hey - if you're throwing shoes I'll take a nice size 8 Carlos Santana stiletto.



You can hang on to the other one to throw at me later emoticon

It is possible the person has stopped posting here at all, but there was one person who had very odd threads, beginning with an unusual title, and very little words/detail within. Haven't seen anything by them since at least Christmas, if I recall.

And, no, you're not the only one who noticed that notation

I know just who you're talking about. I even emailed him about that.

It is irritating! You can report it as an inappropriate thread. When it asks for an explanation, you can type "Yes-no thread in cafe". Some of the threads mentioned have been around so long (many responses), that I personally haven't bothered to say anything. I did report one such thread, though, and it was removed.

I know that can be annoying, but not everyone has a lot of time, is a good typist, or just a great communicator.

Some people want to give their support, let you know they read your thread, but just don't know exactly what to say, so don't focus too much on it, think of it as a compliment.

Best wishes to you!

Unfortunately as long as those threads are still in the Forum, people will answer. I look for new subjects to discuss when I post in the cafe but if there isn't anything, I am guilty of the one word answer.

Hear hear. There should be some forum monitors that can delete those threads—and change the message to let people know why their gazillion messages have disappeared. Although this is the community chat, so things are probably a wee bit more casual here.

I agree, I hate the ridiculous amounts of "what did you eat for breakfast this morning?" "how many minutes did you exercise today?" "how many points did you get on the wheel today?" I like to browse through the message boards to help people/answer questions and weigh in on certain topics. The topics with thousands of one-word responses that are always clogging the first few pages on the forums belong in the game forum.

I bed you'd be happier if you tried not to get so worked up about this. Lot's of people can't read directions/can't follow directions. Do your best and move on.

I agree with you, especially if you spend ages typing something out in hope to get some responses, you get excited when you see someone has replied and then the anger when you realise it's just someone giving a 1 word answer! argh!

But am I the only one that reads the tops of the pages in each spark chat room?

It says...






General, fun discussion about a variety of topics. Please post one-word answer and game threads in the Game Room, not in the Cafe.



So, I get this little twitch whenever I see one word answers in the cafe.

What are some things that get on your nerves, but you try REALLY hard to not come across as a big, mean jerk?
