Ye Olde Suggestion Box & Non-Tech Stuff Thread

We both post/follow Everybody Loves Raymond. It's a good example of a thread that usually had new posts every day or every couple of days before the update. We can follow the dates of posts at the top of every post.
For what it's worth, I haven't noticed a change in the threads/forums I follow.
There was a break in posts from:
March 24 thru March 29 (5 day gap)
April 8 thru April 20 (12 day gap)
April 27 thru May 5 (8 day gap)
Those gaps total 25 days of absence, which is unusual for Everybody Loves Raymond. I consider that noticeable.
Those were my thoughts, too. I'd forgotten about Facebook and twitter, but it's harder to have a good discussion on those. Like other posters, I'm pleasantly surprised to see the return of the old envelopes to the topics pages. Maybe having the forums look more familiar will bring back some normalcy.
I've been wondering for weeks now if the dropoff in posting is just some perfect storm of upgrade/warm weather/reruns in March/CDT
edited because pluses has one s ... did not know that. And it looks weird even so.
LOL. I edited my post to change that word b/c it does look weird.

It's better to ask to agree to disagree. Say: "Perhaps we should agree to disagree on this?". That makes a world of difference, imho.

If you go into "my content," there's a little drop-down top right on the list, and you can change it to "all posts."
Is there any way to search for one of my old posts? In the Sci-fi section, I get the icon that says I've posted in the Lexx thread. I really can't remember when, what, or why, and it's bugging me.
I looked at yours, but "Lexx" doesn't mean anything to me, but you'll probably recognize it.
On mine, it seems to cut off at 1000 posts.

I've pored over some of my "my content" posts, and sections of it will go along in reverse order, then it will seem to be by show, but then something from that show will be elsewhere.
Yes, I canít quite figure out how the posts are organized on the "All Posts" part of My Content. It certainly isnít by most recent first, the way it used to be.
It looks like what would happen if you dropped one of those desk calendars, and the pages fell apart. If you picked them up at random, and gave them to a half dozen people, and told each of them to put their pages in reverse order, and THEN put the one with the current date first, and then all of the other sections at random after that, it would look like "my content" does.

I guess that some of my posts disappeared in the Great Forum Outage of 2004 (I think that that is the reason why I was suddenly listed as thread starter - because my post became the first in the thread) ?. But I'm not sure about the difference between the 450 and 462 posts as noted above.
It's not a big deal - I'm just curious.

I'm primarily a lurker here, and have only made four posts (after years of lurking). Today, I submitted post number four, and noticed the following under my membername: "Warn Status < 0 ( ) 5 >". When clicking on the link, it says "There are no saved notes for this member".
Does this mean I've recieved 5 warnings (based on 4 posts)? And if so, how am I supposed to know what I've done wrong, if there is no note telling me that I've been warned, and what for? Color me confused!

Don't worry, that doesn't mean you have notes or warnings. We've been told the 0 and 5 mean nothing. They came with the recent update. The only part that pertains to you specifically is the ( ) and that is blank. Without any number in the parentheses. That means you haven't had any sort of note or warning.
"Warn Status < 0 ( ) 5 >".
So never mind,
The 0 and 5,
Your status is blank,
Which means you are fine.

Wait, Tubey's still alive? I thought he'd gone the way of clip art and the days when the recappers themselves moderated the various and sundry forums.
SunShine Girl, that was very lyrically said. We should have Tubey reading that from a scroll somewhere on the site.

SnideAsides, as far as I know there isnít one. Seems weird to me, but there it is.

In fact, I heard that Tubey and Elvis are living in the same retirement home under aliases. With JFK.

Posters plus one me, they do
Insane it drives me
Recall, I do not
Anything witty I said
Search, futile it is
SnideAsides asks too
TWoP Howard says weird, no
Longwinded I am
Four haikus to ask, I need
All sound like Yoda
With lyrical post
Shunshine Gal inspires, she does
To whine in haiku
