    Peace and Blessings Family,

    If your thread has been moved, it's because there is a forum that caters specifically to that topic, and we moved it there.

    Here is a link to a quick navigation menu, showing all the many forums we have.

    We (the Moderating Team) don't want to move your threads, but when they are clearly speaking to a topic that has a designated forum, we have to. Things would get so out of order, if everything was in the same forum (Open Forum). The bigger we grow, the more challenging this is becoming ... so we need your help.

    The Open Forum is for topics that won't fit in other places, but please, try to fit your thread within the forum that contains like content. For example, if you are honoring an Ancestor, put it in the Honoring our Ancestors Forum. Or if you are promoting a web site, put that thread in the Black Sites Forum. Another example would be Events, if it is an event, put it in the Events Forum. We realize that a thread can actually qualify for more than one forum, but at least try to get it in one of the correct places, and not the Open Forum.

    The Open Forum has become the "catch-all" forum, but we need to keep things in better order. Even i'm inclined to put my threads in the Open Forum, because this forum gets more activity, and the chances are greater that it will be seen by more people. This is not an acceptable excuse, for me or you. We must have some kind of order, or there will be chaos, threads strewn all over everywhere!

    So if you will, please help us by starting your threads in the right place. When you put your thread in the wrong place, it gives the Moderators more work to do ... and they have lots already ... so this is not good.

    One more thing we could use your help on ... is for you to make the title of your thread clear. So that even before a person clicks on it, from just reading it, we can get a clear picture of what is being presented. For example ... thread titles like ... "Hey, Guess What?" ... or ... "Did you know this?" ... are not very clear, and could be done better.

    Again ... here is our quick navigation menu. I've just added a new Black Travel Forum, that was suggested by a new Member ... i believe it was Dany Hill. Anyway, i'm looking forward to reading your great travel experiences, and plans.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    I can't be cleaning up behind yall all da time forever ... :love:

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Much time has gone into better organizing our site, and there is more to come.

    Forums with multiple prefixes now have them listed at the top for easier access.

    Below are images from forums with multiple prefixes ... as examples of what i'm saying.

    [​IMG]

    You can click on the prefix to get a filtered listing of just those threads / discussions.

    Any forum with multiple prefixes should show up like the above, i picked those for example.

    This is another step in many, toward better organizing our home. This area needs a lot of work because up until our most recent upgrade, no substantive time had been spent on it ... leaving 16 years of growth to look like a hoarder's closet. I will be moving threads to proper forums, making titles more descriptive, sweeping, dusting, shooting, etc., as is necessary.

    As i said, there is more to come, and i appreciate all of yall's help in keeping the house in order.

    Please start your threads in the right forums, and title them descriptively ... so i don't gotta.

    If you have any questions let me know.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    This is a thanks to those already doing this and a reminder for those who are not.

    I've been seeing a lot of threads that should be posted in other forums.

    I'll be moving them as I can ... so don't feel no kinda way offended.

    Please post your threads in the forums that match their content.

    So i don't hafta do this extra work ... Thanks ... :cook2:

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Please create your threads in the forum that best fits the topic.

    If you do not do this, we will move the threads to the appropriate forum.

    If you find your thread has been moved, this is the reason.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
