We'll have to get a chat bot that posts "WELCOME NEW MEMBERS" every thirty seconds to avoid alienation.

Nah :P I definitely do think that having a shout box of some sort is a good idea- I agree that giving a sample of chat would give people an idea of whether they'd want to join- it's just something worth considering potential drawbacks of. (I mean, have you seen the screen shot thread? :lol: )

I think that for sure we should have the section with members currently in chat in a more visible location of the forum as it gives an indication of activity and some people will be more persuaded to enter chat by numbers than by topic of conversation.

I think most of what you've said is good and a step in the right direction.
I'm 100% in favour of the introduction of "The Arena", however, political debate is not the main reason for me being inactive at points. I actually enjoy it and find it to be a good conversation to have if there is nothing else to talk about.
The main reason I don't visit the site so often is because of the inconsistency in the chat room; it's either dead and awkward (e.g. in a chat room with two members I don't know/like) or has too many people in and it's difficult to follow the flow of conversation (which often erupts into utter nonsense). I only really enjoy chat when it's at a moderate level of activity and one topic is being discussed... not ten at one time.
I think it'd be interesting if someone implemented a set topic to be discussed at set times (perhaps in "The Arena") as someone previously suggested. I think it'd lead to less trash talk and attract more activity in chat.
I also really dislike the technology used for chat. It's very 2000s and is in serious need of an update. It's glitchy and not very user-friendly (for new users especially).
A good way to make chat more interesting would be to link it to a game of some kind.
I remember having a good time when one user suggested we all play cards against humanity. Perhaps integrating games like this into the chat experience would be a good idea?
I think it's a good idea to change the name of this forum to "LGBT Teen Forum and Chat". It's more inclusive and is actually more reflective of the demographics of GTF in general. There's many bisexuals on here, a few trans members, and a few lesbians. To call it "gay" is inaccurate and may even come across as unwelcoming to lesbians and transgendered people especially (something I hope isn't the aim of this site).

Pity-bot would be great, we could make it post David Duke quotes every 5 minutes and attract all those Stormfront gays.

I honnestly think gtf would be doing a lot better and recovering faster if Jacketh were to get on cam in the chatroom bi-weekly. That would help members trust mods in general but more specifically the new "admin". I personally cannot say I have had the pleasure to even see such a rare sighting as a wild jacketh being on cam in the chatroom and I believe from the bottom of my heart it would bring more popularity to the forum!

I think it would definitely make the cams seem more... accessible. Salt of the earth. x

Thanks to all applicants for the Community Ambassador role :awesome: All Chat Moderators have now lost their powers on chat and fancy colour.

They'll be announced tomorrow, but I'll send the people we've picked a PM before hand.

It'd be interesting to see which capable (or not) hands the fate of our forum is being left to.
