Guys you don't need to have a camera in order to participate. I won't be using one.


This!

I hope people don't shy away from this because of a webcam. Put some tape on it and 100% no one will see you.

I will be. For me the whole point is to hang out with people with the same problem so you don't have to worry about it plus you can't see scarring through your cam unless you are sitting in daylight or something. 

However! It is totally up to you, but you can blur it or put some tape on it if you'd like!! Do whatever you need to! Just happy if people show up!

Ugh. Sorry guys, I couldn't join. I wanted to use my phone but apparently Windows Phone and Google hangouts aren't exactly best friends. I tried working things out for about 30 minutes, but I gave up, annoyed. My PC îs unfortunately not an option atm... So maybe next time :(. I feel bad. I really wanted to be there.

This sounds terrific! I'm incredibly shy in person yet oddly enough more outgoing over the Internet. ^_^ If you're continuing this, is there another date you had in mind? Hope I'm not too late.

This is a great idea, wish this came up when I used to frequent these boards. It's easy to isolate yourself when dealing with scarring. You should have an actual meetup in london, I would come to that.

Hello! I recently got acne for the first time (at 22) and I am on isotretinoin (day 66 today) and I think I am starting to scar a little. Will this Skype group chat be a regular thing? I feel like I need to be able to talk to someone. In a group, or one-to-one. Day dreaming of how I used to be is the hardest thing in the world for me and I need to stop it.

Hey guys, happy that more want to join! I'm in Italy again but I get back in 10 days... so how about we set something up for real this time the 17th? Please let me know by message if you can make it otherwise I won't set anything up...

I think there is a max of 10 but I thought 5 in each group might be nice as a start. But, I need to know how many we are first so let me know if you can make it and what time is good for you (daytime GMT+1 best!!)

Would anyone be happy to try Skype chats or even just chatting using a messenger ( using just messages on Skype, is one example ) to talk about certain things? I am happy to do Skype video calls at some point but I am super anxious and would feel more comfortable if I could get to know people a little better first.

Hi sorry for not participate on the topic but I really like the idea of a Skype or google handout. Me too I am in the same situation like most of the people on this forum. Still struggling with multiple mix scars and very bad hypo discoloration around the cheeks area.
