    Came to this late but it does seem a very good idea which does need a little thought about how it's managed. Do hope it's not derailed and John I do hope you will be involved, it was your idea and you will have much to contribute I'm sure.

    Here's the title page I'd redone fwiw.




    Anyhow, clearly now out of my hands, so, good luck.

    Genuinely sorry John. I really didn't mean it that way, it just seemed to me that starting the thread and getting it made a sticky wasn't that problematic. I've ddeleted my post in the thread I started and defer to you to sort out how it should be done.

    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but Iím not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I have an idea which might improve the gallery, which is already suffering from comments, even if positive ones. Why not have in bold print on the first page, on rabskis first post,

    DO NOT POST ANY COMMENTS ON THIS THREAD. IT IS FOR IMAGES ONLY. IF YOU WANT TO POST A COMMENT OR ASK A QUESTION USE THIS THREAD.

    A link could be made to "This Thread" and could easily be created for Gallery Comments, titled Gallery Comments perhaps.

    Well it's not like someone will die if a mistake or two occurs!

    Also it can be corrected (and improved) as it goes.

    I have read the hole of this thread, and the point I was trying to make, is that the Gallery thread is a great idea. However posts 1,4,&5, should not be there. Although they were probably posted with the greatest of intent, they detract from the whole point of the thread. I'll get my coat now, and say no more.

    Posts 1 and 5 were posted as per the aim of the thread; photos with an explanation from the photographer. They were subsequently edited by the posters because of the flouncing in this thread.

    we are, for the seven hundredth time, waiting for the boss to suggest how to make a thread sticky, but in an improved way.

    The title page (of which there are two to consider above) WILL contain some basic instructions for those who, like yourself, have no fucking idea what is actually going on, but post anyway.

    Actually, I can read, but I hadn't appreciated you wanting Stalinist control of the thread based upon your original idea.

    Read your (and I paraphrase) "how dare you start a thread whilst I'm designing the title page" post. Its a grand flounce.

    No it isn't. You just want it to be because you like the idea of making the accusation, and you think 'flounce' is an attractive word that gives your post some credibility.
    It's no worries to me what you think either way. I do however, know what I think. Yes it was my idea. Yes, I had contacted the boss to get his ideas, and yes, he said great but hold on a moment. He posted it here for all to see.
    Whilst waiting, I considered the idea and produced an idea for a title page which included the instructions I thought might be needed to stop the thread being de-railed. Rich storms in and pushes the red button. I am annoyed, because as was predictable, the thread he starts immediately gets derailed with comment posts, and anyway, I do think it's better to do something well, even if it takes time. Naturally I do think, yes, that I was doing it well.
    Rich and I are friends btw. We can both be arses. He's said sorry and I've pm'd him ditto. AFAIK we are now waiting to see what the boss sais. If all is well, I. or ANO ill restart a new thread with a suitable title page/instructions soon.

    Is what ACTUALLY happened.

    You should be a journalist. Never let the truth get in the way of a quick soundbite huh?

    Hilarious stuff - grown men, some of them old enough to be my dad, arguing like 12 year old girls.

    Could only happen on the Wam - it's what makes it such a 'special' place.
