I’ve noticed lately that there seems to be an increasing amount of bees who feel like they are being ignored by the community. This makes me sad since we have such a large wonderful group of ladies (and a few men) on the boards.
I’m sure there are other bees who already do this, but I would like to make a suggestion. It would be nice to see bees trying to focus on threads that have fewer than 10 comments when they see them and just try to give as much honest constructive input as possible. I think I am going to set a goal for myself and try to help at least three bees a night who seem to be passed up on the boards. I don’t want to see the bees that I’ve come to know vanish from the boards.

I do try to do that anyways, but it is a nice reminder. I’d hate for folks to think the Hive is “clique-ey.” I actually enjoy responding early, as once a thread gets really long, people tend to stop reading all of the posts. Anyways, let’s all try to make everyone feel welcome, and I’m totally on board!

Aww thank you. I think I’m going to blame my cuteness on my avatar though. Who can get agitated with somebody represented by a doe eyed squirrel?
Yeah I understand about the threads getting long… There are some threads where I really want to join into the discussion, but so many posts pop up too fast to keep up. It’s nice to float around to other threads and feel helpful when that happens isn’t it?

Oh… my god. This is the first time I’ve ever looked at your avatar. Have I mentioned that I LOVE squirrels? I even made a cute cross stitch for Fiance of two squirrels holding a heart-shaped acorn. Your avatar is RIDICULOUSLY adorable.

Oh gee I didn’t realize my avatar would be so distracting lol. That’s the fastest I think I’ve seen a thread go off topic.
That sounds like an awesomely cute cross stitch!
I can’t seem to decide if I think the squirrel is trying to plead for more nuts or if it wants to desperately share the one it’s holding.

Great idea! I know sometimes I feel like my posts are invisible, and I hate that feeling.

That’s so sweet and thoughtful! I am sure if everybody focuses on helping each other out a little more it will foster an even better community here!
