 How about a bits and pieces thread

Hi everyone,

I was thinking of starting a bits and pieces thread for things we come across that we are not sure where to put. If some one uses the post then an admin. could delete it from the bits and pieces thread and it could live on in its new thread. This could keep it from becoming redundant.

I bring this up because as you can see I have already started 4 seperate threads in the "Other Topics" section, and I don't know that they all deserve there own thread, maybe they do...???

I think this would be helpful for other newbies that may feel a little overwhelmed when trying to fit something into a ongoing thread.

Also, sometimes you can come across things in a rush and don't have time to read it, much less process it, then sometimes it is hard to find said link again.

let me know what you all think, I have some things I'd like to post


Take care,

I personally do not find it necessary.

The "other topics" hasnt been the mindblowing forum for a while.
You have managed to bring some life into it.

The "lets lump all em together" solution might appear confusing and too hasty for a person who wants to concentrate on one theme at a time.
Like me.

Thank you.




peace

I like your style....I told myself that I would go with the first response..
and you got it....but I did have a great(at least to me) thread title..

"Dr. Strangebits or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the synchs ";-)

Thanks for the feedback,

I like the idea of a "misc" thread where you can post whatever, where you may not have a follow-up to go with it.

I had suggested a "photos" thread to Raybeam - and that was the idea behind it. Every now and then a really odd photo will show up on the newswire and I know it means something - but what? Sometimes I will save it, sometimes not. I would save everyone of them and post it if I had a "bits and piece/misc" thread.
