Using this chatroom (or maybe one like it) it's a great idea. We chose not to use MSN cuz there are several issues with that, to begin with, it sucks... lol...
The whole thing it's pretty simple, we make the room like the one Gelfing made for this board. We make publicity (start posting, sending mails and so on). And wtih the "publicity" we post a link to the chat room (if it's web based it's better, not everybody has yahoo messenger installed).
Publicity has to be visible, on vigil time there are going to be lots of melons looking for info about shannon, most of them find the boards or bm sites, if they show an ad with the chat room dates, we'll have tons of melons. Last year I counted around 35 melons at the same time in the chat room. I ended up with about 50 melons in my yahoo list.
And, oh well, as you can see... I'm not going this year (again! ).

I'm ok with it... but we still have to check on the other boards, not like ask if someone wants to organize it with us, but more like check if someone is organizing anything, so we don't have 2 separate chats or something.
We should have a "Shannon's bday greetings" thread on the first page too, so ppl can leave a msg in case they don't feel like going to the chatroom, that happens a lot too...
Oh and put the board on google... have you done that already?

I just checked, we are in google, we're just nowhere near the top, lol... It's cuz it's a board, not a website.
Mark's site it's the one that's more likely to get lots of hits... can someone that doesn't think that he's an asshole write him an email to see if he can put a link to this board for vigil time (unless he wants to open his) or if he's willing to put a link to the chat room?
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
