    There is a new section on the message board: Personal Diaries and Announcements

    You can read the description and the rules for this section here:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/22099.page

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for the new section.

    Also, posts in General Chit-Chat, Links and Recipes are currently not being displayed in the Recent Topics listing. I don't know if it's permanent or not.

    We'll have to see how it impacts the community overall.

    ok, I'll go first...bc I'm so excited!!!
    I have read and re-read...please tell me if i am on track?
    If a person...me...is interested...
    I pick a name for my topic, and that will always be that section's name?
    So, if I pick: QC's Cave Days, ETC. ...a topic will be started, and i will always return to that same place when I have personal info to share, with anyone that chooses to read it?
    As long as I abide by the rules, it will stay there.
    When I want to talk quilt only, I go to that section of board.
    When I have something to say, that is not quilting, but I believe to be of interest to majority of board members, I post or reply to post's on chit-chat section of board. Am I on track, and if so, how do I get started?
    THANK YOU, ADMIN :XD: oh, and all moderators for everything! :D

    Thank you for adding this section to the board. I have thought a lot about the notice you posted earlier, people feeling uncomfortable, hoping that I have not caused anyone to feel like this is not a good place to be a part of. I'm willing to bet this has weighed heavily in your heart and mind...you are in a position of trying to please everyone and that is not a good position to be in. I want to say thank you for coming up with such a wonderful way of allowing board members to keep in touch on a personal level, without making any member or visitor feel uncomfortable. Once again, you have shown how much you care about our quiltboard community, thank you Admin, for all that you do for us, and keeping our board a happy place to come and spend time in. You are the BEST!!!!

    A BIG Thank You too, to the moderator's, I know that you spend a lot of your time here keeping things running smoothly, too!!!!

    ok, I'm back, bc something was nagging at me...about the topic name, so re-read AGAIN...
    I think, your saying, our topic name will be the nickname we chose, when we came on board? yes?
    but?
    If we put that nick, in the title, and add a little more to it, is that ok?
    EXAMPLE: "Quiltncrazy's Cave Days, ETC."

    What an excellent idea.... I think it's fabulous!

    quiltncrazy, I just had a go and could add other words to Blue Chicken. I assume if it wasn't allowed we wouldn't be able to? Or maybe I'm about to get my hand (or giant foot) smacked?

    Can I also add.... I like the changes to the "recent topics" list.

    I catch up on the days posting with my morning coffee, I've been asleep while you lot have all been yakking away in here. So when there are a whole lot of "link" posts I tend to miss the other things that have happened.

    Nope, your topic in that section would be called "quiltncrazy" -- since it's all about you.

    An added benefit is that once the topic gets indexed by the search, it should come up at the top when someone searches for your nick name on the site.

    And when someone opens up that section directly, they would see a list of people's names. So it would be easy for anyone to follow up on the people they care about.

    If we put that nick, in the title, and add a little more to it, is that ok?
    I guess that's OK too. But please make sure that your nick is prominently featured in the title.
