Default Chatroom, new forums, general suggestions

We have a number of new members from diverse backgrounds here and I have been receiving PMs asking for new forums and a chatroom and so on.

First of all, let me say again, welcome to all new people here, the influx of energy is amazing and most welcome. We are definitely going to grow, and I know I speak for the team here in saying we very much want input and ideas from everyone. There are changes in the works here (that we feel sure you will all like) but input is essential. One forum idea I was asked for is definitely in the works.

So just pulling together several ideas here into one topic, I know some of this has been discussed in past but we've had forty- something new people in about four days, so let's revisit it.
What do you want to see happen here? What works for you at ESF? What could be improved?

A chat room would be really cool. I think they only way to do that though is for a pop up chat window and I wouldnt be able to access that... Maybe a search function for visiting old threads for sources. Several times in the past I have known thread names but took me forever to actually find the damn thing.

Ok - thank you! I think fairies can go in a subforum of general occult? Crystals etc will be part of the new Nature forum.... organic gardening should go in the sustainability forum.... small business, hmm, Im liking that too, A subforum of OT?

Chat - for sure, not for a bit though we have a lot of technical stuff to get done first, but it's coming.

Great ideas!

Thank you - I have to get the other areas in there too(Buddhist, Native etc) am holding back because we are backing up files right now and its less work for Flailing idiot to do if I just add the new things afterwards. Did that make sense? I'm not a technically minded person, lol.

I think what I'm going to do is this.

Interspecies can be a subforum of a larger one just called Nature (unless anyone has a more descriptive name - this can always be changed, too).

Then the Nature forum can be divided as we need. Can you or anyone suggest sub-categories?

Cloaky, I'm an avid nature spirit myself here, although pretty sharply divided, as I grew up in a city and still have a great yearning and need for the citylife, at least in small doses.. I am so grateful for this push (gentle) to getting the forums organized!

I really like the idea of a chat room. Everything else is just fine to me.
