    Thumbs up Re: Giveaway Week 1 - January 7th

    I don't have any trouble finding it but I'm disappointed that it is not truly a weekly giveaway - more like a sporadic giveaway (I wonder if that is part of the trouble with members finding it - they find it but think they haven't because the current week is not posted?). But I love precuts so I click every week to see if there is a new one. I've won once & hope to win again soon. thanks for the opportunity - it's appreciated.

    Finding it is no problem...knowing if it is still a go is the question. I am SEW glad get it sew... so anyhow I am glad you have gone Week 1 and yes as some of the others have stated maybe removing old posts might help. Keep smiling!

    Old quilters never die, they just go batty!

    I was helped by your explanation in the first post, but maybe making the current weekly thread a sticky thread for the week (or longer, whatever the case is) would make it easier for newbies to find.

    Thank you for your generosity in these giveaways...it's so awesome.

    Congrats mnmsmom! I agree with craftyrad. I'm also glad you started over with the week numbering.

    Smile Re: Giveaway Week 1 - January 7th

    I can find it easily now. As long as there is a number on it so you know which one to answer is ok with me. I can see not deleting them right away as there are some good ideas other people could use in the answers. Congratulations to the new winner and enjoy your prize.
    Thank you MSQC for even giving us a giveaway. If someone is lost because they are new, All they have to do is ask and they will be told how to get there. That's how I learned. Maybe putting the week that's new in Bold text and the rest in regular text is ok by me.
    You all do such a great job for us, Thank you. Nice work! lol Hugs, Jan L

    About finding the weekly question or topic ..... I feel the suggestions ckmama made, above, would be an easier method to follow to encourage more individuals to participate & join in on the giveaway theads . Some of us are not as computer savy as others.

    I too can usually find it by checking the "What's New" in the community posts. Sometimes it takes so long that I ignore it. The ladies have good ideas for continuing the give away. Deleting the old posts would be best. Thanks for not giving up. dmt

    I agree with this, lock or remove the thread if possible and start the new "weekly" thread. Sometimes you do have to do some searching to find the right one and, especially to someone new who doesn't know that more often than not, it isn't "weekly" so they aren't sure if they are responding to the right one or not.
    This is so generous of the MSQC to have this giveaway and with your new billboard you will probably get many more members! I applaud you for working on the "growing pains" that come along with the continued growth of your business!

    I've just started using the forum and I'll admit it was confusing to find. You may want a link on your main website "Missouri Star Quilt Company".

    What I found helpful was having it in bold and capital letters. It took me awhile to distinguish which was the main post, so maybe labeling it "Main Post" :-).
