Off-Topic / Eurovision - Today I will be ashamed to be Polish [255]

No virtue signalling from me

I meant from European countries with their jury voting

it was a song that was strong enough to win in any year, in my opinion.

Oh dear...

Off-Topic / Eurovision - Today I will be ashamed to be Polish [255]

the musical value of the song is close to zero to me- it certainly isn`t a song I would like to listen to again. Just one of many.

Without the virtue signalling and sympathy votes, the winning song would be near the bottom of the poll in a normal year. Such a dreadful piece of "music" which, I hope never to hear again. Sorry if this offends some people, but I think there were better songs.

This is how.

Well, I can't argue with that screenshot, it has indeed been merged. I've never had any instructions to say I should merge posts in threads, and have no intentions of doing so. To be honest, I'd rather leave the forums than do that.

One of Paulina`s posts originally consisted of two before they were merged.

If you were reading through that thread, how would you know that two posts were merged into one? Also, what would be the point of merging? We have a tool for merging threads, but none for merging two posts. It would be extra work copying, pasting, deleting, and it would be easier just leave them, as two separate posts.

Would you like to see the results or it isn`t necessary coz you believe us??? :):):)

I'm not saying I don't believe you, it's just hard to prove as they will look just like a normal post. Unless of course there are about 8 or 9 quotes in it.

Can't you simply ask other mods and Admin?

Sorry it to so long to get back to you. I still haven't received a reply from one of the staff, and when/if I do, I'll keep you informed.

What do you mean?

It looks like a normal post to me. I will try to find out if it was merged and why?

Here you go:

I'm sorry, but there is nothing in that post that suggests it's two posts merged. With over, 8000 posts in that thread, what sense would it make to merge your one liner, with another post of yours?

You know what is completely F'd up?

The only way your posts would be removed, is because yours might have got caught up in a block of 'off topic' posts. Maybe you quoted from a post that was designated to end up in the bin. Your posts would never be edited, only moved from the thread for being OT.

In my opinion, your posts have been top notch in this thread, very level-headed and very genuine, and even a little bit emotional sometimes. Another genuine poster in this thread is Atch, and both of your contributions to the thread are appreciated.

They say 'cream' always rises to the top, but this thread has also shown that some scum has sunk to the bottom, and I don't think you need me to say names.

You're also welcome to show me some merged posts in English text

Here it is, I remember replying to two members in two seperate posts which were later merged into this one

I was hoping for one of those mega posts in English. That post you directed me to looked like a normal post with its own number, but granted, too many quotes. I'm not doubting you, just asking you to show me one in an English text thread. You seem to suggest that it is a common occurrence.

As for the Polish text threads, two of my colleagues are native Polish speakers, so I leave those threads to them. It would be too easy for me to misread a word and think it meant something else. I just check that there are no English text posts, or spam.

encompassing the time I had been aware of the excessive quoting rule

Yes, it's hard to believe that Admin created that thread about over quoting, nearly 7 years ago. Doesn't time fly.

However, it is amasing you know nothing about it.

I know nothing about it because I've never done this, nor seen anyone else doing it. Farther more, I can't think of any reason as to why this would need to be done. Two threads merged yes, but two posts no.

It is so amasing you decided to investigate this matter further. :):):)

I'm hoping to get a screenshot, and then get it framed. Having one of these 'mega posts' would be like owning a Van Gogh, as they would be so rare.

However, I find it funny when I make two consecutive posts and later on they are merged into one by the staff, creating a mega post with 7 or 8 quotes. :):)

I've seen two threads merged into one, but I've never seen two posts merged into one. Could you please point out on which forum thread(s) I can view one of these mega posts. Thanks.

What does it have to do with slow internet?

Two things that you should try, first try a different browser to see if you get the same problem, and second, clear the cache on your phone to see if it makes a difference. The latter, you should do every couple of weeks anyway to make it run smoother.

Now I can't access "Dyrdymałki o Niczem 2" on my phone even when I'm logged in to the forum in incognito mode

My guess is, you have reached your maximum number of quotes for 2022, and Admin has sent an electronic pulse to your phone to zap you.

Seriously, though, do you close down all the pages in your browser very often?. I have found on my phone, that when I close my browser, pages can remain in memory or cache, and in turn slows down my internet, and makes some sites hard to navigate.

am going to cash out and take my modest profit of $3k.

Soon you may have to change your username to johnny cash. I've never dabbled in stock shares, and I was offered some shares in a storefront glass company in Portland a couple of years ago, but unfortunately I missed the boat.

News / Poland`s aid to Ukraine if Russia invades [11165]

And what is the sentiment of all those body bags of young Russian boys coming home or is that not put on Russian t.v. ?

I've seen this reported a couple of times. Apparently, Putin doesn't want irate mothers taking to the streets like they did back in 2014, when their sons returned in body bags, from the last invasion. telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/02/23/russia-deploys-mobile-crematorium-follow-troops-battle/

Feedback / Why are threads deleted or send off topic list? [65]

it might be useful to discuss other aspects of Polish Ukrainian relations than aiding Ukraine during the barbaric invasion. I don`t want to start a new thread.

If it was opened, it wouldn't be long before the thread turns to chat about the invasion, and it would just look like the other one. That thread seems to be closed because it went off topic before. Now, would probably not be a good time to open a new thread about Ukraine.
