We hope Mike may learn
That we don't like double posts
Put your thoughts in one.

Mike, I think you might have misread me a little.

My point is that by participating actively in a community of enthusiasts, you will find that while your tastes are what they are, and you won't necessarily analyze everything to death, simply by virtue of your participation in the community, you'll make some discoveries. It may be as simple as someone else talking about something you absolutely love (or hate). Part of the "collateral damage" that comes from hanging out with a bunch of coaster nuts is that, just as a matter of communication, you'll suddenly notice that you *can* explain why you like what you like and don't like what you don't. It's not because you've sat down and analyzed anything; it flows naturally from the conversation!

Anyway, I don't mean to scare you off. :) The point is more that this is one of those things that the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it. Welcome aboard!

Look back on pg 1.. If you see your name 2x in a row.. Double post..

No biggie. Most of us have done this at one time or another. You can edit your previous one and add your comments in without creating a new response post.

I was mostly taking advantage of creating a haiku thats topical. This is being a part of CB.. Enjoy ;)

"No doubleposting(!)" is overrated. people do it here from time to time. It's best to put it into one post, but sometimes someone else may reply to something before you reply, and you may want to reply to them too. Other times, you may have a thought that doesn't quite go with your previous post, and you want to break the two up.

There are a whole bunch of rules around here, some unwritten, and some silly. Not all the rules are silly though. Because of the rules (and the awesome people), CoasterBuzz has become the best place to discuss coaster topics in a smart and passionate way.

Without getting into it, CoasterBuzz changed my life for the better in ways that I never would have imagined. New Buzzers get me excited with hopes that things will get more interesting.

Nice to meet you, here at least.

EDIT - I was going to double post for effect, but editing is nice too, especially if you are going to just add on to the exact subject that you were talking about, like this. ;)

Perhaps im interpreting this incorrectly but it appears this one is written.


6. Editing Your Post


If you find that once you have submitted your reply or message to the forums and you notice a mistake, or left something out, you can click on “edit” above your post to correct the error. Making another post with the correction leaves that topic thread disorganized.


That said.. I did say we all do it and its no biggie.. But it also does cause attention if you go through some back threads in previous posts where its been done a bit.
