Thinking the forum could be a waste of time


#1
hello everybody.
im thinking is it worth writing on this forum anymore.
yes i do things differently to most people by dressing up to collect for pds.
but it gets results. but ive writen many messages on the forum and not many replies at all.
all i am doing is collecting while im reasonably fit to do so.
if some people dont like it fair enough that is there oppinion.
i shall carry on collecting for pds.
but im not sure about the forum anymore.

best wishes .

Hi Trikeman

It is my fault you are feeling ignored and I cannot begin to say sorry. I am sorry though.

Your efforts are amazing.... ideas for costumes.

Halloween try the ghoul, a ghost or the grim reaper.

Christmas santas little helper and have an elves costume and partly wrapped presents and letters from santa etc
you could also do Divali (the festival of light).
Dolly she can come out for a barn dance easter.
Keep up the good work

take care

It may be because people like me can't work out how to use the Forum, having never done anything like this before! It could well be a waste of time for me as well, have worked on it for nearly an hour and still haven't 'got' it - wondering if PD has really started to affect my basic intelligence as well!

hello tamsin and welcome to the forum.
when i first came to the forum it was like a minefield and i couldnt get used to it.
so dont go away stick with it and have a look around.
im the one that keeps getting dressed up in fancy dress raising money on my recumbent trike.
the dracula costume is ready to go for hallowen and give the kids a laugh or scare

all the best .

Hi Trkerman, like they said, don't take lack of comments as lack of interest, it's nothing personal.

It's true that its not the most used forum out there but it's only going to get busier.

Keep doing what you are doing, its very much appreciated.

p.s. I found the Vauxhall Insignia Forum extremely useful and only made about 3 comments in 18 months

Halloween Trike eh?

Nice.

I don't think the forum is a waste of time.

I admit that it was very difficult to use back on 24 Sep when they were still getting the bugs out of it.

Now the easiest way to use it for me is to click on a bookmark to the "Active Topics" section in my Bookmarks Toolbar, and "voila!" (or "¡mira!" if I'm thinking in Spanish) I'm reading the latest breaking forum news!

It's that simple, and you don't even have to look at all the threads, just the ones that interest you.
