the original thread is here:
http://www.ironworksforum.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=10&t=001902&p= ]

the previous thread is here:

Cloudy's Cafe



Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone



* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner

* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!

* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)

* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.


Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.

PLEASE NOTE



This is a modified reminder that I've posted before in reply to someone asking "can we spam the cafe". It still holds true, so I'm going to repeat it periodically for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Read the first post of the thread, it's NOT a spam zone. If you want to discuss you grades, a problem with a teacher,the weather, your neighbor's new car etc.....etc.. (real life conversations) this is the place. I don't mind a SMALL amount of spam but when the Cafe gets to be 8 pages in one day and it's all one liner pure spam, I have to ask people not to do it because most of the members who would come to talk about their day or things that they want advice or sympathy or cheers on, will not post in that atmosphere. I want you to be comfy here, but not at the expense of other members.

So the answer is NO, I don't want to see page after page of roleplay spam or one liner spamfests that could be done on msn or aim etc. because our goal is to TALK WITH one another , not fill up a cafe in five hours.

GENERAL REMINDER: Some of you may not have seen this note before so I'm posting for everyone's benefit.

If you want to have instant msg style conversations (posting rapidly back and forth with one or 2 people, making lots of posts per page in a short period of time) please take that to msn/aim/yahoo etc. Ziroc has pointed out that this sort of things is more appropriate to a chat room or instant msg program and he doesn't want to see it in the Cafe.

Thanks! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Now, on to the conversing! [img]graemlins/laugh2.gif[/img]

ROTFL! Methinks it's when pastry gets bored, Glorfy! LOL

It refers to tidal movements- water flows in to the beach/shore and at ebb is pulling away, I believe. Any maritime folks out there can correct my incredibly simple description!

So this is where we are? I was at the old Cloudys.... How many have there been?
Anyway, rained over here most of the day, and cloudy... (glares at Cloudy) but bright cloouds (doesn't glare so much)
Aaarrarararagh! De ja vu! I have posted almost the exact same words in a previous cafe! The weather around here is always the same, but I am in Britan.
Anyway, how are you lot? I'm okay, i guess, but the thought of exams in a couple of weeks is worring. I don't do well in tests, and I know that they waren't all that important right now, but still...
I didn't do to good in the ones last year. I think....
No, wait, I do NOT think. me thinking usually results in a building (potentially) blowing up.
I almost burnt down a science lab once (hehehe) [img]graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
PS Have a nice day Lord K
PPS Can i have another coffee? It's been a bad day. My art is nowhere near finished, and it has to be done in one more lession, byebye spare time.
