What are today's topics? :D

vote-for11vote-against

@inkycatz: Teen pregnancy, the Olympics, and The Hoff

vote-for6vote-against

@lichme: those are topics I can get behind. Let's throw in pregnant strippers and I think we're all set

Now if only I could manage to log myself on at home while I'm at work, so I can try to catch up with the general insanity when I get home. :ponders:

vote-for6vote-against

lets add a topic to this thread: cowboydann has talked in the past about starting an email reminder so he doesn't have to post this thread continuously. who here would be up for that? and would you mind giving out your email address to someone as strange as cowboydann is to get the reminders?

vote-for6vote-against

@moosezilla: If people want an email reminder, they should just subscribe to this thread and have cbd post here every week to ping them.

vote-for5vote-against

@lichme: I was thinking about taking a pass on this week to watch the Olympics.... but if we are going to be discussing The Hoff I might not be able to pass it up!

vote-for6vote-against

@lichme: I like your simple solution.

vote-for5vote-against

I wonder if The Hoff will make a surprise appearance?

vote-for10vote-against

Subscribing to this question would only notify those who already know about the Wednesday chats. Those who haven't seen this will remain uninformed. If I recall correctly, there's at least 1, sometimes more, who know nothing about it. Plus, I often ignore OLD em notifications received; have found more than once that they're spam posts.

I vote for a fresh weekly reminder to jog everyone's memory, including newcomers. And I like that the weekly reminder has the link (easy access), and usually explains that people are there every day, not just Wednesdays. As aside: What the devil is the harm in posting this each week? Is the Question section getting too crowded? ;-)

vote-for4vote-against

@gmwhit: I was suggesting a notice via this thread in addition to a weekly post, for those few who may not be here everyday. I personally like the weekly thread too and would be more likely to ignore an email.

vote-for4vote-against

@lichme: Ah...that wasn't clear to me. Why bother w/the extra post on this thread if a new 'question' is posted each week? <---rhetorical ;-)

vote-for5vote-against

@lavikinga: Yes, that might be interesting. Some staff members are active on chat. Others, I don't think I've seen at all. Pondering...I wonder if Hoff is Intern. ;-)

vote-for6vote-against

@gmwhit: Chat isn't official (and I've never been in there) so it's probably best not to guess based on that. :)

vote-for7vote-against

@inkycatz: Know it's not official. My pondering guess wasn't based on that alone. :-)

Besides, one has no way of knowing who is really who(m) on chat. You can make up any nick you wish. Most (AFAIK) use their deals nick. As w/all of the internet, some play games & pretend to be who they are not. I usually take everything w/a tablespoon (up from a grain because of inflation) of salt.

vote-for5vote-against

Can we talk about pregnant strippers on acid?

vote-for7vote-against

@gmwhit: Well if anyone comes in and pretends to be me, there will be words said.

vote-for7vote-against

@inkycatz: Oh words will be said all right!

I'm not sayin, just sayin.....

vote-for6vote-against

@inkycatz: If a tree falls in the forest...blah, blah. How would you know someone was there pretending to be you, if YOU don't join in? ::innocent look::

Caveat as stated previously: I don't know for sure if anyone is who they say they are in chat. Even those who identify themselves as Staff members. Oh, I just thought of something - you could be informed of what is said on chat by another 'Staff' member! ...Swallowing another tablespoon of salt. This can't be good for my blood pressure, eh?

vote-for3vote-against

@gmwhit: I wouldn't know until someone tries to bring up something, thinking I was in there and said it.

Safest avenue is to stay out, that way everyone knows any inkycatz (or cats) is a clear imposter. :)

vote-for5vote-against

I can't put my name in before it switches me to the chat page. I'll try again tonight.

vote-for7vote-against

@dontwantaname: and anyone else having this problem!

Just type this: "/nick NICKNAME" without the quotes and nickname being your woot name

vote-for3vote-against

@lichme: Can I add accidental misuse of sarcasm?

vote-for3vote-against

Can we please discuss the "Match Throwing" controversy brewing in Olympic Badminton?

vote-for10vote-against

@inkycatz: Of course there'll be words said inky. It's chat, after all.

vote-for5vote-against

@inkycatz said, "Chat isn't official (and I've never been in there) ...."

Just so you know, we talk about the people who don't show up, and make up funny stories about them.....
;-)

@captainsuperdawg: Well, I am slain by logic.

Up for grabs... one "inkycatz" corpse...
edited in - @reginafilangee - Remember me fondly and with much humor! ;)

vote-for2vote-against

@inkycatz: Oh, no! You'll be deeply missed by many. :-/

...grabbing inkycatz's corpse to take to chat. ;-)

vote-for6vote-against

@inkycatz: I've never been, either. Just not fun for me.

...on the other hand...

I don't mind a once a week question announcing it. It's nice, rather like a bookmark that says it's Wednesday, again. I think a question, once a week, as a reminder, remains the best solution. Even though I don't really have a horse in the race, I vote yes for continuing to post the question.

Okay, back outside for me.

vote-for5vote-against

@inkycatz: Never been in Wootchat? If that wasn't you, then who the hell did we just induct into our Amateur Curling League?

vote-for2vote-against

@cowboydann I just fiddled around with the new client for a sec, apparently it won't join the server if you try to join with the default nickname..
It seems like one of those problems that somebody is bound to have, so it seemed like a good idea to make it known :)

vote-for2vote-against

Pregnant strippers? I'm in!

vote-for3vote-against

Potential topics for chat:

Teen pregnancy
The Olympics
The Hoff
Pregnant strippers
Pregnant strippers on acid
Match 'throwing' re: Badminton Olympics

Given the possible topics listed on today's notice, I understand why "people don't show up." :-/

It really isn't that bad people. Lots of joking, sarcasm & good humored kidding. Interesting exchanges w/staff. Have learned a lot from them. And yet, there are a few members who... :-X

I will be a bit late tonight.....save the good convo till I get there, lol.

@raider9924: errrmmm Unless it improves, don't bother. Well, that is, if you find the entire hoff thing a boring farce. A PamelaAnderson has joined in. :-|

@iggz: awww iggz, thanks!
