mod note: for further info on this topic see https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....chat-room/

Based off the majority negative response, I'll end this.

The disconnect between the forum poll and user response is quite interesting.

Which is why this is off the forum and anyone can opt-in.

I'm just not at all keen on things that encourage members away from the forum. Like you said, @Starr Shine?, your back-up forum was set up for use in emergency situations, while this is - to my mind - something to draw members away from the forum. After all, I'm sure you'd be disappointed if it received the level of use that the back-up forum.

If some members want a more private setting, that is up to them, but I worry it will create a group who spend more time there than here. I have never been a fan of cliques.

I don't get the point in doing it private.
You could create a kind of chat room for more instant and massive comunication.

I see what you mean, didn't think of that. I'll put a link in the op.

Yet our Pink Floyd subforum was made primarily to open the discussion on the band, as the singular Pink Floyd thread on this forum does not have subsections to discuss different memebers, albums, and other things. We also made one for the Beach Boys , both of which want as many fans talking as possible. 

And don't worry. We spend way more time on Beatles Bible than on either of those.

But neither of those are "Beatles Bible" offshoots, @sir walter raleigh. You call the Pink Floyd a subforum. It isn't. It is a Pink Floyd forum set up by people who use this site. It is separate from this site. It is not called the "Unofficial Beatles Bible Pink Floyd Forum". This is being put forward as an, albeit unofficial, offshoot of the Beatles Bible.

I agree with RN. Call it something else. Don't use the name Beatles Bible for this project. @Joe

I like this idea, it lets us do things like show ourselves to the other BBers without the whole world seeing, as well as letting us hear each other. Hell, just thinking about it makes me want to do some scheduled guitar lessons using this thing.

I would think it would need to be called a different name due to the similarities with here. You can't simply shove in "unofficial" into the title otherwise a whole load of other unofficial sites and products would be out there.

As for being active on it, I'm busy enough on here and have made my views clear before so will remain opting out. I hope it's successful, however.

Discord name changed! It is probably a better idea to move this to Pimp Your Stuff.

Google has already grabbed posts. Moving would cause broken links.

Darn. Maybe lock and I can repost in the appropriate area? Sorry, I think I was a bit over eager on this.

I think it fits better here, why would you want to repost it. Great site by the way, I decided to start a non-Beatles baker's dozen on it because Joe would get pissed off if we did it on this site.

@Starr Shine? something's wrong with my account. I can write things but when the page refreshes it doesn't save what I wrote and something as simple as x-ing out of that tab logs me off as well as throws out all of the things that I wrote.

Not to be ugly about it, but, actually, I don't think talk about the other site should be on this forum anymore. If you are having trouble with the other site, PM someone for help.

Something I will not tolerate is for some conversation or joke to be going on over there and then it be brought over here as an "inside" joke that the rest of us will not understand.

If you don't want that, then locking this thread would make the most logical sense.

I think locking this thread would be the best course of action. The poll results were quite different from the forum response.
