Not everyone is on at the same time, so the normal stuff we post about, we would still use the forums....but, as in the example, the game threads are sometimes not set up in time for the game, and we bounce back and forth from the game threads to the other threads during the games. We could use the chat board more for the "OHHH NOOOO!" Ron Santo type of reactions! LOL
That's a great way to explain it, Heather. The little conversations do clog up the threads and keep us bouncing back and forth among threads, looking to see what others' reactions are to each play. And since we are Cubbie fans, a lot of us do get emotional during games and it helps to be able to express our Ron Santo type reactions.
