    I don't know if this will get posted or not but here it goes. I joined this board on March 7, 2011 I reached regular here once then lost it. I don't respond to topics that have more than a couple of pages because I feel no one will read that far anyway, so if I have some important info I will send a PM. Why do you have to maintain x amount of post in a couple of weeks to keep your regular status? I log on everyday to read this board some days I comment some I don't. Shouldn't that be enough to be a regular? I have a few things that I would like to trade/sell but can't because I don't have regular status rating. I posted help on finding some material for a friend and got lots of hits on it and she found what she needed the people here are great.
    I guess the problem is I just don't have the time to respond to everything, and most of the time someone has already said what I would have so why repeat it?
    So please when you see a post from me or a topic know that I am a regular here everyday.( except the days that the site is down for what ever reason)
    I love this site and have learned a lot, the people here are wonderful, if one needs something one only has to ask and someone will know the answer, point you in the right direction to find something, give support, lend a shoulder, put a smile on your face, just think what a wonderful place we would have if we all lived in the same town (well maybe state since there are so many of us). I am proud to be part of this community!!

    I have the same problem. I log on regularly but only comment when I have something good to say!

    Kathy, another regular here!

    The 'regular' title is earned by being an active, contributing member of the community. That's why there are posting minimums.

    If having a *regular* status is important to you, just *welcome* the new members daily. You only need about 3 posts per day to maintain a regular user status.

    Two posts a day and you would have and keep "regular" status. You could do that easily by saying Welcome to a couple of people.

    the software keeps track and posts the status, it's nothing personal
    you'd be surprised how many people join simply because they have something to "unload" they are not part of the "family" and don't really care about us and we may never hear from or be able to reach them again, that's why we have so many rules for the classifieds section, we're not e-bay

    Looks like us "Thumb" dwellers are in the same situation. This happens to me very frequently and I feel exactly the same way as you do about posting. Once the original post has reached more than 3 pages, I usually don't bother to comment either.

    I understand the rules and appreciate them. Without rules it would be chaos. So here's a "thank you" to those good moderators who keep us on track. :-)

    a regular here.
    I log on every morning with my tea, after breakfast. Unfortunately (or not) I always seem to have something to say. Sometimes it is just a "ditto". I too love this community and find a lot of joy, laughs, comfort, information, etc. with our friendships.

    I love it here. There are days I can't stay long, but I love to see everyones beautiful work and let them know I like it and welcome as many new members as I have time to do. If I can help someone I love to do it. The rules keep this a good community. Thank you all who work so hard to keep it this way.
