How's your day?

Recommended Posts

Don't worry about it BK.  I'm on a forum about Organs.  I've seen it get pretty heated on there at times when somebody comes on strong about their favorite make or that one style of music is better than another.

I'm your friend BK .  I like your posts.  Sorry if I've posted anything that's upset you x. 

Btw, I'm one of the resident 'snowflakes' on the forum, as I always try to understand  all sides of an argument and disapprove of sweeping statements made about any groups within society.... 

(I like being a snowflake - although it sounds a bit delicate, which I am definitely not!)

Please keep on posting...

Margie, I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't say anything that might offend me. I very much appreciate your replies to my meagre attempts at " tongue in cheek" posts. I do know I would certainly not type anything that could cause offence to anyone, l would crack one of my terrible jokes or indulge in "All our yesterdays", but my past is fairly boring.. Happy Christmas M.  Barrie xx

Gem,  How do I know when and if anyone is laughing at my posts?? ( don't have any sound effects on this tablet. I'm using a paracetamol tablet).

I wouldnt waste your time worrying about people laughing at your posts or understanding the follow up of posts. It is difficult sometimes when someones answer comes in late and youve forgotten what it was all about. The posts dont always follow what they should, we tend to drift and one comment in answer can easily start on a new drift, sometimes very difficult to understand. Sometimes the answer to a post is er.....what does that mean or thats not what I intended. Just go along with it and you'll perhaps understand eventually.. Or if like me theres a lot I dont understand so I just ignore it. You will find after a while that you like some topics and not others , it depends what your interests are. Manys the time I think " oh thats it I dont think I'll carry on or its getting a bit boring" and I dont post for a while I have a rest and then cant resist I go back. I enjoy seeing what everyone is doing in the city where I lived and other parts of the UK and beyond. 

Carry on posting Beekay you'll get there and it doesnt matter if you lose the plot it happens to us all.

Happy Christmas to you.

Having just read the last 14 posts on this thread and here I am again ! Back in the wilderness, in the middle of the desert of "I haven't got a clue". Just when I thought I was getting the hang of this threads and posting lark, I'm back where I started. I realise I've only been on NS since October, but have progressed  to advanced Nottstalgian. Here's me thinking it was a light hearted forum where you make new 'pen friends' and then wallop !! Too heavy for me. B.

 

Simple rule of thumb to operate by........ If you see/read something you don't like, just ignore it. Move on to the next thread and you'll find something you do like, and you can respond to it.

 

It's not worth getting into heavy arguments; they never have a happy ending.

Up will pop some smart a..e reply to your post usually followed by a smiley face and the words "sorry just couldn't resist it" . Then in my case i read back on my comment and think "how thick can anyone be".

Now now don't take it the wrong way mate. If I came across as disrespecting you I apologise, it wasn't meant that way. I'm just saying it takes all sorts and you will soon get used to it.

Watching the National News on our ABC this morning when they covered a story on the Sausage Roll Song by LadBaby sung by a bloke in a Santa hat that said Forest on the headband. West Bridgford born Mark Hoyle. The Song is now No1 in the UK and supports a great cause.

I wonder how long before Greggs use it in their adverts.

Day slightly spoiled by the Reds losing 1-0 to Dark Strangers at the City Ground

I heartily agree with that John. Another forum I use does have a specific section for religion and politics which you can choose to read or ignore. Unfortunately the format of this site doesn’t seem to offer the scope for that.

 

I think ( without really bothering to look), that there is  (used to be?) a section called 'Have Your Say', or similar.  It doesn't tend to get used.  I'm also aware of some pretty 'heavy' reasons why this site in particular is managed with a 'no politics' rule. But it didn't prevent the site from carrying a lot of political stuff pre the Brexit vote.

 

I'm pretty sure that my position on this hasn't changed.  I try not to start political or religious discussions, but if someone posts something religious or political then there's a judgement call to make.  Do I engage.. or do I allow the comment (which I may or may not agree with.. ) to stand without comment?  That depends on my view of the poster and the comment, and how 'intrigued' I a by the comment.  We're all supposed to be 'grown ups' here and we all have our views. I know that a number of members here who I have a lot of respect for, are religiously committed.  They in turn know that I'm not. ( It doesn't make me a bad person... honest..)   We don't come to blows, but I don't see why we can't have an adult discussion about it all if we wish to. 

 

We've proven recently that we can have some fairly intense political discussions without coming to blows.  I'm sure that Brew for e.g., won't mind me saying that we have to 'agree to disagree' on a few things... but on the other hand 'It's good to talk..' and we get on well socially.  :)

 

Just a word on 'opinion'.  We are all entitled to hold our own opinion.  However, we are not entitled to invent our own facts.  Therefore stating something which is demonstrably factually incorrect but claiming it's OK because it's 'Just my opinion', is a 'No no'.

 

Just my opinion... :dry:

 

Peace, Love and Happiness to All at Christmas.  And the rest of the year...

I knew a should a kept me mouth shut!  I do not disagree with most of the previous posts here.  In fact prior to last nights post I had told Col I would leave it there.  Rather than religious discourse or preaching I saw the discussion more in the light of ancient manuscripts, codes of conduct and how some understand them.  Same way we might discuss the Magna Carta or ancient documents.  I will avoid all such in future.

 

Not at all Dave.  You are a respected, polite and 'gentlemanly' member of this forum.

 

You are entitled to express your view.  You are entitled to your Faith too.  I'm entitled to express my differing view on God, the Universe and Everything..

 

So long as we both do so with respect for the other.. there shouldn't be a problem. Faith, or the lack of... is an intensely personal issue.  In fact I'd argue that faith can't be imposed, and can only have any validity at a personal level.

Phil, you don't need to wade through the word games etc if you go straightaway to 'unread content' or set that as your default when you open up NS.  In that way, there is only the one display of topics (including the word games etc) so you just don't open them up at all if you're not interested.  I think it's a much 'tidier' way of managing things.  Also, I always click on 'mark site read' when I've seen all I want to.  

It would really annoy me if I had to wade through 'all activity' 

I just like this easier way of doing things.   

 

I simply log on then look at the forums and scrooll down to ''Owt Abaaht Nowt', whichis the space I normally inhabit.  From there I select 'How's Your Day?..

 

I also go to 'Browse'. then scroll down to 'Nick Palmer's Music.. etc.. and then 'What Are You Listening to..'

 

I'm just off there now....  :)

Regarding posts veering off at a tangent. Well How's Your Day? encompasses a vast amount of scope for people to relate their experiences. So if we've got say 30 odd regular posters, that means there could be at least a dozen subjects being discussed at any one time. Yes, it can be extremely confusing for newbies to negotiate their way around the site. 

Maybe we should seek out existing topics rather than creating new ones. Just a thought !

Well your sidekick seems totally engaged in word games after berating it, and deriding the participants for years.

Hypocricy !

Its hard to keep on track sometimes.  With my own recent health problems I think I started it here in this thread  because it sure affected my day.  Lol.

 

Then I continued in the thread about health and aiments, because I thought it probably belonged more over there. Not really out of place in either one but it might have confused a newby.  I' ve found this to be true in most forums not just NS.

Sorry for putting a damper on " hows your day" but mine has been spoiled by having to wade through all these posts that go on and on. It doesnt help because the site is being dominated by them. 10- 12 - sometimes 14 per day is no fun having to wade through them. Ive done just that in the past but now Ive had enough, its abouttime someone did something or say something about it. It doesnt matter if I get a notice about this post as I think many others feel the same.

Sorry......

I don’t think it’s fair, though, to say what people can post. Some folks like to post word games or song associations, and although it’s not something I join in, I don’t think it’s a big problem - I just glance at them in passing. Some folks like to post photos, some have a conversation with each other - not a problem for me.

 

When I come on here via my ipad, I just tap “Activity” and then “All activity”. That way I can just whizz down the new posts and pick the ones that appeal.

 

I don’t use the “Ignore” facility because nobody upsets me that much - and even the one’s I don’t read very often might one day come up with a really interesting post. 

 

Live and let live, I say. We don’t have THAT many members!

 

Hope you don’t mind me putting in my two-pennorth, Phil. Not criticising you in any way, jusy saying how I look at it.

Try to keep my meagre posts to a minimum, that way I don't want to bore people to distraction. I try to post a question or maybe a response to others. Please, someone tell me I'm doing it right. B.
