Hey guys, is this a ball park idea?
I'd like to see a few more of you UK and European people in the Chat areas.
If Djk,PaulUK, and Dapo can make it, why are you guys holding out on us?.
We even stay up late to see if any of you guys are going to log in!.
C'mon Guys, play fair!.

I second the vote for some input here.
The ECN Chat area is meant to be used by all Members, but no single time is going to be best for everyone. We need more than one scheduled session. What day(s) and time(s) are best for you?

Please offer some suggestions and lets schedule a regular time that's convenient to most of you.

No obligations, of course, but if you can manage to come by it's likely others will be there too.

It may be difficult for some to plan a time; I know that that's often the case for me, as I seldom know in advnace what time I'll be logging on.

But, if any of our international contingent want to suggest a chat time, we could see if we could arrange something.

By the way, I want to congratulate all of our European members for their excellent English. I realize that a "real-time" chat in a foreign language is likely to seem more daunting than replying to a post where you have all day to read and translate the message if necessary.

If anyone is hesitant for that reason, don't worry, I'm sure we'll all make allowances. After all, we English-speakers have something of a reputation for being lousy at other languages!
