Topic tags/keywords: question

Is it just me or do others see this…?
I just got notification on facebook of a PROJECT reaching Daily Top 3 status ...
So not only NOT a Project… should have been in the workshop jigs etc section but it was part one…so NOT even finished…it was part one of a BLOG ...IMHO
What part of…..IS IT A FINISHED PROJECT .... do they not understand….
There is more and more of this happening…If it continues I for one will not be checking projects…Other than when I am notified of my buddy’s posts…
Do I flag or just ignore…
?
What say you all????

I don’t FB either. Nor do I MS, nor LI, nor Tweet. Tweeting is what birds do, right? :) I don’t watch the news either. I like my privacy(refer to my Buddy icon to your left). If you want to reach me, then call me or email me. If you don’t have my number or email, then I may not want to talk to you.

Yeah, there are several threads that should be tucked away in the NST forum, but are not. How about ’How my dog ate my snowman’ posts in the blog section? The mgt. is too leinient IMO. Oh, but I hear that some plane refurbs get deleted without notice when they are posted as projects. Go figure on that one.

I flag inappropriate posts as I run across them as spam. When I run across posts with the F word cleverly disguised(or sometimes not), in addition to flagging them as offensive, I often block that person. There’s just no place for that on a suposedly family friendly site. Although, even the managment is waffling on that one, so it seems. I can think of three people, however, that have won me over and I have un-blocked them. Right Bertha? :) The fact is, it doesn’t add anything to the conversation other than displaying the person’s apparent lack of vocabulary.

OTOH, this is still one of the best sites around.

Regardless of how I got notified… I do not think part one of anything is a FINISHED project… and there is a section for timber gloats, tool refurbs and jigs for the workshop….just not in the project section…
While this is still the best site… after mine…LOL….I think that my time here is nearly up….

I’m not sure if this is about facebook or projects that aren’t woodworking projects. I don’t do facebook, I’m no help with that. I’ve seen projects posted that had no woodworking involved. I’ve seen wood posted as projects that had no work done to them, other than loading and unloading from a truck.

Larry, I think I’m seeing what you’re seeing, but I just let it go. Just like forums I think don’t belong here. I don’t know if the rules have changed or what.

I think flagging should be reserved for something offensive, but then that’s someone’s opinion.

Larry,

I know what you mean. I get the same notices on Facebook and on Twitter. It’s nothing to do with how we receive this stuff, after all, we signed up for the notices on Facebook when we liked them. I don’t have a problem with receiving these. I think I have the same problem though. One of them today was this project. Now he’s doing a great job on what he is building there, and yes it is made from wood, but come on guys. This is NOT a FINISHED PROJECT! Yes I’m interested in the subject matter as well. But like you Larry I hesitate to be the one to report these posts as I don’t need to be the bad guy.

I sound like I’m ranting, but for me it’s simple, follow the laid out rules and we won’t get so frusterated about these things.

Mike

Mike this is exactly what I meant…Not wanting to name names… but I think that most of these folks think that the projects page is the only way anyone will see their work… Now I am ranting….
