With all do respect to you and the board, what are our chanced of getting a chat room. That way, we do not have to go round and round within the posts. AC-online, or AC-messenger. I for one would be willing to pay a monthly fee. That way when we get into these converstations, we wont be draw out of the original topic. Just an idea or suggestion.

This way there will be no sarcasism among the people that really need info and the negative posts wont be as high, cuz it will all be deleted.
Thanks,
Jackie

agree - dang jackie - some times it's scary. I was having the same thoughts a couple of days ago.

Re: Marty - 04/12/03 05:36 PM

I have been thinking about it. Cuz, there are times when you just want to be like hey, ask a question or say something, then you get into all of this. Plus, if people do not know us, they may really be turned off from the board. Was it the day we were playing YO-YO?

that's a great idea. many of the really negative posts are very contra-productive trying to promote Belize and her people. A chat room would be great. Recently, many of the potential tourists and travelers have been reading these negative, over blown-up posts that do not reflect the land, waters and the Belizean people. What stuns me is when a business man or woman would bring out such dirty-laundry on a international website. Best-Wishes To All, Mel S...

Those of you who want to have your own private chat room, a suggestion:

Vote on whether you'd like to use MSN Instant Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger as your chat program. Open up your accounts. Make a private room called "Ambergris Chat Room" or similar. Don't worry about imposters trying to come into the room...even if someone like that gets in you can ignore or block them out. Do bear in mind, though, that geniune members of the chat room ought to be allowed to vent steam, argue and be genrally up front with their opinions...only block out a member if he/she becomes out of controllably abusive/insulting.

n.b. I'd opt for the Yahoo! software. My vote goes there.

MSN my preference, but ya can't open "private rooms" there - people can only be "invited" to a conversation - IMs's are not quite the same things as a "room" -- sure it would work, but not as seamlessly or as user friendly.

Re: Marty - 04/12/03 07:01 PM

was really hoping a chatroom could be integrated here, to slip in and out of as the need arises. I didn't really want to leave this site to go to a chatroom, but thanks Chris.

Re: Marty - 04/12/03 07:09 PM

In Yahoo! you can have private rooms. Problem with Marty doing a chat room is that HE has to pay for the server space so that WE can let off steam...not really fair on him.

We had the pleasure of a great chatroom, provided by a then board member.

It was great, and many of us here today chatted there every night. We found the most wonderful helpful people chatting with us. The bonds remain today, on this board.

Chatroom, really weeds out the chaff from the wheat quickly. Meaning chatters that love to grandstand and dominate, opposed to those that want to share and have fun, either joking or reliving their Belize vacations.

Re: Marty - 04/12/03 07:14 PM

we understand that, Chris, and I thought it was understood that we would be willing to pay. Might be too much of a headache for Marty, though. Thanks again!

Re: Marty - 04/12/03 08:12 PM

I tried to create a room in Yahoo. Although I can get into a chat, I couldn't create the room - I don't know if is because of aol or some other conflict. Do you know what it is like to be in a room with a bunch of teens chatting??? ARRRRGGHHHHHHH! and that was the only comment I made while there. If somebody else could create it, I will be there!

you got to be careful with chat rooms, most consist of pedophiles and FBI agents pretending to be teenage girls.

Re: Marty - 05/05/03 11:42 PM

OK, guys - how about Tuesday, May 6 at 8:30am Belize time? Unless the power goes out again. We had an outage today but it was because they shut power off to deal with a fire near the airport (just a shack or something - no major deal).
