    The consolation is at least the people picked last for dodgeball were normally hit first! Oh wait..

    (Basically, we're all responsible for our responses -- it's not up to other people to always make every person feel totally affirmed. There's no way to get the world to work that way, it has to be a collective effort. And a choice to view an informative thread as a popularity thread is ...really an arbitrary choice.)

    Oh, gosh, you're just so good at explaining. Thanks for taking the time.

    But I'm still confused -- something good versus nothing at all is the choice? It's either a thread that lists people's names and some people's names are never listed, or nothing? or do I have that backwards.

    My intention in starting this thread was not
    1) A popularity contest
    2) An exhaustive list of who is the most expert expert in every possible area

    In fact, having foreseen some possible problems, I even invited people to let me know what their areas of expertise were or volunteer them themselves. Obviously, there are going to be many people that no one knows much about. There are also people who I might interact with, but don't know about all of their interests.

    I certainly don't expect anyone to agree with my choices. The fact that some people like a subject doesn't always make them an expert, as many people have pointed out to me already both here and via PM. This is not a contest. There are not a limited amount of spots. I am asking people whom they would go to if they needed more info on something. And if you feel that you've been left out, it's possible that either I was leaving room for others to add or else that this is a great opportunity for you to tell us more.

    The purpose in doing this is much like the Trivia thread. I want to facilitate ways for new people and older members to get to know each other, as well as learn more myself about the people I interact with here. I often end up discovering something to appreciate that I hadn't been aware of before. In the course of people responding (even via VM), I talk to peope that I never really interacted with too. People appreciate being recognized for what matters to them. If I don't know what matters to you, it doesn't mean you don't have anything good going. It means I don't know you well enough yet WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF DOING THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!

    Oh! And if you find that you are always left off these lists and ostensibly don't want others to feel the same way, start naming some names of people who know about stuff. If it's you, it could be that you aren't a great advertiser. I certainly have realized that I am not. While I don't like to feel boastful or pushy, maybe I need to make more effort to share enough of myself that people know what I've got to offer. I've certainly done more of that here than I ever did before. Even so, all most of you know about me is 1) I'm a fiddler from my avatar 2) I'm Canadian from my information here 3) I'm a teacher because I talk about it in a lot of my posts. You don't even know whether I'm good at any of those. So, while I could feel bad that I'm left off these lists too, I figured I'd try and be proactive instead.

    Yeah, maybe a "what are you good at?" thread would have been more what I would have said.

    Say whaaaat?!?!? Am I the resident sexpert here without even knowing? *checks credentials* Nope, it's not listed in there. Sorry, please don't turn to me for sexpert advice, you might end up with something fallen off.
