    Also, maybe some more variety of large condoms (I know there isn't much out there anyway) and also maybe make it avalible to buy some in bulk as it is for regular condoms.

    There is some other sites that sell large condoms in bulk but I always use LH and I tend not to trust other sites and it's near to impossible to get anything in my area so it would be much appericated.

    What do peeps think 'bout a thread to remind that they're invisible? For inst. Easy Tiger & violeteyes R both online since they're posting but dont appear on my Who's Online list. (Yes I no that sometimes peeps want to be invisible but they may not realise that they're not visible)

    I don't really see the point.. Wouldn't you just go online if you wanted people to know you were on?

    Maybe I understood wrong, could you elaborate?

    There's a glitch in the chat facility: it shows u online and available even if ur not! And if u go invisible during 1 login session & dont go back to available or bust b4 u logoff, u will still b invisible when u log back in!

    Oooh I see, I did misunderstand

    It's a good idea, as long as it stayed active.

    Thank you for elaborating

    But might such a thread make people feel uncomfortable if they were being deliberately invisible and then there was a thread telling everyone that? I do understand what you're meaning though, but I imagine most regular forum users are aware of the glitch, so if they're 'invisible' there's a reason for it?

    Not sure really, but I know I often log on quickly to have a quick nosey but don't have time to chat so make myself invisible, however if I actively want to chat then I just click available when I log in, regardless of what I may or may not have been last time I was here.

    Perhaps what is needed is just a general chat sticky perhaps that tells people of the little glitches so once aware of the foibles they can make the decision themselves?

    Meh, have waffled a load of shite now with no real point.... ignore me.... lol

    They simply ignore the thread. I'm really talking 'bout peeps who spent a considerable time online posting : if they r doing this, its pretty obvious that they dont realise they r invisible!

    Not always. I'll sometimes go trough spates of posting in about forty bajillionty threads, but not actually feel like talking to anyone, so I'd be invisible on purpose.

    I like being able to keep your status from the last session, because this way I can be invisible by default and have to 'opt in' if I fancy chatting, instead of being pounced on as soon as I open the page before I can switch it off and then feeling obligued to keep talking (or mean for telling them to naff off cause I'm not up for talking there and then).

    There's been several times people have prodded people in threads when theyve just posted and not appeared on the other person's list. I think that's about the limit of where it should be needed, as even that can seem a bit aggressive and accusatory: after all, if I'm in a sour mood and don't want to talk, then I'm hardly going to be ok with being 'called out' on it so publicly. In the flow of a thread, it can be ignored, but in its own separate thread, it can appear to be more deliberate when you paint a big arrow over the head of the evil non-chatter than if it's slipped naturally into a conversation/thread, which could get folks' backs up more.

    I don't know what u mean by called out on it! If u 've been online a considerable time & posting a lot, then surely it is polite behaviour 2 ask if u realise that u r invisible. The problem in prodding in threads is:

    a) u will b going off topic

    and

    b) the person concerned may not read the thread but if they r wondering y no1's chatting to 'em they try the specialised thread to c if they r visible

    I myself have gone online without wanting to chat 2 any1 but just posting. If some1 points this out, I either say yes or ignore it! & I dont regard myself as an evil nonchatter 4 doing so!

    Sorry to go on a bit but u really rang my bell

    I don't think it's beneficial to remind specific people if they're posting and not online in a thread. Mainly, people who've been here a while know they could be invisible. It might be useful having something that reminds people they ARE offline, but that should be automated (like a pop up when you log in) and not something users remind others off (unless it's maybe a polite nudge in like the off topic thread). Equally, it's not exactly difficult to notice being offline. If someone wants conversation they would look at the list, see they're offline, and change it.

    Surely if 'they' were wondering why no-one was chatting to them, they might think to just click on the available button & see what happens? Given they were able to put themselves as invisible in the first place?

    I agree wih BB, I often post but have no wish to chat, nor do I want to be reminded, gently or otherwise, that I am not available for chat.... If I want to chat, I'll click available....

    I agree that it would be better if people were reminded automatically when they log on. However, when is such a thing going 2 happen? We have been promised an edit facility by Lh but I haven't seen hair or hide of it! I am proposing this as an interim measure which can b done by the forum users. btw what list can peeps look at 2 see if they r offline? If u read my reply to EM, u'll see that there isn't!

    Well, the list of "Who's Online". Next to the figure is a dot that signifies your status. Green is online - grey is not. I'm sure they've stated reasons for not having an edit function (such as this being a forum that could potentially attract people who think it's an easy way to pick people up and they could make unacceptable posts then edit them prior to a moderator seeing.)

    I just don't understand why it's such a big deal if someone isn't online to chat?

    Just pop into the random chatter thread if you want chit chat and as has been said most people know about the apparent "glitch".

    I don't think it is a glitch, just an alternative to the "offline" option since clicking offline *is* glitchy and will "unstick" if you open a new tab.

    I don't think such a thread is a good idea. Some people just don't want to be bothered so why bother them in public?

    What about a not in the mood thread? Where you can post to say your simply not in the mood for talking.

    Seems a bit redundant... That's the whole point in being offline, surely?! And if you're online and don't want chat it's easy enough to say

    Good point but it is my belief that these debates could last a long time if we dont sort something out soon.

    As much as I see the point, if someone is posting and obviously online, you can just reply to their post and say "you on chat?" ... No?

    They can either say "oh yeah! I'm accidentally offline" or "nah, not really in a social mood"...
