GABBLY - NO LONGER ENDORSED BY 3A

Postby bjr » Sun Mar 16, 2008 11:35 pm

As you have seen the Gabbly thread has been deleted. The reasons being is that it is under constant troll attacks and trolls are impersonating Admin and Mods, therefore we have had no alternative but to delete it and we are no longer endoring the use of it.

Apologies to all those that have suffered abuse on it and we felt it was a good idea at the time, especially when the site went down, but constant abuse to members by trolls has forced us to make this decision.

Couldn't we find an alternative meeting place to chat, and invite trusted members by email or pm maybe. That way, the troll wouldn't be able to come and disrupt things everytime.

Most of us here on 3a are the genuine article. invite by email or pm seems a sensible idea. what say you?

That's a shame the trolls had to ruin it. I really enjoyed talking to everyone on there.

I know it is a shame, I enjoyed having conversations with you all, but we will take your comments on board and have a think and see what we can do.

This is a shame, to what lengths will people go to spoil a fantastic forum.

I can't understand these saddos but you know something else they will read this and it will give them a kick.

Thanks BJR and all the admins/mods for all you do.

It is GREATLY appreciated.

I agree that its really sad that some people seem to get their kicks out of disrupting others, I would also appreciate an email or PM with an alternative if anything were to happen.

I also was on that chat site room the other night for approx 10 minutes. BUT didnt feel comfortable with some of the language seen on screen. I am far from being a prude, but it wasnt for me. I had registered to enable me to use my user name, but on reflection having received an e mail from them, I DIDNT click on it to confirm registration.

I did wonder why the msn community chat room wasnt used. I am a member of the msn commmunity which i think its hitheto ( excuse if I got the wrong name ) has opened. I dont know whether this would assist in the troll issue or not.

I am working on providing a moderated owned alternative.

Watch this space.

Just to recap, anyone still using that chatroom should not pay attention to anyone claiming to be from admin/moderation of this site as we active do not use it.

Thanks for considering that, nbrado.

I like "chat" (though I only use moderated "cafes" attached to sites where I am part of the community) - you get to "know" people a bit better and can often get more of a sense of where they're coming from than from a board post.

It was good meeting some people in Gabbly but I agree, the dumb one-trick trolls were a nuisance. Although I'm not techie myself, I am quite sure that there's better chat-room software available.
