Is it possible to create a Friends List Access-Only chat room, please?

I just saw this:


"This is a room for my friends to gather and have a good time. It is my room and if you are not on my friends list dont come in. I will kick you out. NO DRAMA ALLOWED. Pictures may be posted with MY or some one with a hammers permission. If you post with out permission you are gone."

I just thought perhaps it would look a bit more friendly for people visiting the chat rooms area if people who only want their friends list people in could choose that option instead of appearing a bit pre-menstrual about it? dontknow

Sorry if this should go in the other forum.

Yeah, I have to say I don't find that very inviting... You can set up a private chat room and have a password, there's no need to be all "I have the power" about it??

Hey, Shy... Remember that time you and me and CrazyDiamond had that private chat room that day?

Mazza's Nasty Place???


Ha, now THAT was a room that needed password protection, huh, HUH???

There is actually no reason for that room to be created like that. The chat rooms are PUBLIC unless they are locked.

I think it's fine to have one's own rules about what is and isn't acceptable, but something like that could be worded a bit less hostile! So perhaps that facility might help? And the password could be posted on a person's blog, as long as they set that private. Then their mates could see it.

As for that room, Mazzy... what happens in Nasty, stays in Nasty. Right? ...Right? confused5

Well most people would just PM the friends they wanted to invite and give them the password then...

Ahhh, I got your back, Daisy... I'll never tell.

As for CD though... *shrugs*

First of all if someone doesn't want to be in a public chat room they should create a private room, give it a password and lock it. It's that simple. Then send a message to all your friends with the password, or just the ones you want to chat with. You don't need to be insulting to other people. You don't need to let anyone in the room except the people you want. You don't have to make threats. Anyone with a Lush account can create a private chat room. Having one doesn't make you all that special. The only thing special about any of the private chat rooms are the people in them. If they're surly and mean I don't want to be in there anyway.

Don't be mean, people.

I could be wrong but we have told members if they make their own room that they can kick or allow whom they want in, whether it's right or wrong. People have the right to go in them or not, it's their choice. I'm not trying to be harsh but if a member makes a room as long as it falls in lush guidelines, it's their room.

No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy -unless you let him.

There are a few regular people that make open rooms that have a list of to do's and don'ts, warning of being kicked and who is allowed in and who is not. How was this room any different?

It was different because I didn't see the others, and I thought this one just sounded agressive in its wording. So I thought an answer mught be to have to ability to have Friends List Access Only facility. It was just a suggestion.

The other rooms come and go... Anyone making a room has the ability to invite strictly friends. I have talked to the person and it will be private, if it is made again.

I agree with everybody else this type of room would suck how would you meet new friends who you never know you might just like a lot

It's a nice suggestion shylass.
When making a private room there should be the ability to invite all of your friendslist and not only one friend at a time, it can be tiresome if you want to invite a whole lot of friends.

As for public usermade rooms, I think they still have the right to ban a person they do not like/can't get along with from their own room. However taking out everyone but the people on your friendslist do seem a bit.. as stated before, unfriendly.

I think the reason for Shy's suggestion is because the manner in which the room was labeled. It is not that she thought that one shouldn't be allowed to place restrictions and rules on the room. I happened to have seen the wording and it was harshly worded and lacked some, well I won't go there. People should watch how they say things.

Ta, Catnip. That's the method of what I meant.

Aye. That's exactly the reason I meant it. Sometimes, the way we write things on the internet may be meant neutrally, but it doesn't always come across that way.

Glad we sorted that out. sunny
