    What goes here

    Threads that go here are threads like cliques where you say "Hi", "goodbye", and chat about random things in one thread.

    What goes here may change - I'm looking for your input

    Why?

    This forum was created so that cliques wouldn't clutter the main Member Lounge forum.

    Do posts here count?

    NO. Posts here to NOT add to your post count.

    Are cliques exclusive?
    NO. Any and all members must be allowed to join any and all cliques.


    Feel free to post you comments, etc. here. I am really looking for your input. If this forum dosen't work out, topics may be moved back to the main Member Lounge forum.

    Now that this forum has been created, I don't like it as much - should I just move threads back to the member lounge or do you like it better this way

    Please respond!

    Well, when you browse the main member lounge you have to scroll down alot of the main topics.

    So I'm still undecided - but it will stay for now.

    i think it's a great idea, but i think that these posts should NOT count in members' post counts. just a thought.

    I was thinking that too but a lot of members are against that... it is still very an option but I at least wanted to start the Random forum while still keeping the post count issue up in the air.

    Hmm...why don't you have a poll asking everybody what they think (or maybe two...one for the random forum and one for the whole post count thing) and post it up on the main page or something?

    Good idea. It may become the poll - but the poll is going to change to Phase One Reaction tonight.

    i think it's a good idea, and i don't think posts should count here cuz most of the time they're really short, like a few word answer or saying hi and bye

    I think this is good to have a random thread.. for the stuff but keep the post counts.. you should because some users on here all they do is stay in the Random thread.. and stuff so they wont like get any posts even if they are a good contributer to the threads, so I say you should keep them!

    I think what we have now is good, the way it's organized. I also think that the post counts should be kept. I always try and make my post at least a sentence long so it matters. That's what I think about it.

    I totally agree as well. I think that it will make threads easier to find and the posts should count.
