Hello:

I know that some of you would like to see the chat come back. Well, here's some good news. The editors and mods are working on it. We wonder if you would like to continue the classic text chat, or to conduct the chat as a Zoom call. Please respond to the poll with your preference. We also would like to hear what are best times for you on a Sabbath. Thanks for your feedback.

Wow! :woohoo: That’s great. Thank you, I have never been on the chat so I don’t really know how it works but I’d love a Zoom call. A regular text chat is fine too. And Saturday evening would probably be best because we go to church and after, the park usually on Sabbaths. Probably around 6:00, 6:30?
Thank you so much. :cheer:

A text-based chat is the best way to go imo. I remember emmykitty saying something about internet trolls hacking into their session. Besides, I don't think it's safe to show your face or your voice with others who could be potential stalkers.

I say, for protection, we keep the regular chat. Maybe say 4:00 pm? I'm on Jamaican time so that would be like 5:00 pm for you guys. I don't know if that would work or....

Voice doesn't really matter in my opinion but I like chat better.

They can't just track you down by voice unless you're saying where you live or any other personal info.

On zoom you don't have to put you're cam on.

That's very likely.
So, it's safe to say we all agree on a text chat, so far.
Actually, chances are, majority of all Guide members will want a text based chat.

Y'all...

If they are suggesting a Zoom call, it's because they figured out a way to do it safely.

FYI, Uncle Andy Live was held on Zoom if I remember right.

He's busy probably with school.
But he'll be super-excited to see this.

How about we think about the pros and cons of both the text-based and Zoom chat? That way we get an idea of what would happen with each and, thus, figure out which one is the better of the two. Remember, we have to be aware of all possible outcomes.
