Hi Meka,There is a regular meeting each Tuesday evening in the chat room. They usually begin at 5:30 Pacific, 8:30 Eastern. In addition, a number of book clubs are springing up, and of course, these occur all days of the week. Otherwise, the chat room is a pretty spontaneous place. Some days will be quite silent, others will see small, and sometimes not so small, groups of people populating the room throughout the day.
I can tell you that the vast majority of the folks who you will encounter in the chat room are kind, patient, and willing to help you if you find you are having any problems getting the room to work for you. Your previous experience is one I've lived through as well. Many chat rooms become very unfriendly places to inhabit, thanks to the regular users.
A good website to add to your favorites list is: http://www.friendsofbookshare.org Here you can find a schedule of events taking place in the chat room. Enjoy, Scott----- Original Message ----- From: "Meka" <mekawh@xxxxxxxxx>

To go in to the bookshare community room? I haven't done the voice chat thing in so long, and when I did, people kept saying that I was too soft, or that there was background noise (it was very hot and I had a fan but it was pretty far away), or a myriad of other things so I ended up quietly ducking out. This wasn't a bookshare-related thing, however.I know that I'll be going to the validator's conference unless we have band practice that night, but I'm wondering if there is some type of schedule that people follow or if there are some of you who trickle in to the room from time to time.Thank you.
