I'm with Richard here. Hangouts have limited space, only 10 people at once. So if you're not going to get on cam, don't bother joining. It's lame to have 2 people on cam, and 8 people displaying an image and just typing in the text chat. That's not what it's for! Cam up, or stay out.

There isn't a problem with one or two people chatting only via the text box, but when the majority of the room is filled with people doing that, why? They can stay in the regular NG chat and do that instead since shit tons of people can fill the NG chat instead of taking up limited cam/mic space. Of course you were getting all butt hurt about me asking for usernames when 2 other people started asking for usernames as well for the exact same reason I was. We had 5 people in there at one point doing nothing but text chatting. That's no good for the people who actually have mics/cams and if we wanted mostly text chatting, we wouldnt have this thread and we'd stick with the NG chat.

Your way of thinking;

"I do not know this user, is it Mary? Is it? Is it Mary? I need to know if its Mary. Mary? Are you Mary? Just tell me if you're Mary."

Only A LOT more intense.

Please don't even deny that that is what you were doing last night. It was the most obvious thing since Taylor Swift and Harry Styles breaking up. Seriously, no one but you had a problem, even with Joel. Who is a fine kid to talk to. And no, I was on the chatbox, YenMuffin was, and the person you kept trying to find out if they were Mary or not.

What Google should do is have a 10 cam max, meaning only 10 people can be on cam at once. Then as many other people can join as they want to listen in, watch the people on cam, chat, etc.

Does me constantly being on mic count enough Wade? Or when I put pony butts on cam?

Am I not cool enough?

No, Ryan, you have to follow Wade's example and get on cam with your iPhone while playing Skyrim. You get bonus points if you ignore the people in the room so you can focus on your game about dragons.

Yes exclusive. People in the room aren't always friendly to newcomers and they get pissed off when we link our room to different parts of the site.

And I can imagine it being the same users everytime who do act that way.

True, but can you also agree that many chat members don't touch General?

About half and half I'd hazard a guess at based on the names I see in the user list crop up.

That's the usual, but there are times where chat members come in and get bitched at. I've seen it.

Again I bet its the same people.. and I bet even more than they don't bitch at newcomers who come on who happen to have a decent set of boobs.

BBS... <1% of site traffic. (Maybe that's to little, but we all know the BBS is not the draw of Newgrounds)

And NG Chat is? What is your point there Travis.

For an example, I am in the chatroom right now - 23 people online. In General 45 online. I don't recall seeing the chatroom get in the high 30s much, if at all.

You can argue that those 23 people are paying more attention to that chatroom then those 45 people are to all the threads in General, but, how often do you see more than 10 people being active to the chat going on in there?

Anyway, of the 3 people (who I can recall) coming from ng chat the other night, 2 of them got on cam to chat and were thoroughly nice new people to converse with. Which was nice, personally.

Like I said, mountain really.

Ok. So 95% of the time when I use Google+ I'm at work. Are you saying Travis that I just shouldn't come on at all then?

Honestly I'm pretty lost at what the argument really is.

So am I.

Like I keep saying, there was no problem REALLY the other night. Not a general issue anyway, just a personal one being blown up out of proposal for the completely wrong reason.

You're right. We should encourage blatant and overt non-joking/funny racism coupled with boxcutters in people's mouths sort of trash to enter the room alongside those who take up slots without using a camera or mic.

non-joking/funny racism

I've seen much worse for much regular users on Google+. Fact.

coupled with boxcutters in people's mouths

No one encouraged that and everyone told him to stop.

take up slots without using a camera or mic.

I'm frankly confused why having 10 people all talking on mic is seen as a golden thing. Sure if you want to keep your tab on something else I get it and thats fine, you don't have to pay attention to the chat box, but even having 8 people all talking on mic, half of it is trying to talk over each other. 10 sounds chaotic as fuck.

I agree with this, I dislike talking over people and as a result even if just 1 other person was currently talking I would be remaining silent, with 9 people saying stuff with each other I would basically be classed as one of those "useless" people taking a spot.

At least I'm ON CAM. It's annoying to be one of the only people on cam while everyone else has a still image, or showing their computer screen, etc. If people can stare at my dumb face, I should be able to see theirs. :P I've done my fair share of talking on cam.

Dug out my webcam, turns out it's been discontinued and there aren't any Win7 drivers for it because it's a ancient and I bought it when I had windows xp. Will buy a new one and then cam up in G+ lol

You can probably find driver's on a third party website.
