Oops. Looks like I might have to work a bit harder at being pompous and up myself them. The next person who suggests I have lightened up will be banned!

The reason the chat room doesn't really work - is that it relies on everyone being online constantly all at the same time - This in my opinion is a level of "geekiness" beyond your average boat owner
I'm inclined to agree. It's something that has been requested a few times, and been tried on two separate occasions, but has never been very successful.

Open a new forum heading in the "Rib Talk" category called "Idle Chat" or as on my forum "Random Ramblings" or something similar and promote this as a place for everyone to just chat and communicate and have fun. This section can then be set to auto prune threads that have not had a reply for say, a month, and everyone will be happy.
This is a possibility, and "time expiring" the threads could be a good way to make it work.

Would you see this section having any rules, or a genuine free for all?

I'm not suggesting anything goes or it could turn into a hateful slagging match

But a greatly relaxed set of posting guidelines where people can feel free to post stuff that has no right to be preserved along with the rest of the ribnet content. Common decency should still be encouraged but most importantly so should fun.

I think if you give it a go - it will become a very popular thing - people will be able to chat away about any old rubbish (keeping them online and in the forum). And they are only a click away being able to ask and answer serious RIB related questions.

If anything it should improve the content of the rest of the site - as long as people are encouraged and guided to know what belongs in the permanently stored forums and what should be in the non permanent forums.

Would you see it replacing or supplementing the current "Other stuff" section?

John,

Is there a way that if you do this - that the "babble, nonsense, abuse, humour" pages won't show up if you clikc new posts? I am sure that many of your users - like me click "new posts" each day and probably would prefer not to have the nonsense appear?

Neil

I suppose that would depend on how you define 'Nonsense'
I've read quite a number of 'serious' posts on here which are absolute bollix.

OK, I'l try again with that question . . .

If we had a "Not quite a chat room" section, would we still need the "Other stuff" section in its current form?
