Curt...can you tell me where you find "todays posts"? Are you referring to "Recent Threads" on the front page? Not being a smarty...just don't know if I'm missing something. (as has happened more than once)

Chuck

He must mean either "New Posts" on the menu bar or "Last Day" under the
Active Topics menu (left end of menu bar).

On the blue bar. It's under "Quick Links"

Nope, it's the first option under Quick Links.

I do something similar to Curt but i use the home page to first see the recent topics and then hit new posts. This tells me if I missed anything in any recent posts because it is in dark blue and you go back as far as you want.

But with that said I agree with Skip and he worded it well. Yes these things are all part of life and they do get mixed in. But these are the dark side of life and they take on a different meaning especially to the one it has happened to. What a separate forum would do is let that person be able to come to that area and see what his friends of the internet have been saying and be able to read all the words and prayers and well wishers. He does not have to scroll through many threads to find his or hers. He may want to send PM to people because of what they said. They probably are in the least bit interested in other happenings at that particular time in their life.

Again I will use the same words I did before when trying to get a couple different forums started here. What can it hurt???

I had a sister drop dead two weeks ago, she was only 52 and as healthy as anyone ever was. I didn't post any notice of her passing on here, simply because, when I come here checking into how many postings people might have made would just remind me of her passing. And that's not what I come to this place for, I come here to help me forget not remember. Personally, I think that there are enough forums on this site, and, I don't understand why people are always trying to get new ones set up. Casual conversations is a perfect place for bereavement notices, any and all that I've noticed in CC get a good amount of respectable responses. I don't think that a separate forum would get, any or many more. I know that I won't be visiting any forum, that is just for death and sickness postings. I think it would be a bit morbid, plus, what a mood changer. If we keep wanting new forums all of the time, the site will soon be broken up into so many sections that people will lose interest. And no I'm not bashing this idea because of who brought up the subject, I'm just stating what I think. I voted against the idea, simply because I don't think we need the change. But, I would like to know why it's usually the same people who always seem to want new forums?

Is that not just what the casual conversations forum is set up for?

John, it could hurt the site by losing members because of this ongoing foolishness. Why is it, that you are always the one that is seeking these changes? Personally, I think the site works fine as it is. Have you ever heard the saying, If it ain't broke, don't fix it or you could render it useless? That's how I feel about the AIP, it works fine as it is, so, leave it alone.
I strongly feel, that casual conversations is the best place for these types of notices. Afterall, if you were out having a conversation with another person in real life, it's a casual setting and you talk about these type of things. So what is so wrong with us conversing about them in our casual conversations setting? Plus, how many people do you know of, who wants to be kept being reminded of such sad happenings on an ongoing basis. I know that after three miserable days at my sisters services, that I didn't want to be bothered with what other people had to say. I just wanted to relax, and to try to forget about it for a little while.

Hello Len

Let me first say I am sorry for your loss. May your sister rest in peace. That was far too young. You chose to deal with her death as you see fit and as I stated at the very beginning this is always a personal time. Everyone is respected in the way they deal with it.

As I also stated at the beginning this is being brought up for a vote. Your opinion is a valued one as is every other member's is too. What forums you visit or what you view here is again an individual thing and no one here is forcing anyone to do anything they do not want to do.

I will address your last statement because I remember you did not like my last proposal of the hall of fame forum too. I get it that you do not think any change is needed and you stated it fine but I think there might need to be. This entire site has grown in leaps and bounds over the many years it has existed thanks to the hard work of its founders and also the membership. Without a membership there is no forum. Within that growing spurt there have been many changes. Some came with little resistance but some came with much. But over time things settle down and it is proven to be well worth the efforts. The product you are looking at now will definitely not be the finished product by any means. You will never know if an idea is good or bad if you do not try. I am trying. Knock me all you want for it but I will continue to try. All this is is a poll and if not accepted I am willing to accept the wishes of the many. Nothing lost and nothing gained.

Could you imagine what the penturning hobby would look like if no changes were ever made?? Happy turning.

Very interesting and cleaver way to hijack a thread. I do have to ask with all the traps in this thread why do you think anyone would want to post a no reason. In the sake of fairness and equality there is none. I am not trying to be negative or cause grief but I am pointing out a very obvious problem that should have been addressed earlier in the thread but was ignored.
