    I figure a lot of RJ'ers at some point are online and we're posting and the threads get replies pretty quickly, so...

    I propose a social hour on RJ chat! I know know, Forum people don't mix with chat people, chat people don't mix with Forum people. Still I suggest at a predetermined time of the day we head on over to the non-adult chat and socialize IRC. Any thoughts?

    There's already a chat room. All you have to do is populate it.

    Funny, back in the 1980s all I used was chat rooms. Then I got onto bulletin boards with postings like RJ threads, and I liked that format. Then I went back to live chat rooms when the BBS fad died. Now blogs have become big, which is a kind of personal bulletin board, and I've also settled on sites like RJ with the bulletin format. So now it's to be live chat again?

    The thing that used to drive live chat was a room topic. You entered a room that had a designated topic, and that was more or less the focus of your chat. It might be cars, or romance, or politics, or living in a certain city, or being within a certain age range. And with the big international online sites like AOL, you could keep a room full with people of like interests in a given topic.

    The challenge with RJ is that you don't have that many people online at any moment, usually under 2000. (1212 as I write this, with 70 in chat, a rather high ratio, perhaps a temporary bump due to this thread) Not enough to support very many specialized chat rooms. And general chat rooms tend to quickly becoming boring or uninteresting.

    Still, I'm willing to give anything a try, and have done RJ chat before, including webcam & audio. But I think there's a reason it's not popular here.

    SAY WHAT?!? you mean I can't mix with you Forum People because I'm a Chat Person? This is the first I've heard of it.

    Btw, no one really uses the Non-Adult Chat, just interject yourself into the Adult Chat...

    OK, so I just went into the chat rooms, 3 members in general and 55 in adult. Not a single screen name I recognized. And the chat was painfully forced, reminded me of a bad cocktail party were people are trying to think of things to say in order to be conversational, since they're stuck being there and have to do SOMETHING. And you wonder why chat here sucks?

    I'm kinda new here, but I don't think the conversations are that bad.

    The interesting thing I noticed is, here, everyone has lots of pics...there (adult chat)...waayyy less guys with profile pics.

    Makes me wonder if guys will get an account just to ogle the live video guys, or if lots of guys here get a temp fake account.

    It's also impossible to chat in the adult chat room....it moves so fast, but I expect most guys aren't their to read the articles anyway.

    i'm a bit slow, i don't understand how chat really works. icon_redface.gif

    i understand how forums work, but chat seems too chaotic for my simple mind to grasp. icon_cry.gif

    and i didn't know there was a division between chatters and forumesse.

    can someone explain this to me? (and be patient, i still think two tin cans and a string are superior to my current p.o.s. cellphone, and i still believe that air conditioning works by magic, so i'm a bit slow icon_cry.gif )

    OK, so I tried the RJ chat room for a few hours, and as I said above, it was like being at an awkward cocktail party. Trying to make conversation about nothing, just to appear sociable and engaged. I attend enough of those already in real life, I don't need to replicate it in the virtual world. icon_razz.gif

    I really think the 'chat' room is about virtual sex isn't it? Kinda a Jack-O-Rama thon. Thing.

    Yeah, I think that may be the real focus. Not general discussion, but hook-ups & virtual sex. And that's fine for guys who want that, except I don't want hook-ups & virtual sex, so I'll continue to just stay out of there.
