No tears shed here...TeaChat has long been about tea, only recently has it been about daily TeaFellowship that is unique to TeaDay as well, where any and all tea aficionados are welcome regardless of his/her tastes. TeaDay has sort of become the doorway to TeaChat, rarely does one say, wow, I love the door to that house more than anything, but the door says come on in, you are welcome here.
Still, I love this door. I love the fellowship and the casual sharing, the friendly atmosphere that I find here. This doorway has been instrumental in a 3-4 fold increase in overal forum posts. What is happening, more members are visiting TC and staying longer everyday, participating more in the entire forum.
I walk through this door and into the rest of the forum. There I love the information sharing, the wealth of knowledge. Without all this, TeaDay would just be a doorway to nowhere. There also needs to be substance to justify the doorway.
Another way of looking at is, TeaDay is more about people, the rest of the forum is more about tea. But we came here because we love tea, we stick around because we love TeaChat.
Regarding the bribes, as soon as adagio pays me, I will mail the checks.
I am enjoying all the responses, especially the wrong ones.
