UPDATED (June 1): Marcel has eliminated the password requirement and has changed the way the room operates, so people can organize their chat sessions more easily. It's not necessary to show up at 9 PM anymore. Folks who are interested in getting together in this chat room should take the initiative to set up chat times on their own. Have fun!
I'm still on hiatus, but thought I would post this info from Marcel Cairo. He has kindly set up a chat room to host readers of this blog who would like to keep in touch with each other. He writes:
I have set up your room within SoulMotel.com. The room is called Prescott_Pavillion and the password for that room is “psi-fi” (all lowercase).
My suggestion, and it’s only that, is that 9PM (EST) is a good time for regulars to gather. This is only at first, as people get to know the site, and the word spreads. The chat room is open 24/7. Prescott_Pavillion can be found by clicking on the “Show Rooms” button located above the user panel, or by clicking on the “roam” tab and selecting “room list”.
There are other rooms for other blogs and forums, but this has just launched, and it may take months for this to gain any type of traction, if at all. Your promo of it while you are on hiatus would probably help.
BTW, people who log in at other times, and get there once their pals are gone, can click on the “action” tab and select “Recent room history” and see who has been chatting earlier and what they said. This is also a way for people to leave each other messages in case they miss each other.
Many thanks to Marcel for his thoughtfulness in setting this up.
