I guess they want the Gossip to be like first hand news and that is why they named it that? I do associate it with the same things you said though, so I think maybe another name could be found. Maybe someone could come up with something that is better than gossip but not as ordinary as news that relates to TJ. I don't know though I know I'm not clever enough to come up with something better.

Wow! You guys have really been playing with this site since I logged in last night. :shock: I feel the need to click around and see everything! How fun.

*ponders this* Let me think about it some more. My brain's still hazy this morning and i need to go work out to wake it up. I need some fuel! :D Anyone else think of anything, in the meantime? I'll get back to you.

Have a great day, all!

First it was a little odd, but the colours a really better! Thanks! :)
I still have to get used to it by clicking around - like you did, Sherry.

I'm still not thrilled with the black background but I do think this is easier on the eyes than the way it looked before. I also like the little details that are there now, the arrow thingies and such. I haven't looked at it too much but what I've seen so far I like. :)

Yes, still reminding and suggesting about the black background, Sharon; I have a feeling that as mere mods we don't have the whole-board control to change board style (will check!), but we can keep putting proposals. There may be limits to how much change this type of software may permit, but I have visited a board of this type with a grey and blue visual, so some alterations must be possible. I'm sure we ought to be able to get hold of more emoticons too.

Keep the suggestions coming. Obviously.

The other day when TJ's first message was posted and I read that after it he posted again to say hi to 3 of the girls that were online I thought that it would be great to have a little chatbox in somewhere in the forum. Like lot's of forums have and when more than one are online at the same time they can have a little chat over there. Even TJ can use that to say hi every once in a while if he hasn't the time to make a message of the length of the one he did. :P

Do you guys think it would be possible? I know it's not difficult because I did it in my own forum and if you need any help with it I can help you.

I'm a mod and not an admin; admin has control over that one. It depends on what is possible with the software Ben is using on this part of the site. I agree it is a good idea, but would it get much use, given all our time differences? I don't know about any other UK users, but I am almost never on with anyone else.

If there's a strong interest I'll pursue this one to see if it's possible.

mmmm... good point. When I'm online I also never coincide with anyone else. But, this forum will keep growing and at some point there will be people from all around the world (hopefully!) and then it would be more useful perhaps.

Ah catylin. You sound like an absolutely ideal new member. Welcome and big hi. Have you seen the gallery? Or would you prefer to wallow in our newly-posted part one of our fan interview in the articles section? Or just ask for more of anything. TJ never disappoints!

Sofi - definitely will consider that.

hello hello hello!!!!

I have a magnificent idea! Maybe there could be a section where TJ could ask us...his dearly devoted fans...questions. I dont want to sound presumptuous(spelling?) but he seems like the down to earth perfect kinda guy who would like to better get to know his fan base...and I know we would all swoon at any chance to answer any of his questions as he has been so kinda and helpful with helping us to better get to know him.

Good night all :)

Hey Catylin, good to see you making your way around and having fun! You've been really nice about us and we love having you here.

Indeed a brilliant idea. I know this because I *takes bow* have already put it forward. It got a good reaction here and I have put it to management but it's on the back burner at the moment, there are so many things that need doing! Never fear; we'll get round to them all. I think TJ would like doing that, when he has time to think up 5 or 6 questions.

One of these days I wanna try hold a party on here. Everyone around at the same(ish) real time together - we'd need to allow for as much as an 8 hr time difference but it's possible, I've done it elsewhere. People dropped in and out whenever they were available, posting to each other. It's much easier in chat but it works with postings. We gave each other virtual presents (when you open it you can decide what it is, so you never get anything you don't want), played all our favourite music, danced and had virtual decorations, food and drink (no hangovers either and no probs for the vegans because all the party food is what you want it to be). I got the idea for a sofa from that, because we all more or less believed in this comfy party room we had put together, so much so that when a friend and I were online together the next day we pretended to clean up the mess. Picking crisps out of the carpet, emptying dregs out of plastic cups and finding strange stains on the couch. Don't look at me like that, it was fun, do you hear me, Fun!
And wouldn't it be great if TJ could join us, think of that! Woohoo!

What a great idea! A bunch of friends did that in the old days of AOL -- there were 6 of us from 3 U.S. time zones and the UK, and we'd meet every Thursday night and talk and howl -- and there was a fair amount of drooling. :D And everyone here is so much fun -- we'd have a blast.

It was like having a party at home without the clean-up.

I'm in!

That party idea sounds great and I'm in! I did something like that with the people on my bones forum, but instead we used a msn conversation...every once in a while we organize one and we get all crazy about the show and the latest news. Speaking of which it's been a while since I don't do one....anyway Let's Party!
