As many of you are aware, the above issue has come to the point where numerous users have brought to out attention that they are no longer enjoying themselves in this forum becuase of the "piontless chit chat" and "hi-jcking threads"

We would not like to see people leaving this forum for any "silly" reason what-so-ever...

We would like too see people to continue to have fun....

SO what we propose is that people could start useing a GAB thread for all chit chat...

Please try to stay on-topic (of the thread topic).... if you feel the need to post something not related to the topic at hand..... then either start a new thread or use the GAB thread.

I dont have a problem with the chit chat.... as long as it is clean and within the "GAB thread"...

Using the PM system..... well I use it.... when I'm directly a comment a ONE person.... Using the PM system for chit chat amoungst a small group is very difficult.

Hi-jacking threads is a big problem... to which we'd like to see put an end to..... BUT it's up to you guys to help here....

Banning people for continuing to hijack threads is a last resort...

SO................

1. Please try to stay on Topic

2. Use the GAB thread for chit chat

3. Use the PM system when you want to say something "personal" to one person (at a time)...


SO thats my point of view.......

Now don't take this thread in the same direction as the other. US mods are going to start cracking down hard on this nonesense.

NO MORE HI-JACKING. A quick hello to one another might, and I stress might, be acceptable but all these one sided conversations need to be kept in PM's.

If the mods can do it so can everyone else.

Also Please stop swearing. Substituting letters with characters is still NOT acceptable, and there are a few regulars here that do that far too much.

ENOUGH. No more grandstanding either, any more Grandstanding threads will be deleted, without warning.

That is what the gab threads are for. No need to chat in other's threads, just go to the gab thread.
