  • Any chance a forum for just general chat and socialising could be created.

  • That was already done, you'll find the forums here.   Once you've taken a look at them, it ought to be clear why they were recently closed.  This is not likely to be repeated.

  • I think that is quite clear.

    Hmm, i wonder if making a point requirement to post there would help. That would let the frequent users of these forums communication, which is perhaps that Derek wanted.

  • Hi,

    Thanks nobugz, I see your point.

    Brian, yeah thats what I was thinking. Frequent users just doing a bit of socialising without needing to keep it technical. Some folks do post about non-technical things and some other folks moan a bit for going off topic.

    You know what would happen though someone would ruin it. Think it's worth doing it thrugh email or chat instead.

  • Well, once we're speculating.

    Why not make it cost 5 points to post a question. :)

  • Oh my, if that is what you think it looks like, seriously, i will remove it. Please let me know.

    Here's a better image of it. Is it obvious now? :)




    I also updated my avatar to use the better image. Please let me know what you think.

  • Derek,
    I have quite a few people on my yahoo from the forums. That is how we are "secretly" talking to one another. And I am a member of the SQL Server forum yahoo group.

    Lots of ways we users can collaborate.

  • Hey John, it's been a while. Good to see you man. Would be good to get to know folk and have a place where chat isn't specific to programming all the time, just not ALL the time. It's not a good time to be chatting right now as I'm rarely on my home machine these days. Think there is a good case for more sociable interactions between folk on the forums.

    Thought you'd like to see this....
