I was for it then, but now I just don't see how the same won't happen again.
I lold that is all.

Carry on. I don't think it will be a good idea it will become a spam fest unless caps or restrictions were implemented.

Why, Just post what you want to and don't feel as though you will be criticised.

Back on topic and closing this request;

Daserg,
The question of a chat room has been raised and discussed several times, both amongst the community and internally amongst the staff. I believe the consensus from all of the discussions was that while it would provide a nice feature short term, the long term usage and management of it wouldn't provide much benefit to the site or the community, and may even carry undesired consequences. We appreciate the suggestion, as with any feedback, but will decline this specific suggestion at this point in time.

Thanks all, keep postin!

nobody will be criticised for talking social topics in the social lounge.

the rules are pretty good at defining what can and can't be talked about. social topics are not banned.


if you only want a chant room to talk about social stuff then I'd really recommend checking out the social lounge. (it's probably the most active part of these boards)

topics range from business starting, religon, drugs, smoking, kids, jobs, cars, global warming etc etc etc...

the only thing that's really disallowed is posting "adult material and pictures" and asking for help on bit torrent, also asking for help on how to hack computers.
