    I went several weeks ago (or was it months ago) and all I found was a big empty room. The silence was deafening. :blink

    Hi Stu,

    I've popped in a few times, and it's been empty. Think its
    best to try pre-arrange a meeting there as most people just
    pop in, find it empty and then go.

    I usually work till 9 thursday night but would love the opp to
    get to know people better, we're all like ships in the night lol

    Hi Guys - sorry for the disappointment [​IMG]

    I think the main reason it's generally quiet is that we all have different stuff to do, and it's not easy to get everyone in one place at the one time, You know what it's like - come home from work (if your lucky enough) and do the 1001 other things. There just aint the time for many folks.

    I'll have a look and see if we can organise things a bit more in the Chat Room - there have certainly been more than a few "nights of hilarity" in there, and it would be great to get that going again, moreso now that we have so many new Members on board.

    Thanks for the comments, and for at least taking the time to drop by anyway. We'll give the place a good shake, and then you'll be sorry :wink:

    Cheers [​IMG]

    As i said it's like ships passing in the night really, be nice to
    arrange a night to get together and bug each other really.

    I'm up for it, whenever you lot are, Callum

    It seems like when the chat room was opened 24/7 the chat nights just dried up. When it was open only on Thursday's at 8pm there was a lot more interest.

    Would be very nice to get this happening again.

    Jak, even as administrator it's not just 'up to you' to do something about it. As I pointed out when it was only open at a certain time I think people made more of an effort to be there at that time and then even if no-one was there they would still hang around. Now with it being open 24/7 there is no 'organised' time to be there so we pop in, see that there's no-one there and then leave. And yes, I am guilty too, but generally on Thursday nights after 8.:oops:

    I'm with you on that Nugget, I've popped in quite a lot, but
    as you say, we're all probably doing it and just missing each
    other. I am usually on my pc till late, even when I finish work
    at 9.30pm I still log on to relax and have a laugh with you lot,
    but I feel that only being open one night is better, and if its the
    same night each week, then everyone knows.

    I've just caught up with a thread about the 16th one which I'm
    sorry I missed, but will hopefully be logging in this thursday and
    catching up with you all ( watch out Rosy lol)

    hopefully catch up soon

    I guess theres nothing more complicated required than to say "pick a night, pick a time". As discussed elsewhere, either Wed or Thur from 7ish on is fine by me.

    The main reason it's not "open and closed" at a given time is that, originally at least, this had to be done manually mainly by Si (occasionally me tho) and it was a tad easy to forget to lock up again [​IMG]

    Keep up the discussions Guys - it's all healthy, and we'll deff try and enliven the place once again :D
