end ee chats and au/eu/us chats, tbh.

they only give an 'illusion' of activity and forum life. force people to actually post in actual threads discussing an actual topic again.

these forums have lost all focus and are no longer even 'discussion boards', it's more like a NON-instant messaging platform.

so many trite, banal conversations that nobody wants to scroll through... and why visit for that? petty habit, nothing more.
i agree.  and for me to agree with him is like.......  so, this has to be the correct answer.

Obviously people use bf2s for different purposes.

the fact you want to "force" people to other thread shows how inconsiderate you are to the life around you. true character. this applies to ken aswell. Why bother having the members at all? Jesus, maybe cause you share a friendship with any of them?

it seems to me the only people that want this shit closed show sheltered characteristics.

or maybe the sheltered ones feel the need to be hidden away in their little corner?

Duplicate thread with the same purpose and content as another one should be closed.

Extensive special treatment leads to a sense of entitlement.

OrangeHound should've just made his executive decision, which he seemed ready to when posting this since it seems like the mods can't agree and will keep overruling each other.

If people are going to leave over something this ridiculous... well... good riddance.

I'm going to make a "What do Jamaican bf2s.com users look like thread" and if that one gets closed, I'm going to leave.
I'm going to make a new Respond by Picture thread but for Europeans only (even though non-Europeans will post in it too) and if that one gets closed, I'm going to leave.
I'm going to make my own Open Tech thread but for Americans only (even though non-Americans will post in it too), and if that one gets closed, I'm going to leave.

It doesn't make sense. Duplicate threads are closed and posters are told to search or use the designated thread. The AU Chat is exactly the same as the EE Chat, except the EE Chat is more broad and all-inclusive, rendering the AU Chat one pointless. It's not like something is preventing Australians from posting in EE Chat with everyone else.

I seriously cannot comprehend a single logical reason for the special AU Chat thread to remain open. (Insert comment about sticking head up one's own ass)
Get off the high horse and get over your sense of entitlement.

Sense of entitlement? What?

Duplicate Threads?

The first one was closed cause it was slowing down the nets. Therefore, there is reason for a second one.

BF2s AU Chats, as i've stated before, is simply a medium for communication between one centralised group. Why is it your problem anyway? You never use it, but you're happy to close it.

the AU chat thread was open because of the sheer amount of posts in the thread.  Now that the original thread was closed, they don't need their own 'chat' thread.  It was originally supposed to be a thread for their server - it outgrew that purpose and simply became a meeting point for the aussie members - then it outgrew that and became just another chat thread that everyone was posting in.  Since the original was closed I really see no point in creating another one.

Feel free to leave any comments ...
IMO, a single chat thread would be garbled beyond comprehension. I think it's a good idea to keep them in their own sections. Otherwise, try tracking tech stuff through EE chat.

I think the AU chats was large and frequented enough to deserve a reboot.

Once again, I am a pioneer and ahead of the time.

I suggested ending EE chat months ago. Like 3 according to the time stamp.

But there's no AU Tech Chat. EE Chat is for general chatter. AU Chat consists of general chatter. Why is there a special EE Chat thread for a certain part of the world? It doesn't make sense.

If the mods keep the AU Chat 2 thread open, that's showing preferential treatment, and I can't handle that, so I'm going to leave.

I suppose noone else has realised the irony of having a chat thread (this one) about the validity of a chat thead.

Epic fail.
