Morning all, Slightly new twist to the ongoing discussion, there are times when the main chatroom veers away from the "help & advise" service it offers, personal opinion it makes it interesting and adds a level of humanity and humour to the process however I appeciate that as times when its busy new members can get lost at the speed things move at.

 

One issue I see is that when you log onto chat the first room you land at is Help & Advise and it is very easy to settle in for a chat as it were, so, would it be possible before you get to the room you are presented with a menu requesting where you want to go either "Help & Advice" or Off Topic.

 

This I hope would make people more aware of what to expect and make a choice of what they should be chatting about.

 

(Think it might be safe to hide for a bit now)

 

Cheers

Any advise offered is my own opinion, and if in doubt, always seek clarification.

That sounds like a great idea. As a regular Chatter, I have been guilty at times of getting into off topic chat in the main room so an option before entering would be great.

 

I also have built friendships with people in the help & advice room and I sometimes pop back in if one of them enters, just to say hi really but then end up getting caught up in a conversation.

 

I suppose the thing to remember really is the little pm boxes. They take the chat away from the main thread of conversation and can be used across rooms.

 

I agree with BB though that it does make for a friendlier atmosphere if there is a bit of banter going on and that is good for settiling newbies in so to stop it completely would probably be detrimental to the cause.

 

Round of applause to BB for that suggestion.

I think its a great idea to have an option before entering the room, I also thought about flashing up the basic rules for use but honestly doubt they'd be read. I'm not sure is flashchat is able to offer an option before entering, but there are other software programs around which could be used.

 

I don't think its a huge problem to be honest most of the regulars do go off topic if things get carried away, and the majority just need a little nudge to remind them to pop downstairs.

It isn't actually doable, however, what about having two chat rooms - instead of rooms inside one.

 

One for off-topic, and one for help and advice.

Chloes chat room lament....

 

The chat room is gone oh no it is true

 

Now early nights and nothing to do!

 

A life without chat one not the same

 

For I lived in there... yes CJ is my name!

 

 

Press the button, off in I went to see

 

Who was on there .. lots not just me!

 

Help and advice oh and off topic to

 

Flit between rooms oh so much to do!

 

 

Bank charges the topic yes you can stay

 

If you are here for a gossip off topic the way!

 

No you can’t swear, or the filter will bite

 

Try to bypass it and you will be sent off for the night!

 

 

Hours and hours of virtual cups of coffee and tea

 

4am mornings with many, it became my reality!

 

Of questions and answers and friends I did make,

 

If you give it back we will be good for goodness sake!

 

 

Everyone misses it I suffer withdrawals each day,

 

Come on Dave and Bankfodder just come in and say..

 

Chat will be back now and have lessons been learnt?

 

Do Not listen to gossip or fingers will get burnt!

Well said and nicely done too CJ. Not that we expect anything less!!

 

I am sure admin are working hard on restoring the room, and some fantastic suggestins have cone from here as we knew it would.

 

The sinbin room would be fantastic! Maybe some members who go off topic would be gently reminded if they were placed in sinbin room for 5 mins...anymore than twice in 1 session gets you locked out of the site!! If this happens I best be on good behaviour as i know as well as next person how easy it is to do ;)

 

Hope to chat soon xxxx
