Red face A Raffle Thread Apology

I apologize for not waiting at least a month for the other raffle threads to drop off the front page or from the memory of the forum before posting mine.

I didn't mean to clutter up Happy Hour.

Sorry.

You didn't do anything wrong. Apparently we were having too much fun and had to be slapped down. It seems this is the New Way around here.

First, these are games....and their Fun...., so they belong in the Fun House

Second, when there are a bunch of the same type of threads, people complain that it clogs up the 1st page. Although it is nice that people are willing to give others something for free, and make it fun, the Happy Hour isn't where they belong.

FUN HOUSE:
Here's the area for silly game threads


I would consider a raffle a game of sorts, so it is the right place for them.

This is not "slapping" anyone down....we have an area for games, and all game type threads will go there. Same as we have a DirectTV/Tivo sub area and all DirectTV/TiVo posts go there.

I'm curious as to how they went unnoticed for almost two weeks, though. I'm sure someone brought it to your attention, but I just find it interesting that it took so long.

You're right, of course. I apologize for being a hothead about it.

It's not that they went unnoticed - it's just that they propogated. If there was only one, it could be considered a Happy Hour thread - an anomoly. Two, maybe the same. But, now we have many of them.

Because there are so many, they are taking up what is, for many, the entire first page of the HH. They are game threads, with rules and prizes....not conversations, so they seem to belong here. It's just practical.

This is not a punishment, it's organizing the forum. And, as new things crop up that should go here, they will be moved as necessary.

And, for those of you who insist it's a ghetto and nobody will find it - change that thinking. Use it. Post here. Put the raffles and games in your sigs. Make it work for you. It's not going away, so you can find a way to make it be something great, like the HH has turned out to be. Or you can complain about it with no resolution, if you are the kind of person who likes to do that. This could be the section everybody goes to when they want to have a raffle, play a silly game or whatever else you guys come up with. It should be fun!
