is it possible for us to have one?  or maybe a link to a chatroom where people can log on and chat?

do we already have something along those lines that i dont know about?


and if we dont, would anyone want one?

A chat room might be interesting to have. The question is are there enough of us on at any one time for that to be worthwhile?

We do have a chatbox, at the bottom of the home page, but it’s public and hardly ever used. If I’m up too late/too early, I usually just use the PM to chat with anyone who’s likewise sleep-deprived.

My concern about a KS chat is that it’d be hard to control. It’d just take one fapper to derail it, at least temporarily. And we don’t have enough mods and admins to cover a chat room 24/7.

Best,
UN

One possibility would be to start a Wire chat group. Ground rules: Same as KS, one violation and you’re booted. Anyone want to run it?

Best,
UN

A Wire chat group sounds like a good idea. People can leave messages there even if others are not around, and personally I like Wire for it's privacy.

I like Wire, too.

One problem I have with a chat associated with the forum is that it is likely to “take away” from the forum. I’m not strongly opposed to it, though. I just don’t want people to stop contributing to the forum because they’re discussing everything in chat.

I can understand that, but it would be nice to be able to chat with some people here, having conversations rather than just posting a message and waiting around for a response.

thats pretty much my thoughts on it too.  depending on how its set up, its even possible to remain mostly anonymous and still be able to voice chat with people if you dont mind people hearing your actual voice.  for instance, i chat with arabic speaking people all over the world with a language exchange app called HelloTalk.  its not uncommon to see voice calls with up to about 20 people all talking at once.  that app isnt exactly designed for security, but its still pretty easy to remain anonymous on it.  

something i have noticed is that voice chatting very much changes the way i perceive people.  once i hear their voice, i feel much more connected to them as people than when i only see text.

Edited to Add....

dont use HelloTalk to chat about anything consang related... i was just using it as an example. while it may be possible to keep most other users from knowing who you are, it is not a good platform for such things. i only use it to practice arabic and help teach english to arabic speakers, and im pretty sure it would be easy to retrieve recorded voice and text messages from the app.

just wanted to make that clear...

Hi, Olek,

It’s easy to create group chats on Wire. I don’t know the limitations on how many people can be in the group.

Tell you what. We can try a short experiment. I’ll create a KS group chat. PM me your Wire address and I’ll add you. KS rules apply and membership will be limited to introduced members in good standing only. I don’t promise to run it forever, though. If it gets to be too much, I’ll ask one of the other members to take it over.

Wire accounts are free: www.wire.com. Wire is about as secure and private as a chat service can be made.

Best,
UN

I don’t need to PM because I use it exclusively for these purposes. I’m fullmarriageequality and anyone here can add me.

Request sent, Olek. I’m unowen, if you hadn’t guessed. Once you confirm it, I’ll add you.

So far as have about six people in the chat. More are welcome.

Ground rules are the same as KS. Also, please don’t send any identifying information, such as real first names. Once it’s sent, it’s gone, and unlike KS, I can’t fix it. Surprised

Best,
UN

Would I be able to get in on this as well? I've been away from the group for a long time but just recently came back to it
