I’m really pleased to announce that our chatroom is now open.
If you saw the sneaky latest poll, you probably figured out already that a chatroom was on its way. It’s nice to know that so many of you will be using it.
Before you rush there to find that it’s closed, there are just a few rules and suggestions.
If you could use the names you’ve used on the blog, that would obviously help everyone know who’s who.
It’s not going to be open all the time. The initial idea is that I arrange a set time, schedule a session (details to be posted on the calendar) and just see how it goes. It’ll also be open whenever I’m bored, so do keep an eye on it to see when it’s open.
Now for the boring stuff.
If you remain inactive for thirty 15 minutes, you get kicked out. So don’t be shy, say something!
You can’t write endlessly. There’s a 200-character maximum each time you ‘speak’ to keep things moving (199 characters have been used in this paragraph to give you an idea of how much you can write in one go).
Please don’t SHOUT, as your text will automatically be converted to lower case with the first letter of each word capitalised, which looks really stupid.
Private messaging is, for the moment, disabled.
Feel free to talk about (almost) whatever you want, but please bear in mind the rules of the blog and that this is an official artist site. I really don’t want to have to eject anyone for taking things too far.
Therefore, the usual applies to talk of bootlegging, tribute bands, fansites, etc.
Hope you like it.
It will be open for most of today, so come and help me test it.
