See this is why I think it's a shame that daily chat isn't as popular as I once was, mainly since the introduction of the Chat facility. I'd never had got to 250 posts as quickly if it weren't for that, and we really did post everything about our daily life. These ' ' kind of posts could be frequently seen and ' lurky from worky' was another for those if us who were often on catching up on our friends we'd made. That was hiw I came to feel part of the community and get to know other members and their families. The mods were always frequent posters in those threads too, so they got to know newbies that way, then when you got your 250 posts and got access to the private area you knew loads already about people and were generally well known. Becoming part of the community of CNT makes it much easier for any mod who organises a coop to feel safe in the knowledge that she knows who you are.
I do know how those who struggle to make the post count feel as I can't even make the minimum post count to take part in FSOT on other forums and that's usually only 50 posts and I certainly know how to talk, it's just that this was my first real forum and I have made so many friends that even when I'm not spending much time online I have to pop in here and have a nosy
Maybe we should make a real effort to resurrect daily chat so that new members can get more involved in the community of Cloth Nappy Tree
