Now I have nothing against Nincomp, that sweet lil pony who started a wildly successful thread so very long ago-
But, folks, don't you think we're acting somewhat like lemmings in search of the unattainable cliff without a ledge?
Seems to me that we, starving for status of 'winner', are willing to say jest about anything to gain some elusive prize!!!
Any suggestions about how to put the pony in its place??
Actually, "Last To Post" thread isn't about the "Last to Post" anymore and is more for generalized chatter between HubPages who use it to catch up with other Hubbers without starting other meaningless threads.
Umm, Cags-that's a given if I've ever heard one. I mean, of course, dear pal. The point here was facetious-I thought you'd get that!!!
And no, 'Last to Post' will not cease...as if it should; 'generalized chatter' or meaningless banter is the virtual point of The Sandpit, where we are usually bound to sink, no?
The forums wouldn't be the same without that thread. I'm sure most of us have posted on it for fun, at least once. There are some nice hubbers on that thread.
I never saw the point, but live and let live, and to each his own.
I don't want to see that one, or a few other "famous" threads, go. They help contribute to sense of "stability" and predictability in the forums.
Here's some of the others (classics, I think) that I kind like to keep seeing:
The "recommend another Hubbers' Hub" one (with - like - 10,000 links at this point )
The "Waffle-Cheese Count-to-200,000" (or however many) one. (Slow progress on that one, from the last time I noticed. People are up to what - 3000 or something? )
The "change a letter" one (I've never even looked at that one, but it's always there)
There's also the "say anything in three words" (another one I've never gone to but that seems to be an oldie and "goodie" and biggie.
I kind of miss seeing the "Good morning, you Hubalicious Hubbers" one that was around for a couple of years, I think. "Hubalicious" always irked the heck out me, but there was, again, that element of stability to seeing it show up so faithfully.
If it weren't for some of those "fine, classic" threads there'd be little on here but religious threads, who thinks the world is going to end threads, and the ever-popular stewing-over-traffic threads.
Sorry, lorlie. As much as I would like to agree with a perfectly nice Hubber like you, I have to say I think people must keep on striving to "win" on that "last one to post" thread. (Has anybody ever said if there's any prize involved for whoever actually does win, by the way?)
I can't agree mostly because I love nicomp, if he or she was a religion I would follow him or her. Only people from Ohio can be as cool as nicomp. In fact, I would not be surprised to find out the town of Coolville, Ohio was named for nicomp!

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Why do I say that? Because I'm guessing something happened that motivated HP to include this in the HubPages Weekly:*Start*What Are the HubPages Forums for? Are There Any Rules?The Forums allow the community to complement each individual Hubber’s talents and interests. We hope they provide a living...

When I look through my 'Hubtivity', there's all kinds of recent forum posts, hub comments, and answers that I had previously posted something in. Some of these I'm no longer interested in, or the comment I made was just in passing.Is there a way of 'unfollowing' or no longer receiving...

I just noticed that Matthew replied to a question from a Hubber and immediately closed the threadThere used to be an unspoken policy on the forums - a thread was only closed if things got too heated and unpleasant. I hope that policy is not going to change, for several reasons. For one thing,...

I was just curious. I have not seen a lot of hubbers that have been here at Hubpages for over two years..perhaps they are too busy hubbing away!

This is a two part problem, although I believe the first part may just be because of my browser.1. When in normal Chrome, forum does not load and is a completely grey screen. I can access "your" by typing it at the end of the URL. The forum loads normally when in Chrome incognito.2. When...
