How aboout: All us Gameboomers love our fellow man, try to be kind, and if we have unkind thoughts or feelings towards someone specific we just shut our mouths and try to be pleasant, or avoid someone we could have a problem with because the 'chemistry ain't there'....? This place is sacred to all of us who have remained and come back EVERY DAY, and we don't want to spoil it for ourselves or anyone else. It is just why I don't even go looking for other forums to participate in....many of us feel the same way. And we love it that you want to be with us, and respect us all as much as we respect and love you. :kiss: Does that start to answer your questions? The originators of this forum had a strict policy and our current Ad/Mod/owner has followed thru on it and trained all her 'helpers' to keep us all in line, gently and quietly. Peace and Love reign thumbsup
Love, Betty Lou :kiss:

A thread that runs consistantly through all the forums is bonds of friendship.

It's really just a matter of old fashioned good manners and common courtesy, sadly no longer to be expected in many aspects of modern life but all the more precious for that when discovered.

Keep up the good work all you mods and admin folk (even if you do sometimes censor some of my jokes)!

And a belated welcome to Alkis.

Hi Alkis. I get enough of fighting & backbiting at work! Coming to GB is like coming home - nice & relaxing & you can be yourself.
Off now to make very large cup of tea

Hi Alkis....insults, petty fights and troublemakers just don't fit here. We get enough of that in the real world. Courtesy, friendship and good manners are what jumps out at you no matter what forum you're on. I've yet to find these qualities on any other site. A real home from home, thanks to admin, mods and members bravo

Hi Alkis, just want to add that GameBoomers is a special place for me to make new friends from all over the world and feel I have found a safe place to "get away from it" all and enjoy moments of fun, laughter, sharing, and caring! smile

Everyone else has already said it so eloquently I'll just add I agree with what's already been said. Come back every day and see what we mean.

Well we do like to sing a rousing chorus of Kum-Ba-Ya every once in a while but I don't think that THAT is the reason...
Some of us sing off key eek
Some of us don't know the lyrics blush
some of us just space out and not follow the conductor bravo {gameboomers}

Yup, GB is a very special place. We share our joys and woes, come up with helpful suggestions if someone has a problem and, above all, we laugh together and not at each other.

Our mods, past and present, are truly terrific for enabling this to come about.

Hi Alkis
There's no secret to it. Everyone here has a grown up mentality. Iv'e personally seen you picked on at other forums about your new game.
Speaking of which , how's that game coming along ? Looking forward to playing it.

Ta Ta for now.

I have been here almost two years and only once in that time have I seen any poster get an "attitude" when he didn't get the answer he thought he should have gotten. Even his nastiness was dealt with by the mods nicely, calmly and professionally. I was very impressed.

Thank you all for your posts and welcomes. It looks like you're doing a great job here.
Cathy, the game is coming along just fine. I will have some important announcements soon, but I don't want to jinx them before I get some contracts signed.
The people who picked on me in other forums about my game are a very small minority compared to the ones who liked it. And again, the percentage of the people who were *rude* to me as opposed to just saying they didn't like it (which is acceptable) was even smaller.
But as a wise man said once: "999 people love your creation and the 1000th person hates it, and the only thing you can think about it is the 1000th person".

Hey alkis21, the reason we are so happy and civilised here is because we don't set out to hurt anyone, we are always there for each other if any of us needs a shoulder to cry on. We are NOT gobby brats who set out to deliberatley cause arguments - we are just a big, happy gameboomer family.

And I would like to say a big to you!!!

Diana...please explain "gobby brats" to me. From the way it sounds, it may need to be in an email to me.
