Okay, It seems that even when something is a carefully orchestrated as the launching of this Subforum, there are still teething problems. Seems patience is not necessarily a virture with a few of the Mods.

Anyway, As Baf indicated, if the OP wants it moved ....
If the originator wants we can move it back to the General Discussion section.


The OP has indicated her desires,
well just to give you something to do, why don't you move this thread back to the general section? thanks!


And the request has been ignored, I will take it upon myself to rectify the matter.

thanks, SMS. well it's not totally Baf's fault for leaving it there as i kinda wavered and said in a later post that i wouldn't mind leaving it there just to get the subforum going as long as it wouldn't be heavily moderated. also to keep quasi's thread company seeing as he very nicely started one there. it also occured to me that having a thread here doesn't prevent it from being moderated and moved about anyway so it really didn't make a difference which forum it was in!

is there a kind of moderators forum where you guys could discuss things before unleashing your decisions on the rest of the world? :wink:

i agree patience is needed in any teething situation and so will now put on a happy face though this thread's has pretty much lost its train. :D

Actually, Pal asked me to flesh out that forum as it was me who initially requested it. We do have a Moderator's forum which is invisible to normal posters. and I worked on this over a week with input from JP, Baf, SE & myself. The Rules were drafted by input from all the Mods. I though it was pretty settled but I guess we were hoping somebody would jump right in. Unfortunately it's launch was not at the most auspicious of times was it! What with the debacle on the t-shirt thread.

Oh, unfortunately, I have to disagree with you with regard to the meandering all over the shop. This is not condusive to a serious discussion. To hard to follow looking for the relevant bits inbetween the garbage. That's why I always still used the "Talking Point" Forum on the Angry Board. It was self moderated by the posters themselves. (just guests could not post -but they could read like here). I wanted it to be the same way here, depending on the OP's feeling when posting the topic whether they wanted serious or meandering/lost original topics.

I still think it will work. :wink:

meandering is nature's way. have you ever seen a straight river? :P

ok ok i know what you mean and agree to a certain extent. there comes a point where the flow no longer just meanders but disappears altogether or heads off in another direction from what was intended.
