It's usually chat night on Friday night. But turnout has been very low for a while.

Anyone can start a chat. The link is on the front page, left hand side. Everyone is welcome and people can start chat whenever they want and post (or not) to let other people know they are in chat. I'd love to see people using this feature whenever they want!

It can be a bit wonky, and the default (if I remember correctly) is really big font, which means you can't see a ton at once. You can adjust your settings on the top right and choose a view that feels good to you. You can also change your avatar in there as well as your font type, color, and size.

Check it out! Play around in there, and then invite some friends.

I wish I could chat from my iPad. Im sure youd all want to spend a lot of quality time talking about my shower rod and pillow arrangements.

I think a big reason for the drop in participation is the increase in the number of people who use only mobile devices. I have a computer but it's rarely convenient for me to use it.

Amiga-- we've certainly discussed similar things in chat!

Pooh, I think you're completely right. I can't imagine only using a tablet for stuff (I get too annoyed!), but I know lots of our regular chatters do that now. I am attached at the hip to my laptop (for work reasons, too), so I always have that available.

I think inundating the Editor with requests for chat that works on mobile devices might eventually work... or not
