scheduled chats?

I'm a chat type person, I love getting to speak to people on a more direct line.

So my idea is (not really my idea, i've been seeing it implemented more and more across the web) is to make a scheduled chat once a week on a pre-arranged subject (Reef, planted, FOWLR, SA/CA cichlids, asian fish, etc.) with people experienced in those subjects commit to a couple hours to answer questions on the subject.
So say on Friday, Saturday or Sunday (or whatever works out best) for 4 or 5 hours we have tha chat on the predetermined subject which gives people a chance to hop on and get a quick answer to a small question that has been bugging them for a while or get large-scale advice on it.

Of course, there will still be tons of fun in there too, you can still have fun while your at it too.

Just an idea...

(I've really been wanting to use that smiley )

I've been recommending this for quite some time and willing to jump on the bandwagon once again

Great idea! It would be a good way for people like me whom are pretty new in a way to the site maybe some even to the hobby to get in a chat with someone who has say over 1000 posts or 500 or something like this. It would be a good way to sit down in a sense, one on one or even in small numbers to be able to talk to people who have experience on this site in particular or in the hobby!

I'm still all for it, but it's dependant on other people's input. How long do you think it should go for? 12 to... 4 pacific time? And then, what should the first topic be? General setup, FW, SW, ponds (getting into that season), cichlids, tetras.... any suggestions? We'd also need some experienced people willing to commit an hour or two to helping on the subject, since I'm more of a lurker here I'm not sure who would be best to ask...

Anyway, if we get it all set I'm all for next saturday.

I think it is a very good idea to have scheduled chats. I will talk to the site staff and see if we can have something done about a "notice/sign up" type thing on the main forum page. We have an excellent chat feature that is rarely used. With chat you can get live help right away as well as get into some great discussion about tanks.
