Here's a rerun of my April post, so everyone knows why I keep bumping this thread and its companion thread.

I know that lots of you think I'm a little nuts for keeping my threads on top. I am a little nuts, but not because of this.

This morning I was answering a question here and I felt bad because chances are small that the question would be seen by the person who would need to see it. I started thinking about how much more visited the other forum areas are. So I whipped out a calculator and did some math. (You didn't think I could do it without a calculator, did you?)

I searched as far back as I could to see when the forums started, then I took the total posts and divided by the years. It is possible that the forums started before the earliest pages I can find, and I didn't mess around with odd months, but you get the idea.

The Bake Decorate Celebrate forum has had 881 posts. I deducted the 83 posts that heve been in my two threads and kept them to just the ones posted by the regular visitor. I came up with an average of about 115 posts per year.

By contrast, the Weddings forum has 12,352 posts per year on average. The General Information section has on average 20,353 posts per year and the Life Celebrations section averages 26,360 posts per year!

As you can see, it is WAY better to post in one of those forums if your question, comment, or idea is NOT about the TV show. Honestly, I am just trying to help out here!

I'm going to post this same message in both of my BDC threads so anyone who clicks on either one can read this.

There have been a couple of relevant posts here for a week or so, but now I want to bump this back up so the message is there to serve as a bit of advice for anyone who strays here and should be in another part of the forum. :-)
