Chatroom-Your Thoughts Please!
As you may have noticed, we've just implemented a much-requested chatroom. It is quite simple and has few fancy features, but for the moment we just want it to work!
Anyway, have at it, and post your thoughts, feature requests, effusive thanks to the tech team, etc., right here. Thanks!
the stuff that you got so incensed about was happening more often on the 'old site' which is why I believe the DN tried (and maybe overboard) to rein in questionable (and on the oldsite often abusive, sexually offensive, and downright wrong) posting.
One individual created significant chaos on the 'old site' and we were pretty ineffective at managing him and they way he treated others (with the possible exception of a sheriff "Jack Black's A_ _ Crack"). Anyway, I say several posters at that time go away for sometime due to such out-of-bounds behavior.
It you need to go away, so be it. If this is a good place for us to talk and share (albeit with that annoying 'shove out' "when push comes to shove"), then let yourself cool and recognize that this place isn't perfect, but it is a better spot that you had before. If you gotta go, more power to you. Think about comming back and we will be as happy to see you as we were 'back in the day" and reunited with familar & friendly faces at the shows.
I just want to reach out and tell you that, man, we can't always control others but we can hope that the vibe is more powerful than those that are chipping away at it. And "the wheel is turning and you can't slow it down, can't go back and you can't stand still, ...everytime that wheel turn round, bound to cover just a little more ground. BOUND TO COVER JUST A LITTLE MORE GROUND!" and then Jerry would soar..... no one can take that away....
Take care, tim
Thank you for your many positive contributions to the site, not the least of which were the suggestion for the poetry thread and your postings there. It would be a shame to see a valuable and contributing member of the community drift away. I appreciate your presence here, and hope that you'll reconsider.
Peace and my best wishes to you as well, from one stu to another.
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
sometimes , yes my anger and frustration get the best of me , i take medication for that , just seeing people solicit for sex here , well as you can tell it threw ne over the edge ,so my apologies for that outburst. however my wife is a former AOL empoyee, we both know that it is not that dificult to take care of some issusses, maybe your software needs to have key words, like if someone types the word cum,sex, or any other sexually explicit words on their profile then the profile will be automaticlly deleted. thats how aol, yahoo , and sure many others operate. sorry for the outburst . the staff here is haveing a hard time , maybe they need some people with more comp. experience. there has got to be a better way, terms of service , has anyone read terms of service for other web sites. like craigslist.org ? they are based out of the bay area go read their terms of service, maybe someone from craigslist needs a job, and craigslist is also free so it can`t be that dificult to take care of such issusses.. well i`ll leave this brokendown palace for a wile , maybe i`ll go plant a weeping willow.. too all the kind people i have gotton to know , i will miss you all. for those who will like to keep in touch with me please pm me and i will gladly give you my regular e-mail address. i will stick around for the next day or so , after that i will no longer use this service.
thank you everyone for the good times .. peace and my best wishes to all..
i browsed the pages a little and i can only say that stuman is a very humble,polite and nice human being.getting him into cookin like that something must be real weird,if not to say completely wrong.and the CHAT IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY.you have your tech departement,these guys get paid so they should be able to handle such a thing.if not ,maybe another kind of job would be more appropriate.believe me mary that if this goes on like it does,there will be more people getting angry,and thats not good for all of us.once again i ask you please:why do we have to be policed?:-)(-:
Well at least the fact that people are getting frustrated shows that the chatroom is a popular innovation!!
Everyone knows about the problem, I believe that people are trying to fix it. Its frustrating that it takes so long, but I imagine that resources are not unlimited for servicing this place (which is provided f.o.c., with no ads and such). We really should not take it personally or take it out personally on others; do you really think there was a conscious decision to mess us around on this?
Most of us have at one time or another said we will stay away from the CR because of this problem, but most of keep going back there.....that's our choice and we should know what to expect by now!
Folks I have had such fun chatting with you all lately and a lot of folks have also been helping eachother out during hard times.. lets try and keep that friendly, funny, caring vibe going however we can.
and what have I been missing..no one's invited me for sex!!!
i completely understand stuman freaking out.first you get kicked,not 2 times like u once jokingly said,but 60 to a 100 times and even more if its bad.than the chat breaks down completely like yesterday(which f...d up some important downloads,because i had to shut down the comp.to get it working again!!!)and if you are lucky you get some sex-advertising on top.GOOD GRIEF,what that a tweak yesterday?or some hacker,or a frustrated DH who used his knowledge to kick ass electronically.for me the DN is a social window to people i can dig,because i live in a little ex-communist village where i am a stranger just because i travelled around so the chat is really my window to the world.just tell me one thing mary,please:why we as people of legal age need to be policed in such a humiliating manner?thanks,and have a nice weekend:-)(-: P.S.using the chat,i often see the words "google analytics"blinking on my screen.is this the same google analytics which polices the webpages so willingly for the chinese goverment??????
Let's all be nice, after all it is only a chat room. I don't think there is a need for the verbal or written attacks. Peace everyone and have some patience
we need the Deadbusters to come in and get rid of all the ghots and gobblins that plauge the chatroom.
ladymitch has gone the way of Nelly2Sweet.
Stuman, the fact of the matter is that anyone in the whole world with an email address can sign up for an account here. That is the nature of the Internet. With sex-n-porn spammers like ladymitch, or other bad actors, all we can do is wait for them to speak up inappropriately and deal with it. Which I just did.
As to your general insults and abuse to the people who make this system possible and on the whole keep it running pretty darn well, I'm not going there.
could you please explain what you're talking about? Thank you.
