I think it would be great if we could get an online chat room going on here. Any thoughts or ideas, maybe?

I think this sounds like a wonderful idea. Before hand, you could have an agenda of topics to discuss and then make a date for the chat. What a fun way to meet other members, too :)

Not entirely sure. Thought it sounded fun though. Everyone having a glass of wine or wodka. Shooting the breeze.

Oh....Wait.... Sometimes we do that on the Tickle Thread.

It's kind of like yahoo messenger. You can talk live in real time kinda like talking on the phone, but instead just online with us folks here on the website.

I remember doing that once on a trivia game site. It was full of 12 year old boys typing "penis" and " show us your boobs". Our chat room would be more highbrow with discussions about gas and poop. :P

I used to be paranoid to read the forum because I thought it WAS a chat room!! I'm not that tech savvy and I didn't know the difference between a forum and a chat room...Probably gluten paranoia had me back then, but I ain't scared of y'all no more....so I'd be in!

Chat rooms can be a pain. I used to run one. It was fine for a while, then the kids found it. I didn't have the time to babysit it all the time.

As I see it there are two options. Make it for registered users only or have moderators around the clock.

Also free chat rooms seem to be hard to come by these days. But you never know. Maybe it could happen.

I know some of the forums come with chatroom software. Not sure if this one does. When I ran a graphics forum, there was an option to have a chatroom which we sometimes used. The only way a person could get access was by being a member of the forum so we did not have the worry of outside people coming in.

Hi Everyone,

Although I am not sure at this point whether I will be able to add in a chat feature, did you know that you can add your chat info into your personal profile, then connect with other users who do the same and are online? For example, in your profile area you can add the following type of accounts:

AIM

MSN

Website URL

ICQ

Yahoo

Jabber

Skype

and then you can connect to others vie live IM chat who have also put in their info...just a thought. Basically live IM chat requires a large amount of server resources, and most of the larger internet companies give these services away for free now, so perhaps you can test it out and let us know how it goes?

Take care,

Scott

I'm thinking even if we couldn't have an open time 24/7 to chat, perhaps a scheduled time every week?! I think it would be great to be able to chat real time!!

Don't need scott to set one up. You can download an IRC client (mIRC for you windows users) and join/create a chat room on any of several dozen IRC (Internet Relay Chat) networks. I looked around a couple years ago when I was first DX and was really surprised that there was no #celiac or #glutenfree on EFNet. I used to help OP several singles chat rooms years ago. When I was single. :)

Yes, and on top of this if you go into your personal profile for this forum you can enter your gmail, yahoo, msn, etc., instant message info and then you can connect with whomever you like via live chat, as long as they have also entered their info.

Take care,

Scott

    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life! 
    • Nation's First Free Food Pantry for People with Food Allergies or Celiac Disease
      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      This is a link that will explain sreun panels for infants under 2 years of age. http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2013/04/18/update-on-celiac-disease-screening-in-infants-and-toddlers/ The author of that is a doctor, has celiac herself, and is a member of celiac.com. Here is a link that tells you about her: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/about-me/   This link will also give you information: http://www.beyondceliac.org/living-with-celiac-disease/info-for-parents/testing/ Quoting from it in part: Celiac Disease Testing in Children Under 3 Blood tests are not always accurate in very young children. If your child is less than 3 years old, you may be advised to see a gastroenterologist instead of relying on blood tests results.
