    Currently doesn't have any strict rules. It's basically our Twitter.

    Though interestingly it does predate Twitter. The original Currently thread (of which this is the fourth incarnation) was created in 2001. An idea ahead of its time.

    now i feel very awkward. i don't know how to respond. i'm used to tip toeing into here, in the middle of the night [my regular hours being 1400 to 0600 CST, US][1900 to 1100 GMT] and posting things all alone, having the floor, as far as i know, all to myself, and now ..... it's absolutely apparent when i'm online. i feel very exposed.

    might as well bring back chat, i've seen me, Bluey, Abe and FeeBee with up to 3 guests and up to 6 'bots' at certain moments, on this 'eve.

    It's always been fairly easy to access who's online. Also, while I don't agree with the removal of chat whatsoever, I can promise you that this isn't the argument which will get it out back up.

    If you go to the Privacy section of your profile there are lots of options to choose what people can and cannot see, including your Online status and activity.

    If you only want to post at a time when others aren't around... I can't really help you there! It's not really how a forum works...

    i understand, i was spoiled to the old ways. i just feel like i'm cheating if i ignore people, or pretend i'm not online when i am. i've invented certain rules and superstitions for myself.

    currently noticing that someone is looking at my profile, and realizing that such incidents should be reported.

    yes. i am male, technically. it was a really hard choice, cause i really like females. male seemed the best way to go. unless being female, gave me better odds at touching a female.

    i don't know anymore. [i once saw a suicide emoticon and was just trying to find it - found, but don't know how to post it, i saved from ... [him]].

    Currently hoping that someone can get my paws moving again - I feel like I'm stuck in the cargo hold. I miss my moving paws.

    I miss them too. We should start a campaign to have them reinstated.

    I also tried a moving Homero Simpson gif and he was standing still so I don't think it's a problem with your cute paws! :-D
