I'm a new member too and I like the post 'What did you do today'. I agree with tagwex when he says..

We could be talking away seriously about a gardening matter and a quip could be thrown in and then the banter could start, we are hardly going to start a new topic mid topic just to have the original topic purely on what it was started for. Go with the flow.


Reading this thread made me go back and look at the 'index'. I think there may be too many different subjects. Confused It could be a bit off-putting to have so many different sections. New folks might wonder where to post their queries. For example, say you are new to gardening, want to grow roses and are having little luck. The problem might come under 'Roses' or 'pests and diseases'? It might be a problem with the soil or the site, where do you look then?

As some of you know, I am having problems with the dreaded Honey Fungus. Should that come under pest and diseases, alternative, resistant trees (or shrubs) or even my pet soapbox 'what the xxxx have they done with Armillatox (creosote and Jeyes fluid)?

OK rant over! Laughing Perhaps I should just say 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it!'

Kim as for the Bee forum ill be there for a while as I have many questions and much to learn, looks like I will be bee keeper on permanent job as well as having some at home , I suggested getting bees and seem to have snowballed on me Ah well in for a pound in for a... (I forget the rest)


I was trying to say that ... I have been on the bee forum a while and I cannot imagine that " I " would want to leave it just because I had a certain number of posts, I like it too much. So I was wondering why you would say you would leave this forum when you got to 2000 posts. You have given an answer.... and I don't see how you could possibly be part of the problem. but I am thinking that my own sense of not fitting in is just my problem, as it may just be me that doesn't get all the banter.

The saying is "in for a penny in for a pound".

Sue , good to get another new members opinion.

I shall explain.

You said

So you meant to finish with 'penny', which is actually the wrong way around but contradicted that by saying

Quote:
Hold your horses there I am only a young lad


If you were that young then you would have said 'cent' living in the modern era.... simples really. Euros have been around long enough now to have their own saying. No wonder you didn't get it!!!!

@ Kindred Spirit.

Hey only just spotted your new link. I know I meant to get there last year for the open day but circumstances beat me. Having seen those photos I just have to go now. One question though, where did you get those geographical co-ordinates from????????

I thought I explained it very well. Calm down.
The 'well???' is aimed at Kindred Spirit, when he reads it he will know exactly what I am talking about.

Greengage, I noticed Kindredspirit has a new link (and mentioned it on another thread), At the bottom of KS signature there is a new link to lovely garden pictures.

Anyone who has not seen the new link and clicked on it will not understand Tagwex posts. Of course everyone should take a look but that is a different matter.

Perhaps I am completely off the mark but I think the "well" is probably because in an old post Tagwex discovered where KS lives and even posted the co-ordinates on the forum,

It wasn't long after I had read that thread that Tagwex made a comment to me on another thread, something like, "You've given your location away Kim", It may all be jest but I then didn't want to continue posting on that thread. I find written humour can be easily misunderstood as there are only words to read and no gestures.

Anyway, the above posts are a good example of the kind of posts on this forum that can be frustrating if you are not in the know, but I guess such posts are very entertaining when you are in the know and that may be resulting in some members feeling alienated and some being happy and included.

Just my 2 cent, No , I'm old fashioned, My tuppence worth.

You make a very valid point, Kim. If people can't follow a comment, then it can alienate them. Tagwex. You'll have to change from oneliners to threeliners. What have I said? There'll be no stopping him now. Smile Smile Smile

And yes, I used the Wexford originating co-ordinates on that site. Thanks very much, Tom.
