Prospectors Lounge?

  

26 members have voted

  1. 1. Should we try a lounge forum?



Recommended Posts

Thinking a Prospectors lounge for talking about stuff like cars, other hobbies, family, etc. would be nice and I have gotten requests for such a section. If it is added there will be as elsewhere on the forums NO POLITICS and NO RELIGION discussed to avoid the flame wars that always erupt when these subjects are discussed. I will moderate this area and simply will delete threads that get insulting or otherwise out of hand without warning or explanation.

Just think it will lighten things up to have a place to just talk about other things as well and help our community get to know each other better.

I will have a look at it... Have tried chat before and actually have that option with the board, but it didn't really fly. It has been years and nany of the previous issues are likely now fixed so I'll rethink this.

Bill one thing I would like to see is a computer sub-forum with

one of our own computer guru's running it...I have an idea that

many members have computer problems that could be fixed with a

little click x click help... :hmmmmm:

When it comes to computers I know how to turn mine on and off...

know the difference between right click and left click and that's

just about it....maybe I'm the only one computer

challenged!!! :blink:

If someone was interested in hosting a section for computer questions I would consider it. I too am not as PC savvy as one would think :arrowheadsmiley:

Oh also it appears the Lounge is wanted so we will give it a go....

I've been meaning to welcome you back, but I think it's not necessary. Anytime you're online is a bonus. I've never left, just haven't been putting input in, been trying to cut back. I've been given alot of responsibility on alot of forums as a moderator, plus I'm trying to keep my own forum going. But I always drop in each day to view with my morning coffee.

Now come on Don, you're a computer guru .. you're just trying to be modest :inocent:

Yup I know nut I am here much more now and will deal with the Lounge, but agree on the chat part it would be too hard to moderate. Sometimes it amazes me how things can get so nasty and stupid at an mainly adult forum. But one must admit you learn some about a person when the open up like that.

If things get out of hand we will again go back to just subject related forums.

I know moderation can be a problem on chats because they are real time. As I am a moderator on a chat which involves many that have psychological problems (dealing with child abuse & DID/MPD/trauma), I get around that by mostly banning or some deleting. Hopefully a site like this wouldn't have the degree of mental problems. To have options that are not ever used is like not having that method of correction. Until they know there are repercussions to actions I don't believe behavior modification is possible.

One thing good about chats is that they build stronger communities when everybody is on the same goal. Another is they auto delete over a period of time.

P.S. Was just talking with the mrs's this morning about our arguements and how the make our relationship real as long as there is full acceptance between us. I would expect any strong relationship to have arguements.

Just my opinions.
