I think we should have a chat room. It would be great way to get to know each other!

I like the idea. Wink

I would love if we could have a shoutbox, so we could talk in real time. But I don't know if this is possible...

Don't look at me - I've no idea how to do that!

If we get chat or something similar, I think we should also try to pick one or two set times for virtual meet-ups. Two times that work well for as many time zones as possible.

I'll ask my husband about it! Maybe he can give us some advice since he was the one who put a shoutbox in a forum where both of we are registed.

I don't like chats, I prefer to chat through the forum (by posting, I mean), but if you do, go on Cool

I'm not very fond of chats... I'm a member of several forums which had a chatbox in the past and decided to stop it because:

1- not a lot of people used it
2- it can't be moderated and can occur troubles
3- it takes a "big" place in the display of the forum
4- people chat about things that had nothing to do with the forum

Nevertheless, if most of you here wants a chatbox, I can have a look at the tools and we can try it for a couple of months.

After reading your points, Douce Plume, It could be more problematic than helpful to get a chatbox... Question I'm reconsidering if it would be a good idea...

I have had the same experience with chats. However, here is an alternate idea.

We could on a standing basis have one or two times we try to *meet* on the boards. We could start a *chatty* thread in one of the forums in which people can post. If enough people are posting, it is almost like a chat. It is fun to have a conversation of sorts that happens pretty quickly.

Members only have access to the thread.

So, what's a good time/date to try to meet? (What time zone is the board in?)

I do have an alternative suggestion if there are a number of people interested in having a chat room. One of the forums I used to frequent had an IRC chat room off site that could be accessed by an IRC client. That way it took up no room on the forum, but was open to members to chat and wasn't really a problem if it went off topic.

I didn't like IRC in the past, but I don't know how it is now. Question

For chats with my friends we use the site Groups.im

It supports yahoo and windows messenger for now, but they say it will support others messengers soon. We could try that.

Bass&Tea and Jackie: if one of you want to open a group for a "chatbox", feel free to do it. I don't have time to do it and as I never use "chatbox" I don't know how to do it...

If you create something, I'll add the link and conditions to join (if necessary) on the forum Smile

Similar to Pullip Style and Dollie Mixtures (the forum I moderate), I think we need our own set of emoticons -- even though I think that the ones we have are very cute! But instead of pullips, we'd have a bunch of dals. Maybe (like on Dollie Mixtures) one dal for an emotion?

What do you think? If I need to post a screencap of what Dollie Mixtures has, let me know.

I'd be happy to see more emoticons, especially Dals. As long as we don't get rid of the ones we have, which are my favorite emoticons anywhere!!!

I have several emoticons that I could add (still have to find time to do it) but non of them are Dals related. So if someone has Dal emoticons, let me know (I don't have the authorization to use the lovely Dals that are on Pullip Style - I mean the ones on your signature Mayonaka).

Actually, that wasn't the style I was talking about. I was talking about the Nero head emotes. hehe.

Example:

Yeah, some of them are animated. I mean, we could design our own.

I mean, I like the ones we currently have, but I was just suggesting some individuality in the forum.

As I already wrote, if someone have or make them, I'd be happy to add them to the ones we already have. Smile
