Ice Club, if you want to change a topic, all you'd need to do is say something about the topic at hand and then say "Let's switch the topic to ___" so it wont be seen as spam. Simple enough!

As Audy said, if we didn't have the rule then the conversation would get really disrupted and this'd end up turning into more a "Post Your Thoughts Right Now!" thread than anything else. The fact that the topic does change in this thread kinda goes to show that it's free-form, though. I definitely get where you're coming from and it's unfortunate that you find it hard to jump into the conversations here but it's for the best that we don't allow random topic changes.
See this is the purpose TCTI used to serve, for me at least. It was a total free for all regarding the topic.

If what was going on with you was interesting enough though, it'd generate a conversation; If not someone else's would.

It wasn't ever designed to be a place to chat though, so that's why it didn't really matter what you posted.

And that's why I still love that thread :( It's like twitter but allowing you to write as much as you can.

But twitter is not the best way to keep a conversation, precisely, and that's the purpose of this thread so :P

That'd be kind of pointless if you were trying to make a conversation from it though.

To be honest, I don't know anyone who successfully makes an actual conversation out of a status update. They're either looking for support, attention, people being nosy, etc. Hmm I dunno, maybe this is why I don't have a twitter and I hardly update my facebook.

That all depends on how interested people are in what you're saying.

I used to be really into Twitter. Now I have virtually no use for it and deactivated my account. It just got so boring.

I think that's also why both my twitter and facebook accounts are more or less rotting by now (facebook more so, since at least I'll use twitter every once in a while).

It's just...I dunno, I don't usually have much interesting to talk about myself on there, and I'm not going to put a status update on every little boring thing I do, so. Those things will sit unused by me until such a time as something does happen.

(Plus in the case of Facebook, if I don't use it I can claim I don't have one without feeling like I'm lying - very good for people I know online who keep asking if I have one, and yet I don't want to give it to them. ><)

I think it's been just very recently been two years since I deleted my facebook, and a little over a year since I deleted my Twitter.

I decided a while ago that I'd like to keep my online life separate from my offline life, as nobody in my offline life visits the internet for the same reasons I do.

Guess I'm against current and just started tweeting somewhat XD; You can make convos out of it to certain extents cause it's just a lot of replies back and forth, only with a character limit. Even in real life chats, conversations start about talking about something of interest generally or you ask what is going on in the other person's lives. Twitter/facebook just cut out the middle step by having the person talk about how things are going in their daily lives, without someone asking about it first. It's just one of many ways to keep in contact with people really.

Aren't forums like PC here to serve similar functions? You can't have the greatest/"more private" chats with members strictly through the threads, but you can find people of similar interest and then PM them to further the friendship.

I rarely ever post status updates on Twitter or Facebook. I use them as another form of communication - most of my tweets are @ other people and having a conversation with them.

As far as PM goes, I prefer having one-on-one real time conversations on IM clients. PM and email just aren't the same as having an MSN or Skype convo.

Yes that is true, but how you get IMs/Skypes in the first place is via PM/Email first probably XD; Yeah most of the time I just tweet responses to others, but then it's more a method to chat with existing friends instead of expanding your social circle.

While we're on that topic though *randomly IMs Mork*

Yeah this basically! Though I do like to keep facebook to keep in touch with old friends, acquaintances, and old collegues too! Once in a while it is nice to get or send them a message

I used to do that as well when I first started out on Twitter, it was quite fun,haha. Then the people I used to talk to on there just stopped talking to me which is sad, but oh well :(

This brings our total up to 8 or so now? xD Though it looks like they merged in the Assistant Admins.

Something like that. Seeing this makes me wonder if those AA positions are now open to other potentials, or if they've completely removed AA and merged it with Staff Admins.

That's what I was wondering too. I wonder who the new Assistant Admins would be if that were the case. :0

Well, ever since Fabs got promoted to SMod, VG has been without a mod for a while. There's a number of slots open here. But me thinks that they got rid of AAs because they were too similar to SAs.

What was the difference between them anyway? I always thought that the Assistant Mods did all the coding and stuff because the only one I really saw was Audy.

It's actually kind of intimidating, the red colour I mean. Could be just me but the orange felt a bit more reassuring.
All you people with your post counts in the thousands you.

Im kind of confused about the difference between Assistant Admins and Staff Admins myself. Then again this is the first forum I've been to with such a difference,so it's confusing for me. On other forums it's just Mod, Super Mod and Admin.
