suggestion for M&G posts/posters

I think recently M&G calls are becoming chaotic. It is getting harder to understand when, where and why we are meeting...

There is nothing wrong with exploratory threads such as "Possibly Sunday?" where folks are just looking to see if there's interest. However once the interst is established, please create a new thread with clear forst post and title:

The title of the m&g thread should be "M&G at X place on Y date"

The first message should contain location and time.

You think my suggestion is good? or I am simply being M&G format ?

yeah there are plenty of threads with question marks/ gauging interests and then folks are starting to sign up in the very same thread... but it is kinda hard to figure where and when without reading the whole thread...

simple question: how many m&g are tonight ? or tomorrow? This sort of thing should be easy to understand based on just looking at titles... And the way things are right now it is not.

Why is the "feeler m&g" threads in the m&g section? If it's a feeler, why not in general?

EDIT: note the exemplary grammar. No, I'm not changing it.

Look, I posted a "feeler" thread because A. I'm not familiar with the Houston area, #2 I wanted a central locale so we could all meet up and finally meet each other... and, again, since I'm not familiar with the area, I wanted everyones opinions. So when it was settled, the date, time and signup sheet was posted in the thread.
:dontknow:

I can understand cleaning it up a bit, but sometimes the "Feeler" threads are needed... :dontknow: just my $.02!

I was going to suggest the same. Not that exact layout but some sort of prompted questions that you fill out like the for sale section.
