Right picture the scene woman/man sitting at their computer turns to their other half or whoever and says " oh look i have found a gem of a site about glasgow oops no its about budgies and all sorts. ...



Oh right, so that's whits puttin folk off joinin' in....ye shoulda said before.....ah'll get Martin tae remove the fifty odd posts that refer tae it.....while ah'm dae'in that, dis sumdy want tae pm me a list o' whit wur allowed tae talk aboot? tongue.gif

I think somebody said earlier that there are too many topics devoted to chit chat. Most of the chit chat does turn into private conversation where readers don't have a clue what's being talked about. I know I have been as guilty as any other in the past of going 'Off Topic'. However, in the past I think we kept mostly to Betty's 'In Masel' for blethering and this seemed to work so much better. All members would post there when they wanted a laugh or a blether, it brought us together more effectively I think. Now before I'm accused of anything favouring one member over another I'm simply saying keeping blethering to one location seemed to work well. There are so many chit chat topics now where personally I feel that I would have nothing to contribute, I also feel most unwelcome. Now as a member who has been on here for a long time how do we think a new member may feel? I'm sorry but those topics often read as though there are coded messages involved, and are most unwelcoming laugh.gif

Just had a wee backward look here .What am I like ,my son will be forty eight this year and I had him near fifty laugh.gif .See, wis that a wee senior moment .?
Melody I agree with you ,I went to some of the other chat sites when they first came up but soon felt that I was an outsider .It's the same on the rare times I go into the chat room .I know some members blether away to me but sometimes ,depending on who's in there I feel like an intruder being tolerated .Believe me I'm not thin skinned so I'm not imagining this ,that's why I seldom drop in for a chat .I think I could count on one hand the topics I do visit and if I do look down the boards and see some names of the last posters I don't even bother going in because I know it will be a load of rubbish .
Angela Chick
Hello,

Well just gonna have a wee cosy night in front of the telly watch some dvds later on. biggrin.gif Maybe have a glass of rose oh i just love that wine. wub.gif
Melody
Aye it's a night for the fireside Angela enjoy pal. smile.gif What films are you going to watch?
betty2
Cards on the table from me. There are certain members who dont come into this thread because of their dislike of me, I know thet , they know that. But do I care NO, Now to keep up with the general chit chat of other members who post in here regularly they do have to come in and read. Fine thats allowed. But cant they see what they are missing out on by being so petty and childish. This thread was restarted by wee mags , and not me so its not me you are slighting . There isnt the gobbledegook postings in here and when they do pop up they are ignored, m and thats why members stick to this thread. This is truth and I have all but named the members who for reasons known only to themselves I am referring. As for coded messaging this I agree with C/mon this is GG no MI5 wisen up.Said my piece and it was long overdue, slowly you are destroying a good website.. Fact not fiction
Melody
I must say that's exactly my feelings also Betty. It's such a great pity as so many people living all over the world have taken pleasure in reading the funny, entertaining and friendly atmosphere of the posts on GG in the past. I personally would have missed the boards a great deal in the past but not now there is little to hold people now.
jakka13
Well said Betty .I sometimes wonder what the worst offenders minds are like .They are ,as far as I'm concerned, sad individuals who don't see what they are doing by trying to divide the boards .I sincerely hope that there are enough of us level headed members not to be put off by the behavior of a few .
Angela Chick
Im in total agreement with all you say betty, the boards are being destroyed by a few and the sad thing is they probably dont even know they are doing it. Maybe now they will sit up and take heed.
betty2
I for one wont be put off by this minority. Melody clearly states that this board is read worldwide, which has been proven to be so, by the members from all corners of the world . One thing I do care about is glasgow a city of which I am proud of. The wrong image is being sent out and I sincerely hope that all glaswegians are not being judged by the offenders.

Let glasgow flourish. aka the friendliest city in the world , does this not mean anything to you cos it means plenty to me. So why not show the world we live up to our claims
betty2
Good nite all , off to see whats on the box huh.gif
Melody
Enjoy Betty.
betty2
Its 4,13 and I,m as bright as a button, thats what I get for napping after dinner. ThinK its time I went shopping and stocked up on some new dvd,s.So the charity shop will be getting the ones I have at present. tho I do hold on to my old time favourites. Thank god its sunday now, I usually have a visit from my brother and then its once again relaxavoo rolleyes.gif
Gallusbisom
What's this? You never said if you went to the Bingo or if you won, (OK that would be yesterday your time wink.gif ) So it's a quiet Sunday is it? OK, if you have a few minutes, a have a pile of washing that would frighten the French, so are you interested? Threw my back out shovelling snow this week, so I have been slowed down a wee bit. What really annoys me is it was only a couple of inches, I could have left it to melt mad.gif but I decided to clear it up. Silly b----r me. Ocht well, what's fur ye will no go bye ye. Vacuuming today was a right pain in the nether regions, oh well been here before, it's just a crampy thing--.
So that having been said, if you have the time to whip up a batch of mince and totties and maybe a wee trifle for tomorrow night's dinner that would be smashing, oh and a couple of gallons of Scotch Broth. The weans love it. Now, my gues is by this time you are thinking "Cheeky B----r), and smiling. I hope so. Orrabest pal. \
