In only one way was it a success insofar as it identified some people that cared enough about the site to come...and that wasn't many. What do we glean from this I wonder?

Agreed. Also, I think we discovered that 6PM EST is not a good mutual time for a live chat. Nice meeting you Kukla!

Side: A great success

Very nice to meet you as well Loudacris! I know it must be difficult to "hear" everything that's going on so one can answer properly and fully.

Can everyone be a part of these? When is the next one?

Side: A great success

Yes, everyone can be a part of these meetings but they only come up every so often. Any concerns or questions you have should be sent to them via the Contact Us Link...otherwise you'll wait forever.

I enjoyed it. We exchanged real ideas to enhance the features and functionality of the site, and we had the opportunity to enjoy one another outside the somewhat adversarial paradigm of debate. From what I saw, some good ideas got tossed around and will culminate into something one way or the other. I'm just glad I happened to be around.

There were some things we decided:

- not to list who down or up voted

- the research tab needed work

- it would be nice to have the ability to add more than one reference

- voting will need to be better defined

- the new front page looks great, but that the style needed to be applied to all pages.

It's always great to chat with the wondrous minds behind the scenes. I appreciate very much that you want to hear from us. So... when does CD stop being "beta" and you update the logo?

I somehow feel left out...

Oh wait, that's 'cause I was!

I feel a bit let down after our 'meeting' this evening. I don't think I'm clear on much of what went on there and I don't think we settled much, if anything. Perhaps this is the way they are always run but I feel continuity was lacking with different comments being thrown in. I didn't have this in mind when I was first informed of it coming. I thought we'd bring up a subject and talk it through or let one person at a time air their laundry list and discuss the topics brought forth. Many of them were the same as others I'm sure. It seemed like whenever someone jumped into the room, and no matter what was being talked about, the new person had the floor. It was a bit of a hodge-podge way of conducting it, I think.

I feel much the same way. Especially considering the number of people that were there. Hopefully the next time we have something like this it will be a little more organized, perhaps following something akin to parliamentary procedure, though a very loose version of course.

We could be much more formal... Robert's Rules of Order formal, if necessary. But where's the web 2.0 fun in that?

You did have to keep leaving, though. So that could have contributed to you feeling disappointed.

I "left" twice...once for about 45 seconds and the other for about 30 seconds. I scrolled up and read what had been said. I don't remember anyone taking a vote on the non-identification of those who down-vote, do you? Voting should have been decided tonight...it's waited too long as it is to have that cleared up. I don't remember them asking if anyone was in agreement with anything mentioned actually...or if they weren't....why they weren't. The 'Research' tab hasn't worked since I've been here and neither has another tab while you're setting up a debate but you can access the function through the moderators panel. You can put as many reference URLs as you wish within your description box or your comments over and above the one area listed and you always could. It was always planned to not have the pages tiled but to have all the pages the same as the first one. I didn't hear much on that topic which was rather a non-topic since it was already pointed out in the original announcement.

I only wish I had a copy of the entire thread of the conversation so I could go over it again. I hope they post it but they probably won't.....I can't see them doing much else than giving a synopsis of it, if they did anything at all. I tried to get in several things but couldn't but I'll write it all down and send it by other means. And what was the deal with name calling...I didn't call anyone a nut. I said if anyone did (whatever it was) they were nuts. Why did you get on me so hard on that?
