Floating gently on a cloud....

Hi All!

There seems to be a problem in the Teen Forum of multiple posting...in a big way! I was just wondering if there isn't some way to prevent this...

I have tried putting a notice in the teen forum about it and I bumped up a notice on it by Marilyn but I don't think many have even read either post.

It doesn't seem to be a problem in the other forums, I go more and more to Corner Pub and less and less to Teen these days.

If anyone knows a way to get this under control, please do!!

The other thing is when people(again in teen) put "please read" next to their titles in the subject space. I don't know about anyone else but I find it rather off putting and un necessary.

Anyway *jumping off soapbox*, I'd like to know what all of you think. I'm not sure that this is the right forum for this...apologies to moderator...if it isn't, please put it in the appropriate forum! Thanks!

Oh Sharon, you are the moderator...thank goodness you are sooooooooo patient!!

Love and hugs to all,
Lizzie

I thank you once again ESP.  This is still a problem in teen, although it has gotten much better.  I'm not sure how to control this either...perhaps e-mailing some of those that are doing this?  Inform them when we reply to their poems?  I'll keep thinking.

What about locking some of them...then unlocking them and replying to bring them to the top? Are you concerned with the same poem being posted more than once..or more than 2 poems at a time by the same poet in a short space of time?

Sharon, it's people who post like 5 poems of theirs at one time that annoys me...
How do you lock a poem....is that a moderator thingy?

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Yep, ESP, locking poems is a moderator thing.  So Marilyn, Jer, and myself have the power to do so.  So, if we decide on locking some of them, you could let us know when you come across something that should be locked. Since I know that although I read most of them, I don't have time to read everything.    lol, did that make any sense at all?

Er Krista, how do you decide what should be locked...lol..you made a little sense...yeah, I think I got what you were saying! Funny, such a brilliant poet has trouble making a sentence that makes sense... Anyway, lets just hope that the problem lets up soon!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

LOL, well coherency has never been one of my strong points.    btw, thanks for the compliment.    Well, I think we should wait for the lovely Ms. deVine to respond and see what ideas she may have on the issue..
