I believe a chatroom could be a valuable tool on TAM; however, I believe it should be strictly moderated by someone who works as a counselor. At the very least, a mod who has counseling experience.

I was on a board that had nightly A.A. meetings in a chatroom setting. They worked because they were structured and run by a person who had the credentials to do so.

I think before a chatroom can be instigated, it should be discussed with the folks who are administrators on this board, as well as all the mods. JMO.

I think a chatroom is a great idea. But i think it would only be helpful if its like a group therapy kind of vibe. One persons problems at a time. Which might slow things down. But i still think its a great idea!

i'm in, spinning around in the room all to myself.

i think the final determination was that others looking for help would benefit more from threads, and having all the responses readily available to read through.

Okay, so contact the mods and forum administrators. I have no issues with a chatroom, but I don't want a free-for-all where anyone can post anything.

Thus, we need someone who can moderate on a regular basis. The other forum I belonged to had specific hours when members could join in on a discussion topic. Reason? This allowed for control over the chat.

We have folks on here who are dealing with the pain of addiction in their partner - be it porn, dope, or booze. We have folks on here who are dealing with the pain of infidelity. We also have plenty of people who have general questions about their marriage just going BLAH.

So how about you pose to the powers-that-be that we have several chat rooms that target specific issues?

Well its mibbit, which means its IRC based. It can be multiple rooms, which is awesome. With a shoutbox we could just integrate that into the forums and it would automatically refresh while we were surfing. In case anyone says anything that catches your attention. I love these forums and I'm okay with them, a few people wanted a chatroom though, so I made one, that's all. I'm out of the chat thing though, but I will pass moderator to anybody willing.
