Hey gang. 

I'm really happy to see so much lively discussions going on the forums! 

But as a reminder, please keep on topic so that the thread can be more relevant and valuable to other members who are looking for specific answers. 

You're more than welcome to create additional topics to be discussed on their own (and I encourage that!), so please be mindful ?

This will be be especially important as one of the new forum features will include an option to view unread/latest posts and it's functionality improves if the conversations don't stray from the original topics. 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Thats a great idea Eric. I was wondering if some of the threads were going stray ( always interesting, though).  I think when someone asks a question the tendency is  to answer it then and there. I am guilty. Its like playing telephone though. Pretty soon the title of the discussion has nothing to do with the subject matter.

Yes, it is like playing telephone!

I think that as long as we are mindful of the fact that someone looking for information needs to find it without digging around, then we can keep the focus on topic.

For everything else, there's the lounge forum ?

The lounge, found HERE, is just a place to relax and post things that don't fit into the other categories.

It works exactly like the other parts of the forum, but works well for casual conversation, personal updates, off-topic discussions, etc. ?

Love the chats-but yes, scrolling down so much if needed advise can get to people-- (yes, even me at times) the chats give us a let out and some laughs with this customized stomas of ours-and see that others do get out side and enjoy and have fun.. That was a lift up for me.. So I DID go and have fun and long rides, really not caring if I needed the empty.. I just went and did it and enjoyed myself for once in 3 years.. Thanks everyone!!

Guilty as charged. Look back over my posts and see that I wander off topic with the best of you. Will try hard to repent and stay on topic from now on.
