    Ok I see we have a chat room. I have never been in one at all. I won't let the kids go in one for reasonable reasons.With them being teens(11, 14, and 17) they THINK they can do everything I do so I have to be careful with what I do. I would like to join in someday to see what it is all about. I would like to know they work before I do join in on it. Because it does sound like a lot of fun.

    the chat room does work ... i can understand you not wanting your teens accessing them but the one here is very friendly. because of the different time zones its a case of trying to find a time where ppl are online at the same time

    I can understand being nervous at first. Just click on the 'chat' button and step in and watch for a little bit. You only have to give info you want to give. You can exit as quickly as you entered with a click of the button.

    It's lots of fun, but you have to read and type pretty fast to follow along. Sometimes it is hard to follow the conversation, but the younger ones seem to have no problem with that, just old people like me . I love it!

    I am too slow for the chat room. Went there once and haven't gone back. My fingers don't work that fast.

    My computer hangs-up or freezes, whatever you call it, when I go in this chatroom. I've used lots of chatrooms and thank you, I'm not a pervert either. I just love to chat. I've made some awesome friends on the 'net' .

    blessings,
    Ruth

    That is how I learned to type so fast, not here, but in another chat room. It improved my skills SOOO much! At one time I was up to about 50 wpm.

    It is a fun place and only those of us that are signed up on the quiltboard are in it. We chat and laugh about many things including quilting. Sometimes it gets really fast if there are a lot of us on. But please come and join us. This is the only chat I participate in.

    The chat room is fun. Just read and type and answer if you want to. It was my first (and only) chat room too. The first time I went there one of the people there typed "Hello littlehud". I freaked out and logged off right away. I don't know why it scared me but it did. I went back a week later and stayed and found out it was fun.

    You should give it a try! I can type fast and have no trouble falling the chat. Its just that I babysit for 2 small ones and a 13 yr old. When I go into chat I'm always popping away to chase this one or that one. When I get back I have to catch up on the coversation!

    You should absolutely join the chat room. There are lots of friendly people there. Most people say hello when someone joins the room. There's nothing to be afraid of, come join in on the conversation! :D

    I go to this chat room occasionally and I also go to another one on Paltalk. It is a chat room for 50 plus chatters. It is G rated and a lot of fun. Some nights it is music nights and others it is chat night. We have a ball. The owner organizes a chat meet once a year. I have been to 3 of them. It is a nice clean friendly group.

    This chat room is so much fun. You will enjoy it. You can type and enjoy it, but remember never give your personal information in a chat room, instead send as private message.

    Also in the chat room you can also chat privately with who you want in a separate room or be in the big room!

    Have fun!

    I'm one of those who generally say "Hi" when someone arrives in the chatroom. To my way of thinking, it would be like someone sitting next to you and ignoring them if I didn't.
    The topics are all over the place, but if you have a question or comment, just type it, and someone is generally there to help, or point you in the right direction. And sometimes, it's just good to take a break with kindred spirits.
