Is it just me or is it bloody hard to keep up?

ScummyMummy Sun 28-May-06 00:33:43

No hope of keeping up anymore, I agree, oh witch of watery wickedness.

Chandra Sun 28-May-06 00:35:06

DO you really manage to keep up?, I think I never did, I live in the allergies topic now but out of it sometimes I even find difficult to keep up with the names

hunkermunker Sun 28-May-06 00:37:46

Psst...there's a good housekeeping topic now...!

Chandra Sun 28-May-06 00:39:28

Housekeeping topic? I can't even keep my house organised how am I going to cope with a housekeeping topic?

jamiesam Sun 28-May-06 00:40:18

What, with everything? Sounds like a mythical age of MN...

Chandra Sun 28-May-06 00:42:26

At the beginning everythig was in darkness and there were 27 active conversations in Mumsnet.

Those days... I could post in all of them before going to sleep!

ScummyMummy Sun 28-May-06 00:42:59

There is? Is it for housework dullards who want to do better or for fully fledged perfectionistic Kim and Aggies?

hunkermunker Sun 28-May-06 00:44:41

It's for Cod

ScummyMummy Sun 28-May-06 00:49:42

Oh right. So it's kind of about lakeland products?

hunkermunker Sun 28-May-06 00:51:47

Weeeeellllll, pretty much

ScummyMummy Sun 28-May-06 00:54:20

Cool. I'll check it out.

I'm really struggling with who people are just now.
Who is yellowfeathers? (I've forgotten).
I thought Pinkerplink was fiofio but I've seen fiofio posting so now I don't know.
And has fastasleep gone altogether?
etc etc
(Will go and post about laundry in the housekeeping topic tho....)

I think plinkerplink is fiofio and that she has staretd being fiofio again.

fastasleep appears to have left

I seem to reserve my remaining brain cells for remembering small facts such as these .

www, I can't keep up either - but then I would be more worried if I could, as there are hundreds of threads now. I can find long threads and I don't recognise a singer poster on them -eek!

Every now and again I pick the name of an active poster at random - someone I can relate to. I then do a search to see what they have posted on, to see what I have been missing - works for me ;)

zippitippitoes Sun 28-May-06 18:49:31

I think there are loads of people and loads of people who have changed names and loads of new people and loads of people with such similar names that i haven't relaised they are new people

Twiglett Sun 28-May-06 18:52:45

there's still only 27 threads that are interesting though .. the rest are dross

charliecat Sun 28-May-06 18:53:47

I read the whole of MN when I first joined, took about 2 days. It would be impossible now

Earlybird Sun 28-May-06 18:55:52

Hey Twiglett - how did you come up with the number 27?

Agree with everyone else - impossible to know who's who anymore with all the namechanges and new folks.

Miaou Sun 28-May-06 18:59:33

ooh I was thinking about starting a similar thread recently ... tbh I now just tend to hone in on familiar names and topics that interest me - however I quite often find I have missed important events in people's lives for days on end. It is soooo different to when I joined (only 2 years ago!)

zippitippitoes Sun 28-May-06 19:01:59

I think a lot of people have joined in the last 5 or 6 weeks, but what seems to happen is that after the flurry the number of posters drops back again and you can get a grip..

if you want to

LadyTophamHatt Sun 28-May-06 19:03:35

Charliecat.....you read the whole on mn???

jesus woman, thats dedication



Mioau, I find myslef doing the same with the familar names thing. Clique anyone??

Earlybird Sun 28-May-06 19:04:10

I know some people have name changed for privacy reasons, but maybe we should start a "who are you know, and who did you used to be" for those of us who are can't keep up? That way, people could voluntarily participate - or not.

charliecat Sun 28-May-06 19:20:44

It was a while back, about 4 years ago i think, and there was only 2 days reading to do, now it would take months.
