Closing Paltalk Rooms
It seems God is giving all
indications that we have to move on from using
Paltalk. Social networking is
becoming more useful and a better outlet for Mission
outreach. So we are shifting our focus from using
Paltalk to spread the Word, to social networking and
social media (which includes social networking, as
well as sites such as YouTube, FourSquare, etc.).
We encourage everyone to also shift
their focus to social media, participate in all available
networking outlets, and help each other to become
in using them.
Tahirah will be the central point
(leader) in this regard, and you can coordinate with her to
make this work for everyone so we can use this
wonderful outlet the most efficiently for God's Work.
We can see that God may also
be pushing us in this direction because the Paltalk service
seems to be going downhill.
Their user population seems to be declining, their ads
are becoming worse and more intrusive, their servers are
often down, their customer service is almost
nonexistent, etc. Therefore, we feel the time and
energy we are putting into keeping up 4 rooms is being
wasted, and would give more fruit if it was spent on
social media. We
decided that we still need one room to broadcast
services and live events, but the others are not worth
Therefore, we have
decided to close 3 out of the 4 rooms we currently
have running 24/7. Only our main room, "All
Religions Unified...", will remain open. We will
also move all activities and recordings to this room.
Therefore, instead of having a room playing only
meditation classes, a room playing only chants, etc., we
will have one room playing a random selection of
readings, Satsangs (Discourses) by Maitreya, meditation classes,
chants, etc. All live events, such as
services, meditation classes, etc., will be held in
this room as well.
As a side effect of this move, we
are also removing all low-quality recordings from the
playback list. The recordings played in the new
room will all be high quality, clear, and easily
understood and listened to.
The closing of the rooms and all
other necessary changes will happen on October
For full details on what will be
broadcast in the new room, please check our
conference room page and
activities page after the move.
