    Hi ID,

    We are going to try and have at least a weekly chat session to both welcome new members and discuss whats going on at ID. Of course the chat is open 24/7, this will just be a time to collectively try to meet up. Post times that are good for you in this thread (in GMT please). If there is a wide range of desired times we will try to move the weekly chat time so different people may join in.

    There could be docents in the weekly chat. The admin and forum staff of course would be people new members could ask questions to, but too many people asking them questions might annoy them. So there could be certain members who are docents. New members with questions could ask the admin/forum staff and the docents if they have any questions. I think since this is going to be a time to talk about things going on at ID and other ID stuff it might be hard to stay on topic with new members asking questions in the chat. So if the members with questions not related to what is being talked about in the chat room, then they could send a personal messege to an admin, other forum staff, or docent. Not only would this make the weekly chat less hectic, but it would also give the new member or anyone else asking a question a more personal way of getting their questions answered.

    For those of you who do not know what a docent is, it is someone who knows a lot about a certain subject and help answer people who have questions on that subject.

    I think for someone to be a docent on ID they would have to have been a member for a set ammount of time. Maybe a month to start off with, but when the forum grows and a lot of new cool things are added the time needed to be a member would be longer than a month. The person would have to know the rules, guidelines, everything about the site. Not the bb code for every smiley, but the important stuff. They should also have to come to every community chat unless they cannot come because something came up.
