Yeah, I think too that a decent solution is to cut down the chit-chat in serious threads like "Twilight of the bands", and use threads like "How do you feel" for casualness and fun.
What has to be considered though is what I mentioned earlier: That there are periods where virtually nothing happens in the Room, and then some teasing can get the adrenaline going again.
To be more specific, there have been several periods where the conversation has been between Paco and me alone.
Maybe some of you other guys could let your imagination blossom a bit more, and share a bit of what's going on in your life, at least musically. I think it's nice to have some daily chat about something more progressive than Goodnight and Happy Birthday (although these belong in the Room too)
Cap, I appreciate your democratic attitude
