Group chat break (15/04-22/04)
April is upon us, which means we're due our next chat break week. There will be no group chats on the week of the 15th April, from Monday-Sunday. The usual group chat schedule will return on the Monday 22nd.
What is a 'group chat break'?
Roughly three times a year, we have a week (or two) where we take a break from running group chat sessions. We use these periods as a chance to gather up the feedback we've received from you all, reflect on how things are going on the community, and look at anything we might want to work on. Sometimes, we also have opportunities to get involved with something a little different, like a project.
How often do we have them?
Typically, these happen once in January, April, and August.
What will we be doing for this one?
As well as the usual reflection on how things are going more generally, there will be a chance to give your feedback on something we're developing for a project (unrelated to the community). More on that to come...
Will there be a quiz?
Yep! We'll be holding our usual Easter quiz, on Tuesday 16th, from 7-8pm. We'll post a separate announcement for this, where we'll let you know what prizes are on offer and the ways you can get involved.
I still need support. Where can I go?
If you'd like some quick, live support while chat isn't running, feel free to head over to our one-to-one helpline. You can get in touch in three ways - phone, webchat and email. Call for free on 0808 808 4994.
If you're at breaking point, our Crisis Messenger is also open as usual. Text THEMIX to 85258.
These discussion boards will also be open as normal.
Feel free to post below if you have any questions.
Mike & the team
We're @Mike, @Connor, @Emma_, @Italia and @Ed_ - the staff team here at The Mix. We don't provide support via this account, but if you have any questions about the boards or need a hand finding your way around, feel free to drop us a message. Alternatively, you can head over to the Help Desk.
Our response time to PMs might be a little slower than usual, please bear with us (:
