Used to be part of the moderation on the boards back when I first started posting here, but now not so much. I'm not sure they even look at the boards anymore unless someone reports something. So there's always that option.

I just posted this in a thread about Gabi but on second thought, it more belongs here.....I was agreeing with Irish about the facts of DOOL.

IA! And it's because I like the facts, and some of us want to see the source so we can check it out to see if it's true, that it's disturbing to me, to see a thread with gossip and rumors and some say spoilers, but won't furnish their source so we can see if it's TRUE or not. Anyone can spread hearsay.

This board use to be a place where you could rely on posts be able to be verified if posters wanted to do so, but now it's becoming a joke, with people starting threads about themselves and their thoughts on what Days is telling them. I want to discuss and have pleasant debates, not mean hearted/spirited ones but this is an open forum and it's up to the admins on this board, to allow what they please.

OK, off my soapbox, just wanted to say IA with you. :mrgreen:

Well what I posted on spoilers and rumors are very much true! :| And this is not about spoilers and rumors, it's about the same topics threads produced, regarding what it is shown ;)

Just logged on. There are three threads about Ben:

"The Voice in Ben's Head'

"The Voices in Ben's Head"

and "So Ben is not actually cured"

Tell me that's not redundant.

GUILTY!!!!! GUILTY - GUILTY!!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

And I did say on my post that I did NOT see the earlier "voice" post ----I swear I looked on the postings before I did mine and did not see "voices"----dang---- Now if I post THREE TIMES "I'm sorry I duplicated a previous posting" will you forgive me? Now PLEASE know that I'm kidding and not being snarky or nasty---- and I kick myself when I see that I repeated someone else's earlier post.... and I can't get mine deleted...

Idea for board management. If a second “new” post is identical to another post, notify poster and ask if they want to continue.
This is similar to what happens when my reply is ready at the same time as another- or just after another. I can then make a choice as to go ahead and reply or not.

I'm sorry. I wasn't meaning to target anyone or be nasty. It just irritates me that threads I've commented on or started are arbitrarily deleted with the explanation there is already a thread on the subject, while other topics can have several threads all on page one.

Honestly, I did not actually look at any of the posts I mentioned because it always seems whichever one I opt to comment on is the one that is passed by other posters and my comment/opinion is somewhere on page 4 while the other threads remain in active use. I have often thought of typing my comment and copying & pasting to identical threads so I can simply stay in the conversation. It's frustrating.

I have been becoming increasingly frustrated with this site lately and was venting. I truly didn't mean to be nasty to you or anyone else making an honest oversight.

Candy I can sympathize with you. Sometimes I just stop posting for awhile when it stops being fun. ;)

There really are multiple threads addressing the same topic. That's why I suggested one thread per day, and we can discuss any and everything in it. :D
