OK ladies I discussed this with one of the co-hosts from the "new" August DDC and we are going to have a posting war with them throughout the month of March! BRING IT ON I say!

This is how it will work. On each board there will be a posting war thread posted on March 1st. The objective is to get that thread to as many replies as possible by March 31st.

You were brilliant at this last year ladies and we won against August 2011, but remember that DDCs are often busier and chattier than PRs by nature because the DDC ladies on the whole don't have a new baby to care for and often have more to chat about. So we will really have to bring it to win. It's up to you guys whether you see it just as a bit of fun and a posting incentive, or whether you really, really wanna go for it.

There are just 3 rules which I believe are the same as what we had last year:
- No double posting
- Replies must be 5 words or more
- No smiley only posts
Other than this, anything goes. You can chat about anything, on or off topic, use it as a check-in thread, play games in there, post pictures in there, whatever you like!

Feel free to make fighting talk and post incendiary (but respectful) remarks in your siggies. And/or to discuss possible tactics. Just enjoy!

I thought it was a whole month last time...if not sorry, but this is all worked out now. We don't have to be on it posting every minute the whole month - we can case out where they're up to mid-month to know whether we need to have a bit of a spree or not.

Hahaha, we should totally make it a goal that each lady that wants to go for it post at least 5 times a day (when free) just to keep it going!

I think it was only a week last time? No worries though, I'm sure there will be lots of replies.

My memory is even worse since I had Michaela Jess, and it was bad before. I honestly thought a month was right, if I've stuffed up I'm sorry. But really all we have to do to keep it going well is to post in it whenever we come to the board, and then we'll case out if we need to do something more concentrated later in the month.

What does double post mean??

I'm thinking it means.... if I post then some else has to post before I can post again? Even if the second post is different than the first?

or is a double post where I post the same thing twice in a row?

I'm so excited!

I'm not sure what double post means either.. I think it's posting the same thing twice, but I could be wrong!

double posting is posting directly after yourself. Usually, if it's quick, JM will stick it into your previous post, but if you wait a few minutes and nobody posts and you post something else, it's considered double posting.

Ya, double posting is where you bump the thread up with another post when you were the last person to post, before someone else replies. Standard rule for posting wars.

WHERE IS IT?? We're wasting posting time here lol Can someone else start it if the hosts are busy? Since we're here? But I don't know if that's against the rules or something...

I'm sorry ladies, I've had an unexpectedly busy day IRL. It happens to me too you know! Michaela has been unwell and I haven't been able to put her down much this afternoon and had a ton of things to do.

I'm about to post it now. I wouldn't have minded if someone else had posted it.
