What is happening with the approval forum?

I have noticed very few replies to members that are posting great approvals and success. I hope members did not get intimidated with the " thread bombing".

Saw that too. I didn't post my last approval because I figured people didn't know how to respond.

I hope the thread bombing announcement doesn't hinder people from either posting their success stories or people reacting to them.

 

People's stories are important.

 

I believe the announcement was made in reaction to a couple of posters generally not paying attention to the original post of the threads to begin with and posting a generic post in large quantities. (Think of looking at the forum and seeing one name all the way down for page after page as the last reply.) If I'm wrong here, please correct me, SunriseEarth.

That makes sense to me.

I think quite a few comments were steering off topic as well

Thats what happened today i see. 1 pwrson went on a "congrats" splurge. I wonder how many high level contributors only say 2 or 3 words in all there posts. While lower level ones actually give GOOD ADVICE.
Ok rant over from me haha.

Maybe quite a few have gotten into trouble, playing on their phones & MF, while at work, and the constant dinging of email updates caused a situation, hmmmm?Smiley Very Happy

Re: What is happening with the approval forum?

I wish the people who get approvals would place some data points. JMO. There are more CLI threads than Approvals some days. Maybe a sub-forum topic could be created separating the 2, alsowith data points.



My posts are JMHO and what I have learned here. I am not perfect, nor claim to be an expert. Just sharing my experiences.

Re: What is happening with the approval forum?

The thread bombing post scared me off!  I was afraid to post anything at all because I'm not an expert at anything and was afraid I would get kicked off the board.

 

 I made some comments over the weekend and then held my breath when I logged back in hoping I was still welcomed here.

No, this is absolutely not what was meant. Please do not worry, and please continue to post. I'm sorry!
