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

    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice. 
    • Hi   I'm in the UK so brand recommendations probably no help to you, although we have Uncle Ben's over here which is fine to my knowledge. I have to say I approach rice on the assumption that it should be safe unless I hear otherwise, that may not be the best approach if as you say you're particularly sensitive and want to cover all the bases. The exception to this is the precooked rice you can find over here in pouches designed for the microwave. That can be a problem.  If you have a brand you normally use or that's readily available you could try googling it to see if anyone has reported issues and of course contacting them directly to check with them. This forum is also worth searching in that way as over the years there's been many accounts from users of their experiences with different brands and products so you could try searching a brand name with them.
