Chatroom Feedback

For a while now, I've been overseeing the running of the TWO Chatroom. There hasn't been any major problems, so I'd say it's been a success so far.

When I first took over, I noticed that there was a big increase in the amount of people using the chatroom, so much so that we were getting some of the highest attendances in TWO's 5+ year history night after night. So before I go any further, I'd like to thank everyone, staff, regulars, first timers who stuck around, anyone who gave it a shot, I appreciate it.

Lately though, numbers have been dwindling. It could be the fact that the schools are back in some places, others are away on holiday or people are making the most of what's left of summer. I'm curious to find out if there's anything that can be done to curb this trend, so that's why you're reading this.

This is the chance to get anything off your chest related to the chatroom. What do you like about TWO's Chatroom? What do you dislike? Do you have any suggestions to improve things? Is there a particular chatroom user, either staff member or regular user, who deserves praise? Are you happy with the way things are being run, or would you like to see drastic changes?

Anything you can give myself and the rest of the chatroom staff to work with would be much appreciated. Feel free to go as indepth as you like. If you're uncomfortable posting your thoughts, send me a PM and you'll remain annonymous.

I'm genuinely interested in improving the chatroom and add new things to keep it as enjoyable as ever. If you need proof that we're here to listen to ideas, look at the success of the Team Quiz that was held recently. The idea was brought up, people jumped on board, the quiz was held and the majority of people enjoyed it.

Anyway, if you've got anything to add, be it positive or negative, I'd love to hear from you all. Thanks. :)

the only thing i dont like about the chatroom is people that are in there just to annoy people, yes i admit i was one of those people but i dont cause trouble anymore and i havent been kicked/banned for ages now but the people that come in and just swear, use caps etc. and break every rule, if you ask some of the regulars at the TWO chatroom that on time to time i do state the rules if there isnt a chatroom mod present and that's what gets on my nerves. other than that i think the chatroom is great, why else do you think im always in there, good job TWO :thumbup2:

p.s this post celebrates my 800th post, woo!

The problem is, it's full of idiots. The number of people who annoy me, is too uch for me to come in often. Each and every time, there will be a little group who wind people up.

The only way it will get popular with TWO users (again (I can't say for sure, as i wasn't around then)), is if the chatroom is linked to the forums.
I would be in a lot more often if that was the case, and I'm sure most other TWO posters would too.

Maybe a seperate room that is linked to the forums, while the rest is open for all, including non-forumers.

I think the only real problem is that certain times like right after the schools get out its filled with idiots that txt tlk and break all the rules and there are rarely even mods on MSN (that i have on my list) never mind mods in chat.

I'm always in at night times, so if anyone wants me to kick people, all it takes is a PM.

I tend to be in at midnight-2amish, but the last few weeks I have only managed about 2 nights due to work. :(

That will change soon though.....

Most people have me on MSN so I don't mind being MSNed. It just takes up to a few minutes sometimes because of other stuff I'm doing. ut 7 times out of 10, I'm there as quick as possible.

yeh, but atleast you come in everytime i ask.
What are you trying to say here? That you approach me on msn and tell me that theres trouble in the chat and i just ignore you? Doesnt happen. Stop trying to paint the bad guy picture for me. If you werent so annoying then you could still ask for me on msn but alas you are so annoying.

I like the Chatroom, but to be fair i've not been in as much recently as i was asy at the beginning of the summer.

the chatroom was was led me to the site and often has a great amount of varied talk. Yes wrestling chat can be scarce at times. But i like to think of the TWO forums and chatroom as a place for Wrestling fans to hang out, you could say it's home for outcasts.

The only real gripe i have with the place is the amount of "in" chat that goes on, you often get certain chatters who obviosly know each other better than other chatters they then go and have private conversations in the main room, when other chatters ask what they are on about they get barked at telling them to mind their own business. Keep it in PM or on instant messenger.

But yeah the chatroom rocks and the mods do a good job and you can find a mod in the chatroom at most times

I encourage everyone to try and make an apperance in the chatroom even if it's only from time to time.

Being a fairly new member to the forum I have been using the chatroom for the past 2 or 3 weeks but I like it a lot.

Obviously you get the odd idiot in their but that's just like any chatroom.

Big Craig, Clarkey, Sav and a few others seem to be in their whenever I go in there and we have a bit of a laugh, it's all good. :)

The only thing I would like though, is that maybe you should only be able to log in through your User CP or something to stop the imitators.

I don't know if that's possible though. :D

I'm usually in there a couple of hours a day so if you need some helping modding the place then just give me a nudge, I'd be happy to oblige.
