Hello new members! ^^

We're very glad to see that you registered on our board, and hope that you will enjoy many features on our board including the Comments section of members' Profile pages! It is a nice way to say hello to other members and making new friends on our board! biggrin.gif

However... it came to our attention that many of our members like the Comments section so much that it's often regularly used as a chat box for on-going conversations between two members. It is nice that we have many such friendships growing on our board, except the problem is that the Comments section was not exactly designed to be used as a tool for on-going chat conversations between two people. ^^ For some members with this type of use, the Comments section is "overused" to the point of carrying hundreds of pages of comments on the Profile page, and it seems this feature may be starting to show the strain because of this. sad.gif We don't want this to get to the point of us being forced to disabling this feature for everyone.


Therefore, we ask our members to try this way instead:

* If you are making a new comment to a member who is new to you or relatively unknown to you, that is fine and you can make such comment on the Comments section of that member's Profile, and then you and the member can make a few exchanges of comments between you two, and that would be fine as well.
However, after the casual initial rounds of exchanges, if you have further conversations, please try to MOVE ON to PM for the rest of conversations.

* If you are making a comment to a member whom you know already, and if the comment is not intended as the start of a chat, then that is fine and you can make such comment in the Comments section of that member's Profile, and then you and the member can make a few exchanges of comments between you two, and that would be fine as well.
However, after the initial rounds of exchanges, if you have further conversations, please try to MOVE ON to PM for the rest of conversations.

* If you are making a comment to a member whom you know already, and if the comment is intended as the start of a chat such as "hey, how are doing today?" etc., or you're answering to such initial comment made by the other party, then please do NOT make such comment in the Comments section of the member's Profile, and instead, please SEND PM to that member and carry on your chat on PM.

We have the PM system designed exactly for this kind of personal exchange of messages so that it would not stain our overall systems, and we ask our members' cooperation by utilizing our PM system for the on-going exchange of messages between two members.


Thank you!! biggrin.gif
