Thank you

Seriously though - I'm on here every day more or less and would have no problem doing it. C'mon peeps - more yes votes needed before I toddle off to Mark and Jason to get a new sub-forum added.

I've been speaking to them about it for a while already, Paul, but you should PM them about it also- the more views they hear about, the better.

All the best.

I was laughing as well, but there is sound reasoning behind the suggestion.

This has now gone from "shall we have a chat thread" to "we need a moderator". Frankly, no offence viv, if there is a structure and some guidelines in place i'm not convinced that we do or at least that they'll be very busy. It's friendly round these parts!

The poll is still against having a separate area. As for the moderator stuff - The admins will decide that I guess.

I just voted yes to a separate area. I'm not against banter in and amongst threads, but there has been an increase in threads going way off topic and in posts that I believe would be better suited to a general chat room. Wading through the dross can become rather tedious.

I'm all for it, and voted yes, as long as it doesn't prevent the occasional off-topic wander within sensible threads.

I agree that the "I'm too pissed to type" threads need to be elsewhere - no offense Carl.
