ok, so i know alot of you are upset about 'cliques' and stuff in the board. sooo.. why not solve it? we can do an interview type thing - set up two members who don't know eachother, like eachother, or just don't get along. they can talk through e-mail, pm, or ims and find out like 5 things that are interesting about them, and then we can all post what we find out on a thread. maybe we'll all find out some things we don't know about eachother.

just an idea
if anyone wants to participate, post.

I used to see cliques but I don't really see it much now. It used to be that I would see the same people's posts following one another on a controversial thread as if they had planned it all through PMs. I don't see that much now at all.

Obviously there are people who through PM-ing have become friends and they support each other on various issues. I think when there is a lot of use of the hand clapping smiley all by itself after a post, it gives the impression that we're teamed up and it can be hurtful to the poster who was being replied to. For some reason that is just the impression it gives me.

At this point in time, I truly don't see cliques here.

I am honored to be grouped with Jessica (PuppyLucy) who has a dog named Lucy. I'm LucyLou aka Faye who has a dog named Lucy, but often called LucyLou when she is being especially loving.

I don't see it as cliques as much as just "friends" and my list of "friends" from here grows every week or so...if not more often than that.


As far as the smilies and clapping go, I don't think that is always "friends" supporting "friends" or pre-planned support or whatever...I have clapped and applauded lots of people on here when I like what the had to say, regardless of who they are...
It just so happens, that the people that I have become "friends" with, we have more in common, think more along the same lines, etc...so maybe they get smilies/claps more than others.
And it just LOOKS like a clique or whatever...

I think the way people get to know each other is through PM-ing and email.

how about whoever wants to participate can just pm me (it can be blank) and i'll give them another member to talk to? and then i'll start an 'interview' thread and we can post what we've learned, pictures, stories, etc

Yes...and I think many of us have just pm'd each other about something we read on here...or something we found we have in common through a thread, and it just got started from there.
