Have people been attending the chats?
The European (2nd & 4th Saturdays) had so few people that I had stopped attending those, so I'm not sure if people still come. Now even the US (1st & 3rd Saturdays) are becoming very quiet, with only a handful of people each week. Granted, there hasn't been much news of late to talk about.
Believe it or not, these chats have been going on for *26* years! We started in the summer of 1995 on AOL, and it grew from there. Back then, the chats were only once a month, but because there was so much activity the "official" chats were expanded to twice a month, and finally to every week.
Now that it has become quiet, I'm thinking of returning to only once a month, or perhaps once a month each for the US and Europe, if people still attend on European time. Of course, the room itself is always open and available for anyone to use at any time, but it would free up MY schedule each week if the "official" chats were cut back a bit. It would just be a matter of changing the information on the chat page, but people are still welcome to stop by and use the room as they always have.
