Chat and Greetings Thread for Members (Archived from WX)

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:28 pm

This thread is established for each of you so inclined to chat on the main discussion threads. With this thread, I hope that all chat-type posts will no longer disrupt the other threads.

Please Read the Following Four Paragraphs


The four paragraphs below were initially part of the initial post to start the thread that began July 27, 2006; however I have also included them at the beginning of this new chat thread for those who visit this thread for the first time or for those who failed to read this when it was initially posted. - Kip

A lot has changed since this series of threads began. This thread has cemented numerous friendships and has fostered my belief that we are a true, loving, and interesting Forum Family. I read every post on this thread because I feel it conveys really what is happening in our Harry Potter World and it provides priceless information as to where we are heading and what is really important to our Forum Family.

Being that we have new members coming on board on a regular basis, modifications of some of our guidelines are necessary. Remember we have a worldwide membership from many different cultures and backgrounds, many of whom English (whether it is American, the Queen's, or other variants from around the world) is not their primary, or even secondary, language. Often in our friendly chats, words or abbreviations are used that many have no idea of their meanings. Some of us enjoy being a sleuth and searching to figure out what is the true definitions of what is posted; however many are turned off and skip the post or even quit reading the thread altogether.

I am sure that many of you know what I am relating. On 11 July 2006 I established a thread, # Controversy Originating from "Tell About Yourself" Posts, which later opened up a discussion on abbreviations with the fourth part of Vulture's Jul 15, 2006 9:02 am message. I strongly suggest that you read and understand what is produced in this thread.

The thread, ** Commonly Used Abbreviations for the Lexicon Forums, is reviewed often and sometimes modified; therefore I suggest you read it as well. Check back often to see how the updates affect you. I do not want any guidelines to destroy the family atmosphere; however I also do not want the use of unknowns to keep those away from enjoying our comradery. Our Hosts can only do so much and we leave the rest up to you as Participants. Always remember you can use the thirty minutes following your post to edit the content. Try to consider how your post appears to others.

This is the twenty-third thread provided for chat-type posts since September 25, 2003. The first -- Chat and Greeting Thread (25 Sep 03 to 26 Feb 04) had 2752 messages before it was closed out February 26, 2004.

This thread's title/purpose was changed from 'Chat and Greetings Thread for Members' to 'Chat and Greetings Thread for Members (Archived from WX) on Tues April 19, 2011. A linked index of these threads is being constructed, and can be found in the following post. Potteraholic, Tues April 19, 2011

EDIT: Message from Denise from a later post dated April 19, 2011 inserted into this post. (I deleted the later post to streamline the flow of this thread, from header post, to index, to the contents of Chat thread, Volume I, etc.) Potteraholic, Fri July 29, 2011

Since this thread was initially established on WX, things have changed and really, I am not sure that the information in here still applies. It does make more sense to place it in the archived section.
