Is there a way to have something pop up when someone clicks on Live Chat that tells them what scheduled chats are going on? We've had several episodes of new members (who don't have Nov babies, or who don't even have children at all) coming to our Playroom Chat without realizing it's a scheduled chat for a designated group. Many of us are uncomfortable discussing our children and our problems when there's a stranger in there that we know absolutely nothing about, yet it feels very awkward to tell someone that this is the so-and-so chat, for members of that forum only. Somebody got very offended in a recent chat when it was kindly explained that it was our forum's scheduled chat time.

I know that there's a page that lists the scheduled chats, but it isn't something people see if they just click on "Live Chat." Is there any way to change this, or to have a message on the top of the Chat screen asking people to make sure they're attending a chat that is for mommies (or non-mommies) like them? It would cut down on a lot of awkward moments and hurt feelings.

I am not sure that this is something we can do with our chat software. I will look into it but I just don't know that we can do this.

Is there the possibility of maybe setting up a general chat room so whoever wants to go in there can, just to chit-chat about O/T stuff instead of coming into a scheduled chat? Just a thought.

There is a main area ... but when they don't find people in there (there aren't usually people in the chat room that aren't scheduled to be there from what I see) then they come into the scheduled chat.
