    3+ days and no replies? Sad.

    Anywho, wish Tea in the Garden was called Random Messages again. =D

    I do kind of miss the old name... but to me it doesn't really matter what it's called.

    Lately in that thread I've noticed quite a bit of... I don't want to say useless, but posts that don't really pertain to anybody but the poster. Little status updates like "I'm eating a sandwich" or "I like chips." (not real posts, just examples) These posts aren't very constructive toward conversation and seem to just be fillers when people are bored.

    I dunno what can/should be done about it... but I think it takes away from the fun of the thread (a thread that lies in the Fun and Games forum :P).

    That is a random thread however, if all those kinds of posts were taken away wouldnt that defeat the purpose of the thread? Its supposed to be random.

    Yes, but randomness was used to be more fun before. Now it's just "I did this, I did that" and lots of ignoring others' posts. While within the rules, it's boring as heck and hinders the thread's activity.

    You're both right. It's hard to draw the line between what's "boring random" and "super happy fun random."

    After a certain amount of time of being a regular in the thread what was considered "random" becomes the norm.

    If you want it to be fun you gotta make it fun~ (while still abiding by the rules. )

    I do suppose its a tad pointless to make this post but TiG has been rather dull whenever I lurked there.

    Lately people have been discussing more about Pokemon Team Building rather than actually conversational topics.

    Now that you mention it that's kind of true...

    I don't really mind team-building stuff and I think it's fun to talk about, but there's dozens of other places you can talk about it instead of clogging up the place where it's supposed to be fun, random chatter.

    Tea in the Garden was supposed to be the Random thread like Random Messages was, I find its not nearly as random as the older RM threads I posted in. I dont really understand how Tea in the Garden is supposed to be different to be honest.

    How so? I think it gives freedom to people to talk about what they want and to have a bit of fun. People can make random posts, provided they aren't just pure spam.

    You're free to strike up another conversation at any time if the current topic doesn't suit your tastes ^^

    TG isn't specifically a Random Messages thread though. People are free to post random messages as long as they're coherent or they contribute to the chat in some way

    If it's random then how is it supposed to contribute?
