    I Don't want to sound like I'm complaining, I love the BOC. I was just wondering if it might be a good ideal if we started posting all the jokes on one thread. We used to have a couple threads we posted jokes on, here is a link to one of them; http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1776, I couldn't find the other. I just noticed here lately that their are so many different threads on the same subject its hard to keep up if your not on several hours a day. It may have to do with members gold coin count, LOL. I enjoy jokes and a good laugh as much as the next guy, I'm just a little slow and have a hard time keeping up with everything. I like to check out all the threads when I have the time but if I don't, I skip over checking out the ones that interest me most (you know, the important ones :roll_eyes: ), then I try to come back later when I have more time and check 'em all out. It might also help in keeping the same joke from being posted 2 or 3 times if they were all in the same thread. That way you could subscibe to the thread and every time a new joke was posted it would pop up in your email also. Don't anyone get upset its just a thought, what do you all think?

    I agree with you on this for sure. Seems like everytime I log on there are 4 or 5 new threads that are just jokes.

    I would agree, however if you get a thread that is alot of pages it takes along time for it to load if you are on Dial-up. Maybe a sub-forum of the General or something like that.

    There was a joke thread on the old board, would be good to start another one up. I agree.

    Separate thread or Forum either way would be better either way. I like them, but this way it would cut down on the number of threads and help all of us to better navigate and catch up.

    A good idea to start a new thread.

    I shouldn't have said one thread, I could see a few different threads for different kinds of jokes, like one for blonde jokes, one for redneck jokes, ect. But if someone is going get on and post several jokes I don't see the need for starting a new thread for each one. That way if you was going to tell a blonde joke you could go to the blonde joke thread and make sure no one already posted the same joke. :smile2:

    Really? Is there a way to filter out the "world discussion" thread? I hit the new posts button and it is all kinds of junk not about fishing.

    I love the idea of a separate section for jokes. Could it be a subforum of the world forum? So it's not missed? I have to agree, i feel that i miss many things that i might want to read b/c my dial up runs slow & it takes me forever to get thru new posts.
