I dont know if ive put this on the correct thread, so i apologise if havent.


As we had 'Goodnight' overload on the GD boards recently, why not have a thread for it? 

We have a 'Good morning Giffgaff friends' and  a "Share your Giffgaff achievements', to stop the boards being overloaded. 

So, why not a 'Goodnight Giffgaff friends' thread on GD. It would keep them all in one place. The other two mentioned threads have condensed very successfully. 

Just an idea. Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

Yes good idea. GD is best kept for discussion, let's keep these posts separate.

i think it was mentioned here that it was the board being spammed when so many appeared at once but i don`t see anything wrong with a goodnight thread long as they are in general discussion

It wouldn't really work, and i'll tell you why.

Look at the other threads, the achievements thread for one, is supposed to be for anything giffgaff related. But people make a separate thread that it's their 'giffgaff birthday of 1/2/3 years' etc, even though they post regularly in the allotted thread.

The 'have a wonderful day' thread. It doesn't stop people making separate threads saying, 'hi giffgaff friends, have a great day'?

And the people that do this do use those threads, so there's no excuse for it really.

But having a good night thread isn't really needed, because on a 'normal' day we don't actually get that many making them. The ones being resurrected lately are obviously from a member (past or present) who are just trying to make a statement about how bad GD is. And it worked, we're talking about it right now!

Plus, do we really need another long running thread just for people to be cliquey and kudos each other in? Personally, i don't think so.

IMHO this is just another example of the trivialisation of so many parts of the forums (or, for the Latin purists - fora).


That said, let me wish everybody a great evening and hope you all have the most fantastic day tomorrow..and forever !!Smiley Tongue
