Yeah, it's a really great idea as long as there was a block user feature and a profanity filter.

 

Good idea, otherwise, bambino.

It would probably be abused by spambots in no time. What about a QQ group?

  I like the idea, i'm sure it'd be popular. I wonder how an open forum Chinese class would go down too.

Well, if it's a flop, I won't feel bad about the QQ group. Maybe I'll post a blog about it, so more people can join. It's a group of 3 at the moment. Nicholas seems to be more of a veteran, and webmaster to boot. I saw an option to transfer ownership, so I think that's best.

And a 4th was added, MinasBear. If a lot of people join, then there will be lots of fun conversations to be had. It turns out that ownership of the QQ group can't be transferred until I've known nicholas for at least 7 days. So either we wait it out, or nicholas could register a new group instead, which we all join again. It's up to you, really.

Thought about it once. Think I even suggested a chat room at some point. Don't remember. Believe it was pooh-poohed by the board. Oh well...

Frankly, and no offense intended to the board members - I'd rather chat with my mates down at Old Jacks, my favorite pub in QD, Sitting around a table, familiar faces rocking up throughout the night, chatting, and then moving on only to be replaced by other familiar faces. A guitar exchanging hands at the table. A sing-along. "More beer, Nancy! It's Alan's shout."  "Whoa! Check out those three hotties that just waltzed through the front door!" "Jackson! Whisky all around!"

That's a chat room.

Har!  Yes, Red, you are right.  I've been in that chat room.  

What kind of chat room have they been discussing above?  I'm guessing it's some kind of computer thing.  Something that's not real.  Hmm..  Am I missing out on anything here?  

Nah...don't think so.  

Got the new, 4 disc, Fleetwood Mac set for Xmas and it's rockin on right now.  If you were here, I'd chat with you.

 As it is, I'm sharing the music with my fellow dwellers above and below.  They haven't got a choice really.  It'll sure beat that Peking Opera drivel they usually listen to, that's for sure!

While I do like some members past and present, there are some here that I can't be bothered to exchange witty insults with. I think a chat group would just get ugly.

I'd say by far this is the best forum I've on used, we all have different ideas and opinions that lead to the right answer. Together we make a pretty health life style on here.

But adding a Chat room might run the risk of Visa cheating agents and that kind of stuff and lust for revenge chatting IF you didn't like the persons answer.

Shenzhen expat has a chat room, filled with laowai lovers looking to get emotionally abused and creepy old dudes. Im not sure why the forum here is so clean and usefull, but something about chat rooms turns people rude and creepy. Id imagine alot of the same if it happened on echinacities, but if the same regulars here spent some time on it, i think id enjoy it.

But no vicky, there would be no other topics, just her dumb questions about horrible laowai and everyone else calling her a dumb bitch.

if people want a chat room, then go to one.

the reason i like this forum is that you can PM people if you want.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
