Warning messages
« on: February 26, 2008, 10:43:26 pm »
I would like to propose a change to the red warning message to read a more friendly:
Hi, we think it's great that you are keen to reply to this thread but someone else has posted before you, so maybe you'd like to review theirs in case you want to amend yours ;D

Other suggestions welcome ;D

I have a feeling that this topic will turn out into one which you want to read when feeling down or something.. ;)

Do you really think you are alone in this busy thread. Maybe you should come back later and the floor will be yours. In the meantime I suggest you go make tea instead

Peak times only

Warning why do I always have to tell you. Either speed up your typing speed or get a PA. It would give me time to take a break. I'm a supercomputer not a parrot.

I'm Infinitely sorry

I think it should be in the form of a Haiku  ;)

I can try one but not very good:

Your response
delayed. Another

Warning: Infinity is playing in this topic, you'll have to keep clicking 'post anyway' a few times, or might want to go to bed now instead.

Warning there are lots of chatterboxes in this thread, so only amend your post if you feel you have less to say than anyone else ;D

My first Haiku was 3/5/3 but would be easier as 5/7/5 if anyone else wants to have a go:

Reply in silence
Another has posted
Review and reflect
