Er, composing myself -- be it known that Katie is not in any way, shape or form 'easy'. I should hate to have to engage in fisticuffs with Iggy over a lady's honor. ;)

I haven't engaged in fisticuffs since... *rereads* Oh, you mean as in fighting. I don't do that. lol

I have a suggestion! How about a 'Word of the Day' thread? Doesn't have to be daily, but there are just so many out-of-use words that are so interesting. I love obscure vocabulary, and I often come across words that I wish to share with people. Even if most would know them, it is nice to remind people of those nice, oft-forgotten words. XD

Hey, Randy! Wouldn't it be a really interesting idea to form little forum trusts or "Alliances" they have links to each other's forums and pooled together resourced, exchanged members and used that to grow bigger and develop cyberculture? I was thinking of bringing Grammar Queen's forum and this one into the equation to start. It'll help us grow faster.

I think alliances are a very good idea.

Queen likes the idea too. I think we should do it.

Can we make a different thread for philosophical disscussion?

I also suggest that we try to make less off topic post and should go to relevant threads? Maia had a point. It makes it easier to check posts on the related threads and join in.

It's not possible to check all the emails alerts and posts all the time. Looking at cluttered threads is not helpful when one wants to find out what happnned there in one's absence- the exact relvance as well as reference in between. It hinders participation of late comers on the topics.

The only problem I see with that suggestion, RC, is that it might stifle the natural flow of conversation. What does everyone else think?

The only time I get confused is when people talk in the timeclock thread. I never check there.

Reader's Corner

A little bit of organized approach won't hurt.

I had to check something the other day at WA and I knew where to look for it. It is not that difficult to look for information in older threads at LSD too. Sy did some organization whenever he could. Same for LFE.

In LSD and LFE we did chat everywhere as well at times but, we used to go back to relvant thread ultimately. Too many times Aislyn would just gently tell us to move to chat and we got off the time clock thread.

It was just a suggestion.

I have no problem with making the suggestion of moving a topic that has gotten off topic.

Should Randy be responsible for the reminder, or should it be the person who wants to post off topic?

I had mulled that very thing over this morning while lying in bed coming slowly awake.

I'm trying to hit a happy medium here. Too lenient, and we end up like TBB's old forum, where it devolved into chat very quickly. Too strict, and you have a situation where some members tell others not to spam up a thread when the conversation takes a turn they don't like.

So, what have I had in the past two days:

1) Someone complaining that we had too many threads devoted to wank.

2) Someone complaining about the lack of wank in the wank thread.

3) An admittedly funny fandom discussion in the thread I've set up for member conflict.

4) A fairly serious discussion in the Ins and Outs thread, as opposed to the usual meeting and greeting that goes on.

I really don't mind this. Yes, I'd like to stay on topic, but not at the expense of inhibiting the natural flow of a conversation. People will discuss hotly and then make up. The conversation may turn serious again. I don't want to be the hardass who has to tell people they can't mention religion or philosophy in the course of a political discussion, or say a quick hello.

The reason I don't move discussions is that, from experience, it kills them dead. Another reason would be that people who have been following a topic will get alerts only for that topic and may not realize the conversation has moved.

Yikes! That makes it sound as if I have been playing gouvernante, there, all the time! :(

However, RC has a point with trying to find back to a discussion. How about providing links to make it easier to find back to an ongoing discussions? Perhaps something like an 'interesting forum discussions' thread with links in it? kind of like the "bribery court" in the LC?

Nope- I always appreciated that and liked your style- Very often people say nothing because they don't wants to seem impolite. You managed to get us to right thread and without offending anybody.

Or perhaps we can have a that that documents everything that happens on the forum with links? Sort of like an announcement thread, only like a bulletin board or something...
