NEW POLL! Removing Board Topics from Forum....
« on: August 01, 2017, 06:42:04 PM »
(UPDATE: 9/1/17) Poll has been removed! Thanks for the feedback!)
Don't have a clue as to why the "Question" is showing up white? ??? ? Highlight it and you can read it.  :dunno:

I would appreciate getting as much 'in put' as I can on this. If you think the Forum as to many boards to choose from, please feel free to cast your vote. Been trying to have a little something for everyone but it can get overwhelming for some with so many to choose from and maybe stopping them from posting all together? I'll be having some more 'polls' with more questions so be patient and hope you can participate!


I've also made this so 'Guest' can cast their vote so feel free to.


Thanks!

Even though I voted 'yes' I thought I would mention that almost all of the topics are useful but as  you mentioned there are a lot of them and some might not know just where to start! I still love this board though and all you do here.  :13:

I voted "yes" too.  The topics are great, but a lot of them can be combined which will help move the conversation along.  As it is now, you might not see the actual threads inside each topic.  Those threads are the conversation starters.  I might not click on the "divorce" topic, but if I see the thread name where Elizabeth is having a rough time you'd better believe I'll reply.  It takes a long time to click every topic to see what's going on.  I imagine it is doubly hard to scroll through when using a smartphone.

Thank you ladies! I appreciate the info. :) It would actually make it easier on me also to have fewer topics.


Meanwhile, I'd appreciate anyone else's feedback (and vote) too!


Thanks again  :039:

Jeanine, you have a great forum here!  I've enjoyed the camaraderie and learned a great deal along the way.

I dont have a clue how you would condense topics without a whole lot of work..  for that reason I vote no, to leave it as it is.

 You can just group the topics together.  For instance, all the empty nest themed topics could be under one "empty nest" heading.  The topics you have now would make great threads - like our empty nest marriage, enjoying your empty nest, an empty nest while being single.  I think those types of threads would naturally come out as members discuss what is going on in their lives.


You could also combine "staying healthy as we age" with "menopause" as both relate to health.


Gardening, travel, fun things to do, movies and books could be combined as hobbies.


All the pet topics can be lumped together as "pets" instead of breaking them down into minor nuances.

I voted yes Jeanine but I really like them all.  There are a few that could be combined but that's a lot of work.  You do what you think is best.  Please keep Pets and The Grieving Room.  Some of us still need to talk every once in a while.

I'm a newer member, though I've been following a bit before joining. At first, I wasn't sure where to start, but that could be because it's been years since I was part of a forum. I especially appreciated the post for newbies and guests.

I voted yes, but like many of the others, I feel that even though there are a bunch of boards they are pretty useful. the only problem I have is that there are so many that I find it hard to get through and read them all.

Just want to thank everyone for your input! I have been 'pruning' the board a bit and combining some topics here and there. I've also eliminated a lot of 'old' post from years gone by (I have saved them to maybe bring back here and there).  Still have a bit more to do but getting there. Thanks again and I'm taking down the poll.  :039:
