    Generally Speaking

    I'd like to take a few minutes to make a request - please pay attention to where you are posting some of your threads. If threads are placed in the correct category, the search engine works so much better. I move threads when I find them in the wrong area, but original posters should be aware of what they are doing when making posts. Some of the worst cases usually fall under these three categories listed blow (along with their decriptions). Just because it says "general" in the title doesn't mean they are all the same.

    GENERAL DISCUSSION - If it's about quilting but don't fit in any other category, it'll fit here

    General quilting, sewing and related topics go here.

    GENERAL CHATTER - QuiltsBy.Me is new - what's cool, what should be fixed, what what what

    This should only be topics about the Quilts By Me site.

    GENERAL CHIT CHAT - A place to talk about anything you want, but just not about quilting!

    Prayer requests, new babies, good morning threads, non-quilting or sewing related vents, etc. go here.

    Help make our forum work better for us by posting under the correct header. Thanks!

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

        Bumping this up because there are still a LOT of people not posting in the correct area. Prayer requests, baby announcements, house sales, personal stories not related to quilting or sewing belong in GENERAL CHIT CHAT not GENERAL DISCUSSION.

            GENERAL CHATTER is for Quilts By Me subjects ONLY.

              Re: Generally Speaking

              Maybe the real issue is the name of the categories - Like maybe name it "Quilts by Me Chatter" and General Quilting Discussions" etc.

              Just a thought is all.

                Not something I can change, or I would. Still, the descriptions have always been in place - if people would read them a bit more closely.

                  I'm new. Thanks for the guidance. I follow the same philosophy about speaking.

                    Is there any way you could glue messages like this, that never go out of style, to the top of the list? I came on this one by accident but since I am new to the forum it is definitely something I need to know. Thanks for the tips
                    Okay so I'm not awake. I turned the page and low and behold there this message was again. Someone smarter than me was on the ball.

                        Bumping this up because it seems many people need a refresher/reminder lately.
