IV chat rooms available

IV chat rooms became available a few weeks ago. Two weeks ago when I bumped the chat post here I remembered and didn't have quite enough time to check it out. Wendy has graciously offered to set one up for us if we would like to try it out, and I seem only to remember just before chat time...

What do you think about giving it a try? Has anyone else here tried the new chat on another baord? I know we were all upset when they had to let chat go a few years ago, though I think we all understood it was a format/financial decision at the time.

Here's what I think: regular chats at FB seem to be going well, and do keep us in touch with Vicki, Betsy, Mary Anne, Rachel. If we moved chat back here I don't think those people would come back here for chats, they are often looking at other parts of FB during chat, and are just so busy, it took us going to FB to reconnect.

I would be willing to switch chats back here if there were more lurkers asking to participate at chat who were not on facebook (or to open a chat room for them - not everyone is available on the same nights). However we have had NO additional response from anyone beyond the normal crew regarding interest.

I would like to try the IV chat, which may be good for the virtual crops that we have talked abou doing. We would all be in the same place, at IV, posting on the board, chatting at IV rather than having IV and Fb open at the same time.

I also reserve judgement till I see how the speed compares :). When scrapping, posting speed can slow creative momentum!

Wendy, would our chat room be open only to us to use at any time, or would we have a set/assigned chat time? If we wanted to have a randowm all day chat, say on a Saturday or Sunday, would we have to reserve that?
