Title: OUR OWN APK SOCIALIZE CHATROOM SWEET!
Post by: Jesse Wharton on May 25, 2010, 02:25:42 PM
Hey guys I made a chat just for us so instead of having conversations on the forums we can just chat there and save the forums for useful or really funny stuff. Just go to http://americanparkour.chatango.com/group and start talking either go on anonomously type you name or handle or make an account which takes < a minute

If you use a name, try to use either real name, or something close to your APK name. Makes it SOOOO much easier to figure out who's who [You can also log in with a temporary name]

YAY I got a sticky  ;D anyway I just saw a lot of the old traceurs getting pissed and all the actual conversations going on on the forums so i remembered this one chat utility on all the anime sites i go to so i made a chat as an example. I didn't think it would be this popular.

It's going well, but be careful it doesn't turn into a live 4chan. It was rather annoying in there for a bit this evening, I had to log off.

And since it's real time, it's just that much worse.

Just to you know, keep everything under proper authority and such, something about APK's rules and how the chatroom's member's opinions do not reflect APK's opinions and yadayadayada  :)

It IS under the name of American Parkour, and we want to keep APK a fun friendly place. :)

I'll notify M2 and he can decide what to do.

I'm confused as to exactly what you are notifying M2 about? Several mods, including Andy Keller have made appearances in there. We've also carried over the APK rules, including forbidden topics. (politics, etc.) Although that isn't posted anywhere, all the chat room mods, and most of the current regulars are aware that APK is the governing base, and the same rules apply. The chat rarely even gets heated, it's a very friendly atmosphere.

Well, it's still good for me to know, especially since it has APK's name on it :)

Can someone please make a moderator on it, and I'd suggest dissallowing anon posts ...

How has it been so far?

Well, I kinda figured since Andy stickied this thread, that you at least knew about it.

There are several moderators, but our powers are limited to deleting posts, and un/banning users. There are enough mods, that there is usually at least one on if it's being used.

So far, we've only had one person that I know of that posted as anon for any length of time, and he was being respectable, so there was no issues. Most people put their name in pretty fast.

Not too many people frequent it, I think the most there has ever been on at once was 9, but it's usually 3-5 on average. We chat about all kinds of things, quite frequently even Parkour! But you never know when you log in what is going to be going on. But it's all been very adult, for the most part, so far. No problems. Nobody has had to be asked to clean up their act.

Jesse, can you prevent anon people from posting? That's not a bad idea.

(Although, now that I think about it, they can just pick xxxxxx as a name, so it really wouldn't make a difference)

I believe all of it. In fact, I'd be surprised if anything else happened. But, there's always that thing of legal issues, and with an open chatroom such as this, the troublemakers of the internet (a.k.a. trolls) could easily hop on and that's where things go downhill. But even then, the mods should have that covered :)

But like I said, it's that legal issue stuff.

None of us would want to see APK get into trouble because of it. :-X

Yea I just made it as an example. I never actually intended it to get the popularity it did. I though hey if I took the initiative maybe we can do something about all the whining in socialize. I never meant to do anything to upset the awesome mods and admins of apk.

Don't forget our semi-regular broadcasts from Tinychat too! 

We had an awesome time there last night.  In fact, apparently we made the front page of Tinychat, because Devin and Kyle are just so darn cool.

Come to the APK Socialize chat and you'll find links to our broadcast, for sure.

Isn't one level of chat enough? Why have a chat room, just to switch to a tiny-chat room?

What's next, micro-chat?
teeny weeny chat?
infinitesimal chat?

 :P

Hey guys, if any of your schools or workplaces have sites blocked, such as the site for the chat room, just go to hidemyass.com  (http://hidemyass.com) and type in the URL to the blocked site and it grants you access.  The only downside to it is if your administrator has blocked hidemyass...  Which, unfortunately, my school has... Oh well, beggars can't be chosers!

I'd like to take this moment to remind everyone that this chat is still up and running. A few of us check in every now and then, but it is clearly dying without anyone frequenting it. It's been revived multiple times before. Let's see if we can't keep our baby alive.
