Hi gang,

In my ongoing upgrades and changes in what I hope will be a major update/expansion of Gotmead this spring, I have added a new function for our patrons. When you log in, you may notice a chatbox at the top of the forum. It hangs out on the main forum page, under the menu.

This is for you patrons, who have so generously supported GotMead. It is for hanging out and talking, and we will also be scheduling chats with Famous Personages (like Oskaar, Ken Schramm and other notables) for helping with mead making and such.

If you have other ideas on how you'd like this new service to be used, let me know. Email me at gotmead@gotmead.com or reply here to let me know what you think.
