About the Weekend Chat

Members can post in G2G at any time and receive answers and comments; It works great!

The Weekend Chat has a little different twist; its a weekly G2G post supported by the Integrators Project wherein members are invited to come together and "chat" about pretty much anything... but all in one place. In addition to being a real-time view of what we are doing, it provides weekly time-capsules of sorts for the future. You can Review Past Chats at any time.

Although it is not a true "chat" in terms of technology (it's a normal g2g post), it is monitored continually and we try our best to respond to each other in a timely fashion. Conversations are carried on at whatever pace the participants desire.

For lighter topics or when a stand-alone post is not desired the Chat is the perfect place to share.

For important topics, it's good to do both a stand-alone post and to post as an "answer" in the Chat. The more important it is then the more people should see it.

Rules / Guidelines / Procedures

As always, be nice. WikiTree is all about being polite and kind. Because our site is free and open and as genealogy is about families, in order to keep the chat fun for people of all ages, we need to remember our postings to the chat are open to the public. :-) So please no politics, crude language, or more adult type topics. Say something positive and above all have fun.

Please "flag" any inappropriate content. It will be reviewed, evaluated, and dealt with promptly.

Post as many answers on different topics as you wish, it's ok!

Everyone Is Invited to Participate

The Weekend Chat is for everyone. It's a place to catch up on what people are up to, and to share what you've been doing.

New members can say hello, introduce themselves, ask questions, and meet other members.

Our seasoned members can share what they have been working on, give tips and advice, or chime in on hot topics.

Post as many answers and comments as you wish! It doesn't hurt anyone to post a lot, and many will enjoy their multitude of reading options.

Leaders and Coordinators of Projects

You are invited and encouraged to contribute weekly news about your projects. Recruit new members, spread praise to contributors, share news or accomplishments or future plans, etc. We'd like to hear from each project regularly.

Best Answers

  • After much discussion, we have come to the conclusion that all answers in the Weekend Chat are of equal importance and weight. So we are going to discontinue the Best Answer portion as it adds points and then takes them away from posters and is causing some hurt feelings. So in the interest of everyone is equal and valued we will delete any best answers given which will deduct those points because it has been pointed out that to give everyone best answer is also not a viable option. *
