START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Calling For Input from Our Co-Hosts & Members August 31, 2005 8:39 AM

You are one beautiful & busy lady, our Coz

Im thinking of stopping the threads that carry all petitions in a bunch. I've been thinking about it, and it seems our members have stopped participating in the fun aspects of our groups because when we only see "Petitions & Actions" on our Care2 Connect headings for the group, we often don't click to check, thinking maybe we've seen it before. And theres so much more to us than petitions & actions, but we see that heading so often that any others are obscured & lost.

But if we pin each petition or action to the main board, each individual petition will get more exposure if it is preceeded with "PETITION:...", for example...or "Action:..."

The individual title will be more telling, and as each petition or action expires, we can remove it. Perhaps we should list the date on our post, so we wont have to check the petition itself, physically.

I know Id click to check a post that says, "Petition: Justice for Kacy", for example, over a repeated "Petitions & Actions" wherein many petitions get lost or are overlooked due to the repetitive nature of the title.

What do you think?

Friends, Roamin's & Globalpersons, how's about you?

I would think this would be much more organized, and easier to navigate....

Great idea!

, Kathy, Janice!...I wish we'd hear more from all of our other members too, but it seems that many groups get forgotten. Also, we forget to click on "My Groups" in care2, to see the most recent posts from every group we're a part of.

This is how so many of our groups get forgotten, because if we only go by our "Care2 Connect" page, many of the most recent posts from our other groups arent listed.

I haven't heard from Cosmic Rhino yet though. i was hoping she'd post her thoughts too.

Well maybe I'll get started on a revamp and lose the basic 'Petitions" threads as soon as I know I'll have enough time to do it in one sitting, so that each petition & action can have its own space. We'll be a more active group that way too, Im thinking.

They'll also get a LOT more attention each, that way.

for ya!

I have seen Woolly Bears, or something very like them.... when I was little - I don't know if we have them here, because I lived abroad.... I think we do, but not much up on British bugs The book idea is great.... you might try Lulu for publishing?

Hi Kathleen!! : ) September 03, 2005 7:06 PM

That's fine with me, Kat! . . . Sorry I'm just now responding to this ~ but, as you said, I am busy lately and I can only be here once or twice a week now . . .

In fact, now that you're back more regularily,  Kathleen,  I think it might be time for me to pull back on some of the Groups I've been helping Co-Host  since, like I said, I just can't be here more right now  (perhaps you can find someone else to help Co-host, who  can  be here all the time!  ).

 . . . Let me know,  Kat . . . It's been an honour Co-hosting this great Group w/ you!! . . . Please and feel free to take me off as Co-host anytime  (both, here & in the "Canine's Best Friends" group).  

Máire, aka

Cosmic Rhino  ] :< )
