User Topic: What the heck is that all about?

Question  Posted: 3:04 PM, January 16th (Thursday), 2014View ProfileEdit MessagePrivate MessageHomepage

A couple of posts on the Thread Killa' thread got me thinking about how some of the goofiness here in F&G may seem really odd to folks and keep them from joining in all the reindeer games, so I thought I'd start this as a place where folks could ask, "What the heck is that all about?".

One question that comes up frequently is about the Thread Killa' thread itself. What is that? What's the purpose of it?

A thread killer is someone who posts on a thread and kills any further discussion. The thread eventually ages off the first page of the forum, falls further and further back in the page count, and eventually disappears into the virtual ether.

The goal of the Thread Killa' thread is to be the last one to post on it. That's really all there is to it. So people chat about random stuff, crack jokes, and try to get the last word. All of the thread killa' threads so far have filled up (a thread is limited to 1000 posts) before being killed, and then they get locked.

Clear as mud?

So... what makes you scratch your head in F&G? Is there anything that makes you wonder, "What the heck?" or say "I just don't get it."

Well, I didn't know what the bus thread in NB was about until the Houston g2g, but that's something different .

I feel like we are all gathering around the camp fire for NIK's story hour. (*Please don't tell us to get off your lawn*)


AKA Moo

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Ooh - an! That's an excellent point. For anyone who doesn't already know, you are considered "on the bus" in the New Beginnings forum when you have been celibate for 6 months.

I'm sure NIK tells excellent stories, Moo.

Frankly, I think they've figured out that it's US that seem really odd.

Just sayin'

I am not sure I want to get it, sometimes.

My question, can anyone start SPF if they are up early on a Friday? Or is that only Moo's job?

I've started SPF before, but it was quite a while ago. Anyone can post to it (hint,hint all you lurkers).

It's usually Moo who starts it. I think it's because he doesn't sleep.

Robo-Moo perhaps?

And NIK? Can I bring my dog?

That's because Moo goes to so many g2gs that he can be in a different time zone at any given moment.

Yeah but Kernel you are freaking awesome at it!!! You outdid yourself last week. Thank you!

I want to know what the heck the deal is with NIK's lawn and why she's harassed about it?

My lawn? Well...

I MAY have gone off on some members (cough - Ama and some other youngsters - cough) who were sassing me about how young they were. I MAY have made a statement about "kids these days" and I MAY have posted a pic something like this...

...and the resident Wisenheimers made sure that stuck. Crabby ol' NIK yelling at kids to get off her lawn = comedy gold, apparently.

Thanks for clearing that up NIK. That is comedy gold

And I read it as President Wisenheimer and immediately thought you were talking about Moo.

Not a question at all, but I just want to say the unscramble the word game for dummies is one of my favorite threads even though I don't post to it. I have just sat and laughed myself to tears more than once reading that thread.

Aw, shucks, thanks Dixie! I subscribe to a lot of funny sites on FB and save them up over the week. (Yeah, I am that much of a dork…. )

Ah well, hubby's her person anyway though I'll do in a pinch...

So, how big a yard we talking here? Postage stamp? Half the lot? Half acre or multiples of? Wait, you're in Iowa, right? Lots of space out there so I'm betting it's big enough for LOTS of SIers along with the aforementioned campfire.
