I've been doing a little tidying up in here this morning. I moved a bunch of older or less used posts to the archives. At some point I'll go in there and organize that but for now I felt it best to have less dated topics ( often with no responses ) for people to sift through. 

I've also added a "Health and Wellness" section.

As you go along you may notice that something has changed about a post you made or perhaps it's in a different location than you remember it being. 

There's a reason, and it's not anything you did wrong. Or as the old saying goes, "It's not you, it's me." 😁

Sometimes the font may be bigger than like what you're reading now or there's a spacing issue. I'll usually change those simply out of my own sense of aesthetics. Again, nothing you did wrong, just me being a little uptight LOL

Sometimes we'll get a little off topic. It happens, but when there's multiple off-topic posts, I'll try to move them to a thread that already exists for that. For instance, if homelessness comes up under a thread for the Arena, I'll move them to a thread which is dedicated to the issue of homelessness. A year or two ago we decided to start having more long running thread over a period of time rather than dozens of smaller ones scattered across the site. 

Again, no one did anything wrong, but sometimes people, myself included, find it frustrating to read about something they're interested in but have to wade through a page of posts that have nothing to do with it. 

****

Something else to keep in mind is, when you're responding to a post, be clear and concise. If you're making an argument, back it up with facts or reasons why you think the way you do. Citing sources is always good as it allows others to perhaps learn something new. Or shoot down your argument, whichever... LOL. Whatever the case, if you think something, explain why. One sentence, drive-by posting may work on Facebook ( it actually doesn't, I'm just being generous ) but it's not much help here.

I’m guilty of that, I just did it in the article about extraterrestrials being already here in the form of ancient super humans.

You may have noticed some slight changes to the site. I got to thinking that for someone scrolling on their phone, there's a lot of website here. So I tidied some things up. 

  • The more "fun" day to day topics are in their own section now. 
  • Regional and State news are now one section. 
  • I've added a World News section.
  • "Hero Of The Day" and "Hobby Chat" have been sent to the "paused" section of the archives for now. I think sports may end up there as well and we'll have a Buffalo Bills/ NFL Chat in another section because, well, I want to. 😀
  • I was considering a "Science" section, but will hold off on that for now. 

That should satisfy my unexplicable urge to tinker for now.

The "Community Calendar" is back. You'll find events on the sidebar or you can look at ( and add your own events ) by clicking on it in the menu at the top of the site.

The sidebar feed is set to show events up to 10 days in advance. This helps keep things from getting tedious for people viewing the site on mobile.
