The chatroom is spooky.

I entered and everyone began talking in german...damn you profile!

I'm not sure whether to be offended or thankful.

Talking in German? We started that before you came in. Just one of those silly "Hey who speaks this" things. A lot of the people in there were finished work so to speak and weren't up to chatting about the day job after hours.

mea culpa, mea culpa, mea frickin' culpa.

of speaking German in the chat...I did that.

The problem with the chat, is that some of us frequent it too much. And we start to view it as the mess...We save the more serious stuff for the forums. Not that it means that we don't discuss some serious issues in there, but it's the same people a lot of the time.

I do second the statement of it being Card's fault...and Shortbus's...and mine...and definitely Trinity and HoM too....wow....we're all horrible human beings

I have to agree with you there. I think part of it is some of us are there quite often and feel we are hanging out with friends, which can cause things to get carried away. Also, I do have to own up to my share of the behaviour. Mike, I apologize for it. I do respect your site, and your rules.

Thanks... It's not a "big" issue but I generally don't like to wait until it gets to that point, so a I'm hoping that a gentle reminder will do the trick. It sounds like that's probably going to work just fine.

I'm not trying to suck the fun out of the chat room, just trying to make sure we have a chat room for your kids to frequent some day. ;)


Cheers

Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

How the heck did my name manage to be left off the list here? Perhaps I hid too well behind HorM's unused BEWs??

I apologize Mike. I am the worst offender.

I agree Vern. I feel slighted too.  :'(   I guess it's 'cause we're too sweet & innocent.

The obvious way to clean up the chat room is to ban the Padre. Or better yet, perhaps keep him in there, but don't let him speak - - that way we can continue to mock him, but he can't ratchet up the inappropriate behaviour, only to blame his actions on Card/Camo.

Speak of the sweet and innocent and I shall appear.  Although I could shift the blame, as others have tried to do, and blame it on being led down the garden path, I too have been part of the uncouth crowd.  So since they have said their parts well, ditto to Card and Camochick's comments.

Oh, don't think that I consider you two above reproach...You're two of the worst offenders, after HoM and myself, of course.  :D

Actually, I think a worthy punishment would be for Mike to get some strings pulled, and have all of us posted to an isolated post, like Italy, or Australia, somewhere were the sun would punish us all, and then give us control of the mess, and not give us internet access...We're happy, everyone else will remain unoffended... It could Work!

seriously though, I'll try to cut down on the innappropriate innuendo and such....I won't type it, but you'll all know that I'm thinking it really hard!

I think that would solve the problem. Can I tag along as the civilian observer?

I can accept responsility for many things, but being sweet and innocent isn't one of them. >:D  I too am guilty as charged; I'd hate to do anything that would result in long time members getting in trouble or worse having their chat taken away. Just new here and following the flow of things.

I think...

The UN should vote and send delegates.. lets say.. a peacekeeping
force INTO the chat to ensure that all sides agree by the binding
arbitration put forth in the rules and user agreements of army.ca.   :P

Des, what a great idea. Let's go with Australia. Also, will BMQ be offered there? I really don't want to have to delay my app again.  :)

I guess we could run a BMQ there....surfing in squads...

I'll be the Padre, and Trinity can be the Chief Instructor....JMan can be the medic...anyone else interested in positions for our Degenerate forced move to Australia, and concurrent alcohol-full BMQ?

I never seen this suggested, or am I aware that it has ever been suggested. Why not offer a chat service through this site, get 1-on-1 person advice, not through the forums? It's more personable than through the forum. You can do it through an IRC server, or using my geeky computer skills I could whip up a java chat client which could be implimented into the site; either that or you can use one of many availabe free clients on the internet which is at hand any time you may wish to use, opensource baby - open source.

Hi Matt, we actually had an IRC based chat room for quite a while, but we now use Flashchat. It's available ot any member who has been here for 3 hours and has 10 posts.

Edit: I should point out that users who add inane posts simply to reach the 10 will find their posts deleted, and may even be on warning. Please folks, just participate normally and you'll get to the chat room in a reasonable time.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this... I can't get into the chat room, when I click on  "chat" the screen at the top says " army chat, all messages logged." Then the rest of the screen is blank (white). Do I have to install something or the other? Help?

Most likely a flash plugin issue, you can download the latest version here http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash&promoid=BIOW ...install by following the prompts then come back and try again:)
