Rollo, you've always tried to encourage a live and let live approach in the Blast, promoting respect for all posters regardless of whether they are historians, ranking wizards, students of the game or one-player experts/fans and I think you should continue to have a house with many mansions. The only problem I can see is when chat threads don't have "CHAT" marked in the title, signposting people towards or away from them, according to their wont. I don't see why existing threads need to be merged or deleted but maybe a new lounge space which is not the creation/preserve of any one group of fans/friends could serve to enable posters to get to know each other a bit and improve the general atmosphere.
I like the :house wit hmany mansions" metaphor andy. Hopefully the solution I've come up with satisfies most or all.

Zamboni has kindly allowed us a new subforum-thank you Zamboni

I'll be in touch soon Miranda and Galadriel

Thank you It's great that you work on a solution

Re: Should we have a Blast Chat thread?

Although I don't have much time lately to participate in Seles Power Invincible!,I'm of the same oppinion of Miranda and Galadriel.Unifying them would only make some people go away and this thread has been a special place for us as it's already been said.

It's not problem renaming it,but please don't delete it.

I agree that they should be renamed to reflect their actual status though. But they are not inappropriate, they marked the long term friendship of many posters

I respected your opinion. But you are not me, who have participated in these threads for almost 10 years, come here almost every day to "talk" with my old friends, feeling warm and happy whenever I see their posts, comforting each other when we are down ......, so I don't think you would understand why I wanted to keep these threads untouched
