    I was just suggesting that breaking the BBO Bar topic every month or so would make it more "user friendly" for those of us inclined to check in occasionally. What I'm getting from you guys is that I'm reading the thread incorrectly.

    So, nevermind. I'll just stop checking in there.

      Pam, I get the not getting "the bar" because I often don't follow it either. When I pop in there, my first thought is "huh???" I don't think the "bar" has any topic that could be identified easily, unless you use the most common replies which is a lot of "good mornings." I have accepted my inability to keep up with it!!

        Oh, please don't do that. The bar is...sort of like it's real world counterpart. The people you experience while your there are the people that are there for that moment in time. What is shared in there is usually just light banter. Sometimes something personal is shared, because of it's friendly nature.

        The bar was started at the suggestion of another member...which for the life of me now, I can't remember his forum name. (I'll have to search that, because he really deserves kudos.) He had visited a similar thread in another forum and gave me the link. That particular bar actually had some rather intellectual conversations going on. His point was that that particular thread lasted quite some time because of the camaraderie the conversations created.

        Thing is, it is unlike other threads where there's not a single topic that is the "point" but more of a checking in place to say "I'm around, even if I haven't posted somewhere relevant"

        And just like a real world bar...there's multiple conversations going on all at the same time.

        So...LDS is correct...it's not a motorcycle relevant thread. I feel it does contribute to the friendliness of this forum.

        And.....every.single.financial.contribution.I.pers onally.make.to.this.forum.is.labeled......"BACK RENT....BBO BAR"

        Because I feel it's worth keeping around.

          Good description Miss Proprietor!


          I'll also add that actually the bar is broken into three threads, not exactly an annual breakdown, but there are three sequential versions.
          (With the older versions of the software when the thread got too long it would seem to start to bog down and Bugguts would "move" to a new location. Either that or she'd try to skip out on the rent! )

          Maybe it's time to relocate again? I think there's stuff growing in the cushions of the corner booth now anyway! And the mounting for the brass pole is getting a little loose which discourages use.

          I'm sure we can make arrangements to convert your lease to a new property if you wish Buggs.

          In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

            I agree that the bar is not for linear thinkers/readers because it has multiple discussions going on at the same time in the same thread-space. When I've been absent for a few weeks, I just go back 4 or so pages and start reading forward. If there's a topic that I'm interested in, I'll go back further to follow it forward.

            Think of it as a running soap opera. You can check in occasionally and get the big picture or check in daily/hourly/minutely and be part of the conversations.
