Another one here saying ... I don't get it!

Simply put
This forum section is titled ....... "General Chit-Chat (non-quilting talk)"
Doesn't that tell us that this forum is most anything other than quilting talk?
Thus, if you don't want to see stuff not-about-quilting ... then don't go there!

I never see the games. I enter the Quilting Board via ...

Quiltingboard Forums
or .... via the auto-emails that come when a thread I am subscribed to, has a new post(s)
Subscriptions automatically happen as soon as I post.
Or if I do not want to post, I can manually subscribe.

Maybe this will help some?

I assumed as this is a "quiltingboard forum" that the subtopics have something to do with quilting or quilters. And that the subgroup had something to do with what quilters might do other than quilting. So topics like how to stitch on faux fur, and any ideas for a good embroidery book, or stretching exercises during sewing marathons might have a place to be discussed. I don't get the "games" or "jokes about blondies". When someone posts something other then "games" and "blonde jokes", it rapidly gets buried why down the list. Just seemed to me the that "games" and "blonde jokes" have enough volume or traffic to warrant their own special place.

“What quilters might do other than quilting”. Like word games and jokes?

Here I am again, saying "I don't get it!"
Simply put, I just don't get why quilters should not enjoy games ... and jokes.

Gosh, we'd be pretty boring people if our interests ended ...... in the sewing room!

I think that there so many...it is overwhelming the first quarter of the board when you open it to look for new posts.
When I open The Quilting Board, I'd like to see quilting -related posts and, if I'm interested in the rest I can go and find that.

Me also a definite yes. The games are filling in so much of the blog and I come to see all the fabulous quilts made and helpful information members put out there. I really agree there should be another place for the games.

Again, the description of this General Chit-Chat forum says “non-quilting talk." The Main forum is for all things quilting.

OK...I get it. If the topic is "non-quilting talk" it Means "games". Anything else goes into one of the other sections OK..I will start doing that. Now that I understand the rules. I can do that. Maybe a statement could be added to "non-quilting talk AKA Games?)
