    I went into the chat room to lurk a bit. I've maybe gone in a handful of times since I've joined. So I'm looking at all the names and I only see one or two familiar ones. Then all of the sudden someone opens a private chat box and writes "hi"...(someone who's member name I did not recognize) I did not even know that this was an option there. I just closed it and left the chat. Sorry whoever you were, I did not mean to be rude...and HI. :wave2:

    I found out who it was an apologized to him in chat. It's a good thing that he saw what I wrote opened up a private chat window again. I think it was Kingawsome...He said he never posts here.

    I totally sympathize, mem. I've done this about 3 or 4 times. The chat room is scary!!

    It's not such a scary place. People in the chat room are normally very friendly. There are on occasion some flare-ups, but what the hell?

    If you act like an ass you'll generally hear about it in real time. Sometimes it's boring but you can usually get things going if you say something funny or ask a stupid question.

    If you get an unwanted IM, just say you are busy and they'll leave you alone. There is also an ignore feature for use on trolls.

    All I know is that I'm in good with the Princess so I do not fear what will happen. So long as I am within her realm, no evil can befall me. :saeek:

    Oh come on now we're usually a friendly bunch in there. It's not TOOO scary. With the latest upgrade you can ignore ALL private messages. so you wont' get any popup boxes that say "HI".

    Yes, it's useful to be in The Princess's court. :biggrin1: I've applied to be her Minister of Internal Affairs.

    Some people in chat don't post in the forum, don't fill out their profile and don't chat in the main chat room; they just wait and try to talk to people in private chats. I usually ignore these ones.

    But there are others that chat a bit in the main chat room, but don't really post in the forum. At least if you see them chatting in the main chat, then it's not so awkward if they privately chat with you.

    You can always just close the private window and say that you are only chatting in the main chat room.

    I never reply to half the people who message me.. what's the point? Most of them are just in it to get off. I esp never reply to ones that say... hot body, wanna cam?

    LOL, he asked me how old I was and I just told him that I was just visiting the chat room to lurk.

    How do you know his age? If he registers as 14 wouldn't the system toss him out?
