    Default CBR Chat

    Howdy, folks.

    As you might have noticed, we've eliminated the chat threads on the various other boards, as we felt that having dedicated off-topic discussions on each board leads to a fractured, almost tribalistic sense of mini-communities where it was almost like an "us" vs. "them" atmosphere on what should be just one big forum. Just having them all moved to the same board really doesn't change that, it just puts them all on the same board. So instead we've decided to just have one general chat thread for all of CBR's forums.

    We understand that this is a bit of a culture shock, but you'll still be able to talk and interact with your old friends from your respective boards, you'll just be doing it in a thread with other people from different boards. Hopefully you'll make new friends, as well.

    The rules for this thread are the same as they are for the rest of the forums, just you can talk about anything without worrying about staying on topic.

    Brian see this is really whats wrong with the new CBR. Instead of coming into Rita's and saying , guys were changing it and gonna merge the discussion threads all into one ok. To make it open....your locking ...deleting and locking stuff ASAP. I mean was there ever a problem with Rita's ? I liked Rita's. It was a homage to what made CBR , CBR. Its like this place is pissing all over its past to force posters to do certain things. Its taking the fun from CBR.

    This is...surprising. It's like instead of having our own clubhouse, we just have this one bar.

    I know that's what you wanted, but still...

    IAM Marvel Community will be relocating to the Bendis board.

    I really wish it hadn't come to this.

    Agree with SUPER. Some transparency, warning, information, etc. would be nice. Otherwise, what's the point of posting if we don't know the rules because they haven't been made clear? Besides being nice to each other, it's really unclear what's allowed and what's not allowed. For gawdsakes mods, give us the guidelines first.

    I kinda get what you're going for, but I don't think it was so much 'tribalistic' as just like a Skype call between you and a group of friends. Now it seems like it's just gonna be more chaotic.

    You're just pissed there'll be no more Rita's Championships for you.

    I mean I like bars and all, but the old chat threads felt more like an in house party.

    Oh well.

    As the saying goes ...this went over like a fart in church.

    Again CBR means well....but guess what...the idea is kinda wrong. The discussion threads were groups of people who got along 90% of the time and had their own groups they clicked with. Its like forcing various ethnic groups together to have 1 place and be in peace. Not realizing they have little in common and won't.

    Also I love the new CBR motto of...if there is even a hint of negativity...delete it. Honestly ...is this what you want to run now ? A comic book forum where even the legit hint of negativity gets deleted ? Because honestly you have a hell of a job ahead because its the internet and no one can stop every negative thing from popping up.

    You do realize it's either going to become a clusterfuck or just no one will post here right?

    Making an all encompassing chat is extreme

    To be fair I could crown myself the CBR Chat Champion now. But being honest read my last post. Its really becoming insanely funny at this point. With this going negative will Brian be deleting it all ? Hell what is negative anymore ? I could post a thread joking about Chris Brown and the wrong Mod could come in and go....damn that is negative...let me delete that.

    It's just a little excessive. We're going to end up as one forum only at this rate.

    You can't delete every hint of negativity unless you want to be a tyrant
