Morning! Just incase GG wants to say hello xx
GG only uses evening forkers- that's why she doesn't like combined one
Ohhh ok potty didnt know, why whats happened ? please excuse me as i have not been around for a while and not fully clued up, iam aware there was a vote to amalganate both forkers thread to make things simplier to keep track ... . .. . .. soory if i have missed something here .. .?
Sorry mabe thats my fault Thought GG chatted here too x
No not a problem lilly, at the end of the day as long as were all happy communicating mostly about our passion for gardening it does not really matter, some may for what ever reason may feel more comfortable using a certain thread ... dunno ? morning forkers came about due to a clique of people who would not let others IN so to speak, in the end they broke away to do their own thing elsewhere . .. . ... obvoiusly MORNING FORKERS was born, personally i dont have any issues posting on here or not BUT i wont ignore those of you on here ... . . ..
I've only been on here about a month, and everyone has been so friendly I wouldn't want to upset anyone.
And extremely helpful too, very grateful
Brumbull - it was like this ....
I'm an early riser and often I'm the first poster on here in the mornings, but it's sometimes been difficult to find the Morning Thread - sometimes it had disappeared way back a few pages - and the same thing happened in the afternoons - lots of time was taken trying to find the Evening Thread. So I suggested that we amalgamate the chatty thread - after all it was mainly the same people posting on both and the same conversations were flowing from one to the other and back again. Sometimes both threads were going at once with the same discussion at the same time which was very confusing and involved Detention!!!
Anyway, when I suggested it not everyone was keen so I did nothing. That was a while ago.
Then last week Verdun and some others raised the subject again and it seems that quite a few people were in favour - I'd been out for the day so took no real part in the discussions, but when I got back I read the favourable comments to Verdun's original post, and his suggestion that I should start a Hello Forkers thread, so I did.
I don't remember anyone saying that they weren't in favour, but I may have been mistaken.
Everyone seemed pleased with the new thread, then a WUM called Penniesfromheaven appeared and tried to cause confusion.
(Pennnies is aka Diddydoit4u who had been on the forum for a while, initially just posting about his gardening and offering advice, but of late he started making comments seemingly designed to ignite sparks - some were downright offensive). He disappeared for a while but as soon as Pennies appeared Diddy's Let's Chat thread reappeared - a bit of checking up and some comments made by him on there and The Pennie Dropped so to speak
It's a shame that the mischief-making by Pennie/Diddy lead to a confusing start for Hello Forkers and seems to have put Gardengirl off.
I hope that she'll visit it again - she'll find that it's the same people that posted on Morning and Evening Forker threads.
I suggest that if she doesn't have the time to read what was posted in the morning then when she looks at the Hello Forkers thread she just starts at 6pm - that will have the same effect as when she used to visit Evening Forkers, as the rest of us just switched threads and carried on the conversations we'd been having on the Morning thread earlier.
I hope she'll give us another chance - she's very welcome
Dove thank you for this, this penniesfrom heaven sent me some PMs ! i will not repeat what this person said, i completely understand your comments, the WUMs well we've had a few and know doubt we'll get some more, i suppose it justing making sure the newbies are aware because as i see it the WUMs seem to try and involve mostly the newbie posters .. .... . . ? personally i dont mind where i post if it keeps all smiling .. ... trust me life to short.
Getting shorter Brumbull !!!
Well done dove. Glad that's out in the open.
I also suggested one thread at least twice, but no one was keen so courage failed me.
Also, the thread that broke off and went elsewhere were nice people and they let me in with no trouble when they used this site. They have been unfairly critised in the past. It was just clashes of personality.
Ahh well never mind
They were nice people were they?
"Sue, re GW, you got it
Thought you were one of the good guys BL, able to have a foot in both camps and maintain an open mind.
Busy best to live and let live.
Clearly everybody is happy here. I am aware of some mischief making but why? Why would someone from another forum want to spoil this one?
We have had some nice non garden threads as well as garden ones.....purrfect.
I tried another forum before this one and it was very highbrow, elitest and non welcoming. Every comment was analysed and criticised. Here we exchange ideas, advice, experience and humour on an equal level
Just realised I'm posting on the morning forkers but it's fine.
Verdun . .. ....... your cake is waiting on the other thread, ive ran over here and iam now out of breath ... ....
I know......just eaten it.
Dove, they were and are nice people, and there are lovely people here too, but here gets many more people and some are much nicer than others. You know yourself there have been a few strange ones here recently. I like people in both and it's true that I do post on both. You obviously read the other one if you picked that up. You did post on it some time ago and decided you prefer here, you are one of the sensible nice people here with lots of good advice. I am a good guy with a foot in both camps, I never really wanted trouble or a split but people I liked went to the other one. I've also met some of the people from both so I know I like them.
