OK GANG:

Hate to be the bad guy here, but I'm getting many PMs from members stating that this has turned into (for several people) nothing more than a POST COUNT RAISER POST and I honestly think after 57 pages it might be getting the folks who work hard at typing a bit weary of seeing post counts climb with one word replies. I can't say I disagree.

It has had a long run, but around midnight tonight EST I will be locking the topic, I can't image after seeing the words like home, money, car, and many others come up over and over that it hasn't ran its course.

Sorry if I'm bursting any bubbles here, but I have to understand the sides of everyone and I understand that many people have played but it is starting to push leading posters who have contributed lengthy and frankly more constructive content to a place further in the postings and I agree with the PMs I have received that it's time to close up shop on this one.

Have fun until midnight.

i didn't know there was any competition going on for number of (meaningful) posts.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Perhaps change to 6 or 7 letter words ?

Haiku's are fun - if you want to start a game :)

Beemaster stopped game
told members it was all done
some people complained.


Sweeeeeeet :)

New Thread though if anyone wishes to play, please start a Haiku Thread. Simple rules: 5 syllables, 7, then 5 again. What do you think? Making it topical (aka beekeeping) really spices them up!

Oh.... P.S. Kathy, you'd be surprized some of the stuff comes by my PM Box - it is an interesting mailbox for sure.

John, I saw the word game on a reptile forum I visit and thought it would be interesting to start it here. Never did I think for a second this thing would take off like it did.

I too didn't realize members would use it to get post counts up, if that's what was actually occurring.

Have a good one.
