It took a little bit of time but I finally managed to make my way to the new chatrooms that have been made available to the StackExchange community.

Unfortunately there were not many chatrooms open, so I took it upon myself to create one for Professional Development / Mentorship, which I believe is something that at least according to my colleagues is something that people at all different levels in their career should be looking to do more of.

Any ideas on how to encourage more participation in chatrooms for UXSE?

    Given that you posted this question over a week ago, and I'm just the 16th viewer, I think the first question is: "Any ideas on how to encourage more people to actually look at Meta?" :) – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Mar 10 at 21:22

    Possible food for thought; ask other users what they want from UXSE and together push forward toward a shared goal. Become an extrovert who <s>pesters</s> talks with everyone and anyone, but not too much that it looks pushy for the other user(s). Allow 'off-topic' discussion and just generally banter with people. <s>Learn cult creation and integration skills.</s> I'd say the first problem is probably finding a couple of users to be the backbone of your chat. – user137266 Mar 16 at 14:52
  • @RockPaperLz-MaskitorCasket I would be surprised if this question hasn't been asked before. I will have to look into it in more detail :p – Michael Lai Mar 16 at 23:15
