Repost from Felinae at Tales From The Scratching Post
There was already a chat room set up for the American Preppers Network, a few of us meet up there nightly. On occasion, the room has been at full capacity and it makes it hard to follow a conversation. It is a fun chat room with lots of good times and laughter, but sometimes, the talk amongst the men can get a little rude, crude, controversial or just a tad boring when they start speaking geek. ( a term of endearment that we women started calling it…Geek Speak)
A few of the women and newbies were put off by some of the stuff they were “hearing” in the Wolfe’s Den (Hehehe, sorry wolfe, I just named your chat room) Which is why Kymber thought it would be good to set up a new room with me as moderator.
I was a bit dumbfounded as to why she and AP wanted to name the room after me. This is what I was told, more or less, when I asked them why me? Well your blog is a comforting, non controversial place and people know you for that, so we think by naming the chat room after you it’ll make people want to come hang out. This was my reply, umm…ok, I guess it is a good idea, I’ll do it.
When wolfe and AP set up the chat room on the 22nd, this is what I said “I have a warm, fuzzy blog and now I have a comfy, cozy chat room” LOL!
Seriously though, it is a good idea. The room was mainly set up so that the ladies of the Preppers Network could have a place to come hang out, talk girl talk, trade recipes and what not without feeling uncomfortable with stuff that some may consider offensive.
The room is not exclusive to women, men are more than welcome to come by and visit as well. My room is open to anybody that wants to drop in as long as they follow the rules.
Felinae’s Lounge is set up so that when you log into it, you are automatically logged into what I am now calling Wolfe’s Den, which is the original, main chat room and vice-versa. You are able to bounce between the two rooms by clicking on the tabs at the top of the chat box. There are also other chat rooms in the planning stages, to view them you can click here Preppers Network Chat Rooms
The Lounge, like the original room is open 24-7, but most people start showing up between 7:00-7:30PM PST. I myself will usually show up anywhere between 6:00-8:00PM PST depending on my work schedule. Right now my room is kinda slow as most of us still hang out in the main room. Hey, old habits are hard to break
Please feel free to join us in either room, but if you’re planning on visiting The Lounge, just be aware that bad language, politics and Geek Speak must be checked at the door. They are not allowed, this is just a comfy, cozy place to come hang out with friends, chat and have a good time in a non-confrontational environment.
There is a link provided to the right, at the top of the sidebar. I look forward to seeing you there.
Have a great day!
