Hi, I emailed iVillage 2x in the last few days. You can get to chat by clicking on a topic on the main page-example-parenting. click on parenting then scroll down until you get to a box on the left side and then click on chats. I told them that having chat on the main page would be eaiser, but I think I was ignored. I used to like to chat in the main lobby and now I can't find it. I thought it would be under relationships, but I couldn't find chat on the relationsip site. I think this new wasy is more confusing and definitely harder to find. If anyone can tell me an easier way, please help. I would love to have a listing

of all the chat rooms to see which discussions I would be interested in. Very confused.

Hi there,

This is a c/p from a post Kerri made about the chats-

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To find a chat, go to the iVillage Main page (or directly to the main page of each channel):

http://www.ivillage.com/

Select the category that the chat would fit in (Babies, Beauty, Diet and Fitness, etc). If a channel has chats, you will see a chat link in the 'Features' section (located on left hand side) of that channel's main page.

If you can't find the chat you are looking for, post here again I will help you find it :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is no longer a main 'lobby' for chat anymore. Now, all the chats are divided by channel. (and not every channel holds chats)

IOW, each channel has it's own listing, it's own 'chat central' if you will; instead of an 'iVillage-chat central', it is "ParentSoup Chat central" or "Health chat central". The chat topics have been divided more, really. In a way I think that would make topics easier to find, really.

Here are the links to all the 'chat centrals' iVillage has now~

ParentSoup- http://www.parentsoup.com/chat

ParentsPlace- http://www.parentsplace.com/chat

Health- http://www.ivillagehealth.com/chat

Pets- http://www.ivillage.com/pets/chat/

Diet & Fitness- http://www.ivillage.com/diet/chat/

Money- http://www.ivillage.com/money/chat/

Food- http://www.ivillage.com/food/chat/weekglance/

Work- http://www.ivillage.com/work/chat/

Relationships- http://www.ivillage.com/relationships/chat

I am also sure there is a home and garden schedule, but it is not showing up. When I get the link I will post that one as well. :)

There are still general chats that occur I know at least on ParentSoup, there's an afternoon chat and primetime chat. So that would be most like the lobby, finding a general chat. If I find out more I will post again about general chats. :o)

HTH~

Wendy

Thank you Wendy for copiling all that info. My problem is that there is not a chat room that is available all the time for general discussions-no topic needed. I thought it would be on the relationships page- but right now there is only 1 chat there and it is for 20 somethings. That is why I miss the Lobby-open all the time and talk about whatever you want on your time schedule.

I can certainly empathize. Maybe that can be something iVillage can bring back if there is enough demand for it, and it is within their ability. I know how much it means to *know* you are chatting in a safe place, like iVillage offers. Chat rooms can be really scarey!

Hi :)

There's a lobby chat room -- you can get to it from the Join the Conversation board. Enjoy!

I found the link too, but the "Treasure" has been buried so deep that this link is almost impossible to find. When I followed the link just now no one was there.........

I have lost about 30 friends whose personal emails I never requested because I took it for granted that I would always be able to run into them in the general relationships chat hosted by I-Chat. Now they are gone. I-Village has successfully blown up our cyber neighborhood. I am very sad now. I've chatted with them for 5 years.
