The IRC room that was set up was originally done by a chap who used to post here regularly, then it was set up on IRC, then it got moved to Yahoo, then back to IRC again after Yahoo proved how sucky it was by not letting people join the room. After that, we had a couple of people wading in and causing all sorts of stress, which caused Debaser to set up a room properly with all sorts of goodies to stop it being such a stress for everyone.

It does seem to be extraordinarily difficult for newer people to get access to it these days, which I think is kinda sad - the bad apples have spoiled the experience for everyone (myself included, cos I'd have liked new people to chat with as well.)

You guys can always set up another chat room of some sort, so ya can all talk to each other.

Excellent idea. I'll set up a poll and see what people think. Then if all goes well I can just set up a quakenet room.

I've been wondering this forever, because even though I work at another IPB forum, I never bothered to figure this one out:

I've seen a lot of people with scrolling sigs, both vertically and horizonatally. How do you do that?
Can't believe I never bothrered to ask.... unsure.gif

I used something called a marquee. If you go to Lissaexplains.com, and then go under the section "fun stuff" ( beware - you may go blind from all the bright extreme neon-ish colors in there, so grab some sunglasses... laugh.gif ) there's a whole section on how to do them. She can probably explain them better than I ever could. happy.gif;;

How do you get the "from" stuff under your name? From: far away and the like. I've looked all over my controls, but it's hiding. And what post number do you have to have to customize your member level??

You don't need many posts for a custom member title. I believe the current number is 10 or something around there. As for your other question, I'm not quite sure what you're asking about. If it's location, that's under My Controls > Personal Profile > Edit Personal Profile. It should be about the 8th thing down. Hope that helps!

I thought you couldn't since Mata put in place the Established Members bit. He was trying to let noobs participate in already started threads before making their own.

I think it's somewhere about 20 posts before you can start a thread, but I'm not completely sure.

I'm pretty sure that you can start threads right away in Introductions, Personal Concerns, and Creations, but you have to wait until... maybe 20 or 25 posts before you can start threads anywhere else.

Thanks. It was something concerning the animations, but I squeezed it inside the "suggestions" topic, since it was borderlining the subject.

OH! I forgot all about the Established Members thing. That was pretty recent. I think Ast is right about the forums you can post new topics in, and the basic number when you can start doing that. Glad you got to post your comment.

Tall Kid: You'd be better off asking about this in the Personal Concerns forum.

For now though, I'd say that a good diet and regular exercise is the only healthy way to lose weight.

Yeah i agree, if you start doing a little exercise every day you will notice a big difference eg walking to school and back.
But should you really be losing weight for this girl? Surely if she liked you she would go out with you whatever you looked like. Sounds a tad superficial to me.

1) Is this forum very active at all? Like lets say I make an interesting and thought provoking thread, how many replies would I get in one day?

2)(curious) Are most people on this forum european?

Hi there

Depending on the subject of your thread, it may well get half a dozen replies in one day, significantly more if there are two or more people online who disagree about your topic.

And probably the biggest nationality on here is British, followed by American, and a scattering of others. No regular Aussie posters though, which I've always thought was a bit odd.

However, even if you're looking for more replies than that, please don't deprive us of your interesting and thought-provoking thread. There are some very intelligent and articulate people on here who would love to discuss it, whatever the subject is.

We do have at least one regular Australian member that I can think of. We have a few different nationalities, but the regular posting members are usually from the UK and the US. I'm not sure what the balance is precisely, but, like CM says, I'm fairly sure the UK is more heavily represented.

As for 'active': yes, the forums do have regular posts, and it seems to be picking up again lately. Really it depends on what's happening in the world or our lives. Naturally, if a topic is started in a way that prompts discussion then it will get more responses than one that doesn't. For example: 'my dog is great' wouldn't get much feedback, 'I love my dog, and he always likes drying himself on the sofa after it rains. Does anyone else have a dog with an annoying/cute habit?' would get a lot more.
