You know there's a problem when chatmins outnumber regular users.
It's been some time since I've had options in the chatrooms, /chatswapping around to see which room had a discussion worth jumping into. As of lately, the chatrooms have been populated by the same few people. Thing is, I don't find them all that amusing most of the time. No offense.
Why is this? Probably because everyone is cooped up in their inbox/outbox, or spamming the gazillions of groups that are available. How about you take it to the chatrooms? Yeah, you're at a higher risk of being banned, but that's when you can go back to mailing/spamming groups, right? Take chances.
"But I'm messaging, like, 5 other
people." One of the main excuses I receive when trying to get someone mailing me to jump into a chatroom.
Here's another idea, invite them to chat too Right, right?
I'm making sense here aren't I?
What are you discussing in mail that can't be taken to a chatroom?
General chats? We got that.
Role playing chats? Oh snap, we got that too.
Your friend only speaks French, so he won't really fit in with all the English speakers. Well, I guess you got me--- Wait no, we got that as well
Cybering? Yeah, you can keep that in the messages.
Brewing up a mean Drama Gumbo? Yeah, you can keep that private.
Something a bit to personal that you can only express to a really close friend? Go ahead, keep mailing.
I'm not saying that you shouldn't have general discussions through mail, but damn, have you seen the chatrooms lately? They should be renamed Tumbleweeds, Crickets, Awkward Silence, & Brb--- NOT. But I don't want that to happen.
Yeah, the Grammar Nazis can get annoying; yeah, you'll run into some instigators and know-it-alls; yes, beware of trolls and all that good stuff. Just don't let them keep you from easily chatting with friends, rather than lingering on the Home Page, waiting for a reply in mail.
You can always use /block, /chatswap is also another option. and if they continue to pester you, you should just be flattered because they're obviously crushing
So yeah, that's about it. I challenge you all to revive the chatrooms.
Will you accept?
Or fail like a big poopy head?
