Dutifully taking advice given to me from fellow chatters.
Thank you. I need this.
I hope to open the chat to all again, 11pm east coast US time Saturday.
My wistful hope is to gain other already trusted individuals to moderate and create other open timeslots, *especially* slots that are of a friendlier time to Europe, as well as to AU/NZ.
I again apologize, that the chat does not have the look I hoped would be more affable to our younger and future replacement girl lovers, but at least you now once again have the ability to make your voices heard. That part was incredibly key, from my perspective at least. You will become the ones who acquire chat and influence, proven over time and being tested, and might be able to elicit chat's vision for yourselves later, but again, only after proving yourselves. As the ancient wizard Ringo once said, "got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues."
What was I talking about? Oh yeah. I was advised to announce in advance when chat will be open. I think it's a great idea, and I advise anyone else granted moderation powers to listen to their chatters and decide if said advice is goos or bad. Take the advice of honest others to heart when it's blatantly reasonable.
After so very long of no responses here, I'm pretty sure it's a no-brainer to have a timely response or action to people in the new chat. True girl lovers need to be sincerely heard. They haven't been, for a long time. Hear them, and if it makes sense (while maintaining security), try your best to honor them.
