Yes!! Give us a Piggy Profile or Pig something forum!!
No. Not my cup of tea at all. Just serious stuff. No profiles.
Sure, profiles but stick them in the Cavy Chat forum.
Sure, profiles but stick them in the Behavior forum.

I´m sorry I even suggested it!

The reason I did however, was to see more stories like SF´s. Stories about how people became interested in pigs, stories about what makes their gp´s so special. I agree i don´t need the "how cutes", but I thought it would be a good place for people also to post their pictures. I also get confused sometimes, as to who has what pigs and how many. Anyway it doesn´t matter, we could always just use the profile thing.

I agree with you on enjoying that kind of thing. Maybe Seansfamily could do up a post and put a link to it in her profile (I have noticed the links are pretty darn long -- there might be a problem fitting it in the box).

Well, Seansfamily, seems like we want you to tell some more stories here. If you have the time, we´ll listen.

I copied all my stories when I thought I was going to be banned from CG. I can make them available in any way decided.

Most of the CG Piggy Profiles were just brief physical descriptions with names and ages of the pigs. But, I remember one that had a very heartwarming story of how the member came to adopt her pig. Posts such as that are true stories and are worth having somewhere.

I think that the story angle rather than a mere "profile" angle should be considered.

I didn´t vote because I didn´t know which choice to select based upon my opinion that it is stories that should be featured.

Thank you so much for appreciating my stories!

If they´re put into an existing forum they´re too hard to find if that´s what you´re in the mood to read. Most of the forums are immediate dialogue and if you´ve missed 2 weeks - the threads that have sunk are obsolete. I think Pigtales would be lost.

The stories we´re thinking of are almost storybooklike in character and should be kept together.

I don´t know about banning responses. Sometimes people ask for more info and prompt more details that enhance the original thread. True - the "Aw what a cute story"s are definitely unneccessary. Of course they could just ask questions on a fresh thread......

Yes, SF - I remember the profile you´re talking about. Might have been CAT´s I think CAT had a really nice one about her pigs. Those are the ones worth their own forum.

Personally, I like the idea of a profile forum as I too like to read some of the stories, but agree about the awws and oohs. Could we have a word limit (that´s the University lecturer coming out in me now isn´t it)?

As for a name, how about the Cavy Chronicle or something?

Alternatively, a forum that has set questions, eg. name, sex and age of each pig,
favourite food, fav activity, how did you get into cavies..... even as I write this I realize it´s not the greatest of ideas, but something would be nice. And I don´t think other threads should be moved, it you want to start a thread in Cavy Cat that could go in a profile, I don´t think it matters.

Anyway, I have rabbited on enough (thanks Pinta for saying my story was nice - I still get weepy when I think of old Shoebox my first pig).

That has a good ring to it. I like the story idea too. That was actually more of what I had in mind. Maybe people can talk about their pigs but they have to do more than just list them.

Okay, I´ll give it a go. But I fully expect Pinta to include a chronicle of at least one memorable pig.
