Tumbleweed blows through....
I'm not a cup cake fan either. Too much yuk on top and too much food colouring
I rest my case
Here's a grinder for your axe DT
Several forums have people who congregate in daily threads. Maybe they are less intimidating for newcomers? Otherwise can't see the point in closing down busy threads.
I dont think Runnersworld has died, just a bit middle aged. It moves a lot slower than it used to.
OW's point about facebook and twitter sounds right. Not only have old members moved on to fb/twitter etc, there are probably less new members joining here as there are a lot of places to choose.
The forum is what the people who use it make it.
And the people who use it get what they want out of it.
I got a husband
So if you stay will you become a bigamist sarah
Probably should qualify with a
One cake is never enough?
My specialality is ginger cake. I've even had someone on RW comment that my ginger cake was the best thing about the race that he did.
I also make a mean Guinness cake.
If you want it to be darling
FFS, is nothing sacred?
A forum is only as good as the people on it want to make it. This one is big enough for everyone to find their particular corner to gravitate towards. I usually only use the events and ultra topics because there you have a very common shared interest - an upcoming event. You can find out far more useful info about an event from a thread than ever you could on any official website, etc, and if you have experience about it you can offer to others if rhelpful. And it can lead to the possibility of meeting up of course, always an interesting experience. Some forumites have turned out to be female when I've always assumed they were male!!
I use the gear or health+injury only when I need to, or if someone wants advice.
And then very rarely I have a look at latest posts and post something on a random thread, like this one, which I wouldn't normally do.
Some of the threads, especially clubhouse ones, are so inclusive and full of in-jokes between people who clearly know each very well that I've found there's not much point even trying to get involved. Some threads are incomprehensible. I also avoid threads that have a lot of moaning and griping. You can come across a lot of this in your normal life without longing on here and getting another load of it.
Enjoy your running everybody . Keep the positive vibes going.
Not a great cake-eater, but I can be tempted, especially if it's dark chocolate and sticky.
People frequent forums to either be informed or amused. Whether this happens is up to the other people who frequent the forums.
Taint rocket science.
TOTP and quite rightly so
You should try my chocolate and beetroot cakes. They're very nice indeed.
