By the way, I am Yahooable - you can get to me from the 'Y' link in the posts - if I'm around I'll answer. Best to keep the serious debate in public though.

We have been thinking as a longer term plan of getting some live chat software on the site and having chat sessions with invited guests from the chocolate world. As a precursor to this, if anyone is interested we could set up a 1 hour Yahoo conference sometime to talk about fine chocolate. Anyone can participate, but I would like to publish the results on the site, so you would have to agree to that - I think it could be interesting though.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

cheers.

Sounds interesting to me too, but why Yahoo? I've nothing against Yahoo, though, but I'd prefer to have a chat room available here instead if that's possible.

The reason for Yahoo is simple - it's the only one that you can get a direct link from the forum to launch into a messenger session - if the member has it in their profile. None of the other IMs allow this (or if they do the forum guys can't get it to work.)

I want to get a chat running here, but it's just finding the time to get a good one and build it into the site.

How about Sunday 6 June at 18:00 GMT (19:00 BST) for an hour? Hopefully this could fit into everyone's days.

Let me know if your interested and we'll work out the details from there.

Yeah, a Yahoo chat sounds fun and interesting. Suggest a series of times or offer a consistent time and day to hold them. That way, a wider selection of people can participate instead, because you won't be arranging the chat according to one person's schedule.

I'd be very happy for the opportunity to have an open chatroom available at all times. Of course we could arrange particular times as well.

Ok, let's try for 16:00 GMT (17:00 BST) on Sunday 6th June 2004. I'll set up a chat room in Yahoo before that and post details here.

Even if it's only a few of us to begin with, it will be a start.

I think if we all chat together that is great, but I think a permanent chat room would be hard to maintain. We may look at getting some software here later.

Yes - now you get the idea!

The great thing about postings here is we are building up a fantastic resource about fine chocolate available for anyone. It is almost becoming annoying for me to search for something in Google and to see a link to the forum!

You couldn't be more right, Martin. My self-esteem get messed up when searching google for info about a particular chocolate ending up with links to this forum and my own postages ...

Messenger would be better. If we get a chat room you might be able to access it from the web, but I'm thinking a messenger conference might be better - we'll have more control.

Ok, I'll make the room soon and let you all know the details. Drop a note here if you think you can make it, so I know who to expect and numbers.
