    Sory guys I need to read better. I was there at 1900, I missed the part about it being at 2100 and I have prior obligations. I hope enough people show up so that is dosn't get shutdown because it is a very helpful tool for us.

    Exclamation Poolee Chat

    This will be a purely poolee function as I will be the only Marine on the site, of course if I have to leave I will have a substitute to fill in for me, but you will know who they are. We "NCOICs" will be there to keep you poolees on track and to keep you from turning it into myspace or text message! In other words we will be there to make sure you stay within the rules of the site! Marines will not answer any questions, hovever thay are invited to ask as many Corps questions as they wish, just to keep the group moving along and learning. They are not there as a source of individual answers, Keep it in a TEAM atmosphire so all will learn, OK?

    Chat room rules are simple for poolee chats:

    1) The host will ask questions

    2) The poolees/wannabees will answere them

    3) Any Marine that does choose to visit us may ask any Corps related
    question he wants and has presidence over the poolee host' question.
    4) Marines, active duty or Former, will use the "open forum" or the "Marines only" section for thier chats during Poolee chat.

    5) No Poolee or wannabe will go to the other rooms during chat then return, those rooms are for our "Marines" and "Marine Friends".

    6) No direspect to anyone will be tolorated during the chat time...NONE!

    7) Because of the Females in the room we will all refrain from colorful language, due to the Sexual Harrassment laws! Keep it civil!

    8) Official chat closes at 2300 EST, all school age participants must log off the site at that time!

    9) Professionism will be maintained during the entire chat, no joking etc!

    10) the poolees left "on the poolee chat room area" after 2300 can leave or stay that thier pleasure, it pretty much turns into a chat at that time!

    There are 10 rules for you to remember...only 10.

    I want to personally invite each and every poolee/wannabee to attend on Sunday evening and get a head start learning your Boot Camp Knowledge! This will be taught by a person that knows his/her stuff.

    The room is big enough for all that want to attend, so get your paper, pencil, glass. or can, of soda, popcorn, sandwich together, go to the head, scratch yourself, change cloths....whatever, but be ready to start poo;ee chat at 2100 EST, 2000 CST, 1900 MST and 1700 PST!

    Lets keep this Chat alive and everyone get in there and learn every Sunday!

    Thanks

    Dave
    Chat will be up and running tonight. We might have a few special guests dropping by as well!

    Great time last week, had quite a few poolees in there. Toward the end we had some Marines pop in and answer some questions. (Thank you for that Marines)

    We will be starting poolee chat in the chatroom tomorrow at 2100 EST, 2000 CST, 1900 MST and 1800 PST.

    As the duly appointed NCOIC of the Sunday Chat, I want to thank all the Marines that were in there tonight as well as the three wannabes! If I hadn't been there myself and saw it with my own eyes, I would not have believed that not one Poolee showed up, even the host didn't stay!

    For the next few day I am gonna review this chat room thing and try to determine if YOU want to keep it going. It is up to you, as poolees. If you want to make any comments, please PM me and I will be happy to read your thoughts on this matter. Any Comments will be appreciated.

    I will make an announcement by thursday if this is to continue or if we just stop it for lack of participation. It is up to you, Poolees.

    Dave

    I don't know if it's just my computer or if a lot of poolees have this same problem, but the chat isn't fast enough and gets backed up really easily, so by the time I'm "finished" typing my answer to something, it's already passed and it's on to another subject.

    Maggies Drawers.

    As we were saying last night, they are obstinate, know it all, non respectful, text messagers, from the me, me, me, Mommy's teat generation.

    Your quote, 'They all seem to get humble, the week before thet ship'.

    All full of excuses. I say let them continue to ask their questions in the poolee forum.

    I also say to ban for 3 days those without a profile, or for non punctuation or capitalization.

    Illegitimi Non Carborundum!!

    how can you ban a poolee for non-capitalization or lack of punctuation when there are plenty of Marines on this forum doing the same??

    Leadership by example anyone?

    My learned Marine, you are not helping the situation here. The site made the rules for a reason long before you or I became a member. The rules are simple:

    http://www.leatherneck.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=29048

    Have you even read them Corporal? You as a propsective Officer should know that you can't second guess the rules. Try second guessing the CMC rules and see how far your carreer goes! The people that own and operate this site made these rules to help the prospective recruits become better marines, to teach them how to interact properly. If not here, where? If not us teaching them, who? You? Would you appreciate getting written messages from someone in text versions, especially if you don't understand texting?

    I have noticed, as others have, that you have a away of belittling the Marines on this site. If we don't meet your standards, then move on to another site, we don't need you disrupting this one! We have been here for years and have had many, many squad leaders and guides, in boot camp promoted to PFC and L/Cpl, because of our mentoring and training we give these poolees of ours. We are proud of our Marines, and I don't think any of them would agree with you.

    YOU mentioned leadership by example, how about support your Marines, NCOs and SNCOs. If they need correcting it is done by PM, where it can be discussed privately. Never in front of the men!

    If I am out of line Corporal, PM me and we can discuss it. Otherwise, how does it feel to be put in your place in public? One Corporal to another that is!

    Semper Fi,

    Dave
