    Do not worry Miranda. I can assure you, you are not missing anything by not being able to see the coffee lounge. For about the last year or so, it has been no different than the regular forum.

    Same type of threads, same types of discussion. It has kinda picked up the nickname as the tea sofa for how mild it has become.

    Rubbish! Don't listen to him Miranda. It's great! It's amazing! You have no idea of what goes on in there. You wouldn't, in fact, couldn't believe it. It's maaaaad!

    It's the other side of chess. It's got all the gossip - everything. All the cool people post in there. When the main board is quiet - the CL rocks! In fact, I'm going there now. Hot dog.

    On the main forum page below the shoutbox. You have previously posted in the Coffee Lounge.

    Those posters who already have access to the CL but have less than 500 posts will not lose their access.
    What is reason for change?

    Originally those that gained access to the CL had very high posts per day rates but over time those with much lower posts per day rates have gained access.
    Therefore to offset this continuing to happen the posts limit has been raised.

    In hindsight this probably should have happened sooner.

    Thanks Bill, I hadn't a clue really! Usually i post according to the topic and not the category! Good to know though!

    and I just noticed I am getting close to 1500 postings!!! I usually counted my shoutbox ones!!! Now that I have so many i think i ll give some for free, or should I auction them? Starting with say 50c initial price?

    I have an idea - how about making teen mods to mod the teen forum?

    It is a possibility for the future but at present we'll go with what we have. If a large community of posters develops perhaps you suggestion will be taken on board. Personally, I'd prefer a teen member to the board-wide moderation team than a moderator specific to the one forum.
