All credits go to Pandas, because Pandas is obviously #1.
So (I'm just gonna talk about myself right now, since I actually agree with Pandas' opinion), what if we simply created a, say, Elder+ forum for specifically what we're not supposed to discuss on the Chatbox.
I don't know if vB allows it, but make it for example an Elder+ forum of General Chat. Of course it would need serious moderation both by GMods and specific subforum moderators. I even volunteer to moderate it (since Tracky won't promote me to GMod ).
I'd really like that, and I'm sure other people would, too.
