Those are members online, not necessarily chatting or even aware they're in Chat. There are no in depth descriptions to give, Maiden.

Say hello.. see if anyone responds. Join a conversation in progress if you like. Invite your friends to chat.

Easy peasy.

Yes, that's exactly right.

I've tried to get this changed, but haven't received a response yet.

Welcome, Paul!

Click on the Chat box located on the bottom right of the page.

Chat away.

You might want to review our SR rules.

I am not too sure if I am chatting to anyone in particular. I'll get there. Just wondering if anyone is around the two year sober mark as I am am. I keep expecting something to happen - I know, nothing is going to happen!!!! I mean, I suppose I am wondering what now, or, what to expect next. I seem to be doing ok...learning.

I see you chatting now, Paul.

You can also post in the forums. I'm sure we have members at the 2-year mark. Here's the link.
