We discussed this a bit in an earlier somewhere in the last 1000 replies, and we had heard that Lovetown was a ghost town.
I think there are a number of reasons why this would be true.

1. Singles would rather be fooled into hooking up, so if you tell them it's a place to meet other singles, they sort of wallflower and sit in a corner. They will watch, but seldom will they participate.

2. The new album is coming out, and we are excited, and flirtateous. I don't know if Lovetown would have sunk if it had an album and tour to attract new people.

3. It's a bar setting, not a hookup joint. Yes, we flirt, and share pictures, and stories, but it's hung together by our appreciation of having a place to go, not a place to meet our spouses. We all know that it's a long shot that we'll even meet each other, much less get married one day, so removing that expectation from the table allows everyone to relax and just be there chatty selves.

4. It won't just be for singles. It's for everyone that wants to just have a mock-drink on us, and spill what's going on. It isn't a married or single thing.

5. So far, it's been very organic! We haven't forced it, people just keep showing up. Some leave, and some stay, and hopefully it will remain hopping.

We are really in no position to demand anything, but I do offer a proposition. If we fill up 3 more 500 posts over the next several weeks, wouldn't it make sense to put walls up permanently?

Thanks for checking in with us and sharing a drink! Next time you can dance too!

Good thing you're here. The bar is yours, don't know where everyone went. I know that it's time for me to go home. I'll catch up with everyone later.

Starsgoblue and Digsy might be around. Stars is very excited about her new U2 IPOD.

Thanks!

The thing is, really, this is a message board. This isnt a chat room. We have a chat room as well, perhaps people should probably use it more often, I dont know. But there was a time when none of these kinds of threads were even allowed... the chit chatting back and forth stuff. We have had Randomdodomdm for a very long time and that thread has served the purpose of chit chatting and has been allowed to go on.

Now we have Testje, this thread, one in PLEBAns etc... The fact that this is a 'bar'.. well you can make any thread into a bar, it all comes down to the content of the posts.

Basically, creating a forum just for chit chatting really isnt serving a productive purpose on a message board, and I'm sure Elvis would agree, BUT you are more than welcome to start a thread in Dont Expect, Suggest and see what he says
