    Should Maister split off the colicky baby discussion?

    Maister is struggling whether he should split off the discussion on the random thread about colicky babies...under normal circumstances, it would make sense but for Bear, we want to break the record of posts in the random thread

    what should he do?

    wait for the poll

    It seems I made the decision to do so about the same time you started this thread.


    But hey, since we seem to have a new thread going here I say let's not let it go to waste. Or is that paste. I have trouble telling the difference sometimes.


    waist


    paste

    HTH are we supposed to know if one of our random thoughts will evoke enough interest to become it's own thread? I call BS on Maister.

    You're supposed to assume that if you introduce a topic as it's own thread people will respond/post if they're interested. Shouldn't have to vet it through RT ....but that does seem to be what often happens, though.

    Then wouldn't your time be spent more profitably as a thread consolidator wrapping those nowhere threads back into RTDNTOTO?

    I was surprised that conversation has lasted as long as it has without being moved to the Never Ending Raising Children Threak.

    Okay, just so we're clear the Goal is to post both MORE randoms (in RTDNTOTO) and start more new threads. M'kay?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Yeah, I was going to put something similar about Maister being a cross between colicky baby and grouchy old man....

    I keep scrolling through and seeing the title as "Should Maister splitt off the cockney baby discussion?" and then laugh at the thought of little babies talking to each other with thick Cockney accents.
