When is the best time to chat?

Post by Bieneke » Wed Nov 30, 2005 9:58 pm

I received a message from someone asking me this very question because there never seems to be more than one other person in the chat room. So what is the best time to chat? And the best day?

Netherlands & Belgium are in the GMT +1 time zone.
=============================================
Ik ontving een bericht van iemand die me deze vraag stelde, omdat er nooit meer dan één ander persoon in de chatroom lijkt te zijn. Dus wat is het beste moment om te chatten? En de beste dag?

Nederland en België bevinden zich in de GMT +1 tijdszone.

Would this be an appropriate place to invite those interested in chatting at a particular time? It has been quiet in the chat these days.

Maybe we could set times/days for different levels:

maandag 7-9pm beginner
woensdag 7-9pm intermediate
vrijdag 7-9pm advanced

Of course anyone is welcome at any time, but if we can get a few people to commit to those times, and maybe meet others around the same level, we can get more traffic in the chat.

Yes, and I'm not sure if it the best time, but the poll would suggest it. I'm not sure how it will even work for me, but maybe we can just go with that for now.

I'd quite like to find a time to chat in the kwebbelhoekje, coz I'm only ever able to chat really late at night (late night GMT time, lol). Though I can come on any time in the evening week days. Anyone else?

Tussen hakjes: Kan iemand me de betekenis van de dobbelstenen op het kwebbelhoekje duidt?

Misschien dan moeten we al een speel van hoger of lager zodat ze niet nutteloze worden.

Then maybe a game of higher or lower is in order, so that they're no longer 'nutteloze'. :)

It looks like nobody came for the advanced chat last Friday. Not a good time? I was too busy. We can still try for a beginning chat this evening. Anyone welcome! :D

I like to chat with you all, but I can never chat on Mondays (at least, not for a long time).
Friday is usually ok, but unfortunately, last Friday I wasn't home.

Bieneke, is it possible to get again some marker behind the name that tells you if somebody is in the chatbox? Something like the degree sign we used to have?
