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.
Well, Seansfamily, seems like we want you to tell some more stories here. If you have the time, we´ll listen.
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!
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.
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).
Okay, I´ll give it a go. But I fully expect Pinta to include a chronicle of at least one memorable pig.
