I could do an IM or webcam meeting. That would be fun :)

Web cam -- great idea!

You wouldn't really need a webcam, unless you really want to use one an IM service would do. This could be interesting, a true live 'forum' is what I've always dreamed of. The technology is here now, but what with everyone in different timezones, countries etc, how could this possibly be arranged? Are there any plans for this behind the scenes, among yourselves? Should I set up a new thread, so people can discuss this, and add themselves if they're interested?

Not all of us have web cams- anyway I think IM is just right! I don't know what the time zones are Saturn- we would need someone good at working that out and then setting a time that people can do.I say set up a thread for this yes!
I do hope you would join the "live forum"... :D

Yes -- how in the world could we all get together by IM when we're in so many different time-zones?
Isn't there something like an eight-hour time difference between the UK and west coast of the US/Canada?
Just the same, I'd really love to do this!

Cybele- it is entirely possible. :D There are only two time zones- Britain and USA. There is nobody else from another country who has said they want to do it- the ones who have are from Britain and the USA. I have spoken to people from Australia on IM in the past and that is a loooooooong way from Britain. We just find a time that works for people- it might be say, morning here and afternoon where you are.

Yeah but America has numerous timezones, but anyway I'll start a thread about this and see what we can work out.

We have 4 timezones on the USA mainland--Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern. I'm on Pacific time, which is 3 hours behind Eastern time.

Ah, yes -- and I've been a frequent victim of jet lag after visiting far-flung relatives! :lol: (And I've never been off the North American continent.)

I frequently exchange emails with a friend in Perth (12 hours ahead of us), Australia (another country with multiple time-zones). We often carry on a conversation that simultaneously spans two days.

One planet and many time zones. :D I think we can manage it though. I suggest an open time periods say- a few hours' span that allows for people to come in and out as to when they can get on the IM.I tend to leave my IMs signed in anyway when I'm online and able to "chat" (except for when I'm watching The Outer Limits on you tube...been addicted to it lately!)
