That everyone has to finish their place marking post with the time the OP last posted, e.g.

Place marking

19:36

Because I'm a lazy cow who likes parking threads...

I don't really get place marking, especially if you're the first person to post (which I have seen in the past). JUST BOOKMARK THE PAGE!

UserOO7 Tue 07-Feb-17 20:46:32

That's why you pretend to say something insightful...

ProudBadMum Tue 07-Feb-17 20:47:44

No should place mark. Especially on threads about serious situations.

You are place marking on someone's real life there. Nosey silently and watch the thread of you need to know so bad but don't write place marking

Passmethecrisps Tue 07-Feb-17 20:49:29

^this!

Someone is detailing the awful collapse of their life and someone comes along and posts a full stop.

I think that there should be a law that states that the thread title should give some fucking indication as to what the thread is about.

proudbad - although its someone's real life they have chosen to plaster over the Internet on an entirely open forum so y'know...

SmileEachDay Tue 07-Feb-17 20:53:03

blush it's

Birdsgottaf1y Tue 07-Feb-17 20:53:03

Totally agree, your not recording a Soap, or tuning into a Catch up episode.

TiggyD Tue 07-Feb-17 20:55:21

And nobody should be allowed to start an interesting thread that gweeks the interest of us nosey people and then fuck off down a cave in Bhutan for a month unable to post a follow up leaving us clenched to the sofa with intrigue.

No, they've posted on a Parent Support Forum, when they've need help/support.

I fucking hate placemarking, why don't people use bookmark?

PigletWasPoohsFriend Tue 07-Feb-17 20:58:39

No, they've posted on a Parent Support Forum, when they've need help/support.

Which is still a public open forum.

TiggyD Tue 07-Feb-17 20:59:03

And then there's the use of illegal smileys that don't show up on many computators. We have a list people!

...on a totally open Internet forum.

Putting a full stop is just plain rude.

FrankiesKnuckle Tue 07-Feb-17 21:01:01

Just watch or bookmark the thread. Easy. Get your curtain twitching kicks without being spotted.

UserOO7 Tue 07-Feb-17 21:01:46

.

UserOO7 Tue 07-Feb-17 21:01:58

Couldn't resist

TiggyD Tue 07-Feb-17 21:02:55

A full stop? Or is it an 'l' seed?

diamondsforapril Tue 07-Feb-17 21:03:26

Agree with sooty. It really annoys me.

Allthebestnamesareused Tue 07-Feb-17 21:06:14

I don't know how to book mark or get op in colour despite reading various versions how to do it either on my iphone 5 or pc! Anyone happy to try to explain again

RustyPaperclip Tue 07-Feb-17 21:13:28

Placemarking baffles me, why not just bookmark the last post? Is there a secret benefit to placemarking?

ShizerMinelli Tue 07-Feb-17 21:19:23

To bookmark just swipe the comment you're on to the left and it pops up with the option to click on a little bookmark. Also watch the thread too - foolproof. (No idea about this colour fandango though)
