I just wanted to thank everybody for their understanding while we work on some of the board guidelines.
I have tried to move the last 30-60 day of posts from the General Discussion area to this sub-forum, however, I think I am going to stop there (theres alot of posts!). If there are any threads in particular you want moved, just let me know.
The other item I wanted to discuss is the name of this forum - Chit-Chat. Does this name sound ok? Do you want to have a different name for this forum?
Paul, love the new format. It will certainly encourage more new folks to post, and therefore stay around. Most of my posts on CR would have to be considered 'chit-chat.' This is the place I went to get away from the deeper aspects of my life and work. Then I met a lot of great folks and just wanted to chat and speak and share and maybe even make them laugh. So that being said, I for one, appreciate you developing the forum for us to do that. As far as the name? Chit Chat is what it is, but I am sure some of our more literary folks could come up with something.
Unmoderated Musings? Neighborhood Gossip?
Whatever it is called, it is what it is, and thanks for allowing it.

I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."

What I will do as people respond to posts in the general discussion area, I will move those threads as they come bubbling up to the top of that forum.
Yes, I am glad that we found a way to have all of this wonderful conversation continue. While not related to the theme of this site, it is very important that we have places for community chat about anything.
Personalmente, yo quiero que todos hablan en español aqui. Tambien, pienso que un nombre como bla-bla-bla será bien y muy apropos.
¿Que piense ustedes?
Alright Leo TRANSLATION!!!!!!
I hate it when you put that Spanish stuff in I can't understand. Takes me back to my childhood when my older sister and brother used to spell out words in front of me and later spoke in French just to drive me nuts. Don't you know by now I'm nuts enough????
BTW- back to topic. Whatever works for me and thanks Paul for all the site updates. Man miss a few days and come back and it's a whole new place. Now I know how my husband feels when he comes home from work and I've rearranged all the furniture and password protected the bathroom.
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. - Frederick Buechner
If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles, how can it be called progress?
