How about a General Chit Chat which you could talk about things in General like familys, No off color or flamming as they say just how are you doing today or what are you working on or the boo boos you did sewing somthing.
Just nice friendly talk???
Looks like there is enough interest - I'll go ahead and make a new Discussion called General Chit Chat. That way it won't be buried inside this topic. By the way, anyone can add any discussion to the list.
I agree with wondering about the option to a view unread threads OR even just changing the color of the link on threads that have been completely read by me. That way my eye quickly sees which threads I'm caught up on, and which have new posts. :-)
I did check on this and unfortunately, the software we're using for this site limits us on making changes. We're not able to modify or give you a way to see unread threads or make color changes. I wish!
