Re: Changes to the board.


Well, I'm not as sphinx-like as all that. I was looking for an amiable place to post some poetry, read some poetry and chat from time to time. Simple (but not always easy.)

Look, ma. A talking sphinx.

Anyway, the point about post requirements is moot. Here too our way strikes me as more authentic. Three years into it and still no quotas.

Re: Changes to the board.


I want to be sure members are okay with the board's new configuration vis a vis page views. Now, not logged in visitors, what I am pretty sure includes the bots, see ads. Logged in members do not. Yesterday, the 22nd of the month, there were 1,150 page views made by visitors not logged in. 138 such views by members logged in. The first did not count against credits the board has purchased for a space free of ads, something logged in viewers are free of. A significant savings. Just checking to make sure everyone logged in is okay with the action taken.

Re: Changes to the board.


I support the change. Why waste premium credits on search engines and bots? Logged in Runboard members can't see the ads, whether they are premium members or not, and I think that is a fair compromise.

Re: Changes to the board.


Thanks for speaking up. My confession is that when I first come to the board, not yet signed in, I see the ads. Appearance distasteful. But I got surprised a couple of months ago by how quickly premium credits ran out. It was because of the not logged in page views. I don't feel like purchasing credits for people bot searching and not playing or, at least, lurking with interest in proceedings.

Re: Changes to the board.


Notice, please, the medallion in the board's banner area. Seems our board has been voted Board of the Month for September, '11. Pretty darn cool. I think on the award and I think on the board and I think the award must have something to do with content. I'll go with that.

Congratulations, board buddies.

Re: Changes to the board.


Today, Saturday, is the day I devote to catching up on the really important posts. Everyone's creative and discursive posts. I had to work, just got home. Once a year we invite the public to our facility, people interested in honey bees. Before hand preparation is intense. On the day of the "field day" tendance to the needs of a few hundred people equally as intense.

I will be a little late in getting to everyone's posts. We are all very good about avoiding the pro forma, obligatory response. It is something else that distinguishes us from other poetry boards. My rule is to respond brain alert, not brain dead. Kind of brain dead right now. But everything is marked. I will get to it.

Re: Changes to the board.


Thank you, Tere.

I meant to tell you that I have seen three species of bees, two species of wasps and five different kinds of butterflies in my yard this week (and the Monarchs are migrating through).

Plus I saw five deer cutting across my pasture this morning (would that be considered a herd?). Don’t usually see more than one or two at a time.

Also actually saw a pack of wolves in the pasture. We have a lot of coyotes around here, but one morning my wife went out and saw what she thought at first was either a pack of stray dogs or coyotes except they all looked exactly the same except for their color. She swore they were wolves. Our neighbor called us because she heard my wife yelling at the ‘coyotes’ to chase them out of the pasture. My wife told her that they were too big to be coyotes and she was convinced they were wolves. Yeah, right, we all thought…wolves in Texas. So our neighbor called some friends and they had also seen this pack and were also sure that they looked like wolves. As it turns out, due to the big wildfire here, someone who raised wolves had let them all loose to save them from the fire and now they’re roaming around the County.

The drought here in Texas has changed the patterns of everything...all kinds of trees are dying, no turtles or frogs this year, still waiting on the geese, but hundreds of crows and buzzards and snakes. And now freaking wolves! Jeez...what next?

The world is going nuts.

Gary

P.S. Happy Halloween (Samhain)

P.P.S. Happy 7 Billionth human born on Earth today. Like I said, the world is going nuts.

It's a new year and with its start, I am closing off this Board Business thread and starting a new one. This thread will remain on the board for archival purposes, but the new thread is where the updates and action will take place.
