the latest failed attempt at this same idea,
there is a chatroom open right now just go here. open another window first.
see you there.

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...

http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/93880That thread has been around as long as I can remember. And every day a new thread pops up about one group hating on another. These aren't friendly debates, they are nasty, hateful people hating on other people's cultures and beliefs. It is harmful, and nothing...

I believe this has been addressed before but can we please revisit it. I have very little interest in the religion and political forum threads yet they seem to occupy 75%+ of the latest activity. It's an inconvenience to have to browse through Jesus this and Obama that just trying to read on topics...

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...
