If you consider yourself an active CR user, even if you just lurk,
please post in this thread to sound off! Should you choose to become inactive, please post and say so. At intervals, someone can compile the names added and subtracted and post a list of all users.
Please don’t post before you have been a user for 2-3 weeks and plan to continue being active..
I’ll start – Randomex! (Most random of all memberexes!)

If you choose to become inactive and post to state so, you will no longer be inactive.September 22, 2014 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1033871
A post declaring inactivity from the time of the post on does NOT violate its own premise.September 22, 2014 2:46 am at 2:46 am #1033872
That’s very debatable.September 22, 2014 3:12 am at 3:12 am #1033873
If a man says “I will no longer speak!”, was that an inherently untrue statement? Certainly not!September 22, 2014 3:28 am at 3:28 am #1033874
Debatable.September 22, 2014 6:24 am at 6:24 am #1033875
I think I’ve been here for 2-3 weeks, but I’m not sure…September 23, 2014 9:25 am at 9:25 am #1033876
Lior: Is not.
Mommy, Gavriel’s fighting with me!)September 23, 2014 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #1033877
Which one of you is Gavriel?September 23, 2014 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1033878
Neither of us – it’s a reference to a popular Jewish children’s book series. Shall we see if anyone comes through who knows it? (I have somehow not gotten it through my skull that references are not inherently worthwhile content. Or are they?)
Or do you get it, and want to know who’s older? I’ve got 5 months to Lior’s one in CR time.
No one seems to care about this list… I remember seeing an old “Official Coffee Room Members List” thread before, but that must have died for the same reason. If only this could be a mod-operated open sticky with the top post being updated… but why should they give themselves more work? (I suppose it could just be the time of year, though.)
I guess I should give away the reference – it’s The Cheery Bim Band (mostly?) by M.C. Millman (I heartily recommend her “Mastermind” and “Mind Your Own Business,” and I think a more recent book was also set at the same school those two were).
A running gag is fights between Gavriel, the band’s leader,
and his little sister Dassie.September 23, 2014 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1033879
Randomex, I was joking.
I did read (all vol. of) CBB but MANY years ago and did not “chap” the reference.
MYOB I think I read and Mastermind I’m not sure. What were they about? Was Mastermind about hacking into the school’s phone system and canceling school??
Also read the BY Times and Junior and Bakers Dozen and Operation Firestorm(?) and they were all connected sort of, if it remember correctly…September 24, 2014 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1033880
Yes, that was Mastermind.
Those other series, not by M.C. Millman, were indeed all part of the same “canon” (not the same one as those 2 Millman books).
By the way, just to clarify, the bold lines in the original post were written by me, not a mod. (I think a mod would usually add
“EDIT:” in bold before an addition to a post.)
Usually not. KVT.October 2, 2014 9:26 am at 9:26 am #1033881
Is that so? I think I remember seeing something like that… Could it have been policy to do that in the past?
I’ve definitely seen [(edited)] on posts, such as this one by Writersoul.
The addition of the comments thread link to Shopping’s first serial post definitely had no such tag, though.
