Posted: Fri Dec 16, 2005 10:25 pm    Post subject: Storychat  

A couple of months ago, I tried to get a regular storychat going every week, but we didn't have enough interest. I still would like to do storychat regularly, and it's been suggested that maybe we should try to do one once a month instead of every week. Post here if you'd be interested in doing a storychat for two hours once a month, probably at the same time we used to do them (Sunday at 10:00 AM Pacific, 1:00 PM Eastern, 6:00 PM British).

If we get enough interest we'll schedule a regular time, such as the first Sunday of the month.

In case you don't know what storychat is, you can read a description or view archives of the previous storychats.

I'd like to have regular storychat, weekly or monthly. They always turn out fun.

OK, cool, looks like there's a lot of interest. I'm thinking that we could do the first Sunday of every month, but maybe we do the first one on January 8th, since the first Sunday next month is New Year's Day.

I don't know the Indian time, Muaddib, but it's sometime late at night. If this works and there's others who want to join but can't make that time, we can shoot for another time that's better for the people in Australia or Asia.

Aye, it would be about midnight Indian time. It's early hours of the morning in China, so I probably would miss these, much to everyone's relief I am sure!

I miss storychat. i still come on at storychat time.
Why dont we do it twice a month? Once at normal times and then once again at a time that suits everyone else who cant make it. Then everyone gets a chance to storychat. Maybe not the same story but all storys around here are brilliant, so it would be fair. :D

I won't be able to do a storychat tomorrow as I'd hoped, but I should be able to do one next Sunday, and then we can do them regularly one per month.

Do you think the storychat can be salvaged without Key?

No, no, you guys should always feel free to storychat whenever you want, you don't have to ask my permission. I just didn't want to schedule one and then not show up myself.

To be the author in the storychat area, you have to know the password. I don't like to post it publicly, but jnmrcs and a few others have it, so if you're interested in telling one, you can get it from them or you can PM me and ask for it.

Where is the storychat area? I can't find it anywhere.

And as far as storychat... how many people are still interested?

Thanks to everyone who came on this Sunday, we told a couple of fun storychats, which you can read in the archives. The next storychat is at the same time on the first Sunday of next month (February 5th).

How are the storychats saved? We had a storychat the other day and I'd like to see it again.

Or is it gone? If I was supposed to save it, I didn't know how. I was the host (I got the password from Smee) and I enjoyed it. I would like to keep it, but if it's gone, I guess that's it.

How about it Key? Can you access old storychats?

Hey Lebrenth,

Congrats on your first storychat! I like it. :D

The story and votes are automatically saved (click on "Recent history" in the storychat window to see it), and then from time to time I manually move them into the archives. The discussion is not saved automatically; if you want to save that, you have to click "history" in the main chat window and then cut and paste whatever you want to keep. It's probably too late for that for the one you just ran, as it only keeps the last 500 lines or so, but in the future, if you want to save that, just copy and paste it into a text file (and send to me if you want me to put it in the archives).

Thanks Key! I'm relieved! Too bad about the messages though. I'll have to remember to copy those if I do another. Those storychats are fun. I hope I'll be able to join the next one... but probably not.

And thanks for IF. I love this place.

Just a reminder that we'll be doing storychat tomorrow (Sunday) at 10AM Pacific time, 1PM Eastern, 6PM British.

I'll do the authoring if there are no other volunteers, but I'd love to have someone else run the storychat this month.

Hope to see you there!

:D
