I agree with Amelia.. come on out.. what would be a better way to enjoy your time before you go than with good friends. I do admire your wanting to go serve your country.. this party will be fun and look at all the new friends you will have.. if you do decide to not come on to the party.. be safe and best wishes to you..

How do I become a volunteer mod?
Posted: 9/20/2008 10:21:59 PM
TMF I hate hearing you will not be a moderator... you are one that really would hear both sides .. I, for one, respect you! But I also respect why you would make that decision. Thanks for all your advice and help. I do appreciate you.

Proposed New Event RULES... !!IMPORTANT!!
Posted: 9/20/2008 6:58:46 AM
I will go back and find where it was stated by Puddles in the forums.. I would have NO problem with the same venue allowing parties as long as the venue and hosts do not assume they are the ONLY place to be allowed a party. Just because another group wants to hold one elsewhere there should be no rift or problems. But when money and greed and jealousy get involved.. it is not just the hosts of the other party that gets hurt.. it is all members that do NOT want involved in the so called "drama". If Puddles can find the rules clarification she posted before I do maybe she can post it here as well. I will continue reading until I locate it again.

Proposed New Event RULES... !!IMPORTANT!!
Posted: 9/20/2008 4:47:53 AM
This is just a nitemare waiting to happen.. actually it already happens. If one host is holding parties at the same venue on a continual basis because they have connections there and already has a problem with other hosts having parties at other locations and then is allowed to make money at it or gets kickbacks, do you not think the "problems" will only get worse with the competition? It would then not only be competition for attendees to a party but it would become a problem as they would feel you are taking away from their profits. I have been treated viciously because of holding parties. I can only imagine how bad it will get if they are allowed to openly make money. I am sure there are hosts that have been making money on parties or getting kickbacks for bringing business to a venue on a continual basis... but that is not right. The smiles and laughter and friendships made should be enough "pay" for hosting a party.

As for the voting... bad idea... as others have already stated.. besides.. you can NOT please everyone all the time. IF they happen to not have a good time it is their fault not the hosts. They have the option to leave .. the host is only responsible for securing a venue...not babysitting. Again.. if there is competition among two groups.. you then have those that would intentionally go vote negative on the other site whether they actually attended or not and get others to as well just to eliminate the competition.

Your moderators already deal with enough and even THEY do not make money doing their jobs on here.. and there is NO WAY they can know the whole story of what goes on unless they are where the problems are. Surely you realize this is only gonna make it harder on them.

Proposed New Event RULES... !!IMPORTANT!!

I think that if you just kept the rules that you can not hold events at the same location on a continual basis.. and only charge what the venue charges as a cover to all patrons.. it benefits numerous businesses in the area .. spreads the word about POF .. allows singles to get to see venues with the company of others instead of going alone.. and there is no way a kickback could happen unless the host has connections with every establishment in town. There is not that much expense in getting friends together for a party.. IF the host wants to go all out and decorate and give out prizes and such that is their choosing.. more power to them.. but I have found in hosting and cohosting several parties that the members of POF do not care if its all decorated.. they just want to have fun.. meet other members and hope to meet someone special. By allowing someone to charge as a host.. makes them an employee of POF I would think. They are advertising the party.. making a profit.. how are they to report that income to the IRS?

Just wanted to let you know I talked to several out of town friends and they will be making their reservations this weekend and thought it might be good to remind everyone to make theirs early as well. One week from tomorrow and what a great group we have.. as usual. Can't wait to see everyone again and the new ones that I get to meet! We do know how to have a party...

Roseanne.. that is what REAL friends are for.. to welcome you and treat you right. that is why our parties are successful.. good people meeting good people and having fun and enjoying life.. and maybe just maybe.. meet that special someone. So glad you and your friends are going to make this one. And to everyone else that has signed up.. thanks and be sure and let us know how many of you are bringing guests.... they will NOT regret coming.. to all of you for signing up early. If any of you of have not attended one of our parties before.. I encourage each of you to go to the Arkansas forums and you can see the pics from all past parties.. they speak for themselves because they show how much fun we all have at ours. The last one at Cajuns we had people signing up to see what all the excitement was about with such a large group. So, go check them out.. we do know how to party! And you guys are what make it so much fun!

Hey Jim, I heard today that there will be LOTS there for the party.. I did not realize this was such a hot spot for sports fans.. they hang out there after all the Travs games and events at the Alltel arena.. sorta an upscale sports bar... but someone wanted me to let everyone know this is in the Argenta area where they have done all the renovations... so any of you that have not signed up yet.. go ahead and lets get the numbers up and start filling up your dance cards.. and get ready for another great party that is always fun.. lots of laughter and lots of dancing and lots of friends to meet!!!!!!!!

Motoman... we of course would love to have you at the party.. I also have friends that are riding that weekend so I understand the love of riding.. now honestly.. I would go to the party if my sleeping option was a ditch on the ride.. but that is just me.. Whatever you do have fun and always be safe. There will be other parties and other rides.. so it is strictly up to you.. and NO ONE will be upset at you...

Italian River... Jim is NOT that quiet all the time.. well he is when NTL is around.. but not by choice.. But he is ALWAYS the gentleman. He volunteered to take this party on after I had been talking to the manager for months and just stepped up to the plate and did what needed to be done.. and I appreciate him and Amelia. Both are great friends and wonderful people. So yes, I would be his DD if he needed one.. but I can not see that being a problem with him. I do not see you in the signup .... you are going to be there with us.. Right? Sign up and show your support of his efforts and pass the word around.

Also, a big HELLO to my friend Seeker.. it is so good to see you are going to join us.. been a while... Ladies I can tell you... this guy is another sweetheart.. one you will want to get to know...

What a great time this is going to be!!!!!

I hope that group of ladies shows up again.. got lots more guys to introduce them to.. hehehe. I have heard about Cornerstone from several of the POFers at parties.. so this should be alot of fun. It is so nice to have so many places in the Little Rock area that are working with POF and allowing us special rates and discounts and offering us a chance as a group to try new places.

Now lets ALL spread the word .. we are at it again...

Why do men mislead??
Posted: 8/27/2008 4:37:40 PM
Both Genders are guilty of misleading... no doubt. I have noticed that there seems to be more games and lies and general BS in the singles world now days than there was before. Its kinda like " I will hurt you before you can hurt me" or " Someone did it to me so its ok to do it to someone". Jealousy, greed, spite, revenge, and outright lies and those that find it a joy to intentionally hurt others. God must really be shaking his head and shedding tears.
