Aurelian's set up a "TW Chat" on Facebook. Anyone that's friends with either of us (or Tana), holler at us in a FB message and we'll add you. Be aware, even though we can give you your TW handle as a "nickname" the name you use on your Facebook profile will show up on the "who's in the group".

I don't think anyone who knows me would be surprised to find me in such a group tbh

We have a chat set up, for the time being, and we did find a way to turn the notifications off. I use my computer, not phone, but I can understand how it would be quite annoying.

Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy

I do not book the face! People can find you, so nope, double and super nope. Have fun for what it's worth.

Discord is great, I'm all for it!
If anyone is concerned about privacy enough to be sceptical of discord I could offer and alternative.
http://alpha.stryve.io/ is a self-hosted new alternative to Discord.
If it's of any interest I would be willing to host a server on my webhotel so there are no hosting fees.

(But I have no idea what Discord is...)
It would be great to be able to chat with y'all again though.

For those not too familiar, Discord is basically a Skype-esque communication platform, with a focus more related to gaming networking than purely communications (as Skype is). It allows for in-game overlays and things like that, but it is 100% compatible as a purely communications platform, and in my opinion is a lot better than Skype in that regard, as it draws less resources than Skype does and it's just a nice user interface overall.
You don't need to use your personal information to identify yourself (name, location, etc- unless this has changed recently) and you can be involved in multiple channels simultaneously. I'm not a part of any witch-related Discord communities, but they are out there. Channels are pretty easy to set up and maintain, and you can appoint multiple mods and admins to keep the peons in line.
Personally, I am not a fan of Facebook, I've had it deactivated for a few years now. I'm pretty asocial and reclusive, but the few times I do go off to chat, it's usually on Skype or Discord, the latter being my personal preference. Discord has text based chats, voice chat channels, and the ability to call users and create group calls, I believe. I can't remember if there is video chat enabled yet, been a while since I booted it!
Hope this helps!

OK, this was discussed over last summer but I don't see where a room was created or announced? Was a decision made elsewhere and I just missed it?

Not yet, I 'm looking at two options
- Discord as has been mentioned - haven't used it but havve downloaded the discord client to check it out. I believ everyone would need tto install the cleint software on their own computer like Skype.
- Blab Chat which is self hosted - this requires mne to update the databse to a new 'collation' (tech speak for a more modern database scheme / language) which takes time to do and test that everything works. Benefit of doing this is that I can then upgrade the forum software to the latest release - more time to do and them check everything works.
Both optiions will take a bit of time to do which I haven't had with work commitments.
I know nothing, I seek everything.

Is there any way we can help, Droghon? Also, thanks for the update!
