The Dreaded Lull
« on: August 20, 2007, 11:19:08 am »
I hate it when nobody posts anything for more than 15 minutes!! Don't you? I swear I get the jitters and start to go into withdrawal mode! I'll give a prize to the first one who breaks the dreaded 15-minute lull (yes, if it's me, I will keep the prize!) And now, with this post, I have broken it!

May 2019 be better for us all.

he,he. So I saved BetterMost from the dreaded lull not just one, but TWO times this morning alone! I think this calls for a prize. And here's what I'm giving myself. (You too can earn this prize. Just post already!!)

Those lulls are happenin more and more frequently  :(  the powers that be need to do something to liven things up around here.  All that new blood from IMDB seems to have either settled down in Fan Fiction or moved on elsewhere.  Things were hoppin for a bit but no more.   :-\

This is like a paraphrase from one of my favourite films, The Big Chill.

Thanks, Leslie, for mentioning the Open House. Amanda and I hope to get things hopping, start out the weekend with a bang, and juice the Coming Thru chat as well. I'm taking the day off work to just post, chat, and play!! Join us!!

Something is not right   ???  The system says there are 27 Guests on line right now and 16 of them are looking the older thread "so what do we all look like anyway"   ???  How odd is that ?

Heh, Phillip has explained this to us mods,

Generally bots/spiders will sense activity in a thread and will send in a bot to index all information for google etc etc.

So when one of us has gone into to look at this old thread bots have followed. Becasue its such a large thread and older, one bot can't index the thread all on its own and so brings in all its friends to help.

Its nothing to worry about and doesn't mean anyone is spying on us. Just means maybe one person today has gone in for a look at it. I know I go in there every so often to look at everyones pretty pics!

What Kelda said.  :)

Those crazy spiders had me running for my LIFE a couple of months ago. I noticed dozens of them inside my threads and it had me feeling a bit paranoid. But then Phillip, John and Clarissa explained it to me. Those spiders are quite harmless, and they are nothing to worry about. But it's a bit creepy looking, isn't it Dottie? I just ignore them now.  :D

Does that mean you'll have seven years' bad luck, if you break a lull?  ???
