SO is really trying to compromise and keep the chat for everyone, safely.

I say get rid of it, it's too much trouble, if people are going to take advantage of the trust...




Perhaps it should cost points, big one time fee, like RATS "was". That would keep anyone under a certain "cap", out of the chat. Limiting it to those who have earned the privilage.

Indeed ADVISOR, there is no reason why this already free website with it's many numerous features should provide anything which proves cause for concern for those who run it.

I am sure that there are many other ATS members who would agree with me and happily admit that the effort being made to maintain this additional feature is just another example of the dedication and goodwill of all those concerned.

I have already made my feelings known about the good fortune I had last year to stumble upon ATS and the fantastically diverse members who make it what it is, and as I sit and watch it evolve I stand ever more impressed.

I take this time, and I'm sure I speak for many here, to thank each and every member of staff for the time and effort so generously given to make ATS what it is.

Optimus, unless you can and are willing to prove it in a court of law I would ask you refrain from labelling you and I as 'likeminded' in public. I believe this is called slander!

Having reviewed the thraed further. (okay, a bit further) I can see why it has been shut down. With good reason too but i still hope it returns.

It was very interesting and also helped to discuss threads further and way more indepthly debate a thread. On many occasions it could help to ease tentions between two less friendly members, by talking to them in real time about not just what he/she believes about a certain subject, thread or whatever.

lol D9.......

I must openly say that I have NEVER recieved a private message in the chatroom of an inappropriate manner. The chatters I have encountered in the ATS room widely vary in age, and some are grumpier than others. I have felt respected in the room and treated in a dignified manner. Most, if not ALL people ask first if they can ask a private question. I am glad I never has to experiance an uncomfortable IM. ATS does a great job keeping this a site safe for the majority, and if chat goes away, I will not be the ONLY sad person on the boards.......right cpr? (great job on this thread man!)

I say take away the IM capability.........folks can use the u2u service for a secure line and, since it can be saved and forwarded.......perpetrators of smut like comments can be easily pinpointed, and are less likely to comunicate in that manner. I guess the IM capability via the chat function is just to big a temptation for the darker side of humanity

You should read my announcement again because it's clear you didn't understand it the first time.

Yo guys I got banned from chat more than a week ago and I didn't whine and complain.

Be responsible for your actions. You are banned if it comes back or maybe not I don't know. But don't make the people who run this site feel bad or they won't want to do anything for you or anyone else

Chill.

When you are wrong, face up to the fact you were wrong and apologize.

If you don't think you were wrong, go read the T&C again - you agreed to it.

It has been CLEARLY stated this is NOT a moderators decision.....it is the decision of the OWNERS of the site. It is GOOD FORM to attempt to lock out and protect inocent members from the pervasive sexual deviants abounding on the internet. Bitching out the mods will NOT help one iota in bringing back the chat funtion, that just prooves to the powers that be, that it is more trouble than it is worth.......I would watch your mouth if I were you. Be gratefull for what we have here.

CPR, dont say things like that, the media might just do that, and thats the last thing we need.


Hey it might get more people to the site!

It's cool to joke but you know it would bring the wrong people and put a bad name out there for the site.....

Shouldn't we all chill so chat can come back. And you should listen to me, even if chat comes back I'll still be banned. It's just the best way. People chill out.
