I see your point but I think we have SO many bees that it’s gonna be long and you’d end up missing the older bees off the new thread cos they posted on Part 1. It’d be nice for bees new and old to all gel together as one community.

Does anyone else have any comments? Maybe it could work and I’m just conceptualising wrong…?
