I usually only log in if I see a decent group of people, so if everyone has my thinking then no one would ever log in :P

Re: chat room - January 9th 2016, 10:58 PM

true . But I'll sometimes sit there for an hour or so with no one logging in as im going with the idea that if one person is in there someone else may log in and then if there 2 people someone else may then like log in and so on ... but i dont know how well my idea works.

Oh it's just a matter of sitting around and waiting on more people to log in. I'll sit around and give it 20-30 minutes sometimes, sometimes longer if I'm not doing anything.
Remind new people posting in the arrivals forum that we do have a chat room, (that they can even use on their mobile device!)
I have not attended but have noticed there are facilitated discussions every now and then, maybe we could all just talk about a time that would be good for us to lurk around the chat room and try and stimulate it.
It makes sense that people don't like to log in unless there are people in there.

Revenge is a poison meant for others that we end up swallowing ourselves.
Vengeance is a dark light that blinds all who seek it.
The untroubled soul knows there is no justice in revenge.
The untroubled soul knows that to seek vengeance, is to seek destruction.

It really depends on what is going on in users lives, school, work, personal; which can play a role in who is able to go in the Chat Room. We also have Time Zones, half the world would be asleep, the other would be awake. It all depends where the most users are demographically, which I do not know those numbers.

In terms of the Chat Room, we have two Chat Lobbies for regular chit-chat, if the Chat Room got big and you wanted to talk to others about a topic you can move into another room to resume that conversation.

We have two Support and Advice rooms, this is a place where users can get support, it's not a place for general chit-chat and if a user enters the room and is triggered or gets upset by the user receiving support and advice, we ask that user to go to Chat Lobby 1 or 2.

Facilitated Discussion Room 1 and 2 are for discussions, you can find more information on when they are being run, what the discussion topic is on and who is facilitating. Facilitated Discussion

It depends sometimes during discussions the attendance is down, but it's nothing new, it happens, there are turn-outs for discussions and a lot of users attend. All of it is voluntary.

Sometimes I find that the chat room can be a bit quiet as well depending on the day, obviously because of the time zone.

But other times, it can be busy.

Re: chat room - January 11th 2016, 04:47 AM

I normally go on if I see a lot of people in there, and if my phone happens to be working at that time. My laptop doesn't work with java so I can't get into the chat room on it and sometimes my phone doesn't work with the internet (it's a little old).

As Rainbow said, it also depends on time zones when it is most active so it could just be that you don't see the active times from being in a different time zone.

I can only use the chatroom when I have wifi on my tablet, because it doesn't work on my PC.
