    i have a hard time believing it will stick mainly to CP stuff.......some of us try but are easily side tracked
    It is not so much that it has to be straight CP talk and we are fine with side tracks, that is part of general discussions. We would just like to avoid 100% or predisposition to off topic things. Like online gaming and talking to oneself...

    Is it alright to use private chats to ask someone if they want to play a game and avoid the game talk? Basically just say "do you want o play..." or no game talk what so ever?

    Do whatever you want using the private chat part of the shoutbox! No ones else sees those so do as you wish...

    Kamil- I already upped the limit to 2000 are you still booted out? I am under the same limits and can post fine to it. So I have to think you have in fact used them... I'll try 2500... let me know if you can or not... I asked you to tell me if you still could not in that PM reply when I upped it to 2500 and never heard from you.

    Edit: the reason I've kept fonts and colors active at this point is because I think that it helps separate out shouts... instead of them all blurring into one font one color text. If I see fonts that are hard to read- they will be reverted to typical black font.

    MAking a shout to have a game I think is fine. We would just like to avoid then having 6 hours of a minute by minute, play by play of said game in the public chat box. Especially when you consider that the only people who probably care about that are the people who are playing the game and they already know it case they are playing.

    By the same token I am sure you all have zero interest in what I am doing every 5 minutes here in the lab and so I shan't be making a post every 5 minutes to update you Make sense?

    So long as it's reasonable, I don't think it'd be much of a problem. But if I ask "Does anyone want to play Left 4 Dead with me?" A) I shouldn't ask again any time soon. B) If there are people that I commonly play L4D with, then I should contact them via some other method- if nobody else wants to play, then asking just clutters things up. C) I shouldn't talk about in-game things on the chatbox. Nobody else cares that I got the most zombies, nobody wants to hear "Oh darn!" "You got me!" "Thanks!" or any other out-of-context phrases.

    I believe the point is to prevent the chatbox from being hijacked by a few people talking about outside topics.

    Though, I could see that being amusing.

    9:05 Pyro: Getting coffee
    9:12 Pyro: Making bugs fight in the arena of my empty coffee cup
    9:20 Pyro: Doing science
    9:24 Pyro: Woops! Dropped another petri dish!
    9:32 Pyro: There... there's been a terrible accident. If any of you are still alive to see this... I'm sorry... So sorry...

    I love labs.

    haha! I said the same thing to him in email... here is what he said.

    It really is quite boring. For example, just now I finished plating out 190 strains. Wee fun. That took 2 hours. so that would be:

    Plating strains

    Plating strains

    Still plating strains

    Still plating strains

    Still plating strains

    Still plating strains

    ....
