Bulletin board networking versus live chat

  1. Have only been on allnurses for a short time and find the bulletin boards great stuff!!!! So why are the live chat forums so empty? Maybe we can have a wine *oops* I meant whine there some time and do some live networking

    Hey Step, welcome to the boards! They are a hopping place! The chat goes through it's highs and lows. I've found that the best way to chat here is to start one up yourself. The best sessions have happened when someone just posts "GET INTO THE CHAT ROOM NOW - I AM THERE!"

    And maybe it's just because of the time I go in, but it seems to be most populated around midnight EST.

    Again, welcome!

    I tried the chat room once, but I didn't care for the everybody talking at once thing--it was too hard for me to follow the conversation I was having--kinda like being at a cocktail party and having to listen to EVERYONES' conversation will still making sense of the one you personally are invilved in--too hard for me. But I guess they're great for other folks.
