You thought the Dub was bad? Let's talk about Chat

Postby Woosh » Fri Sep 17, 2010 9:01 pm

What can we do to create a more vibrant and engaging chat community for people who have an aptitude for the chatting arts? It's easy to complain and say something sucks, which is something a faggot like Idi would do, but it takesa go-getter to fix the problem. I want to get together with the crew and work on this, if the desire is there.

Problems:
1. Blast chat is a bitch. I hate to complain, because it's a free utility I get to use, but it would be like somebody offering me free chips that were fucking stale. I get booted out of chat EVERY TIME. and can almost never log back in.

2. I suspect the second problem is due to the first, but the general unreliability of chat has led many people to forsake it, or at least I did and i heard a few other people did too. We rarely have synchronization. Chat can be good spur-of-the moment, in fact, some of the best are, but sometimes it would be good to have it planned, almost like a real, irl event. we could even center chats around interactive things like watching something in real time together or some other gay shit.

3. Knuckman deserves more respect. This can't be avoided anymore.


There are probably other problems. Myabe someone knows the big boss of chat at blast who can have some insight to help us with his/her incredibly kind and valluable resource. Maybe we need to finally get a Sludge chat, or find out what steps would be necessary. There are free options, but would it be worth it to put a bit of cash in the pot for a nice sludge chat? Let's have a discourse.

Try updating your flash player. That was usually the reason people would get booted.

For all its flaws, I kinda like Chat the way it is. I've been trying to make the most of the time I have in there when I feel compelled to enter, knowing I could be booted at any second. I really wouldn't complain about a better venue, but I'm not all "better must come" about it.

I think sometimes I care too much; but only because I want to be able to say I helped make something better. I think it's a result of constantly hearing people pine for the old days, and being nostalgic every day. why wouldn't someone like that want something to look forward to, you know.

You're probably right, I agree with you in my heart, but there is that part of me that can visualize improvements. If nothing else changes, the fear of being kicked out at any second and not being able to get back has to be corrected. I do believe that is a reasonable complaint. although, like i said, i'm complaining about a free service; a privilege. so i kinda feel like a shithead.

Yeah, well everything you're saying is completely legitimate. There are probably good ideas that can come of this, but fuck... I need to go to bed.

I hear you man, me too. This is probably the most I've posted in months in the past two hours, though. I've been unusually productive posting tonight. If I did this everyday, only then would I understand what it meant to be Iggy.

:lol:

I'll definitely think about the chat thing, though. I do think there are ways the experience could be improved in a way that'd make me want to experience it more. You know?

Blast chat has never kicked me out. I've had it freeze up temporarily but it always comes back after giving it a few seconds.

You never told ME that. I guess you just laughed at me when I'd get booted!

Same here - same time every fucking night. And like Gary Busey's sobriety, my Flash is GOOD.

Shit makes me not want to start a conversation with Woosh because I know we're just going to get interrupted by The_Boot and he'll never come back.

Shit sucks.

We need a good chat, here on Sludge. I will be the moderator.

I don't see it happening - last time we had one, there was way too much drama among the moderators and people were calling Stevie at home about it, so he yanked it.

Cannot blame him if people were calling him at home about a fucking chatroom. That would get old, and fast.

Hypothetically, we could have a selective chatroom, couldn't we? I mean, is there any way to keep disruptive or unwanted aspects out? There has to be some way, something we could do.
And we don't have to have an official Metal Sludge chatroom, just because people who post at Sludge would be chatting there. I only posted at Blast once or twice-probably only once. I don't want the fact that Metal Sludge, as a business entity or whatever, isn't interested in maintaining one, in fact, it's totally understandable. We could call the chatroom "The Rainbow Cheeseburger Discussion Zone" for all I care, as long as there was somewhere available for us to chill.
How does one go about acquiring a chatroom, how much does it cost/ what would have to be done? I would be willing to contribute financially, if someone knew what had to be done/or how to go about it (I don't really have a clue where to begin). I mean, if anyone can brainstorm or has any ideas/suggestions, I'm all ears.

Look, the only way we'd ever have a successful, ongoing chatroom is if it were here on Sludge. Why don't you take up a collection like you did to ban itwalks? I'm sure Stevie needs shoes too.

I don't want sara in moderation, but sara as a moderator doesn't sound too bad.
