I often sit quietly in a chat room and chat to a group of friends within buzz. We usuallly use the BBB room. None of us are interested in playing bingo or joining the quizzes. Unfortunately they are advertised in all rooms and can be very annoying. If new people come into the room we tell them if bingo or a quiz is on and direct them to the correct room. The posters should only be on the home page in my opinion. Please also note that in the Rules in Spare Room number 4 states "4. No soliciting or advertising is permitted in chatrooms". If this rule is correct then why are the posters permitted. Is it one rule of some and another rule for others?

I suspect that refers to advertising from external sources. I'm pretty sure that this site is permitted to promote its own activities in house.

Posters in the Chat rooms promoting a Quiz that is taking place in the Chat rooms is not 'advertising'
It is promoting an upcoming event to inform chatters.
Happy to help.

Rips - depends what time of day your in the rooms. Usually Lounge has people in during the morning and evening - also Happy room is pretty full most evenings as well as times when Quiz and bingo takes place. Others find little niches for themselves and tend to stay there. I would urge you to give it another try - you would always be made welcome in the Happy room of an evening.
