TBD on Ning

Well, some of us made it over hear, and are trying to figure out this new site, or maybe have already figured it out. Lots of new people on now that weren't on the other site. Interesting to note that, out of 46,223 people on the old site, only 4.3% made it over here. Some, I know, didn't want to move over here, and I certainly respect that.

To those who commented about the percentages, these statistics came directly from the old site and the new site. Since it is impossible to determine the number of active posters, the only statistics I had to work with were the number of members on each site. I know there were many on the old site who clearly said they weren't coming here, so I am assuming that there were more than 4.3% of active posters on the old site,

I had fun with the questions on the old site, too. But I like the chat feature on here, which we never had on the old site.

Anthony from Boston. I got the percentages by looking at the number of people on the old site vs the new site and doing the math. Granted, not all the people on the old stire were active, but the same could be said for this site. So the relative percentages should be roughly the same.

4.3%? That's about the percentage of Europeans who ended up on the golden shores of the New World. Yes, we are a select, happy few.

I am gradually finding my way around. Found a lot of old friends, and worked up the courage to send invites to some new ones, and got a few invites from new people too. I miss the random questions - it was easy to keep up with everyone if you read all the postings. I wish there was some kind of "What's Going On Here Today?" page where we could keep tabs on one another without having to PM every one.

yea, Lowell, I echo with your thoughts. I am for one, just signed up and still trying to navigate this site. It will take me a while to learn this. I miss the quicky questions in the old site too. It was fun filling them out. I did put lots of thoughts into each question. I also miss my old postings. I did not have a chance to save any of them. Yesterday, I actually log onto the old TBD website, found a lovely poem written by one of the TBD member. Then and only then did I realized how much I miss the old site. I actually get very tearful about it. I felt that part of me die with the old TBD. It was part of my life for a year. I have met many good friends there and they continue to be part of my life. But my dear friend Ruberdoo said that change is good. We need to embrace change for it signifies new beginnings. What a wise man. I hope to reunite with my old friends here and make new ones as well. cheers, footprints

One thing I miss on this site that was on the other site is the questions box. I felt that the answers we gave told us a lot about ourselves as individuals. I get the impression we are all still walking through the new house exploring it and trying to get a feel for the layout of the rooms. The metaphor is rough but someone could probably articulate it better.

46 thousand? I'm not sure they were all active. Wow. That's a lot.
