<<piss-up in a brewery>>

Just returned to Bettermost,Kerry, and seen your post! Guess your a Brit like me, or has this expression 'crossed the pond'. Anyway I share your anger at the bloody academy, and your outburst made me snigger in a very evil manner

Best Wishes, and thanks for a much needed giggle! :laugh:

Hi Samrim! Welcome!

and welcome to everyone else too!!

Kerry is an Ozzie... so he knows piss up in breweries quite well!  :laugh:

But I'm a Brit (Live just outside Glasgow) and there is a few others too... most notably Miss Saucycobblers!

and also we have a new one - Miss Susiebell too!  ;D

There is a thread in the social events area - about the eurobrokie event in London last year (I couldn't go unfortunately but did get to speak to some people over the phone)

If you are new here be aware that moderators move and jerk your posts around. Not a very "welcoming" thing to do.
Can't say as thats ever happened to me!
All the moderators here have been as kind as can be and very welcoming.
Sorry you had a bad experience though.

If I'm correct, Wishes is refering to the time I started a 'Vintage Affection' thread using my posts along with dottie's posts that had been initially places in the Affection thread in Anything Goes. The response was overwhelmingly favourable and dottie had found a cornicopia of similar images, so we decided to split the thread. You can check out the first 3 pages of the vintage thread for confirmation:

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,9350.180.html

When doing so, I missed moving 3 related posts and was criticized for it by this resident. When I was informed of my omission, I tried to rectify it, but obviously I was not able to please Wishes, who had erased his own post, and therefore didn't have his post moved at all.

Yes, moderators occasionally move posts, but it's hardly something that occurs frequently. It might also occasionally happen that a thread is more appropriately placed in a diff'rent forum. In such a case, the original poster is asked if he/she minds about the move, and, if agreed to, a message is left in the former forum directing people to the new placement of the moved thread.

To say that posts are jerked around is quite misleading, and as for how welcoming y'all feel, well, that's for each of you to decide for yourself.

Hello everyone! :D

My name is Sharon. I'm logged in since 8 days and have done 62 posts at the picture threads.
For me it is easier to "introduce myself" by doing something...just jump in the scene.
But now I thought its the right time to introduce myself here.
I'm 37 years old, female and living in Germany. My friend Dottie brought me here and I'm very glad
to be at this wonderful place.

greetings from Germany
Sharon  ;)

Thank you Dagi and Meryl!

Ich denke hier zu sein bedeutet in einer großen Familie zu sein,
wo jeder den anderen respektiert und versteht! Das ist ein schönes Gefühl.
Grüße nach Bayern Dagi!

Danke Pipedream für die Begrüßung aller Neuen! Somit also auch mir!

To be here is like to belong to a big family where anyone is accepted and understood.
