Question about Carla's new Q&A
Thanks for the announcement. I'm thrilled that Carla has a new way to share her perspective with people who can't get to her events in person, and that is more comfortable for her than the chat typing.

I am confused about one thing in the announcement. Is the chat link connected to the chat feature on b4? Or is there a completely different chat feature on blogtalkradio? If the latter, it might be helpful to add an announcement at the b4 chat while the radio show is on, with a link to the other chat site.
Also I originally tried a reply to the announcement post, as it says to do there. Got a message about not having rights to post there. I wonder if it might be better to open a new thread in Olio (or a new subforum) about the radio show. Before or during each episode, people could post questions there. After the episode, people could use that thread to continue the conversation. Maybe this could be an additional use of "sessions in focus." What do you think?

RE: Question about Carla's new Q&A
I didn't try to post in the announcement thread because, well, I don't have a question for Carla yet! Tongue I wonder if others have... I do like the idea of having a separate thread for each q and a session though! (like it's done now in that forum) 100 page threads aren't very fun lol...

Yes, this will be a lot easier for her. And, more personal and friendly as well. We're very excited about it! I think it will be fun and informative for all.

Sorry for the confusion! No, it has nothing to do with the B4 chat. Blogtalkradio has its own chat.

Good idea!

Ah, I see what happened. There is both an announcement and a new thread. The announcement said 'this thread' with a link to the new thread. The announcement can't be replied to, but the actual thread can:

Miscellaneous > Q&A with Carla L. Rueckert > Submitting Questions for "In the Now - Q&A with Carla L. Rueckert"

We'll fix the link so it's more clear.
