Before I start... in this blog, I may provide examples of happenings in chat. If you recognize this example as something involving you and you do not wish for it to exist in the blog, send me a PM. I'll remove it. NO ONE will have their name in an example to start with, but if you wish for the anonymous example to be removed anyway, by all means I will do so. Also, If I say something in general about a community or something of the sort, it doesn't actually perfectly apply to EVERYONE in that community. It is just a way of generalizing a large social group. If you find this offensive in a legitimate way and have proof that I am wrong about my generalization, let me know and we can work things out. Thanks :D

If you have a problem with the post PM me.

That was long.

I have been visiting the PMC chat room on and off again. I took a break for a while. I come back, and there are new faces there who seem to be regulars. There are also the familiar chat people. They stayed, and the best thing is, I came back after a LONG time, and I was greeted as if I had never left. The community in that chat room is extraordinary, and I felt like I was at home again.

The chat room has a few rooms. The main one is the lobby, and that is where the best things happen. If something happened to you that is a very small good thing, even the tiniest of things and you share it, you are relatively likely to get plenty of support for it. If you post a link to your hard-worked-on project, people will actually click on it. And they will probably actually care about parts of it. If someone is having trouble with something, the amount of people that help is overwhelming. I cannot fathom how this chat room is set apart so well from most others out there, but the PMC community shaped it.

People are polite about things too. If you screw up a little bit, you get politely asked or told something regarding it. There are chat mods. Greatest thing to happen to chat ever in my opinion. I have not seen a time where there ISN'T a chat mod in lobby. They lurk around, maybe they are hidden. But they do their job astoundingly well. They are the best peacekeepers I have ever really seen.

The fact that the rules in lobby are so closely followed by people is not due to force. It is because people who are regulars to lobby actually care about the place. They want to have fun, and talk about important things to them and listen to others. They say hi. If you say "Hi" in lobby, there is going to be at least one person who returns the favor.

People who are regulars also care about PMC as a whole. The place is such a feel-good place that when chat goes down, peoples moods go down. The moment chat comes back up, everyone is happy and glad to be back in he place where they feel appreciated. PMC chat.

I have to mention Paril. Paril has done so much for chat, and PMC as a whole. I don't even understand how he manages all this and still has a sane mind. Probably is a cyborg. The changes that have been made to chat since Paril started working on it are never bad. He always improves something.

The feeling you get the first time you go into the chat room is great. You suddenly are in a world of other minecrafters, talking to you. Listening to you. Exchanging information with you. Looking at your work and appreciating it, giving you suggestions on how to improve it. And everything that occurs in there is generally nice and peaceful. The chat mods direct the conversations away from risky subjects, and it gets done without being terribly obvious too. The chat, as a whole, is a place where you can go to have a good time and just relax. You can make a ton of friends and start to learn a ton of new things.

I love PMC chat.

The end.

Actually this isn't the end. I went with my gut on this one, no revisions no proofreading. Spellcheck, that is it. I'm leaving this one up to my heart. Thank you PMC chat :D

I agree. Maybe this will motivate me to go on chat more often.

PMC chat is pretty cool. I left for about three months and came back, people still recognized me though.
