I thought the same when we used to have it. I thought the only point really was for comms in game. However, it then moved on to finishing gaming and just staying on for a chat after, and then even just people going on to have a chat.

Traffic's traffic. Nothing wrong with that really. If it gets the forums more popular and active that's what we want, surely? I think you're probably overestimating just how much this new thread or whatever would be used though lol.

We used to have it for the gaming side of things last summer. That capitulated soon after you joined and we've just not looked into anything like that again since.

I moved from tomshardware forums to OC3D mainly because of the great community OC3D has by far. Teamspeak or chat box would make it even better.
had over 300 anwsers and 34 best solutions, an article etc, but it became really boring on tom's hardware

I don't know of a better community than ours

imagine there are ~200 posts a day in that thread with just people chit-chatting, you will have to read all of it to ensure everybody behaves.
200 posts is of course quite a high estimation, but it's possible.

lol, we couldn't disallow a thread because it would be too popular.

If someone could make a thread that got 200 posts a day consistently I'd be amazed.

Anyway, members on here are responsible enough to behave themselves, and if certain people didn't, the other responsible members would quickly make us aware of it if we hadn't already seen it. As long as basic ground rules are clearly displayed, there's no issue with it.

We all pretty much adhere to basic forum etiquette & every now and again there of cause are the odd exceptions that just need a bit of gentle polite guidance to the usual no no's (thread hijacking, double posting, swearing).

I have seen many "chit chat" threads on other forums get out of hand and just turn into a riot especially when someone hits on the inevitable Intel/AMD argy bargy and then the trolling starts which always gets ugly... which WILL end in someone saying a little too much and getting banned.

I don't think a general "Chit chat" thread is really needed here as there are many many threads in the General Forum anyway which pretty much cover most possible topics from "Last purchase", "Last thing you ate", "FML", "post your desktop"... they go on and on.

I guess same rules apply in there, no double posting unless it's inactive for a couple of days?
