what would people think of a geek thread? i'm thinking kinda general, so as to encompass computer geeks/gamers/people who play dorky card games like munchkin and gloom (i only say dorky because i play them all the time, and i like to be self-deprecating)/anything else you could really be geeky about. 'cause i'm geeky, and i'd like to have other people to geek out with. we could even have geek-offs! (oh, that was geeky. i wallow in my geekdom)
May 18 2006, 12:03 AM
I'd be totally up for a geek thread. But then again, you knew that, tyger, right? ;)
May 18 2006, 02:14 AM
tyger, I'd be into it.
May 18 2006, 03:13 PM
really, zora? i never would've pegged you as the geeky type :P
so, now we need a name. and media whores or abfab? i mean, i think it could fit either place
May 18 2006, 06:31 PM
we should have a how'd you come up with your screen name thread.
May 18 2006, 11:39 PM
Ohh I like that idea culturehandy - I'm often wondering why people choose the names that they do.
May 19 2006, 01:54 AM
I think MW would work.
Maybe something referencing RPGs?
Oh, and we used to have a thread like that culturehandy. It was called "What's in a name?"
May 19 2006, 07:02 AM
whatever happened to it? I just think it would be interesting to know. Any thoughts about starting anew?
May 20 2006, 03:50 AM
I'd like to. It was neat.
Also, I thought of a name for the geek thread. Let me know what you think: "Wanna see my D-20? The geek thread."
May 20 2006, 02:37 PM
well, zora, as i'm at a complete loss for a thread name, i say you should go ahead and start it with your name.
May 20 2006, 04:15 PM
Okay, I'm putting in Media Whores. (And I always want to pronounce that as "hooers" after reading Preacher)
May 22 2006, 02:36 AM
what happened to the trading stuff thread? i can't find it
May 22 2006, 11:08 AM
is it ok to post in every thread in a forum to bump them up and make an annoying one
go the hell away?
can't say i'm enjoying to pm's soliciting my presence in such thread either WTF.
May 22 2006, 02:21 PM
I have done that in the past. It can feel good, but you can bump twenty posts and all that idiot has to do is bump one to wreck all your work. But if it makes you feel good, go for it.
May 22 2006, 06:28 PM
I wish I could have found out what "rebookie" meant, speaking of the name thread. That word goes into my brain sometimes. "Rebookie"
If s/he DID ever post what it meant, I didn't see it.
May 22 2006, 08:00 PM
Pepper - you too huh?
Bumping - some people like it, others don't. For people who use the "Last Day" or "Last Week" view it doesn't make the troll thread go away, it just makes our page full of Bump. So from that point of view it's better to actually find something to say in each thread.
May 22 2006, 08:35 PM
mmhmm. wonder what exactly he found so incredibly interesting as to neccessitate private messages to keep us from missing it. whatever.
i did try to post something relevant each time. nothing spectacularly interesting, just on topic, ye know, so as to make the bumping less obvious. seemed like a good idea at the time.
May 22 2006, 10:16 PM
Well I didn't even notice you'd bumped, so it did work! You mean to tell me that strangers talking about their own balls isn't the most fascinating thing in the world to you?
May 22 2006, 11:13 PM
hey, do we have a thread about cars? i'm in the market for a new (used) car, and i could use some advice, since it'll be the first time i've bought one on my own.
May 23 2006, 12:10 AM
the jamu dork's thread
gave me an idea for a new thread in the OBOH forum that i thought i'd run by you all... how about a thread on alternative medicine (homeopathy, acupunture, etc.) whaddaya think?
May 23 2006, 08:35 AM
I have a question and got no one else to ask and since I din't see any place for just random-general questions, I'll ask here.....
is it possible to receive someone elses emails? I got an email from some guy and in the header it had the TO and FROM and SUBJECT and DATE but the TO address was NOT my email addy????? it was addresses TO a yahoo.co.uk addy..... didn't see my email addy on it anywhere and it didn't have all the stuff that a FORWARDED email has, so I don't think it was forwarded to me.... I'm not sure why it came to me.....
May 23 2006, 10:20 AM
Voodoo - there is a 'Bust General Knowledge Base' thread in MW, you might get more responses there.
As for your question: It sounds dodgy, but I don't know enough about computers to be of much help here.
May 23 2006, 10:26 AM
Voodoo - At one point there was a computer thread up in MW too. But I'll give you my two cents here. I think you were on the BCC (blind carbon copy) list. No one can see who is on that list when the message gets sent. I use it for mass mails because some people don't want some other people to have their emails. Those emails look like they were sent from me to me but everyone still gets them.
May 23 2006, 10:38 AM
Thanks for the info....
May 23 2006, 11:12 AM
anyone? alternative medicine thread?
May 23 2006, 11:23 AM
midge - i vote yes....
May 23 2006, 02:26 PM
midge....definitely yes....I'm nearly exclusively alt healing, so go on ahead and start it.....witty thread titles are not my forte.
May 23 2006, 04:23 PM
How about a play on "you make me feel like a natural woman"?
May 23 2006, 06:13 PM
great idea polly, thanks for the feedback all!
May 24 2006, 09:02 AM
how do i update my profile?
May 24 2006, 09:49 AM
sassy - click on the "edit profile" link in the leopard spots to the left. Easy Peasy!
May 24 2006, 07:48 PM
This is getting fun..... anyone seeing the pattern..... just pushing garbage down....
May 24 2006, 08:18 PM
May 24 2006, 08:35 PM
pushing. garbage. down...
May 24 2006, 08:54 PM
Eh, I still hate bumping. You think someone has said something new when they haven't and then it's just us against the t**ll in a war to see who can post the most/fastest.
I just really hope the new software has an ignore function. . .although I'll miss the t**ll donation fund.
May 24 2006, 09:19 PM
I don't want to post just to bump, so I'll ask when do y'all think they'll be getting new software?
May 25 2006, 03:06 AM
Where is the Birthday Busties thread? I could have sworn I saw it recently, but could not find it for the life of me.
May 25 2006, 04:10 AM
It's over in F&F, bumped it for you.
May 25 2006, 06:50 AM
damn double posts. i wonder if we're going to be wondering about the alleged new software for years?
May 25 2006, 06:51 AM
i don't mind fun bumps. it's easy to take two seconds to say something witty & make it worth opening. but if it's being done merely to push down t*o*l threads, i think it just feeds the community irritation level. better to ignore. helpful bumps are of course lovely.
is there a coupon or discount thread? i often want to pass along good deals, internet shopping whore that i am. i have one now for $45 tix for spamalot on b'way!
May 25 2006, 09:34 AM
hey, does anyone have objections to a Veronica Mars thread? some folks have been discussing the idea over in the TV thread.
May 25 2006, 04:45 PM
May 25 2006, 08:25 PM
Mando, I'm all for a coupon/discount thread.
May 26 2006, 06:47 AM
catsoup, how bout i put it in ab fab? but i'm brain dead today, help me come up with something better than "have i got a deal for you!" ... which is tres lame. except i do prefer thread titles that sort of expressly tell what they're about.
May 28 2006, 05:43 PM
Um, fellow Busties? Heh, heh, could we stop feeding the troll?
May 28 2006, 08:01 PM
I'm with Obe. We gotta cut the shit,ladies.
May 28 2006, 08:39 PM
there is, however, something wrong with hasseling people about something they do not share an interest in. if you can not see how much we don't want to hear from you and how much you're turning us off from your cause, you're blinding yourself to the truth on purpose.
May 28 2006, 08:45 PM
you can smiley face me as much as you want you filthy motherfucker. i love you as much as i love a hangnail. fuck off.
and that's the last thing i will ever say to you or your kind. cross my heart and hope to die the dirty sinner that i am. word.
May 28 2006, 08:47 PM
God loves you pepper!!!
