Hey Older Forum Members!

To the older forum family members--

Do you have any advice on all the new members? How are you keeping up with the new people and all the new threads? I'm not on as much as before,but hardly recognise anyone anymore. Are you having the same thoughts?

Any advice?

It is a mixed feeling I have......kinda sad to see the close forum family go--but yet it is nice to have newbies too.

hI jULIE - I agree, it seems hard to keep up with all the new members - welcome to all - I try to go on once or twice a day and keep updated, but find it really hard to keep track of everyone! Hopefully all our newbies will respond to all the playdate threads and we can all meet through those!!

Maybe we can encourge others across the country to set up more and more playdates so we can all stay connected.

Honestly, I have been in and out lately as well and usually I pick one day a week to go through every thread posted. If I find one that either no one has answered or I can add to it, I respond even if it's a week later, I feel like it'll probably help.

It's hard because it means I'm usually way behind the threads - whereas before I was reading every thread every day - but it's nice to see new people around and to be able to help them out when they need it! I also think new members come in "waves" a bit and some stay and some go, so it's easier to keep track of some newer people. If I really don't remember who so-and-so is, I always click on their name and go to "see other posts by this person" and get reacquainted so to speak.

I've missed seeing you around more often Julie!

Julie, I consider myself a semi-old forum member and feel the same way. My head is spinning sometimes, cause I don't know who is who anymore. I get people and dogs mixed-up and sometimes decide not to comment because I would have to figure out first who is who, haha. I used to be able to not only remember members' first names and dogs, but also their member-names.

Thank you for your replies. I of course want to welcome everyone and their pups,but find myself thinking,did I welcome them? Are they new? Has it been too long to now welcome them? Things like that. When the forum was smaller it was fairly easy to get to know everyone and make comments on all the threads. Now I'm not commenting on very many because I actually miss some of the people I do know --their threads. Is that considered rude?

This is my only forum experience,so is it common to kind of lose the closeness?

I'm also a little overwhelmed. My biggest fear is that the older ones will tire of the forum and move on. I will miss the great advice.

PLEASE DON'T ANYONE LEAVE!!!!!!

I haven't been on all that much lately. Now that winter is on it's way out and spring is here, I'm a little bit busier.

Plus way too much estrogen on this site lmao

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

Just what did you mean by "older"? Well, it was a lot easier to navigate and keep track 3 yrs ago. I kind of miss the intimacy we had as a smaller group. I get a little worried about our wonderful Havanese breed being discovered by so many new people. I hope they are all going to good breeders and through rescue. But, I love seeing all the new pups.

This is what I fear,and "see" some already.....
Maybe everyone is just busy,but it is hard to keep track of even their threads.

So many times I see all new threads about the same things we all went through that are repeated over and over that I don't comment. It isn't to be rude,but rather more of a thought of how many times do I (me personally) need to comment on potty issues,or bell ringing etc. See what I mean? I think people must be bored reading my comments over and over and over. I've been here a long time...............
