Stop chit chatting
« on: December 09, 2015, 12:34:10 am »
Sorry for being anal about this but the quality of this forum is deteriorating. Forums are meant for idea exchange and discussion. Maybe baring this section.

But almost every thread i see, at least in the love section is filled with a group trying to chalk up post counts/reps by doing their chatting. These guys just veer off the main discussion and go on and on with chat posts that don't contribute at all and worse, take up server space. I give up even trying to read the relevant post exchanges.

Come on la. You can socialize at meetups, and perhaps this chit chat forum section, all I ask is that you show some respect to the respective TS and stay on topic.

In short, these people are doing their whatsapp group chat on the forums. Constructive posts here please.

The world has become better maybe. Sharp decline in breakup rate, cheaters find it less appealing to change taste, MILs has woken up and treat people like a human.

TBH TS, no girls want to date me so I come here to fish and chit chat lorrrrrr. I also follow the flow of the thread, side tracking also side track together mah...must blame those edmw thread lah.

my impression of a forum: where bored people enjoy talking nonsense with bored people. to me, a forum is a place to enjoy conversation with other people from all walks of life. if there's anything serious worth discussing, we would be talking about it here too. of coz we will need unker @beaverjuice to open the thread first. :p

some chit chat will happen la. and it depend on the mods how they wan to stick to the rules of no siding tracking. and is there any serious topic here or contributor that can make us do serious talk? the ans is NO.

and it take times to build up a forum it is not a easy thing

We definitely don't need some discipline master banning people here. It won't do the forum any good. There isn't any racism, hatred inciting post that I've come across (yet).

If I was searching for a topic and then I get into a thread and there is one page of "irrelevant" posts, would u not consider yourself to be selfish that
1) you are chucking up server space with chat posts
2) someone has to go through your irrelevant conversation

Just food for thought.
Anyway, the community defines the forum, I guess the owners would definitely love traffic and activity but as a user (maybe too anal) I'd leave.

would you support a chatbox feature then? so that all the inane chatter will be diverted there? ???

this has been mooted before by many petals .....

some out of topic chat will bound to happen la, like I say if it get to out of hand. mods can come out to give warning. no need to do banning unless they break forum rules,

and this forum still so news. it will take some time for it to build up. if you wan this forum to be gd. provide some useful thread.

I think gotta take time before all those chitchatting inside the threads will stop.
We are still lacking of people coming in here. Somehow or rather, we gotta keep some activity going on. Of course, we seems to sidetrack a lot but one of the main contributing factors is that we dun have enough ppl here to give their comments. Most of the time, the thread will auto die off after 1 or 2 pages.
Like i said before, most of us here, are not from the strawberry generation.
Strawberry generation is so different from most of us here. Anything that they are unhappy, they rant it on their facebook, instagram, twitter, blog, dayre etc. They dun even need to come into forum..

I'm not from strawberry gen . Most of the time I do stick to the topic.
But a bit of chit chat is inevitable I guess ...  I guess we should open a thread purely for chit chat ??

yeah ... I really dunno how to relate to strawberry generation too .....

I think I belong to the coconut generation .... hard on the outside and inside sometimes empty or full of water .... :(

sometimes I struggle to keep the threads going because I only know how to post salacious comments or innuendos ..... my IQ not very high one ...... gommenasai .... gommenasai  .... :(

my one also 0.6 .... so cannot give good advise on sex also .....  :'(
