If any board member sees something on TV, in the newspaper, posters, ads, bulletin board notices, etc. that you think will benefit another or the community, please post.
For example: flu shot clinics, health fairs, fundraising events, volunteering, alerts, etc.
This will be of great help to others on this board or they can pass it on to someone who is interested. .
Don't forget to post which island the event is on.

Thank you!

This forum is, as is clearly stated on the front page, a forum for people LIVING IN THE VI, not just moving here. Nothing the OP mentioned is off-topic. Don't send them away.

So Ms Tramm, why be redundant when it's already in play? No one is being sent away, just being redirected to the spot created for what they were asking? There are four forums. Just click on forum list and you will see.

Oops! Sorry! I posted in the wrong forum on this board. I meant to post under Community.

It would be nice if board members would try to post community happenings when they come across it, so other members can participate and/or pass it on. Just would like to informed of island events. That's all. Thanks!

Dude, I so do not need your direction on how to use this forum. My point was only that the info the OP was seeking was absolutely on topic for this forum. The other forum of which you should speak is the redundancy vis-a-vis "LIVING IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS".

If you want to talk continental politics or French hairdressers in Paris, the other forum is for you.

You're entirely missing the point and maybe you do need some direction on how to use this site. There are not just two forums on this site, there are FOUR and there is a community forum already in place and the OP did mean to post there as she already noted ...

No need to be rude to Ronnie.
He wasn't being rude to you, IT.

Dudette, you do need direction. If you click on the "Forum List", above on the left, you will see that there is one for Community and one called Under a Coconut Tree where you can write of your continental politics or French hairdressers in Paris. That's all I was saying Ms Tramm. As OT says, there are 4(four) forums.

But the OP, my emoticon-ridden friend, wanted information about "flu shot clinics, health fairs, fundraising events, volunteering, alerts, etc." That is totally on-topic in this forum because it involves living in the V.I. You advised her that "[t]here is a whole forum that is set up on here for that very thing", which isn't true, as you agreed in your last post when you stated that the forum called "Under a Coconut Tree where you can write of your continental politics or French hairdressers in Paris". Those topic areas, however, were not what the OP was soliciting posts about.

That is all.

Alana. Please. Get a sense of humor. It's getting tiring.

I have a great sense of humor. I just don't see the point in you always being so rude and negative to people so regularly. It's quite a turn-off.
I am sure you have much to contribute and it wouldn't hurt you to be nicer.

Then we'll have to disagree, and my advice to you is to stop responding to my posts if it's such a "turn off" for you. No one else has been as consistently argumentative with me as you. You're point has already been made numerous times. I get it. We get it. It needn't be made again.

Also tiring that you're (and still rudely) belaboring a point which is simply irrelevant.

Re-read the OP's first post.
Re-read the OP's second (correcting) post.
Re-read Ronnie's post(s) and all may become clear.

The OP was encouraging posters to contribute to the Community forum and on which she intended to post. Only one poster is antagonistically muddying the waters here on a very simple thread and making a mountain out of a molehill.

And there is a Community forum if you look and see. I fail to understand why you don't look at the forum
list to see what I am talking about.

I did and I quoted. And Alanna and I were done until you butted in. I stand by my analysis. I was simply informing the OP that this forum was perfectly appropriate for those types of posts.

All is perfectly clear. Can we stop now?

I did. It's a great forum. It has nothing to do with "living in the V.I.", but rather is a place to discuss things unrelated to "living in the V.I."

It's a place to post community activities or notices for events here in the Virgin Islands for those of us living in the Virgin Islands to be aware of.

See COMMUNITY:

Events, groups, classes, activities, summer camps, volunteer

Obviously you are blind or obtuse if you don't see the forum titled Community. Until you see it, you won't understand what I am talking about.

Dude, emoticon-ridden friend signing out.

How many different ways does it have to be explained to you that there are FOUR forums on this site, one of which is NOT the new forum "Under the Coconut Tree" which you persist in referencing but a separate forum entitled "Community"?

I agree with Ronnie wholeheartedly. Blind or simply obtuse, time to stop beating a dead horse, get your facts in order and then, if you feel so inclined, mutter a little, "my bad" and then leave well alone.

Great suggestion Beachcomber! :@) And just an idea, but cell phones make it easy to snap a photo of community event flyers! And then the details can be shared on the Community sub-forum.

Going to close this thread... but just to clarify... there are currently four sub-forums:

1. General/Relocating (the forum you are on right now)

2. USVI Classifieds

3. Community (forum for events, plays, camps, dance lessons, sport events, teams and so forth...)

4. Under a Coconut Tree (for off topic)

All four can be seen by clicking "Forum List" in the message board options at the top of the board.
