YOU ARE POSTING TOO MUCH!!!! People, <i>slow down.</i> This isn't helping me get through the last couple weeks of school. I know, I know, it's mostly my problem- I have a hard time staying away, but if y'all didn't post at the speed of light, it wouldn't be such a big deal.<br><br><br><br>
I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but can we have some kind of "50 posts per day per member" rule? Some of our newer people's posting rates are simply insane.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I'm kidding, I'm kidding!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
But I'm not.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I'm halfway kididng and halfway serious, how's that?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
It's great that y'all are here, but the old VB was much more managable. I don't want to go back, really, I don't, but I feel sort of like I'm drowning now! Auuuuuggghhhhh!

I don't want to complain because I think y'all are awesome. I've not been this excited about meeting new people in a long time.I don't want to spoil your fun-- fun is, well, fun!<br><br><br><br>
Case in point: I was gone for ten minutes, came back, and it told me there were 538 new posts. My apologies, but that's just ridiculous!<br><br><br><br>
*hugs* Don't go away! I don't want you to leave!

There are just a whole lot more people. Maybe you should just not expect to read everything, Skylark?! I know I didn't, even back at VW, where there were fewer people.

I don't even begin to attempt to read everything, which is kind of sad b/c it seems like everyone on here is really cool. I could never read all of vegweb, either, and I'm sure I missed out on some neat things, but it got to the point where it was either quit my job and ignore my friends and read all of vegweb or pick a couple forums and focus on those.

I never could, even pre-merger, keep up with <i>everything</i>, and I'm not expect to be able to do that now, either. I guess this kinda feels like the difference between a small church of 100 people and a megachurch of 5,000. Sure, a megachurch can do more stuff like have a baseball league and own a radio station, but I get lost in those places!<br><br><br><br>
I guess VB feels a little less personal to me now.

If you think for one moment you are going to hide in the masses here, forget it, Little Girl. We tend to turn the hounds loose and find people who don't post for a few days. You are part of us and we are part of you. Let's party on!!

I'm sorry you feel that way, Skylark. We did kind of barge our way in here and take over everything. Hopefully with time, the boards will return to something resembling what you guys had before where everyone knows everyone else and it won't seem so impersonal.

I'm reiterating that cool sentiment for you too SkyLark... We don't<br><br>

No, not trespassing at all!! Don't you VW's even feel a bit unwelcomed..please! I've already made some great friends. I'm so glad this happened. There used to be spots sometimes where VB was a little slow...almost dead depending on the hour you were here. But now, never a dull moment!!! It's like one big house party!!! I need a refill...

It feels overwhelming to me, too, but what is nice is that most of the new posts are responses to preexisting threads, not all new threads. That makes it easier bc you can just scan, say 10 new posts in a thread you've been reading, or if you know you already find a certain thread not for you, you can skip it altogether.<br><br><br><br>
I used to read about 90% of everything, and I'm realizing I'll have to be choosier.

I know what you mean skylark. I fell asleep at 8 tonight (long, busy day) and woke up not long ago at 12:30am; straight away I got online and came here, and now I don't know when I'll get back to bed.<br><br><br><br>
Being in such a different time zone can often make it worse..... being asleep while everyone is posting throughout their day, and then having to catch up in the morning.<br><br><br><br>
I could change my waking hours around to try and match (definitely a sign of addiction there), but Winter is coming and the nights will be getting cold, and I'd also miss the beautiful afternoons we have been having here.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and of course, everyone I interact with probably won't want to adapt to my time-table. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

it is overwhelming to me too, it i also felt that way at vw. i'm never able to even read 1/4 of all the posts, mostly because of lack of time, but my internet connection isn't helping any either!<br><br><br><br>
but it's always fun reading through so many interesting threads! never a dull moments on the veggieboards!<br><br><br><br>
btw, kreeli, i don't envy you! how do you keep your sanity? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
