The ASF chat rooms have seemed to died off in the recent months. Even when people post, "Come chat with me in 30 minutes" no one goes on. I want to create a grid, or schedule for specific chat times for everyone to see. Hopefully we can pin this thread or schedule to get more people to see it. By doing this we can publicize a national schedule (amongst ASF members) showing times to go on ASF chat. This way people can know a specific chat time where a decent traffic of people will enter the chat room. Additional to this, I want to make different chat days for specific subjects. For example, tech Tuesday at 4:30 PCT. People can go on at that specific date to discuss a topic or get an answer. I'm going to make a schedule, but of course, I need people to give input so I can finalize a permanent schedule. Now I want to pick a time, considering different time zones that will be favorable to most everyone. Right now its the summer, so the time schedule is more flexible. Of course when school starts we need a time more towards the evening. I want to only do 2 main chat times a day. I also don't want a time frame. People can chat however long they want to. Having a time-frame means people getting on at different times which makes it harder to have to get a good amount of people together on chat. Too many people will pick different ones and amount of people on chat is small. Since this schedule is destined to change a bit before finalized I will need a mod to help me edit it. In my chart I'm putting PCT and EST time because there is the biggest time margin. CST and MST will fit in-between. Additionally here is a time zone chart for the United States: Time Zone Chart

///////////////////////////////////////// MONDAY TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY

4:00 PM PCT or 7:00 PM EST // General Chat / Tech Talk / Gas Guns / Free Discussion / Loadout/Gear / General Chat / Events
6:00 PM PCT or 9:00 PM EST // General Chat / Tech Talk / Gas Guns / Free Discussion / Loadout/Gear / General Chat / Events

Now here is my time frame for a week, now you tell me what events or discussion topics you want inside. If you have any ideas please share them and give me suggestions. Hopefully we can get the finalized, publicized, and pinned by a mod.

Great idea OP, how about something like:

Monday - Sunday - General Airsoft Chat, Help New Members, etc.
And more specifically, -
Monday - General Upgrades and Tech (Ex. What type of bucking should I put in my G&G Combat Machine?)
Tuesday - New Releases and Game Tactics (Ex. "______ has created a new version of the _____, and it will now shoot >9000 feet farther, and groupings are within .2 inches!", or "If you hide behind walls, you generally won't get shot by 6mm, or occasionally 8mm, plastic BBs fired from airsoft guns.")
Wednesday - Gas Day (Classic Airsoft, Gas Pistols, GBBs, HPA tanks, etc.)
Thursday - Brainstorm! (Come up with original ideas for airsoft, and see what other people think of them)
Friday - Loadout/Gun Set-Up Day (Tell other people about your loadout and what its based off of, then tell them about your primary airsoft gun and what you've done with it)
Saturday - Fun day (Talk about whatever you want, as long as its appropriate!)
Sunday - Upcoming Airsoft Games, Field Ideas, etc. (The name says it all)


Of course, this probably won't be the actual schedule, but at least it's a start. I think that the 2 chat times that you gave would be perfect (4:00 PM PCT/7:00 PM EST and 6:00 PM PCT/9:00 PM EST). The chats would probably last ~30-60 minutes each.

thanks for the input, I'll add it in. I'm not sure if I want to do this, so I need more input. Do you guys want the 2 different chat topics a day or the 2 chat schedules to be the same. The reason for having different times is because everyone has a different schedule and I want to spread out the chat times amongst the time zones.

Getting a calander going about when chat will be most used is a great idea and would probably help repopulate chat.

The idea of having specific topics on specific days won't work though. They used this back when chat originally started and it quickly fell appart. People are going to talk about what they want to talk about, when they want to talk about it.

^this.

And because I'm against one word posts, Pretty much exactly what airborne said. I support the idea, and Like the times, but regulating chat topics won't work.

This sounds like a great idea, but the time zones may get confusing to some people, that chart should help with that. Really, we wouldn't need topics, because some people may not want to talk about upgrades or tech, and may just want to talk.

This is rather pathetic, why not just find a reasonably active chatroom rather than "scheduling".

I'll cut out the subjects then, and just leave the time frame. But I need a mod to edit it.

I really like this idea, I am always looking to talk to fellow airsofters about the sport but can never find a way how to. please try and make it work, but make a time for people who have to work at night, like one at 10 or 11 am

I do try to get on every night at 7 and 9. however I usually end up forgetting, and not getting on until half an hour late.

I'll try to be more punctual and get on the chat room AT 7 est and 9 est.

Why yes, I do realize this is a necro. Now that that's out of the way, I just figured I'd bring this back up. As when it was first posted, chat was almost always 4-5 people in when I entered, and I remember once we had 12 or 13 on. I figured if it worked the first time, reviving this thread could help do it a second. Times are already reasonable, and I'll try to start getting on everyday at 7pm EST. Thanks, and don't forget to drop in. ;)
