Tips for Chat Meetings
There is no real protocol for "informal" chat gatherings in our open chat rooms, but in our meeting rooms, we try to keep it as much like a face-to-face meeting as possible. Just as in a face-to-face meeting, we do not interrupt the person who is "speaking" or crosstalk after they are done.

Also as in a face-to-face meeting, someone serves as the "chairperson" who opens the meetings, picks a topic and helps keep the meeting focused on the topic discussion as members take turn sharing on the topic.

If you wish to share, type an exclamation point like this: !. It's like raising your hand.

The chair of the meeting will then call on the next person to share. In our chat rooms it is best to type short lines followed by ". . ." which indicates that you are not finished. Like this:

One of the best tools I have found ...
When I find myself under stress ...
Is the Serenity Prayer ... [done]

The [done] at the ends shows that you are finished and the chairperson then calls on the next person to share.

That's it. Those simple tools can keep things orderly even in a full chat room.

For instructions on how to log on to the chat rooms and how to use the Icon buttons at the bottom of the chat room screen, please see this page.
