For the past couple of months, I have been in the recommendation chat and it literally is dead for the couple hours that the event is live.

Should this still be going around? Is it a bust?

Should we schedule different events to replace it?

The initial enthusiasm (ahem) has waned down, and there hasn't been an actual recommendation chat event in a while. Unless someone speaks up, I'll unschedule it.

We've started a different chat event: SF topic of the day. There, the principle is that someone proposes a topic and others reply with examples of works (optionally with a short critique). Some topic examples were interpretative dance, guilt trips, books set in Asia earlier than 1700. A topic remains for a day or two, which gives everyone around the globe a chance at participating. This perpetual event didn't really take on, but then we didn't put the word out. So consider the word being put out. Please visit the SF topic of the day chatroom once a day or so!

  • I'd still love to have the recommendation chat still around. Maybe people can try to promote it more in their Answers. Commented Sep 22, 2011 at 18:27
  • @OghmaOsiris So propose a time, and publicize it. Ping any mod to create the event once a time has been decided.
