I just wanted to say i hope every one that is interested in support will come to chat...its a great place to vent, share, be silly, find common ground...and every one is welcome. I think it might be easier to feel welcomed if the "rules" of chat are better know...lets face it...we all clicked the box saying we read it but did we???? LOL...so i will do a quick run down of chat ettiquette and everyone feel free to add to this! -Its hard for most of us to read really tiny fonts so if u automatically raise ur font that is helpful...there is an AA above where the type box is and 18 or 20 is a good size to go to -Its polite to say hi and bye to those entereing and leaving...some days are faster than others and its no biggie if u miss someone but it is a nice thing to do -If someone is talking about a hard time or needs support ..either be supportive or u can go to another room like chit chat to have other discussions -There are all kinds of rooms at ph...most of us have overlapping symptoms and illnesses...lots of ppl from the dep room come to fibro and ppl w/ arth come to fibro...there is no need to ask someone to leave or to ask why they are in the wrong room...the site is welcome to all -Lately the site has been kicking ppl out for staying idle too long...u go idle when u dont talk for a few minutes...it is impolite to be idle so u can copy and paste a transcript from the entire day. Thats why they are cracking down i think. Anyway...i dont mean to rant...i just want lots of ppl to come to chat and find the support and help they need there just like i did when i joined. HUGS!
