Re: CHAT ROOM!

I've been in the chat room Harriet and people are very polite there. They ask openly if anyone minds talking about spoilers and if anyone does (Me for example) they do not.

I would recommend trying it out as it is a fun place.

You can clear the chat window too in case you feel tempted to read posts prior to your arrival.

Hope this helps.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Well, thanks, I don't doubt people are polite and kind there   
Only, I was there once and saw glances of already ongoing spoilers just before I could ask anyone 

So I think a warning along with the chat link would be just fair.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Fair enough, we're in there just now and we've established no spoilers unless people ask out loud first.

But something did slip in, thanksfully I don't think it's a big one or anything so it's not air tight.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Scratch it - they can't help themselves.

Until release the chat rooms will be filled with spoilers and me picking on Kittykat and purposefully making her cry.

It will be harsh, I may be banned, but I am right.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I myself do read spoilers, but the problem is: As long as the chat isn't spoiler free, only few people will use it.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I just want to tell you that I am not responsible for the chatroom which has been established during my holidays. I have no mod privileges in there and have not used it myself. 
I wonder if it is possible to open individual discussions in there which can be labelled with warnings. If not, there has to be a basic agreement which everyone using it should respect. 
As for the conversation tone in there - it seems to be a bit ruder than over here on the board which I think is a pity. I have always appreciated the respectful ways in here and wish to keep them. 
I would request the Boss to help settling this problem. Thank you all. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I am not comfortable to use the chat room. Never ever did somewhere else.
1. I need to write slowly and sometimes (often) use the dictionary to check my spelling.
    I suppose nobody wants to wait untill I am ready.
2. I prefer to think before I post something because I can't take it back when it is out there.
3. I checked the chat-room and found out that the language is much more colloquial or slang. Can't understand everthing.

I would perhaps give it a try if we were allowed to use our native language. Which we don't. Or am I wrong? But that would exclude other members.
So I will stay here. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I'm sorry if I have offended someone on the chat .... i don't go spoilerish and my knowledge of them is nearly null but if I did, sorry about it....
I will stay away from it until this problem is settled

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Makes me wonder, when Series 3 starts airing are we allowed to talk about it in there or do we have to wait months until everybody on the entire forum has seen it so that we don't offend anyone with spoilers?

Re: CHAT ROOM!

If I remember it right there was simply a request to add the spoiler information to the chat link...

No but you may wish to give notice as to when it's appropriate to discuss humourous aspects of it which might upset you if mentioned too soon KK.

Cause you know, the world's yours and everyone must tiptoe around your fragile frame whilst you punt spoilers about wily-nily and cry like a victimised schoolgirl because Sherlock falling into the TARDIS swimming pool is somehow upsetting a year and a half after it's aired.

Goodness knows what Sherlock would say to your antics http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

M0r, you could at least try to be a bit nicer.

Seems we need a chat rule. "SPOILER WARING" or "NO SPOILERS ALLOWED".

Solved.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Kittykat and m0riarty, could you please settle your problems via PM? I think this discussion is not for the benefit of the other members and I frankly do not like the personal attacks. Thank you.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I don't have any problems. And I do think a warning about spoilers is the best solution.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I am confused, it doesn't take much http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png

1, Is the chat room spoiler free or not?
2, Would people use it if it was spoiler free?
3, Is it possible to have 2 chat rooms one for spoilers and one without ? (no idea how much time or effort it takes to set up)
4, Is it used by the same people because they unintentionally discuss spoilers?

I have only popped in now and then just because of time not topic. Would love to discuss Sherlock when it airs and I do think a chat room is easier to do that than the forum. It keeps it secret from those across the pond just incase something slips out by mistake. I know I would be really upset if I had managed to stay away from spoilers (not that I have) and someone accidently said something.
We are all adults and something will be worked out seeing as we all came together for one reason http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Talking in the chat room would be a lot easier for when Series 3 airs, rather than anywhere on here...
