just a small remainder that we are not sure what's waiting for us in the next page of our life. but it's important to hold ourselves and try to face the situation life brings to us. if you are going through any bad phase please share it with anybody... anybody....be it one among us or be it any of your friends. try sharing your thoughts and feelings so that one can be with you when you really need them. try to be strong and not give up. we try our best to be there for you in whatever way possible. and for the listeners who are doing a brilliant job here. you guys are great... there are people who need us and we should try our best to help them out...no one knows what one might be going through...what might be making them depressed and sad so anyone who is reading this, weather you are a listner or a venter to this site...try to help anyone who needs us... try to be there for them.
the long wait to get a listener (or a talker) can be a problem. people give up and head over to another site, which is not as good as this one, but which does not require an extended wait.
i would love to get more users here. how would you suggest we tackle that problem?
maybe enabling the listeners to create a custom room over this side can be a solution. like it happens at times that many listeners wait here for too long and give up the wait after not coming across any venter for too long and vice versa....so if listeners are able to login to the site and turn their custom room active and when a venter comes to this site ...they can get connected to the listener without waiting for too long and the listener getting notification for the same so that they can show up .... ??
can't that be accomplished already by leaving a tab open in the waiting room? the notifications aren't a bad idea, but i fear anyone who signs up would be getting 20+ notifications a day. it's a very noble thought that you would essentially be on call and i speaks well about your intentions to suggest it. i think one of the best solutions would be increasing traffic to the site. i don't have much money to spend on it and i suck at social media campaigns, so the site so far has been relying on word of mouth to grow so far. if you have any ideas on this front, i'm all ears
leaving a tab open and then returning back to the same after a while makes the browser refresh the page to re-establish the connection with the server and it's more likely that the listeners might be busy in some other important stuffs when they get connected to any venter who comes online ..making it difficult for the listener to rejoin the room...and about the notifications one...we can limit the venter request to 1 or 2 per listener....yes it won't be as easy as i'm saying but we can give this feature a try :-) and dear"big boy ben" you already did a great and an amazing thing by creating this site ...the importance of this site can be truly valued by those who came here when they were all sad and low and went back with even a bit of positiveness with some great efforts by the listeners and by all those listeners like us who find them lucky to have got a chance to help or be with someone who is in need and ...we all can't thank you enough ✨ . you have been putting lots of efforts for many out there and i think now you need a team ! a group of people like you who would love to get involved helping others and about that social media thing...i think instagram is the best platform to reach out to more and more people and make them aware of this very amazing platform but at the same time it's important to see that some people who just think of having a random chat or anything like that don't make it difficult for others who come to this site for very genuine reasons.
