    Thanks!

    Weekday Threads: happen once a week on the same day (please add date to thread title)
    -Monday Bitchfest (@artcheese) A festival of bitching.
    -Twatwaffle Tuesday! (@OrangeEv) Tell us who is being a twat today.
    -WTF Wednesday (@PeggyOlsonFTW) What the fuck Wednesday.
    -Unpopular Opinion Thursday Tell us your unpopular opinions on things.
    -Flame Free Friday Confessions (@smmatt08) Confess something good, but beware, they're not necessarily flame free.
    ***HDBD (hump day bump day) will be added Wednesday's once they're necessary! (@DarthFuriosa) Take a cute picture of your bump and show it off.
    Does the bolded help?

    • Monday Bitchfest is for general bitching.
    • Twatwaffle Tuesday is for complaining about a specific twatwaffle in your life that week. That one coworker who is physically incapable of shutting up and has the voice of a bitchy drill sergeant? She goes here.  
    • WTF Wednesday is about things that make you go WTF. Topics range from the offensive to the ridiculous. This is for third cousins x times removed who plan to name their poor child Purina Chastittie the Third (because the e clearly makes it more feminine).  
    • UO Thursday is for sharing unpopular opinions with the group. It doesn't have to be baby related. For example, I have an abiding dislike for LuLaRoe. Really, this is the place for anything that makes you want to end a sentence with "Sorry, not sorry!"
    • FFFC (never guaranteed to be completely flame-free) is a place to confess stuff. Say, theoretically, that you made a game of how many balled up pieces of paper you could flick into Bitchy Drill Sergeant's cubicle without her noticing. This would be the best thread to brag that you managed 17 last week. 
    • HDBD is a weekly thread to show off our bumps, typically held on Wednesdays because of the convenient acronym.
    ETA: If you are ever unsure about how a thread goes, lurking generally clears things up pretty quickly. 
    Hope that helped.
    Cheers

    Ticker changes go by the weekday your ticker changes. For example, mine changes on Saturdays, so I would post or start the Saturday ticker change. If yours changes on Tuesdays for example you could start or participate each Tuesday. 

    I had signed up for the weekly menu check-in. If food is your thing, and you want to do that, you're more than welcome to it. It's not necessarily something I have any passion for. :) I didn't even do it last week and I don't think anyone noticed.
  • I know what the ticker change is, I just didn't know if we wanted a designated person to start them or if it was at random. Thanks :)

  • I'm trying to figure out how to use this
  • @br0co1ii , the link to the ticker how-to is broken. :(

    I still can't figure out how to add one to my signature.  I keep getting just the code to show up, not the actual ticker. :(



  • You have to select "html" first and then paste the code in the html section.

    I had the same thing happen to me! I think I went for half a day with just code as my signature. Noob alert lol.

    You have to click the </> button first, and then paste in your codes.

    Sorry ladies! @annabenanna I'll have to look into fixing that. It used to work... :-/
  • @br0co1ii I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a FWP (First World Problem) weekly thread? We had one in another Bump community I was a part of for DD and it went over well. I'm sure you know, but it's just a place for people to complain about otherwise known petty or insignificant things. For example: "The guy at Dunkin Donuts forgot to put creamer in my coffee this morning." Or "My cleaning lady is out of town for 5 weeks."
    I'd be happy to do this one if the admins think it'll be good. Perhaps on a Friday so it'll be FWPF.  If not, it's all good! Thank you!

  • @br0co1ii Could you add somewhere in there that if a poster is going to mention a loss, they should add *TW - loss* to their thread title? That way the PGAL ladies can avoid it if they're having a tough day.

    I've added First World Problems Friday because I like regular threads! It's all yours @Michi1382 ;

    I've also requested trigger warnings for loss posts @PeggyOlsonFTW ;

    I've also fixed the "add a ticker" link. Thanks for the heads up @annabenanna ;

    AND... I tried to emphasize participating in the regular threads as opposed to starting new ones.

  • @J+A2008 You don't need to test your ticker. You can just go look at your old posts and it should be there if you did it correctly.

    Don't feel bad. It took me a little bit of time to figure it out too. 
    go here: http://www.thebump.com/tools
    There's links to make a ticker there. Once you have one, it'll give you an HTML code. Then go to your profile, and click the </> button. The screen will turn yellow-ish. Paste your html code there. 

    Hope that helps!
