    ABW Chat Etiquette
    I just want to vent a little about the ABW chat. What's nice about it is I hear a little chime when somebody joins, so I can almost always greet newcomers. But what really gets me is when I say hello and the they leave without responding! This isn't just new ABW members either. I've been given the cold shoulder by ABW regulars before. I don't mind so much if I didn't catch you in time to say hi, but please at least say hi when I greet you! You came there to socialize, didn't you?

    It must be Alan who popped in without saying HI. My theory behind that is, I think Alan was in the hurry to change his Kyle avitar.

    Hola Scott!

    Scott, anyone who leaves a minute after they enter hasn't come to socialize. They just clicked on the link to see what it looked like. I've done that many times on various chats on other sites. In such a case, I have to disagree that it's poor etiquette to not acknowledge your welcome.

    Snib is only showing one recent example. Quite often folks will come in there, ignore acknowledgements of their arrival, and then disappear anywhere from minutes to hours later without having said a word.

    That erks me too! If I pop in and everyone is busy, I at least leave a "message" or a passing through hello.

    I've been helping a neighbor in her gardens so haven't been in much but will try to make it in today. We need to get a coffee talk going on in the morning lol

    My computer often gets confused by chat rooms and opens a chat window for me but hides it behind other windows where I can't find it. So the people think I'm there but I've really given up and gone on to something else. I don't chat any more because I find the time galloping away every time I do.

    Sometimes I log in there because I am looking for someone and then if they aren't there I leave.
    And really, it is chat...not a major life issue, other things to worry about

    Yeah.... you used to be able to see who was in the chatroom before entering, but that feature disappeared with the last board upgrade. It would be nice to see it reintroduced.

    I don't mean any of you guys. You're all great! I appreciate the amount of time you'll deal with my endless chatter. And I'm sorry to everybody who finds me sleeping behind the chat wheel without my little (Away) flag!

    That would be something I might do. I am too slow for chat as I have seen it. People type 4 questions for me while I'm still on the first one. I would enjoy sitting silently and reading the messages but feel like a goof and stay out.

    Maybe some nice ABW etiquette rules that would let someone slowly adapt without feeling like a lurker.

    Scott, I would love to chat with you, if nothing more than to enjoy the fun of hand-to-hand combat over your fallacious C*ontent is King theories. But hey man, you are always sleeping.

    Either wake up and join the party, or catch me on IM and we can duke it out any time.

    Sorry I didn't catch you this morning, but 5am is a bit too early for me to be getting up!
