Not new but random

by M_a_r_k In reply to Brilliant Idea ....

I've seen this kind of post a few times before. It doesn't seem to have any consistency how often it's posted. I like the statistics in this one. I haven't seen those before. It would be interesting to see stats for all the discussions weekly.

It's a weekly event.

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to Not new but random

The forum reprint of the Community NetNote has been a weekly event (just like the newsletter) since late May of last year. You can look at the back issues by clicking on the community netnote tag at the top of the thread.

Glad you liked the statistics. If it catches on with more people we'll do more of them.

SG, did you notice that you're "Red Alert!" discussion was 2nd most active? It's stupefying how some of these discussions take on a life of their own. ?

And why are there so many G people on TR? There's a DCG, GG, ITG, JMG, OG, SG and TG (in alphabetical order to avoid ticking anyone off). Apologies to any G people that I may have left off the list.

The G People

by stargazerr In reply to Community NetNote link

ooh ooh ... Do we G People get a cap too <skips>

On a more serious note ... Its a good idea Trivia Geek. I am all for it. Love those statistics. It would be specially interesting to know which discussions were kicked off the Hot Discussions list. I, for one know that the Please Disregard discussion didnt make it. <scratches chin> ... I wonder why ...

G caps

by M_a_r_k In reply to The G People

I thought only the trolls were going to were caps. I do know where you can get a ski cap, though.

There can be good caps and bad caps

by stargazerr In reply to G caps

The Troll caps and the G caps ... I mean the G caps and the troll caps ... What do you know, we could also use that in the impure brigade.

usually in a newsletter?

by jdclyde In reply to It's a weekly event.

This had been coming in a newsletter anouncement. Change your mind on how to handle it?
