I just scan until something catches my eye and then read the responses until I feel the need to move on. I like that there are new personalities to learn and a newness to it all. I hope that we aren't unwelcome and that you will want to be part of the "larger church", Skylark. As you can tell, we like it here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

<b>No no no!!!!</b> Y'all are more than welcome here, veganchick, muppetcow. I hope I wasn't misunderstood... I just wanted to get this rant off my chest, and I'm not upset that we have lots and lots of members now. I guess I'm just a small-town girl who dislikes rush hour!

<b>Yes, Life2K</b> , I'm happy to sit in the pew next to you... provided that I can still get up and move around "as the Spirit leads". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> (Continuing with the church analogy) I tend to feel freer to dance when worshipping in larger churches and church conventions than I am at my home church.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
So with that said, I fear that I <b>must</b> leave y'all for at least this weekend. This is a matter of academic survival. I might be back for the chat on Sunday night, but I can't guaruntee that. Oh goodness, the chat... what a zoo that may be this Sunday!

I agree that VB is a little less personal now. I think its bc w/so many new people here its hard to get to know any one of them too well right away. In the past when a new person came on we greeted them & got to know them individually bc it was one person. Since so many joined at the same time, I feel like I havent had the chance to really connect w/any of them, but I hope to get to know all you knew people soon...that'll make VB feel much more personal agai! Glad you're all here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Skylark, maybe Michael forgot to include you in when the negotiating went on with Yvette owner of VegWeb. You really need to take that up with him. We were directed here when we went to log on. Were doing our best to adapt here, I didnt want the change because there are a lot of fowl mouth people here. Its not a family site like VegWeb. But hey, if I want a place to call home I have to except it. I don't believe we intentionally won't to break up your happy little home here, but for your own sanity, you would probably do well to just except the change. You have not seen everyone yet which means if you cant keep up now, then you are in for a major headache. Yvette had 13,000 members...granted not everyone are active members, but as they start checking in they will also be directed here.

That's alright Kathym, I think Sky was just having a moment of panic. She's over it now, and you know we will grow on her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
We are one big group now. WE are Family. Dang, that makes me want to sing that old song. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

I disagree. I haven't read anything posted here by any member that I would classify as foul mouthed. I believe it is a family site as well. You'll see that the moderators do a very good job in making sure that <i>all</i> members are respected; even when they disagree. And, if someone really doesn't care for another's opinion, which happens from time to time, you always have the option of putting that member on your 'ignore list' thereby customizing your VB experience.<br><br><br><br>
Please, if anyone ever feels that a post is not within the guidelines, click on the button to report the post to a moderator. Most likely if one is offended, someone else may be too.<br><br><br><br>
Lastly, I'm sure that Skylark didn't mean to offend anyone. As with the group from VegWeb, there will also be an adjustment period for the members that were here at VeggieBoards prior to the merger. With any change, there's always going to be adjustments, accomodations, shifting, etc. Some folks may not adjust and choose to leave. And that's ok; it's their option to do so. I would be surprised if some didn't drop off. After all, you can't please everyone all the time.<br><br><br><br>
The point I'm trying to make is that eventually, everyone will melt together and the transition will appear seamless. I'd imagine that eventually, new people coming on board after the fact will probably not even know that there were ever two groups unless they go hunting through old posts.

Hee hee...the veggieboards are full of Fowl-mouthed people, even though there are very few on here who eat chicken or turkey or fowl of any kind...<br><br><br><br>
Sorry, anal English dork rears her ugly head...darn those homonyms! fowl...foul...ok, I'm a dork...<br><br><br><br><br><br>
(I really don't think the boards are full of foul-mouthed people, but I tend to swear like a sailor, so...)

okay, let's all lighten up here, folks. i am 100% <b>certain</b> that skylark didn't <i>really</i> mean that the new members from VW should stop posting. it was a joke, like. really, there were times here at VB when it was so quiet you could hear crickets creaking in the forums, and this is a big change for everyone. things will go much more smoothly if we all take a few deep breaths and find our "moorings" in this new space before going off half-cocked and taking offense at things that were intended to be joke.<br><br><br><br>
also, kathym, if you find something on these forums that you consider foul, remember that the guidelines laid out here are pretty clear...if something wouldn't be appropriate for prime time television, then it's not appropriate for here, and should be reported. the moderators and administration here aim to make this a safe and comfortable place for everyone who visits, but it takes co-operation and vigilance on behalf of the members here, too.

For those who feel overhwelmed, you have to accept that fact that you will <b>not</b> be able to read everything (and if you do I feel sorry for you). It's been a huge adjustment for me (as I'm sure it has been for the other mods) because I feel a responsibility to read everything that's posted. I just can't do it though. So I scroll through the new threads and pick out the ones that interest me. That's really all you can do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
None of us make any money from this site. This isn't our job. If you find something that's inappropriate it's just as much your responsibility to do something about it as it is ours.

yeah guys, don't go thinking you shouldn't post whatever and whenever you want just in case "gee someone might think there's too many posts"<br><br><br><br>
there's no such thing as too many posts. well unless the server blows up but it hasn't yet so we're good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
honestly, i think once everyone gets used to things it will settle down a bit. and i'm sure once Michael's got some spare time he'll go over everything and work on adding/rearranging forums to make things more manageable, he's just busy. so be patient, don't wrack your brain trying to keep up, just go with the flow and wait for things to calm down on their own<br><br><br><br>
pick 2 or 3 topics you really want to stay caught up on, focus on those and anything else you happen to check out in between is just a bonus, you don't have to reply to every post on the board. i'm one to talk i know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
i'm really enjoying the boards right now, i think it's cool that it's this busy, there's never a dull moment and there's interesting new topics popping up all the time, keep it up guys, don't hold back on our account
