Hi Alkis
There's no secret to it. Everyone here has a grown up mentality. Iv'e personally seen you picked on at other forums about your new game.
Speaking of which , how's that game coming along ? Looking forward to playing it.

Ta Ta for now.

I have been here almost two years and only once in that time have I seen any poster get an "attitude" when he didn't get the answer he thought he should have gotten. Even his nastiness was dealt with by the mods nicely, calmly and professionally. I was very impressed.

Thank you all for your posts and welcomes. It looks like you're doing a great job here.
Cathy, the game is coming along just fine. I will have some important announcements soon, but I don't want to jinx them before I get some contracts signed.
The people who picked on me in other forums about my game are a very small minority compared to the ones who liked it. And again, the percentage of the people who were *rude* to me as opposed to just saying they didn't like it (which is acceptable) was even smaller.
But as a wise man said once: "999 people love your creation and the 1000th person hates it, and the only thing you can think about it is the 1000th person".

Hey alkis21, the reason we are so happy and civilised here is because we don't set out to hurt anyone, we are always there for each other if any of us needs a shoulder to cry on. We are NOT gobby brats who set out to deliberatley cause arguments - we are just a big, happy gameboomer family.

And I would like to say a big to you!!!

Diana...please explain "gobby brats" to me. From the way it sounds, it may need to be in an email to me.
Love learning new phrases from members over the pond.

Hope that clears it up for you?????

Hi Alkis smile

Most of the GameBoomers are native English. For me (and you), English is the second language.
But it doesn't make any difference to this "family" what language you speak or what country you're from. They are so warm-hearted!
(And it is great to get compliments on your English.)

Ok thanks for the answers.. I've got a couple of more questions if you don't mind:

1)Is it just my impression or are most members here female?
2)Why isn't there an option for private messages in the forum? Is it a deliberate choice?

Hi Alkis, There are lots of males on the site. Look in the Garden or in RPG or Discussions. That is where most of them are (it seems). In Mixed Bags there is probably a greater number of females but it really depends on what the topic is.

As far as the PM feature, I'm not sure if it's an option on the board. I'll wait for an admin to answer that.

I believe that we do have more female members but we do have a large male membership. They usually post more at other forums and I do notice that our silent members (non or rare posters) are mostly males though (those that I can distinguish by name).
lol
As for the PM - yes it is our choice. Aside for the bandwidth usage, the purpose of PM for forum business can be done by posting or e-mails.
