YES, a slush fund would be good, and I would like to contribute.
YES, a slush fund would be good, but unfortunately I am unable to contribute
No, bad idea, want nothing to do with this
Fair enough Deb!
What would happen when the fund ran dry and someone deserved some flowers? Who will go asking for money to cover the expenses of the flowers, chocolate etc?
What I am trying to say though...even though we "know" each other here....most of us do not KNOW each other.
I truly believe...when you involve money...you are asking for trouble to be honest and especially to a fund that really needs regular contributions.
Lets say Amanda just asked for money for airfares for a Pei in need and all the funds were used on that. Then Greys come in and says...there is a Greyhound I need to get out from QLD and transported to my place...can I get some help from the fund please? She would be told no because there are no funds left
I STILL don't like the idea...sorry.
The same confussion is going on the other poll, and I am getting very frustrated as the whole idea of trying to make people smile, have a laugh etc after all the bad news and losses during the week or fortnight has now turned into people thinking that they will get peeved if they don't get an award! I am starting to think I am in the school yard!
Sorry folks, a simple original thought has turned into an absolute monster for some reason.
Just like people are stating why they think the Slush Fund is a good idea...I am stating why I think it is a bad idea...that is MY opinion and not everybody elses.
I am seeing this from a Forum all-over point of view to be honest. I would dearly that this didn't end up in a sh!t fight.
I have said what I think and will leave it at that.
No I have had no problem with what you have said, it is good to have various views. It is a combination of comments being said on both of the poll posts currently. I understand different views etc. But all of this has sprung up from just a thought of something so small and a bit of fun. It has quiet honestly turned me off putting simple thoughts across.
it's like this, I agree with you re the awards for a bit of light-hearted fun. But my opinion doesn't matter whatsoever in the big scheme of things. I'm not prepared to put ideas to Morgan until I have ascertained how many members of the forum think it is worth while doing or trying. If the majority say yes, then I would ask that it be done. I feel that is fair system to use for all new ideas. The forum has to be considered as a whole.
Having said that, I noticed that you just posted in the award thread to clear up misconceptions a few ppl may have had, and at this stage it's looking like a pretty popular idea!
I think it may be ppl do get themselves confused. (Can I win that one sometimes..often..always? )
Just simply clarifying for those ppl helps to sort any problems out though ITKWIM.
Roll on 5pm Bo!
