hello?
 
hi
 
just joined.... and posted my first question
 
i've seen it
it's interesting and i'm thinking about a good answer
may i ask if the rants are about germany?
 
not as yet, no
 
just asking ;) i've seen this kind of behaviour in some german forums here too
 
12:41 AM
i have a 2nd question conjuring...
something along the lines of "How to deal with friends who consistently test the rules"
does this sound like a reasonable question?
 
friends because you know them and they're doing this in a public community
 
yes
 
sounds interesting, i would suggest to post it
 
done!
I expanded on it to include rule-testing family members
Hi @Braiam
Hi @Undo
 
12:59 AM
mm... could you please not ping random users
 
um, i was just saying 'hi'
 
When you ping someone, make sure it's something important
 
wow...
 
oh
now it's gone
 
sorry for saying "hi"
 
1:09 AM
the ping was the problem not the "hi"
this
 
that
Also this. @jwacalex Pinging happens again and again. Quite annoying. (for future users, I edited this message a bunch of times, you can tell by the pencil icon on the right of this)
 
this and that
 
clap
i should nominate you for the user of the day award.
 
i nominate myself too.
Oh wait, that doesn't make sense.

@Omen welcome
@bjb568 funny story, I moved messages from one room to another as an archival thing the other day...
yeah, apparently every single ping in the moved messages got refired
including the superpings
so suddenly about 15 people came running to a normally almost dead chatroom...
oops
@Omen and yeah, if you have a topic of discussion you want to cover with someone or a point to share, pinging is fine, but generally just pinging to say hi is frowned upon as there isn't actually anything for them to respond to or interact with
if you have a question for them specifically, pinging is fine
it's just a courtesy thing that kind of goes with the culture of SE chat. You'll get used to it
but alas, it is my sleepy time

okay okay, I have been told by 3-4 people now, no more please (I am not an idiot, contrary to the seeming consensus), i have got the point, okay? Also, it should be noted I have seen different in many other rooms.
I am not goign to bother with this chat room at all.

@AJHenderson ow
That sounds like a bug to me, to be honest
But pinging on edit is a bit wierd too

Q: How to deal with real-life friend or family members who consistently test the rules?

OmenA forum that I participate in is run by a friend of mine. There are 3 other friends that we know from real-life who are members of the forum. One particular friend persistently tests the rules, his actions just reach the brink of being a rule-violation before he backs off. Needless to say, thi...
