    Destee and former Afronutz & newbies:


    As far as i understand, the eShare chat format
    that we were all so used to was dropped by those
    other people and now we all are at a loss.

    Afronet/ Destee chat was a truly great place.
    Mature & Dignified - yet humorous and goofy.
    Sexual and Controversial - yet endearing and friendly.

    I mean - we were the only place in cyberspace
    that ACTUALLY operated like family !!

    I propose this:

    If it's a money issue ...

    how about asking a few of the more affluent devotees
    of Afronet/Destee chat to kick in some dough
    so we can go back to enjoying the chat format
    we are used to and deserve.

    In exchange for the loot and the improvements in the chat room,
    everyone who kicked in money will be made partner with
    Destee. Maybe we can have a better chatroom.
    Maybe Destee.com can branch out into more lucrative
    web efforts and become a stronger force in black internet culture.


    Just a thought.

    Hypnotize ... i think this is a wonderful idea, but i'm not aware of all the pros and cons associated with it ... nor have i done any recent, extensive research on chat solutions currently available. Let me do this first, at least seeing what our options are and how much they cost. I'll be reporting back soon.

    Thanks for the love :love:

    :heart:

    Oh - I didn't mean "Chat Solution" as an actual term.
    It was just the title of my post.

    My actual idea was just a propositiong --

    I was merely suggesting that the DESTEE chat room
    could be upgraded back to it's former format
    or better if more money was available ...
    and more money could come from faithful destee.com
    members who have a little extra to spend ---
    and in exchange for the money - those people
    would be made partner with you, Destee.


    Like this:

    Destee + eshare/ afronet = Nice Chatroom, great online place.

    Now that eshare/ afronet is no longer in the picture its like this:

    Destee.com + chat = not so great chatroom, less chatters.


    If we could take

    Destee.com + Investments from loyal chatters

    it would equal a better chatroom for all
    and the people who invested would be made partners
    in Destee.com

    Hypnotize ... Yes, I recognize what you are suggesting and am very honored that you, and perhaps others, would be willing to share financially in keeping our home alive and thriving. Truly I am humbled and so very flattered. In my previous post I intentionally tried to sound not as moved by the gesture as I was ... yeah, a Sista try'n ta maintain her composure and not start :cry: all over the page ... yes, I felt your love.

    It seems many are under the impression that the chat has been a joint effort, provided by both Destee and Afronet. That is not true. Since 1999 through today, only Destee has paid for the chat solution we've had, not only paid for it but customized, maintained and supported it. All cost has been on me, and yes, the bigger we grow, more resources needed, more depressed economy, etc., etc., etc., ... the more money becomes an issue.

    It would be a dream come true if we could all own a part of this community, if we own it we'll pick up paper around it and stuff ... ya know? It's just that i'm so busy doing what i do, not aware of the many considerations (legal and otherwise) regarding what you propose, and i don't have the resources to look into it properly.

    I'm spread so thin right now, I don't know when I'll really be able to look into this in the manner it deserves. Perhaps you and others could do some searches on the net, share the info here ... let us begin together learning about business ownership from the perspective you propose.

    I do appreciate your suggestion Hypnotize, please know that I do. Even if this never materializes into what we think it could be, I will forever be blessed that you offered. Thank You Sweetie :kiss:

    :heart:

    ONLY HYP.........

    .....would offer a solution using other people's $$$$$.

    Not to be a killjoy but a partnetship of this sort wouldn't work--think too many cooks spoil a pot. However, if we all could make a small donation/contribution and not look for ownership or partnerships, it might work out better. Gone would be the legalities of such a "joint venture", we would entrust Destee to captain the ship like she's done in the past but help with the associated costs.............

    I agree with monetg. There are so few dignified places on the net that chipping in to make sure we have a place of our own shoud be an act of pride and respect not business. I'm sure I would not be the only one willing to support what I deem important without the expecting a return. At least I hope that is the case. Destee all you need to do is let me know where to send the money sweetie.

    Are we chataholics or what? Dre...is that you? Scorp, I can't get enough of seeing you girl! It almost feels like old times...without all the four-letter words, of course! lol Hyp...let's see how much support your idea will get. Destee, I know you're busy and I, for one, appreciate all that you've done and continue to do. I don't have a clue about this technology stuff. Maybe members of the chatroom who are more skilled can research costs of supporting a better chat environment and report back to us. I know there are a few in the room and I won't call any names but I'll leave a clue. One claims to drive a short yella bus and he gets a bang out of playing with his marbles!!! *lol*

    Hey, has anyone heard from Valiant359 since he got married???

    Scorp ... :love: ... A007 ... :love: ... Queenie ... :love:

    Thank you all for the love, support, confidence you've placed in me! I'm so very humbled ... so blessed ... thank you. :grouphug:

    I am so excited too !!!! :jumping:

    Oh My Gosh !!!!!!!! :jumping:

    We are going to have a brand new chat in just a few days ... one that i believe is even better than our previous chat ... I have no doubt that you all are going to love it !!! :wink:

    I don't wanna say much more than that right now ... i need to compose a thread explaining everything in detail ... as soon as it's all worked out. I can say there will be a small fee involved. I'm not sure exactly what and how but the new thread will include all of that, asking for your input, ideas, suggestions, thoughts, etc. ... just like always.

    Please don't go far yall ... i'm working as fast as i can!

    :heart:
