Slow Down That Bandwagon, Let Me On! : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread

I cannot believe that I am doing this, I really can't. I tried being a regular on Beth's forum for awhile, but was overwhelmed by the volume, it has never occurred to me to have my own forum for cryin' in the beer! But I had this dream, and in my dream it was really fun...

So, what the fuck, right?

Congrats Anita for being the first poster! A brass band is in order. Do you really think high volume? I'm not so sure, me, I think that people have their homes, their forum homes, and why go elsewhere? But maybe I'll be wrong, who knows?

-- Kymm Zuckert (, May 31, 2000.

Thanks for the kind words, and though I don't think that I would want a forum as popular as Beth or Pamie's (don't throw me into that briar patch!), it would be nice if it wasn't a ghosttown.

-- Kymm Zuckert (, May 31, 2000.

Alright, why do my answers not thread? Why do they appear above everyone else's? Is it because I'm on the east coast?

-- Kymm Zuckert (, May 31, 2000.

and I get to be the first respondent!

I predict high volume here also. what *will* you do, Kymm?

Anita of Anita's BOD and Anita's LOL

forums are like journals... they're just addicting :) Besides, you have a pretty large readership, I'm sure you're forum will be a happening place :)

-- windy (, May 31, 2000.

woohoo! It's a forum frenzy! Yer so famous, yer forum will be BIG!

-- Ann (, June 01, 2000.

And the scary thing is, yours will probably be more successfull than anyone elses, because you're Kymm and they're not..

-- Kara Leah (, June 01, 2000.

I was just wondering the other day when you were going to get yourself a forum happening! You must be reading minds.

-- Kay (, June 01, 2000.

What's this, one has to read Journal-L to find out all the news??

Last I saw, you were wondering whether it was a good idea, and then suddenly "six hours ago" you started your forum!
Very unfair. (grumble, grumble)

Anyway, don't count on me to push up the volume: I like to read (some) forums, but I'm not big on participating. Just like mailing lists. Just like, well, a lot of things.

Anyway, I for one am glad to see you do this. It should make for more fun procrastination!

Kymm, you have to use a different email address than your main one that you registered with puts your answers to the top of the forum, otherwise. I use my work email addy to answer things in my own forum, for instance, or you can create a hotmail or yahoomail acount. Just a FYI.

I kind of like my forum. It's small, and fairly easy to manage. The big ones all erupt into flame wars sooner or later. (However, in my latest question, I asked which journallers---of those who put up their pictures---remind you of someone else, a la SPY magazine's old "seperated at birth" section, and I'm expecting some interesting answers to that one. Katie of MISS MERMAID has already found Dave Van's twin...)


-- Al Schroeder (, June 01, 2000.

Aha! Thanks for the tip, Al! I am so obsessive compusive, that the answers being not in the right ORDER was very upsetting!

-- Kymm (, June 01, 2000.

If you build it, they will come. . . and take heart, Kymm! Your forum is already more popular than mine, and mine's been up for two weeks now! :)

Ah, such are the priviledges of journalling royalty.

-- Saundra (, June 01, 2000.

God dammit, people! I just answered the leadership question, thinking i was the very FIRST person to post on this damned board, and now I find oh, no....that damned ANITA is the first, and all hail ANITA, and ANITA is the best.

This sucks. Dammnit!

-- Kristin Thomas (, June 01, 2000.

O, but you were the first person to answer a REAL question, as opposed to a "Hi, um, I'm here!" post!

-- Kymm (, June 01, 2000.

Hey Kymm!

I learned something very important reading your forem! I wanted to know how to fix that ordering thing too, and now I'm full of knowledge.

But Beth's forem taught us all about tampons :)

Can this be the silly forem?

-- Colleen (, June 01, 2000.

Lord knows I have no problem with that, silliness is my middle name! Well, if you pronnounce M-A-R-Y J-O-A-N like "silliness".
