    It is a priority on my to-do list this summer :-B. It's funny that all my worst injuries from my playing days came from my own team mates [face_sigh]. Concussions are complex, but at least there's more awareness to them now, especially in youth sports. Not everybody takes them as seriously as they should, though :(.

    Edit: On a sidenote, I'm so proud that I figured out how to multiquote. [face_dancing]Woo-hoo! [face_party]

    Concussions are not fun. Definitely get checked out. I wish I had the foresight to do so when I suffered one way back in high school.

    Now that we can see how many "hits" a story has, is anyone else surprised by the ratio of posts to hits? It makes one wonder if the hits w/o posts reflect a lack of words or a dislike of the post - am I getting paranoid again? ;)
  4. Iverna Jedi Master

    Sorry I'm new to all these terms... d'you mean the fact that there tends to be less replies than views on individual threads? I think that's pretty normal...
  5. YodaKenobi Jedi Master

    Whenever someone hits me, I assume "dislike."

    I'd just plain be happy to see how many people have been at the very least taking a peak at my stuff, rather than avoiding it like the plague.
  7. Valairy_Scot Jedi Grand Master

    :D True, true.

    But we used to - sometimes - get more than 1 or 2 replies on the old boards.
  8. It_is_me_ardavenport Jedi Master

    Not a bit surprising at all. On the other site where I post fics 100 to 1 ratio hits to replies is a good return.:eek: Most times, it's much worse.:rolleyes: I prefer to think that most people can't think of anything more interesting than, 'Liked it.' or maybe they don't want to log in to reply, or you've written about a SW character who isn't their favorite.

    This right here is my problem more often than not. I'm very glad we have an actual button for that, now. I predict I shall get good use out of it. :D

    @Valairy_Scot: I don't think we can expect much of any sort of activity fic-wise until we reach the new boards. I'd say a good half of the regulars haven't come across to these temp ones.

  11. LazyK Jedi Master

    I'm starting to think the dozen or so hits-without-replies I get are either Mods who have me figured for a troublemaker or people logged in at three in the morning who are desperate for something new to read. [face_paranoid] :D

    - lazy

    I'm pretty sure that when we've finally moved the posts/replies will go up. Especially in the fanfic section. A lot of regular fanfic authors haven't signed up on the temp boards.
  13. JainaSoloYJK Jedi Master

    You mean we're actually still moving? :p
  14. Ceillean Jedi Master

    I'm not about to give up hope just yet :p
  15. mavjade Fan Activites/Fanfic Moddess

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry about replies here, there are a LOT of people who are waiting on the real boards.

    Yes, I promise we are still moving, it's just taking a lot longer to work out all the kinks than we anticipated. 8-}
  16. Ceillean Jedi Master

    Soooo...soccer game is over. Germany won. Not that that's surprsing. *coughs* :p Lots and lots and LOTS of happy shouts and screaming going on.

  17. YodaKenobi Jedi Master

    I miss posting and reading stories :(
  18. Book-Geek Jedi Master

    Not surprised there either. What was the final score?

    I can't wait for tomorrow's Spain/France game!
  19. TrakNar Jedi Grand Master

    Me too.

    We should change that and post and read stories. Let's restart the Dear Diary Challenge, Temporarily-Permanent, Permanently-Temporary version!

    4:2 for Germany
