I thought this time around we might try a separate thread for discussing the book..

Don't try to get the scoop on upcoming posts though.. It probably won't do any good.. since how would I know what Lynn will do next.. I am poorpigling.. not Lynn..

I really should get a new pen name..

I am actually wondering if the moderator can pull off all the dark notices of editing the book for less distraction. I can pull off all but one no matter how many times I edit but there is always one left on..

That "edit" datetime stamp is for "auditing" purposes. It allows readers to know that the post has been edited at least once and if you don't remove the other edit notices, readers can know how many times a post has been edited.

Pretty standard for forum software, as I'm sure you know. Technically, those can be removed via SQL statements in the "back end" database, but it'd be a bear to do and quite tedious.

Okay.. thanks for that info.. it will help me plan my postings better to try to avoid them altogether.. With all the activity here. I often have to leave the posting midstream so to speak.. go take care of whatever is going on.. then come back and post some more. And that sometimes means leaving to go ebay .. hahaha. so I don't want to have to retype it.. I just come back and edit it in again a bit later on..
I suppose having only one edit notice at the end of each section isn't too bad.. beats a whole lot of typos being left in..
I would love to be able to do an entire page all at once.. but I just have too many times I have to get up and do something else. or go somewhere else for a bit.

Hey poorpigling, I wanted to remind everyone that there is a search term embedded in your old stories to make it easier for them to find. It's been easy enough. I added a line like this to your old stories and hope you'll add this to your new story when you are ready.

future search term: poorpiglingthread

So, what's the big deal? It means that when someone uses the PR Search function that all they need to do is enter the word above to search in messages. They don't need a title, they can even (and should) leave the space blank for the member name. If anyone wants to earmark something else, they can learn about it here:
Miscellaneous > Message Searches, Bumping Threads.
And, of course, it will pull up when you search that future search term spelled out above as it is included in the master list in the Bumping Threads thread.

Your most welcome Michelle.. I knew you and some others have been looking for this next segment.. I plan on adding some each day as I can.. except perhaps the weekends.. much like last time around..
And this time I added this thread in case anyone has a question or wants to add anything or such..
It takes a whole lot more time to post it all, typing and proofreading than I thought it did.. And it takes over an hour I think to fill an entire page.. Tomorrow I may time it and just see how long it does really take..

I am enjoying the story. I wonder what was on the roof and how that part goes. Lynn does not have time to build and run a Bed and Breakfast. She wants to improve the entire town now? Will she run for Mayor in the future?

Maybe you should not have given us a forum to talk about the story after all...

Obviously you are reading the story.. but not closely enough or you would have read that the property was to be sold to another buyer.. therefore Lynn had no bed and breakfast plans at all.

She does not reside in that town LTS.. So therefore could not run for mayor. I think she has more than enough to do as it is..
