A little reminder about posting

Hi Everyone,

this isn't a big deal for now, but just keep in mind as we get used to the new board to use our markers for posts.... we can't forget to note topics included in our posts like m/c, sb, pg, POM.....

We should try to get that in the title part so people know what they might be looking at. Some people prefer not to read upsetting posts or ranty posts, depending on what kind of day it is, so we should be thoughtful of everyone!


Hugs n Love,

Jodi

Jodi...

I agree, but also a comment. The subject lines are now much shorter than before. Sometimes I have trouble fitting my (m) or (nt) on there! Any chance they'll give us a few more characters????

BUT... when you're replying to a post you can't put anything in the heading - you can only type your message. Maybe have line one with stuff like m/c ment... and then start your message so that people don't have to read farther if they don't want to...
