Our Meetings use a variation what is called Standard Online Protocol to simulate the various mutations of Robert's Rules of Order used at Face To Face Meetings.
Type ! if you wish to share--this is equivalent to raising your hand at a meeting. We ask members not to raise their hand until the meeting leader had finished their opening share. That way no one will be missed.
Type ? if you have a question--if will be answered with an Instant Message or a Whisper.
Type "ga" when you're finished sharing. "GA" means Go Ahead.
Please wait until you're called on--ga UserName--by the meeting leader before sharing.
Meetings run very smoothly when we follow this simple--once we understand it--protocol.
To make everyones experience at AAOnline a happy one, we ask everyone to observe the following Room Purpose Reminder:
The primary purpose of the availability of the AAOnline Java Chat room between meetings is to provide a place for continued discussion of recovery and for providing a place for the fellowship that will enhance recovery.
Please bear in mind that we are all personally responsible for our own conduct in meeting this purpose. For example, engaging in personal attacks, vulgarity, and off color jokes may be seen as discouraging to the purpose of the room. We ought to all be aware that we might be the only copy of the Big Book that some visitors to the room will ever see...
