i want to know how to if i can, get a conversation side added to the sfg forum. we only have the one side, and i tried adding the OT to our "conversations" because some of us are well, rather chatty, ummm like me!! **big smile** and a few others, but in doing so, some of the others have left the forum, so i was wondering if we could get a conversation side added. then maybe the other "non chatty" ones can have their "serious discussion" side back. which i am not a real member of that part, only once in a great while do i see something that i really see, or have a real question about. ~Medo

RE: example-OT and Seed Swapping

Hi Medo,

I'll answer, but I'm sure there are a lot of others that could answer too.

Anywho...there is a Suggestion Forum where you can make a suggestion that a Conversation Side be added to the Square Foot Gardening Forum. Then ask that the other members go and add to the thread in support of it.

GW has not responded to any/many posts at Suggestions in a while, but I think in time that they will implement some additional requests that have been made there. They seldom ever just add one item. The last addition I can remember was back late 2006, when there were many new forums added as well as Conversation pages. That was when we finally got The Rate and Review Forum

The sooner you get a suggestion made, and the more replies you have, the better the chances of sometime getting Conversations.

I was lurking a bit over at SFG and noticed there are usually several OT posts there on page one. I'd suggest maybe trying to just hold it to one thread and start it with OT-CHAT-Mon-Dec 1(the date) and then running it up to say 100 posts, or start a new one each Mon or something.

Maybe try and keep all OT posts in the one 'chatty' thread, even if one has something specific to share. I'd suggest them maybe changing the Subject of Posting line within the thread...like I did here.

It's sad that others have left the forum as a result of the OT threads. You might add something about that when the suggestion is made to add Conversations. In the meantime, just encourage everyone to limit all OT to the one OT CHAT thread. You, or someone could make a general request post there, and then keep that post bumped up to the top of page one...much like we do with the Special Instructions for the Seed Exchange here.

Another alternative, might be to invade a very, very little used, inactive forum where all you chatty folks could check in daily.

Good Luck! Until you all can get Conversations, I hope there can be a decent compromise for all of you 'regulars' there.

Whoo-Hoo...That west_texas_peg was already on top of things and had already made a suggestion at the Suggestion Forum...bless her heart.

Suggestion to add (off Topic) Conversation pages to the Square Foot Gardening Forum.
Let's all go let the ptb (powers that be) know it is greatly wanted and needed.
