fairly land

Postby Ajit » Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:30 pm

im wondering why "my story" ( viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1711 ) was moved to the "fairy land" section?

I think this whole section of fairy land needs to be redone perhaps?

name it something like "random" "on your mind" or something similar.

Gimp's description of General Discussion wrote:Feel free to talk about anything and everything in this board.


Why am I not free to talk about anything and everything in the General Section?

If we aren't going to reorganize these two sections, please at least redo the descriptions of them

If it stays this way, i think it should be nicknamed "Unfairy Land" :|

OH MY JEEBUS. IM GONNA HAVE A HERNIA THAT WAS SO FUNNY.

You made a pun. Puns make me do that sometimes.

Anyways, you're right, I saw your thread in General Discussion just to find it was moved there. I found it kind of odd that anything would be moved out of General Discussion, unless it was a tutorial. request or something else obviously misplaced.

I moved it back to general discussion and I also find it, not random.

didn't i try to point this out before? no one listened to me. Remember this?
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1577&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

we just don't need the pointless stuff. but i'm kinda confused about the fairy land thing. you can't really tell whats fairy land and what's a general discussion. it'll confuse everyone at the forum. it confuses me. i think you should probably just get rid of it. or, you should change the way the sub sections are organized.


doesn't anyone remember that?

yeah, a sub section would be great...
maybe have a general GIMP discussion where u talk about everything about the gimp, and a fairyland-ish one for "et cetera" discussion.

by the way, I am back from the Czech Republic if no one's noticed... :D

don't be, i should be the one apologizing, you see I had to do fairy land because many users were on their linking spree and many silly posts containing non-constructive content, obviously it makes a bit of a bad image for new users visiting the forums. We didn't really had time to explain, and I've forgotten to post the topic because I've been doing other things in real life =/

Like today I was stuck on the kitchen cooking :| also got 2 fingers burnt (only the tip) :(

Which is why this confusion emerged all of the sudden (I think)

Cheers, Llama

PS: Judging by the posts, it looks like this should have been in fairyland!
