Live Chat room where are you guys, you dont post or you have undercover names. Maybe they are packer fans, today was the last day i will go into the live chat (most likely), it was great at the beginning of the year but it has been tak'n over by HATERS.

I know that some people go there for updates and what not but the guys that go in there to straight talk trash and are so negative really ruin it for people.

I never see these guys post during the week but they always show up on sundays to dog our team, I wonder sometimes :scratch:

I almost always go into the live chat when the game isn't on TV. Most of the people are cool (SKOL, RK, etc), and they always keep me informed on what is happening in the game.

On the other hand, there are some "fans" that are very pessimistic and negative(cough, HOLMEED, cough). But, other than that, I enjoy the live chat. It is better when you are winning however.

Yeah its great when your winning but sh*t it was only the first quarter when i left. But like you said RK, SKOL and some other guys are cool to chat with.

i was only in livechat for the last 2 minutes today, but i know a few of the guys you are probably talking about.

and i cant believe that Holmeed guy was back, he wasnt there when i got there, but from reading Neos message he must have been. that guys an ass.

who wants moderator priviledges for when I am gone? That way we can shut out the yahoos....or at minimum make em a registered user of our forums....people's attitudes are pissing me off.

Us Vikes fans either need to gang up on these A$$HOLES and run them off OR ignore them until they leave. It is not like they are really in the same room as us (literally, that is)...a chatter can easily be ignored by everyone that doesn't like that chatter just agreeing to not respond to ANYTHING that that offensive chatter says. The flip side is for EVERY Vikes fan to just go off on the offensive chatter until they get tired of being insulted...personally, that can be fun sometimes, but it definitely distracts the Vikings fans in the chat from the game.

Yeah that chat needs a moderator badly. Most of the guys there are cool though, its a minority that ruins it.

the thing about them is, when they start writing over and over, it makes me stop writing. i quit looking at the room and sometimes just leave. i dont mind a real fan saying, damn that was a stupid play, but when someone like the few in the chatroom get on their rants that seem to last for an entire quarter, i just tune the whole room out.

and id moderarte the chat, but there is no way i could gaurantee id be in there for every game. so someone with a less hectic schedule might be better.

Webby, just make it where you have to be a registered user, and login with your username, to enter chat. If you get numerous complaints about a hater in the chat, lock them out.

It probably would take a couple of us, since I'm also only there for half the games.

I would web... but I'm not on generally when the game is on so I wouldn't be very reliable!

? I don't know. I think I got there at the end of the first period. I finally found the live chat buttton.
I and several others had the game on and gave updates on almost every play. Yes, there were some damns and more harsh expressions, but I didn't see any bad mouthing the Vikes. I had a pretty good time in there actually. Maybe I came afterward when the trouble makers already left.

I wasn't the fastest typer, but the updates were flowing quite frequently.

When I went in the room, I had to give my screen name and password to enter. I thought everyone had to use their registered names. I saw some very familiar names there.

well, id be for anything that'd drive the roaches out of the room. a few of us as mods, a log in with your message board name and password, whatever it'd take to make people atleast accountable for their actions. the idiots that pretty much spam the room with doomsday anti viking comments while claiming to be viking fans are the worse. the bears and lions fans from last week were bad at halftime, but they disapeared quickly.

i dont know, i have to still go there for games when they arent on my TV. and i appreciate those of you that fill me in on whats happening. but since every week more people say they arent going to go back im afraid im not going to be able to get any updates.

Thats probably why, you got in there after i had had enough. Someone wanted to can Brian Williams because a WR caught a pass on him. Then they started telling me he's been getting smoked every game all year. If he had made an INT on that play instead of allowed a TD everyone would have been all over his balls. I just dont get it, one play and some people want to throw in the towl for the year. It's great when your winning but when your loosing its pretty bad.

WORD!, I see all the games but i go in to give updates, although sometimes i get to exited and my typing goes wacko :shaking: .

i appreciate you giving updates to those of us that dont have the game. and it'll be unfortunate if a few idiots ruin it for the rest of us.

I thought it was pretty good today :) A couple of us suggested that holmeed leave and he did. After that is was really a lot of fun. If someone is annoying you just use the ignore option and you won't see any of their posts :) A moderator or two wouldn't be a bad idea as long as they aren't heavy handed about it. A little trash talk can be fun as long as it doesn't get into personal attacks. Holmeed on the other hand was just annoying. LOL I told him to buy a cheese hat and find a packer chat and he left. :)

The chat is a great thing however for those of us that don't get many Vikes games in our area. There aren't a lot of Vikes fans in my area so its like having the guys over to watch the game. :thumbleft: The trick is not to be too thin skinned when in the chat and not take it too seriously. And try to be respectful of others. :) By the way, its not the chat on the forum page above. You have to access it from the main PurplePride page.

maybe we will do "featured moderator of the week" .. LOL... I would appreciate the help though.

i always just clicked the link on the message boards to get to chat, i never went to the main page. so it always worked as far as i could tell.

but anyways, i'll be a guest mod anytime im available, and i agree with RK, no heavy handed stuff. but theres people that come in there pretending to be vikes fans that just bash the vikes, and it just pisses everyone off. those are the ones to give a warning or two, then boot them.

Cool I was going to suggest it to you. I haven't tried that link since the first time a few weeks ago.

i think they are, i never took the link on the main page, i always took the one on the mesage boards. and i seemed to be in the same room as you guys. i've been taking the link on the forums for weeks, was i going to a diffrent place than the main page?

Webby, would it be possible to show who is in the chat at the top of every forum page (as well as the home page)...that way anytime one of us in in the chat, others can easily see that and join in without having to go through the process of going through the steps of signing into the chat room just to check...also, maybe there should be more chat rooms (if that isn't too hard or cost prohibitive)...a separate one for trash talking so that the main one (Viking Chat for Viking Fan Forum can be used for game updates on the day of the game). Just curious...I would be happy to share more ideas as they come to me if you are interested!

The link above now goes to the same chat (flash chat) as the home page does. It used to go to a realplayer supported chat that was probably a plugin for this particular forum. Webby changed the link, Also you can see who is in the chat without logging on to it from the link on the log in page. You will note there are two rooms available. Just click the link above and you will see what I mean. If you have never used a chat before you might want to log on to it and check it out. There are lots of options. If you log on just click the ? on the bottom of the chat field and it will explain how to use the chat and customize it. :)
