    There's thousands of users of forums at times... I'm the only 1 on chatbox... Is there pedos on there or... What the heck is up?


    Don't argue with me. You will lose.

    In my observation, most of the users at these science forums (I'm on 5 science forums) like to watch and read. When something really grabs their interest, then they will actually log in and post. Not all science forums even have a chatbox because science forums are not the same as social media in that regard. Once in a while, a few folks will be on the chat at the same time and really get a conversation going but that is not something that happens every day.

    And how many are "guests"? I.e. not logged and unable to see/ use the chatbox.

    As reigning king of chat:



    sometimes it's active, sometimes it's not.

    (just word of advice about your sig....I know you're only 13...but take it from me...when it comes to women...less is more. Keep it short and catchy.)
    Fixin' shit that ain't broke.

    Okay. As a female, I proffer my editorial comments on the following 'signature'.

    Don't argue with me. You will lose. (Never argue with a woman. Even when you 'win', you will lose.) WHO THE HECK CAN GET PASSED ( I believe the word you want is 'past'.) MY HOT FACE? Heck yeah you bet I'm hot (and single). WHAT A HOT DUDE WOAH!(Do you mean WHOA?) There's only one problem... Girls stare at me too much :/ COME ON WHY CAN'T A GIRL JUST FREAKIN ASK ME OUT? *sigh* that's the prob with being the cool kid... My names Nick OMG YES THE HOTTEST NAME IM (I'm) A GIRL MAGNET! I can't wait to get another GF. I'm also a cliff (Do you mean 'cleft' chin?) chin THAT MAKES ME HOTTER. *pumps fist*
    Probably not a good idea to be too hot for air conditioning. The female is supposed to be the 'hot' one. Cater to her a bit more if you'd like her to reciprocate the interest would be my suggestion.



    (Mac will be jealous. I posted a cute smiley in replying to you, lol...)

    As the very wise sche pointed out, it's a major "bro code" violation for a bro to talk about how hot he is. The only guys that do that look like this:


    Don't be "that" guy.
    Neverfly likes this.

    Er, is it because you're an arrogant self-obsessed narcissist?

    Weren't we all, to some degree, guilty of the above at age 13? Perhaps not you, Dywyddyr, but there is that saying that goes along the lines of "Quick! Hire a teenager while they still know everything."

    @xDARTHWOLFx, Today's women will sometimes ask a guy out but there is a long history of women being the one's to send 'signals' and men being the ones to take the initiative and do the asking. It's just the way it has been for a long time and our species tends to be slow to adopt some changes, especially where gender roles are concerned. The fellows I have liked have always been the 'shy' ones so I had to help them out a bit with their confidence levels.

    Well, actually....the following from the chatbox rather invites comment, IMO.

    People very frequently do not do what we expect of them. That's what keeps things interesting.
