One of the few features on Planet Minecraft that I don't use is the chat. I find games with built in chat fine, but for some reason plain online chatrooms get me nervous for many reasons.

Reason 1: Awkward Silence

There's nothing worse than saying something and not getting a reaction, especially in chat. Upon joining a chatroom, I say "Hi," or "Hello." Then, it's followed by an awkward silence. This usually leads me to leaving after waiting one to three minutes for someone to respond.

Person 1: Don't worry, it's fine! It's not a big deal!

Person 2: It looks horrible though!

Person 1: Stop feeling down about yourself, if they don't like it, then they don't like it. What's the issue?

Person 3: Yeah, stop caring about what others think!

Person 2: Thanks guys, you're the best :)

Me: Hi ._.

Reason 2: Current Conversations

Conversing
is something humans have done since the beginning of time, and
chatrooms are no exception. I often join a chat and witness a
conversation that I know literally NOTHING about. It's even worse when
you THINK they're talking about a subject you're familiar with, so you
try to put in your two cents, and then realize it's about something
totally different.

Person 1: Dude, you were totally hacking, I saw you flying.

Person 2: Hacker!

Person 3: I wasn't fly hacking! I just hacked to get more gems!

Person 2: So you were hacking -_-

Person 1: I bet that's how you got a legend rank

Person 2: You should've been banned

Person 1: I'm gonna report you!

Me: That wont work, Mineplex doesn't really read the reports anyway.

(Long pause)

Person 2: What's Mineplex?

Reason 3: Role Playing

I've never been a huge fan of chat roleplays, or roleplaying in general, which really sucks because a ton of my friends on Minecraft are really into that sort of thing. Joining a chat in the middle of a roleplay is really awkward.

Person 1: *Jumpscares Chica*

Person 2: *Attacks Bonnie"

Person 3: <Freddy> Guys! The guard is here!

Person 2: *Stands in place*

Me: What's a Chica.

Reason 4: Empty Rooms

A lot of times I'll join a chat, and have nobody in it. Usually, I'd just leave, but once something weird happened.

Me: (Joins)

Me: (Waits for a minute)

Person 1: (Joins)

Me: Hi

Person 1: What were you doing in chat by yourself?

But... but I like roleplays... but when I do I usually do it in the private chats, unless I can't. Anyways, nice blog post.
