You Rang?

    I think I'll keep a foot in both ponds for awhile too.

      So far the forums here are much more user friendly.

        Hi. I am going to two time and stay in both forums for now. We will see. 

        Nice to see so many familiar faces.

         

        Me, too - can't abandon RWOL just yet.   Though, so far, this does seem to be pretty easy to navigate.  We'll see.

          Hi everyone.  Spam over there looks terrible today  Moth is bumping threads but that gets old.  I give up on reporting spam.

           

          I'll try things out here some too.  Wish they (rw) cared what is happening but honestly I don't think they do.

            Bumping threads is a valiant thing... but it doesn't do any good.  Plus, alas, I don't open spam threads, but I do open 'real' threads with new posts.  Only to find the new content is the word "bump". It is easier just to scan past the spam ones.

              I bumped some threads there, but they were really RRs I had not read or commented and they were on pages 2 and 3!  WTF?  The Mammal thread was almost on page 4.  The spam is crazy!

               

              And it's mostly the BF.  I can post and find threads in the MF, MRT, and MCM forums.

                I prefer to only bump threads when I actually have something to add, since I'd get confused when a post was listed as having a new comment but it was just a repeat or a bump.

                  I stopped bumping threads a long time ago  It is frustrating and just as fast as we bump they post a dozen more spam threads.  At the height of spamgate over the spring  the wf was getting seven pages of spam an HOUR.  No one can keep ahead of that

                    The only kinda crappy thing here is not being able to upload pictures.  But I can live with that, I suppose.

                      Holy Spam Monster today....thanks for creating a new "space" over here.

                       

                      I will lurk around and hope that things get better.

                        Mandy, I think you can upload pictures.  I see the same little icon we used at RWOL and I've seen a few pictures in some other threads.

                          You have to link to pictures that are hosted elsewhere on the net. Some possible places to do that are listed here

                           

                          And we talked about this on another thread, not clearly marked so easy to miss

                            Hi RWOL'ers.

                             

                            I'm over here semi-reluctantly checking out RA because I just couldn't take it any more when I clicked on the BF this morning.  Cry

                            Just when I get back into reading & trying to post regularly, it falls apart.  I feel stupidly betrayed - the BF was one thing I could always go back to when I needed motivation & to talk to other runners.  

                             

                            Ah well, I least I found you all.  Thank you Facebook.  

                             

                            I was sdnyc99 but RWOL was pretty much the last place I still used that username, so I'm getting rid of it for good.  VeganAng is something that at least has part of my name in it.  

                             

                            Is there a dailies thread?

                              I like that the Reports section lets you input your runs.  I wonder whether it can read from your training log too.

                                Yes. I just post to the log and my miles are listed on the report.
