What will Gearslutz be like in the future? Will pro-forums like this get more options for interacting with visuals and sound, 'conferencing' with webcams?
Masterclasses? Group discussions? All on-line or more meet up's in person?

I would be interested in these dimensions developing but would be very cautious.

How about you?

I'd settle for a realtime chat room...

I'm happy to set one up if people are interested..

I tried doing this a couple times of paltalk. I never got enough traffic. One one ever has the time.

I kinda like the chatroom idea .... maybe set up chat sessions with special guests etc etc ...

Also the webcam / chatroom thing is kinda neat .... we could all join in there, bring girlfriends and have a .... oh oh ... wrong website ... sorry ...

My thoughts... in random order..

I am not such a fan of live chat..however I am open minded about it.

I worry a little that it may 'dilute' Gearslutz or cause a sub group that is a 'split' or splinter group from the core Gearslutz userbase.

(Gearslutz has alread 'diluted' other on line audio forum sites somewhat - we have got all the best folks to come here!)



I wonder what the good folks out there with poor or 'shy' english would do?

Still, its a free world...That's the joy of the internet!

I HAVE asked Meg the Gearslutz Web Mistress to look into a live chat option for the site. Do you mind waiting until she gets back off her US tour?

Thanks!



Jules

YOu reminded me, Jules - on Meg's web page, there are photographs of the band wearing T shirst saying, "**** YOU - We're from Texas".

Where can I get one of those?

If GS goes the live chat route, what happens when we want to reference a certain "post" like we can now? I think there's already enough chatter to sift out when I'm looking for a specific piece of information. Also, being from everywhere between Europe and the USA, I don't think enough people are generally logged in here at the same time to have a productive live chat session. If it is scheduled, more people have a chance of showing up of course, but as posts and replies go now, they happen throughout the day on any given topic. Besides that, as engingeers, producers, etc., daily schedules can be pretty random for many of us.

I have my doubts but I'll try it.

I was kind of thinking in the next five years rather than the next five minutes..
but if you set something up Jules good luck!!

I think it would change Gearslutz but it might be worth a try if people want it..
I'm not sure..
