The Sonic Chatroom
« on: December 10, 2008, 01:34:17 PM »
We all know there are chatrooms here. But only about a 1/10th of the site's members are there. I suppose none of the others know how to get to it, hook up to it, or something that.

I ANNOUNCE TO ALLLL SONIC CENTER MEMBERS! Come to the Chatroom, don't just post on the forums or only compete and never are in the forums. 30% of the members here total are like that, 30% do both Compete and Forumate, 20% sign up once and are never seen again or here for a few months then are never seen again, 10% of the members are in the chatroom. 10% are in all 3.

SO what do you think about this? What can we do to invite other members to the chatroom? Members can just sign up for the chatroom at least if they are signing up once and never seen again, or the forum. It saddens me that this is like the mall. You see people there, and most you never see again for almost your whole life. The only ones you see again are the employees usually.

So I wonder what can happen if more members sign in to the chatroom and like fill it up.

Agreed.

And if it lags out on you every 6 seconds (like mine), then use a Firefox addon called ChatZilla. (add-on search it). And to get into the TSC Chatroom from there, type:
irc://204.11.32.123/soniccenter
in the adress bar. (It opens in a new window)

Then it'll act perfectly normal, using the nick you've specified for ChatZilla instead of asking each time. (You still will need to identify it, though)

My computer fails because I have Vista and IRC or most Java applications lags horribly or doesn't even work. And i'm not much of the social type. I'm too self contious to try it either. So yeah. You'll probably not see much of me. =(

Trust me, I've been a total idiot, yelled at everyone, attacked people on personal levels, BS'd, redeemed myself, competed, Mafia'd, been rickroll'd, praised, b&...

But because I am a good person most of the time, and I can now prove/replicate my times if asked (in addition to being an awesome player ^_^), the people here still accept me...  It's thanks to the people here that I remain ever vigilant in my view of the Gamer Spirit!

I loves me some TSC...  and honestly, regardless of who you are, as long as you're yourself (and you're legit on the boards and not an intentional troll), then TSC will accept you...

LONG LIVE TSC!

come on in anyway just to test the waters.  you might like it and may end up having a better time here now that you know more people.

besides, any past social problems that may have existed through the forums or another site and forgotten pretty fast by everyone...except me as I remember everything o_o

I've been in the chatroom nearly every day for the past year and a half. Save for a) when I was banned for revealing lucario was in brawl (>_>) b) vacations c) unable to use my comp otherwise.

It is an awesome place and a good place to sit around and talk when I have little else to do~

Also a bunch of popular TSC fads originated (or at least, spread) on the chat. Mafia I think, iSketch (not sure if that counts), LandGrab, Magic, Stef's "Songs as Answers"...

Speaking of which I demand we play another round of SaA at some point. Maybe when the people with decent answers all show up again and are willing (stef, genus, mike, some other folks. I actually care now too because I have real songs with actual names besides "Theme of" and such.)

Up until my second router broke, I was in the chat pretty much every day.  After that, since I enjoy being online with my 360, I stopped showing up.  I stopped in a couple times (the second time, unnoticed, despite an "I has returned" opening line when others actually were present to see it [especially PPA, who says "Hi" to everyone who comes in 90% of the time).  For the past couple weeks, I've been popping in whenever possible since I had to send my 360 in for repairs (or, in this case, replacement).  I might occasionally pop in again, but the chances will be even less since I have to re-download all my content to be able to play them offline (and with over 220 Rock Band songs and a few Live Arcade games, it'll be a very long time before I get around to everything).

Wait, do you have to pay to re-download said content? If so it's bollocks, if not MS did -something- right.

Re-downloading any content is completely free.  I'm glad it is, or I'd have to blow at least 15k points to get everything back.

Yes, and his favourite word proves that, I suppose? Also this. And this.
Hay guiz, I made a table showing how many points each game tracked by TSC is worth. You should go see it.
Also v2.0 of my TSC calculator is available to use. You should totally use it.

The ones who contribute the most to the chat are generally the ones who haven't competed or have retired/become sick of it.

14 replies out of 1 day I had posted this.

I suppose if people actually read this topic, they might be more inclined to get into the chatroom instead of just filling up the server by signing up once and not returning ever. I suppose that many members signing up is hard on the server.

Ya! Get yer butt in thee chatroom! You are punished, now you must go into the chatroom for the rest of your days! -"Said by the one who was banned from the chatroom at one time"

JK! It is your free will to get in if you want, but just go in if you never had seen people at all. Get to know the members here better. Don't be so shy. Just visit and see how ya like it. I guarantee it is fun in there.

I'm pretty sure that was 92%

But seriously, it's a great place.  I probably wouldn't be here past the first time I 0p-ed Advance 3 times if it weren't for the chat.  And it's fun.

Oh? Let's see...
Let's look at the 17 most active people on the chatroom, along with the date they last submitted a stat:
1. Gerbil - insert :Pyramid here08/09/08
2. Stefan - a.k.a. the typo master!15/08/08
3. Rolken - ...he competes?...owait I guess so:01/03/08
4. RR - wants you to email him a dreamcast!08/12/08
5. "n" - call him that; he insists you do so.08/12/08
6. DsS - :D D: :D12/12/08
7. Sondow - does standard preschool business every morning?...07/12/08
8. PPA - is a furry!27/08/08
9. Achlys - his life is end \(^o^)/17/08/08
10. MK - is a spic...?06/12/08
11. Quartz - needs to pay attention! >_>16/09/08
12. genus - often wins arguments by default16/01/08
13. mike - is not retired yet?!06/08/08
14. SJ - (shit!)01/12/08
15. SkyL - AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH09/12/08
16. bertin - insert random comment here11/12/08
17. Cherry - would rather have a tiger :(comedy 31/12/69 option

From what I see, out of the top 17 chatters, 16 have submitted stuff this year, and 8 have submitted stuff this month. So...I don't know where you're getting such silly ideas... >_>

For those of you who are wondering why I made the cutoff at a seemingly arbitrary value, note that there is a rather large gap between the number of lines cherry has spoken and the number of lines upth (at #18) has spoken.

We could always just remove access to the forums and require that all communication be through the chatroom. Just a thought.

Also the above guarantee is not guaranteed, especially if you visit while everyone is at lolschool or lolwork, or is lolslp. Just because there are 30 people in the chatroom doesn't mean that there's 30 people active.

But seriously, it's a great place.  I probably wouldn't be here past the first time I 0p-ed Advance 3 times if it weren't for the chat.  And it's fun.
I'm sure I've mentioned this in chat more than once, but my original intent was to submit stats once and never come back.Why do you all keep me here >_>If I hadn't joined the chatroom I probably would have left here by the end of 2006.

There's a chatroom?

*flyby shot
Yeah I was surprised too :O

Note: If there's a spelling mistake or a wrong word somewhere in the post, blame the fact that I got logged off before I could finish posting and had to retype a good deal of it.

I think it is important to point out that submitting one stat in the span of a year does not constitute activity, int he slightest. I am tired of competition, but I have submitted a stat int he last few months. That doesn't mean I actively compete; I got a single stat in a spur of the moment playing frenzy.

Also, one stat a month is hardly people who compete on a regular basis. I think it summarily proves OSG's point that the most active are the least likely to be actively competing.
