A brand new feature has been launched on BelowTopSecret.com... the "Mutter Box."
We closed-down a few threads that became "overly chatty" a few weeks ago, but that doesn't mean we haven't recognized the need or desire for a
significant segment of our members to engage in a long-running chat-like conversation... we just prefer that it not happen in threads.
The new Mutter Box is a custom designed running-chat solution, specific to the BelowTopSecret.com website. It appears in the right-side column of
every thread, is open to all members (for now), but is visible only to members, not guests.
Mutters are short comments of 222 characters or less.
Mutters may contain BBcode for links, but nothing else (for now).
Mutters fall under all normal Terms & Conditions.
Since muttering is a real-time live posting, just like chat, if we're forced to remove your mutter you'll be immediately post-banned. Then you need
to work out reinstating your member status with the staff member how removed your mutter.
This is in "beta" phase right now, and we'll add several improvements over time. Including some flashier new design, and a way to review more than
100 of the most-recent mutters.
