    I mean I am new and all that, so I am still learning the house rules.

    But I am puzzled by this bizarre thing going on here, on this site . I look at the board index and it says 250 people online. Then I look at activities at the board index and none of this 250 people online are posting anything or interacting with anyone for hours on end on the site. It is as if these people are staring lifelessly at their computer screens.

    Can someone fill me in. Why are all these people online and not saying anything? Am I missing something?

    What's up guys? Are you alive out there? Say something! Anything!

    You mean the posters are afraid of the new look? LOL! I really don't think so.

    They need topics that would stir them into action. You know, some controversial stuff. I am sure the more controversy that goes on here, the more people will join in and the more lively the place will become in no time at all.

    I can post some controversial stuff that will get posters talking, but I am new, so I don't know if that kind of stuff is allowed?

    For instance, I can start a thread asking: Sex, do women like it rough or gentle? Something like that would get everyone talking.

    Thanks for the welcome cherryblossom. Looks like you are a newbie as well. Maybe an older newbie huh? :confused:

    So tell me, do you think I can start a thread like I suggested to lilpea or something like that will get me permanently banned? :eek:

    Greetings again Brother Energy....

    That's all cool... But do us a great favor please? wait a while and get used to the site...meaning knowing where each topic can be posted. We don't want to go down again for having an erotic topic in the wrong place...lol lol

    This site is over 10 years old....I would imagine that every subject/topic has been discussed at some time and some of them OVER and OVER again. But, a "fresh" perspective sometimes also generates more discussion....Until Destee finishes with all of the "fine tuning," many members will be listed as "NEW." ----But, most of the members here have been here for MANY YEARS. (just 2 years for me, though.)

    This board is ten years old? You must be kidding me. You mean this place was in existence the same time as the BET discussion boards and BlackPlanet? Wow! Respect is really due to the administrators for managing to keep this site going when all the rest have folded. I am mightily impressed. :cool:

    Like Bro. Lilpea said, look through the forums: OPEN, RELATIONSHIPS, WARRIORS (men), SISTERS (women), SPIRITUAL, etc..

    As for me, it depends on my mood....sometimes, nice/soft/ and easy...other times a li'l wilder.
