Threads, Threads, Everywhere!

Postby ValiantArcher » Apr 01, 2010 9:07 am

Come one, come all, petition for your threads here! In light of the recent announcement made by the SO Moderators, and me being the benevolent goddess I am, I am willing to mediate between you and the Moderators for your favorite threads. Come here and beseech me for the life of a well-loved thread. I will go before the Moderators and argue on your behalf.

Sacrifices and/or large bowls of cereal eaten by petitioners are accepted.

P.S. Eat more cereal!

:-o

They're... they're... they're closing the Books! thread? I am overwhelmed with sadness. This is a great tragedy. All the threads are the lifeblood of the Spare Oom!

*gets down on her hands and knees to beg for the life of her favourite thread*

Well, since they all have to be Narnia related, I (on bended knee) request that we have a thread of why the voice of Reepicheep was changed for this movie and that Eddie Izzard should remain as the voice since he is already established as the voice for dear Reepicheep. I think the change was a horrible idea!

**Brings out bowls and bowls of Froot Loops and Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms and Capt Crunch....

**Edit: Read the rules wrong; seems I always do that...so they don't have to be Narnia related. I still want the Reep voice thread opened. ;)

I'm going to start with the fact that I had Chex for breakfast (probably three servings worth ;))
That said... we need the favorite music thread and musician's cafe! If it's too much to have them both, could we combine them? Please? Please? Please?

Well, I wouldn't be too sure about that, AitB. If you've noticed, the number of SO mods has gone down because the section is really such a lot to keep track of, and a lot of mods just can't commit that kind of time anymore. It's happening all over the forum, actually. The main reason for the change is so that we don't lose any more moderators.

But don't worry! I'm sure we will all have wonderful discussions in the remaining four threads! :)

Well, I do love the Fashion and Makeup threads, but I realize that those are not high-interest threads (rarely does a male N-webber post there). Still, if one of them could be featured now and then I think Demeter would receive some generous bowls of fruit loops.

Wait--this isn't a joke, is it? What Jo is saying seriously makes sense. I can totally understand the need for a refocus of the forum. I mean, the idea of having so many threads is so lame. I can barely keep up with them, and paring down and throwing out stuff is so up my alley.

Yay! Just shut them all down, okay?

Dearest Dinah, I do believe there is a thread like that in the section labeled Casting and Character Discussion. Some of the Narnia based threads you may come up with have homes in other sections if you just venture out into the larger forest beyond the Spare Oom.

I am begging (most humbly of course) that the mods will keep the favorite music thread!

Cheerios will not avail you!

(Unless maybe they are honey nut. Hmmm.)

Homemade granola and oats, Alice? A most judicious breakfast choice. *marks down the Books thread*

*accepts the Froot Loops, Capt Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs from Dinah* Since the thread you requested is not under the SO Moderator's jurisdiction would you rather petition for another thread?

winterlife, though I have no love for the season in your username, your breakfast is true and I shall see about a combined Music thread.

Oh, one of little faith, Aslanisthebest! Are you so secure in your belief that it is all a trick to risk offending the mods?

*nods wisely at jowoman's post* It is indeed true that Mods are hard to come by.

You only think that some fruit loops would be offered, Lucy P.? Then I shall think upon your request.

sweeetlilgurlie, you do not ask for my help? There is no thread you are wishing to save?

*considers the bowls of Cheerios, chocolate, honey nut, and plain* I shall plead before the mods on your behalf, Liberty Hoffman.

*departs with the offerings to consider the matter and discuss it with the SO mods*

P.S. Eat more cereal!
