Maybe that way those two would get to know each other a little better and we could establish a more friendly atmosphere instead of the chaotic college bar scene it is now.
    That sounds like a really fun idea.

    That's sort of the classic way it works. My guess is it will sort of straighten itself out over the next few weeks.

    The whole point of a game thread is to talk about the game. Only allow two people in and the game thread becomes pointless.

    Wow - I read this thread this morning and it was barely over a page. Now we're at 11+.

    Good thread, though...obviously.

    That's an excellent point and one that many of us don't think enough about.

    We've been down that road before. It created a mess of complaints.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    You had to go and bring that up didn't you? Other people thought I was a genius until this post...

    You're right, if you only have two people in the game thread, it more or less just becomes an observation thread...more for people that just want to follow along and can't watch or listen through some other media, rather than those that want to contribute.

    I just figured it'd be a good way to develop a friendly atmosphere and allow for 2 people each night to show off their talent, humor, and sarcasm, of lack thereof, in special way.

    I'm going to try to get into Chat tonight. I haven't been in there yet this year and was rarely in it last year. I'd like to see if it's a good way to enjoy the game. As long as people like WilyMo leave me alone, it should be enjoyable...

There are times where maybe someone deserves a warning, they're teetering on going over the line, but I don't want to hammer their points for it. The ability to say "Hey, watch it" would come in handy sometimes. I think there would be more self-policing by the members if they had the ability to send a message without stripping points from someone.
    Interesting idea. I like it very much. I've PMed some new people instead of negging them. I'd like the option you mention above. I've PMed them to edit out "masked profanity" or clean up a joke just so they won't get ganged up on.
