Who is running a general chat type of forum?
Raise your hand and post a link, please.
XF or vB based?
Either, I guess.
But preferably XF-based.
Technically a general chat board, but frankly no one ever visits it and I don't expect anyone to ever visit it. But it's also my fault, I really don't put much time into it. It's really more for coding practice and not much more.
I always wonder how people just random sign up to chat forums - I guess it must be a certain topic that interests them I guess
I like general chat forums because you're not stuck to one 'theme'. You can talk about anything and everything.
Which is good for me because my brain is constantly on the go, and I need an outlet.
sure, but i would have thought that places like that get hit bad by the likes of facebook
Not that I've seen.
Depends, but a lot of people probably try to present themselves in a certain way to their 'friends' on Facebook. Generally that can hamper discussion because people may not want to argue or get overly into a point. Equally people may not want to discuss or join pages on Facebook that take stances on issues such as religion, politics and other emotive issues. And people tend to be more confident in their discussions if they feel anonymous.
That's obviously not the case for a lot of people, but a fair chunk of people on Facebook use it strictly for keeping up to date, rather than actively discussing things etc.
Exactly. And I like discussion.
So who else has a gen chat forum??
General (Local Community) Chat: www.dodgeboard.com
*Looks down at sig.*
Yup. Pretty wide open forum there.
Mine is a general chat but covers more area than the local vicinity. It's for the residents of the entire valley here in NE Ohio and NW PA.
Although at first glance, your forum looks as though it's for fans of comics.
LOLOL some of them slide images are win gj keep it up
No politics, no religion, but just me posting! bwahhbwhahbhahbwahaha. Still trying to do some server testing.
so is this a general chat forum that is open for registration? Or just your test site?
