My wife recently began following a forum on one of her hobbies, and after lurking for a while, I encouraged her to sign up and join the forum so she could post comments and take active part in the discussions.

So, I come home one day to find her really annoyed.

"What's wrong, honey?"

"Oh, someone had an issue on my forum, and I knew the answer to their question, so I posted it, and they ignored it!"

"Maybe they just didn't see it yet?"

"No, they reposted the same question - and then two people posted the same answer I did, after me! I swear, it's as if no one actually reads the posts!"

She couldn't understand why I began laughing uncontrollably when she said that...

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Same thing happened to me the first few months I dared to post here on BGG. :shrugs:

When the regulars don't recognize the user, they tend to ignore them!!

Except us in Chit Chat, where we are constantly on the lookout for fresh meat!!

That reminds me, there's a couple of CC newbies whose souls I need to devour. I have waiting a couple of days and no one has claimed them.

so...............they're MINE ALL MINE!!!!!!!!

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!

kiss

It isn't that people don't read posts, it is that people don't read responses. So it is like trading in Settlers where you only deal with the active player...

Dunno, someone talking about something, I guess. Don't know why he isn't complaining about game rankings like everyone else.

That's what she said!


Jeffreyac there's no sexual innuendo in this context. Tell your wife to say something else and then post it here. Or do we have to place a call to pdclose?

TL, DR.

By the way, anybody notice how people don't read threads any more? It disgusts me.
