Journals

  • Christian Chat is a moderated online Christian community allowing Christians around the world to fellowship with each other in real time chat via webcam, voice, and text, with the Christian Chat app. You can also start or participate in a Bible-based discussion here in the Christian Chat Forums, where members can also share with each other their own videos, pictures, or favorite Christian music.

    If you are a Christian and need encouragement and fellowship, we're here for you! If you are not a Christian but interested in knowing more about Jesus our Lord, you're also welcome! Want to know what the Bible says, and how you can apply it to your life? Join us!

    To make new Christian friends now around the world, click here to join Christian Chat.

Not sure if it's been suggested but, how about a Journal thread? It would give us an opportunity to learn more about each other -- get a peek into each others lives, hope's, dreams, prayer requests... or is that what the member intro thread is for? 🤔

Thread? Threads are made by users. You just created a thread suggesting Journals. Do you mean a subforum?
The suggestions forum is a bit of a waste. They have only ever taken one or two ideas from it in the years it's been up.
Many of the suggestions are ideas for new subforums, which is nearly a guarantee won't be used as Robo wants to keep the number of those down to a smaller number, which is actually smart, I think.
Most other suggestions require modifying the site for custom use, which the software the site is built on doesn't handle well.
Look at the chat apps. He had three up, but no iPhone. Now the ones that he did have eventually broke and he just began removing them as well. So even things that existed were removed rather than fixed. So new stuff doesn't seem likely.

Sometimes the "miscellaneous" or "blog" forums will have journal like threads individuals make, but it's not often people post super personal stuff. Seems like even the personal, serious post get derailed and attacked, sadly.

Yes. Subforum.

Ah, well. That's too bad that this site isn't being updated and improved.
