Forum Administration Communication

nina said on gV:
"it may look like there is no intention of adding more smilies, but there actually is.
right now there isnt a good way to present a large number of smilie options though, so none have been added in some time. i am hopeful that will change though, so keep em coming :)"

That may not look like much, but that kind of thoughtful and proactive communication from our forum hosts is HUGE to me.  It's not just a "here's what's going on" message, it's a "here's what's not" and "why."  That's often overlooked and underestimated.  Good on ya, nina.

  1. That's one way of solidifying your forum membership. Sucking up to the owner.

  4. Ah, it's all so subjective. Forum membership is truly in the eye of the beholder.

    Btw, it appears there is some renewed consternation about my recruiting efforts for gV with the arrival of dadatic and Tre. I think they'll find, to mixed reactions, that dada and Tre, like Mary and V, for example, are actually delightful posters.

  5. Actually, I sometimes wonder if Rotpaulette tout has as much trouble understanding my posts as I have understanding hers.

    I have figured out that in Rotpaulette's world, if you express any kind of appreciation for Pep at all, you get the tout "CaTo" treatment. Giggly drive-by nips.

  8. In truth, I've known the routine for some months now. I got the 'I hope you are not mad at me' PM back in March.

    LOL!
    I've been travelling to a wet and gray UK this week, so have not been online a lot, did check my inboxes but no apologies yet. It may be too early though!
