The last two weeks we’ve seen OKC Central Live Chat go on for two hours. Folks, I love these chats. But I can’t possibly do two hours every Friday. I’m hoping you will help me keep today’s chat a bit shorter by following a few steps.
First: The earlier you log in questions and comments, the better. There is ongoing confusion about the order and frequency of questions and comments that post on the chat. Questions and comments can be posted starting at 9:30 a.m. at the NewsOK Business page, with the chat starting at 10 a.m. If you’re curious why folks like Gary and Nick pop early and often in each chat, it’s because they’re logging in at 9:30 a.m. and getting on the front of the line. Others who log in at 10 a.m. or later will see their questions and comments post with any where from a 10-minute to a half-hour delay.
Sorry. That’s the way this thing works.
I don’t typically censor questions unless they involve personal attacks or are otherwise inappropriate. When the chats go into overtime, I skip questions that were already posted.
And that leads me to a request – please don’t re-post questions unless you are absolutely uncertain that your first attempt was logged in. Again, the later you post, the longer the wait.
Also, while I appreciate the interest in the so called “mystery tower,” please understand, I won’t be breaking this story within a live chat. It’s just not going to happen!
I’m not saying don’t ask questions, but please understand, at this point I have nothing to new to share that I haven’t already provided to readers.
I really appreciate all that you the readers, especially those who contribute regularly to OKC Central, have done to help make these chats a great success. These are great discussions that are being read by thousands of people. You have provided me with great tips, great insight into what interests you, and a shared excitement for what’s ahead for Oklahoma City.
