Tecnically it's still there, but any time I check in (most weeks), there is nobody there.

I've checked periodically too and it's always empty. Our board has been so slow lately.

If you think this PR is dead you should see Kolbie's....

We have a super active FB group, but as co-host over there I get really frustrated by it.

When I upgraded my browser chat stopped working. I tried stopping in after derby practice a couple times, but it never worked so I stopped trying.

I forgot about it actually. Most Friday's I like just chilling out with DH and don't feel like being on the computer until later in the evening.

I've always thought Friday is not the ideal time for chat. I'm SAHM but I'm guessing if I worked M-F then Friday would be my night to chill with my family.

I used to be hard to keep up with conversation. There would be 8-10 of us there almost every week. Then for a long time it was just me and Cyndee or me and Gillian...or me...and we'd pass each other. I suppose it's just the way it goes!

I miss chat! It always seems like my Friday nights are busy, or I'm just ready to crash early after a long week. Plus, chat is at a bad time for me. It hits right at dinner/bath/bed.

What if we got it moved to a week night? Do you think more people could attend?

^What about Sunday night? Maybe the end of the weekend (once people have paid their family dues ) would work out better?

No real preference on night here. As long as it's after Aidan's bed time, I'm usually just punked in front of the TV anyway.

I'm more for a weekday, sunday nights are tougher for me. Mon-Wed are good options, say 9-10. It's so hard spread across time zones. I can also do any weekday at 12 on my lunch break.

We tried a day lunch time chat a year or so ago and nobody ever showed up. The 9pm slot worked when people were participating because there are a couple of night owls in the east (I'll keep us nameless ) who were always around when the west coasters showed up at midnight eastern anyway.

I sit at the computer all day.. I rarely touch one once I get home. Friday nights are family time though.. so that night has always been hard for me. Another weeknight might work better.. like Tuesday. It's the only night I will not go to late yoga.. because the instructor sucks.

I do have google chrome now, maybe I can get chat to work on it. Or maybe they solved the problem in the last round of maintenance.
