    Like the good news thread except it's for any unfortunate or bad news others might have that don't merit starting a while new thread.

    I think my fuel pump is going out. We just got the furnace placed afte 8 days of cold without. A little space in between problems would have been nice.

    My bad news is that there's now ANOTHER one of these freaking ginormous catch-all threads that will take even MORE discussion threads out of the already dwindling number of threads in this forum. For serious. :wall:

    Well maybe if we do away with the questions and being back QR then maybe there would be more threads and replies?

    Of al the threads I am a member of this is the only one that doesn't have a QR and has questions every time you post. I could see the questions and such up to a certain time ... But after a poster reaches a certain number of posts I think the QR should come back available and the questions go away.

    No.

    If the lack of QR and the questions was the reason, people wouldn't be posting in the venting/good news/other like tthreads either.

    I think Venting and Good News are fine, but this is excessive and redundant.

    Also, I think ongoing threads like the weight loss thread, the snapshot from your day, etc end up accumulating posts that wouldn't otherwise be important enough to start their own topic, and wouldn't end up getting posted anywhere else.

    Only the Weight Loss thread is stickied, so maybe if people are really that bothered by such threads they should just stop posting in them....

    I was trying to give ppl a place to post their little bits of bad news that didn't merit a whole new thread. I didn't realize I was contributing tithe demise of the forum :p

    I agree on both counts.
    For me, the fact that Fable is sick is definitely freaking bad news. So I vented about it in the other thread. A bad news thread is hardly different, really. It's talking about problems, aka. . .venting.

    Yo. People. Go and be and change you want to see in the (chaz) world....

    :rofl1:

    We all have the same complaints, I think we should just go back to posting threads and commenting in other people's threads. Even if it's a "cute picture" comment, I'm sure it's appreciated :) I appreciate them, anyway. Just do it, and people will follow ;)
