  • It's not a huge deal to me. Plus half the time I don't notice chatters instantly because you don't get any sort of alert. If you care though, clean up your friend list.

  • I hardly ever look at my chatterbox. I might not see the message for weeks.

  • I always forget to look at my chatterbox too! If you want to clean up your friends list, send everyone an email telling them you are cleaning up your friends list and if they want to stay on it, reply to your email. Thats what one of my friends did.

  • shrug it off......people are busy. I also never check, there have been times where i had messages weeks old. It's not a big deal.

  • if they dont reply i just figure they are busy and dont have the time right now. i dont delete them. i had what i thought was a friend on here and i didnt reply to a couple of her pms. i had things to do and just popped on to check things and didnt have time to reply and she deleted me from her friends list and blocked me. to each his own but i found it to be a bit immature.

  • Want you send them a PM and see what happens. That will determine whether or not they need to be deleted.

  • I don't talk to a lot of the people on my friends list, and they don't talk to me. No big deal. Most people have friends that never talk. Some people add friends for different reasons. I only now 2 people on my friends list in "real life" everyone else are people I know from groups around CM. People who I don't know I add because I like their personality and want to read funny journal updates, or do showdowns with or what ever. Not everyone on here is here to chatter. I'm here for groups. Most people have a lot of friends on their list, and if they did EVERYONES chatterbox's it would take a long time. You would end up being sent the same cut and paste message all that persons other friends got. If you want friends that talk a lot, delete all the people that never talk from your friends and only add friends you have made a good relationship with in a group. So it's already a friendship, and you know them.

  • Keep trying. Not continually, but once a week, say. If after a month or more there seems to be no interest, then let them go. I know that I don't check my chatterbox very often but do see the message notification for messages.
