Default Daily - Weekly - Numbered chat thread

We used to have numbered chat threads that we just kinda restarted whenever it got long.

Then we recently started a daily chat thread which has seemed very popular.

There has been some discussion that the daily chats are great, but they are hard to catch up on.

So here is a poll, let's figure out what everyone would prefer!!!

Sandi, My vote is for the daily thread. I like the daily threads better and it seems as though a lot more people post on them when they are daily threads.

nobody agrees with me? nmy point is, that if i don't get in here one day, but then i read that thread and feel like i want to reply to someone, we're already off on the new thread. i guess i could just reply in there, thus making the thread pop up to the top, but do we really want two or three days going at once? so if i replied in the NEW day's thrad, it would seem to come out of nowhere. i dunno.

i guess the only solution is to come here every day, huh? but sometimes... i just can't!

I agree with Holly and I think that the weekly thread would be a NICE compromise.

It's SO hard to keep "on the ball" if you're gone a day or two... I can't imagine being gone a week. It's way more fun, convienient, better, etc. when they stack up a bit. I think weekly would be best. My two cents!

So, what is the positive to the daily threads, because, I can't really see it? Though, I'm sure once someone points it out, I'll be enlightened.

Yes, that's what I like about the daily threads too. It just seems like everyone is more likely to stop and post a note about how their day is going.

Ooh...polls closed at a tie! Well, I like both daily and weekly....However, I think it depends on the group. I spend more time over in Atkins and we do a daily chat there, but we quite frequently get up to 3 pages just on one day, so it makes sense to do a daily. However, on the 20-somethings page we do weekly, which works out great since it's a less active board - the weekly threads don't get imposingly long.

The daily is nice because I don't feel so 'out of the loop', and if the convesation ever dries up...well, there's always tomorrow!

We could always try the daily chats for awhile and if we're not satisfied, we could give the weekly chats a whirl...

hmmmm, I thought I set it to close on Friday. I will see if I can get it back open. Can't seem to right now, but I will try again.

Ok, all better!! Vote away! It's a close call!!!

OK... I have another argument for "weekly" because, frankly, sometimes when I come and tell you guys about my crisis, I want replies and I often times don't check in 2, 3, 4, times a day or reply about yesterday or the day before's post. We'll have all these daily threads all over the place. Just a thought.
