I definitely agree - in fact I think we need to prepare a emergency protocol in case the site actually does go down...for a long time.
I know on hotmail for example you used to be able to "create" a chatroom and give out a password for those you wanted to invite in. There are also probably other sites where we can "meet" temporarily....anyone have any ideas???
We should designate someone to be in "charge" in case of a website meltdown....so we are all contacted and know where to go....like an emergency home fire drill!!!
P.S. I think I mentioned on the other thread about establishing a weeklyl chat on this site as well? Not sure if this will work with the different time zones.....any suggestions?
