THE GUYS AT KONGREGATE KILLED THE CHAT ROOM
We're in the room Aimless now
The Inconspicuous Cardboard Box (often called The Box or ICB) is a medium-large room on Kongregate. It has four mods that we all love, them being: Mostly Harmless, Osric, Wolfey, and chichimom79. It was one of the rooms made by JimGreer, the site's co-founder, although it's creation date is unknown to most Boxians (the term to which Box members call themselves.) The name, which alone has gained many regulars, originated here: http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=189
The Box is open to all: boys, girls, young, old, gay, straight, furries....all you have to be is open minded, and willing to treat others as you want to be treated. (And be able to take a joke! That's important!) If you fit those terms, then welcome to The Box! ~Otakumom...
Over time these were developed as many users of The Box decided that official "Box Policies" were needed. This was most likely triggered when Mostly_Harmless typed in the first policy.
- Box Policy #0 - Box policies have no numerical order.
- Box Policy #-1 - There is no Box policy before negative 1.
- Box Policy #-2 - All Box Policies are not meant to be followed.

Current active mods are: None
People are happy to help others if they need help on a game or in life, unless nobody knows what to say. Spammers are pretty rare, but are taken care of via muting the spammer, reporting the spammer for being a jerk, or allowing the spammer to be silenced by a mod. Many of the people in The Box are natives of that chat room, meaning that they visit that chat room more often than others and usually don't change chat rooms at all. This creates a close sense of society within Boxians, and allows them to know the traits and characteristics of their fellows. This can also lead to quick creation of distrust or grudges if someone does something wrong. Many players from the flash game Dino Run came to The Inconspicuous Cardboard Box to join the community, which usually lead to more people from Dino Run coming. These people usually know their friends from Dino Run and join them in The Box, where they make new friends and stay with their old ones. While The Inconspicuous Cardboard Box doesn't have a perfect community, it's a stable one and developing fast.
Usually a chat-room that stays to itself. Boxians were shocked when the room name was changed to 'Area 51'. After a day of it however, tempers rose. A forum-based revolt led by MisterQwerty and Dotrawr brought the old name back, and peace was restored.
Many regs have quit, as a result if you are a reg you won't see a lot of people you know maybe except for Osric and sirkingofold.
During the history of the Inconspicuous Cardboard Box's existence, we have had several different game crazes which tended to be multiplayers. Some of which included:
- Sacred Seasons
- Dream World
- Everybody Edits
- Anti-Idle: The Game
- Idle Mine
- AdVenture Capitalist
- D is for Doofus (By Benodoc)
They are a group committed to the welfare of the Inconspicuous Cardboard Box, and making sure that Trolls do not invade. This is an arduous task, therefore, the BoxKnights are usually around frequently. Respected if known, they rise above the classes and dominate the Cardboard. Most BoxKnights tend to be mods while others are just dedicated members to the room. The BoxKnights include:
- Darkcerberus5690 (retired)
- PortableJellProd (retired)
- Kralis (retired)
- Osric (Dictator of the box)
- Mostly_Harmless - Room Owner Of TICB - "80% harmless, 30% dangerous, 20% margin of error." (quit being the Room Owner and doesn't come on anymore)
- Chichimom79 - Lead Moderator For TICB - "Happy Gaming! :)" (Doesn't come on anymore)
- Osric - *This space left intentionally blank.* (dictator mod of the box)
- Wolfey - "Ohai." (doesn't come on anymore)
- Apedogemophead (a useless mod Newly appointed mod in 2012 or 2013)
- CowFriend (New Room Owner)

Regulars, commonly referred to as "regs", are Boxians who have had a persistent attendance in the Box, and are non-troll. Other regs can vote to induct non-regs to become regulars, and only if the majority rules. I've tried to separate the inactive regs and regs who have moved rooms away from the active reg list to try to clean up the list a little.
