The lighter side of the mountain

I love this one!

And Phillip, I second Roland's comment. I am blown away on a daily basis by what you've created here.

I really like  The lighter side of the mountain maybe with a subheading that says something like
"Games, Puzzles & word play of all sorts"

As always Phillip you impress me! I also still LOVE the idea of an art board where those artists amoung us like could display their work for the benefit if all.  Sheyne's and Mandy's drawings, Ray's  cartoons, Brandon's original photographs.  I'm sure their are other hidden artists here at BetterMost as well.

Well, except that "games, puzzles and worldplay" does not describe the ILE series, which is none of the above, IMO.

But an art board would be great.

I disagree just a little here.  The ILE threads are exactly the kind of word play used in threapy, with children especially, to draw out emotions and associations.  A lot of  group counseling, especially in area's such as grief counseling, use this free associative technique.  We use it quite a bit in the hospice setting where I volunteer.

OK, I see what you mean. But when I contribute to the ABCs or acronyms, they seem to draw on a different part of the brain than the ILEs do, for me. Generally speaking, they're more verbal than emotional.

But your comment is interesting. I guess you could consider all of the threads -- for that matter, all of these forums -- as a form of grief counseling. I don't mean to sound flippant, Victoria, or to equate what the bereaved go through in real life to what BBM viewers experience. But really, I think it's a form of grief, in part, that brings us here. It's like we have to keep working through it, and working through it ...

I have renamed the forum and slightly changed the description.  I'll leave the child board concept out of here for the time being just because of my concern of diluting the forums by having too many of them.  We can re-evaluate this in time if we need to.

BTW, welcome to Roland who is now a moderator here.

FYI: I have no power over the order that the moderators appear in.  The software decides that for me and I don't seem to have any power over it.  I try and let each game-master moderate their own thread, so if anyone needs assistance in this forum, you should contact the moderator that adminsters the game you have a question about if possible.

Thanks!

Forgive me for being so uneducated, but what, pray tell, is a child's board? I am in the dark here.

As for the topic of the thread, I don't mind them being under the same roof with a name like "the Lighter Side of the Mountain." That kinda keeps it all in the same family nicely.

A child board is a forum that sits inside of a another forum.  If you go into the BetterMost News & Welcome Center, you will see two examples - Say Hello... and Q&A.

This is the response I gave to Amanda on the Thread "I am Sooo like Ennis" just a few moments. I thought it might be more useful to repost it here.

By the way,  this doesn't seem so "light" as in the "lighter side of the mountain."  But, it's a good topic.  Thanks Roland.

This is the point I've tried to put across to Phillip from the beginning. My threads have more in common with each other, and less to do with games. Even the retitling to Lighter Side... still suffers from a subtitle that doesn't at all reflect the essence of these threads. As a matter of fact (figure of speach, of course) your new(?) thread dealing with "loveable subtle details" is more kin to these threads than the more popular threads on this forum. Anyways, as Phillip suggested in a PM, i think, this whole experiment in cyberspace is barely 3 months old and still trying to adjust to the new and ever changing realities of it's clientel. The members roster has increased by nearly 50% since I made the move here some 4 weeks ago. (there were 181 members then!) I believe the thread "Notice: Construction Season" is still a worthy place to posts one's thoughts on this subject, SO WHY am I going on & on here? ??? - silly me  ::)

I think we are approaching the time when I am going to make some changes in here to clarify who is running what game because I am seeing duplicated threads and we're nearing a page two in here.  It looks like the child forum approach is in our future here, and a clearer idea of who is administering what game is becoming necessary.
