Default How do you like to communicate with members?

ChatBox? Visitor Messages? Private Messages? Social Groups? Through a specific thread?

Forum activity, overall, is down but the forum is still somehow alive (and not the life-support type of alive!). I'm usually seen on the ChatBox these days, but in the past I enjoyed posting on Santa Destroy and usually hoped for some silly post on one of my Social Groups.

Personally, I try to make an effort to interact with some other members who either don't post often or do Chat by sending visitor messages.

Anyone feel like they've grown out of using the forum to chat with others? Like using other messaging devices?

Since I don't post much of the forum and have used this this site as mostly a site to talk, I mainly stick with chat. Nobody sends me visitor messages that much :'(

Personally I send visitor messages but it's mostly through IMs on Skype. I have added a handful of people from here on Skype and we use that to communicate.

I use the forums, visitor messages, the ChatBox, the forum games and Skype.

Speaking of the state of the forums, I'm still bothered by the community split (ChatBox | forum games), but there's nothing I can do about it. I've already made a thread about that.

I very frequently chat with a few members by sending visitor messages, private messages and sometimes on Skype. I'll pretty much chat with anyone who sends me a VM or PM.

I rarely post these days, it's almost hard for me to believe I used to post around 20-40 times a day back in early to mid 2011.

Chatbox. The threads are like extended chatbox posts now because it's mostly the same people. I also like chatting over the mic with Snail in BF4.

Obviously I use chat often. Don't really PM or VM much unless responding to others. I have a more private means to converse with the majority of forum users I frequently talk to, be it through Steam, Skype, or other services. I don't really consider those to be a replacement for anything, though, as they're generally the sort of one-on-one conversations I wouldn't have had otherwise.

I used to use visitor messages and private messages all the time when I was more active on the forum. These days, I've been mostly keeping in touch with people through other networks, like Facebook and Twitter, since the activity has slowed down so much here.

Admittedly, I do miss using the forum more for more personal interactions.

Chatbox and Skype are my preferred ways to get in touch, occasionally threads and VM.

Also letter pidgeons.

I use a Ouija Board. JK.


I don't really talk to anyone here since I don't really know anyone here that well.

I am on the Chatbox, but I am not sure what to do most of the time, so I just type random stuff. I am kinda shy when it comes to the chatbox.

I would use skype if i had anyone to talk to.

I just use the visitor message method. Tried the chatbox a number of times but its hard to have a convo.

In the past I used other methods such as threads and the predecessor to last post wins, but now I'm mostly chatbox and I wouldn't have it any other way.
