I would like to make more use of chat so I'm thinking creating subject specific chat rooms might help. Apparently anyone can do it and they magically will pin themselves to the side bar of the main and meta sites.
So I've taken to plunge and created one that we can use to discuss Dharma books that we are reading. I've an idea that if it's a specific subject then people are more likely to chat. I would love to know what the regular contributors are reading or anyone really.
I've a though that we could gradually create rooms on a number of different topics (the sanghas we practice with, meditation etc...) . Maybe we could every few months post on meta to say that we will try to contribute to a certain subject. There are a range of subjects that I would like to chat about but don't fit into the Q and A structure.
Perhaps I'm over egging the site and I should just leave as is. Anyway feel free to ignore or downvote as you feel. Just a thought and all that
