In my opinion there should be an off-topic forum, so we could talk not only about acne and our problems. We could talk about movies, games, music, books and everything else.

Do you think this is good idea? or not? Post your opinion amused.gif

Maybe the moderators have changed the lounge setting back to how it was before the site update..? - it used to only be available to 'veteran members' but I think they were trialing it being available to all members for a little while. But just going by your member status as being 'junior' and that you can't see the lounge forum (should be the last forum you can see - it's under an 'other forums' heading) and that I can see it and my status is 'veteran' I'm guessing they must have changed it back.

As was said earlier it is the Lounge and it already exists. Strange that you can't see it.

 

But quite frankly I wouldn't expect too much from it. It's a place where the "hardcore" members prefer to see a certain atmosphere which is zany and nonsensical but that atmosphere usually isn't quite there. It's a pretty dead place where e.g. new people aren't "included" as fast unless you happen to be quite like a lot of hardcore members who, like I said, have a certain personality where they have a certain sense of humor and so forth. They often also score high on IQ tests...

 

So anyway... You'll find it to be mostly cold and dead. Most threads have one or two replies and then they die. And these replies are likely kind of pointless or odd. That's not to say that it's not a fun place to be sometimes though. Or that it never has been (a fun place to visit). When it was more active I used to spend quite some time there and I actually befriended a member or two. But it (i.e. the Lounge) has certain sides which I never liked and like I said...the place is very dead now.

It appears the entire lounge was hidden from ALL members, except veterans. Despite the settings being changed to allow members to post, there was a higher setting, that prevented members from seeing it. So that's what? 99% of the entire acne.org? 

 

I've fixed the setting, please confirm you can now see it.

 

Perhaps there will be much more activity there now, once members realise it exists.
