Guide and procedure for hosting and posting the Weekend Chat

Provide Your Own Answer

Monitor, Comment and Respond

Make sure that everyone is being nice and treated nicely. Flag anything inappropriate or smooth everything out with words.

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. *

Thank Yous

Thank all visitors to the Weekend Chat for visiting the chat, questions, answers, comments and replies.
