Some forums are designed solely for social conversation or discussing leisure interests - social chat does help people to ‘gel’. If you meet others face-to-face this happens naturally - you chat, discover things you have in common, find out who knows about what, and have a moan together and so on. The same kind of thing can happen among an online group within a forum.

The Café is OPEN!

Hello Logos,
This sounds like a good initiative.  Thank you.  I wonder whether we should give the Online Café its own Forum, rather than leaving it as a thread within the PCN Britain information and feedback forum?
Your earlier thread about how forums can be best used was valuable too. I learned a lot from it. Thank you.

Thanks, Andy.
I’ve come across the use of an Online Café or Common Room before and it can work very well. It may help longer-term navigation and maintenance, if the other forums are placed in the top-level. Glad the thread about using the forums was helpful too.

Readers wishing to contribute to the Online Cafe should visit the forum which has now been created, bearing this name. 
Thanks to Logos Ledbury for this suggestion
