    Originally the games forum had pretty much only games that were related to this forum - sometimes in a very peripheral or fantasy way but... Slowly off topic types of games started showing up and people seem to like to participate so we left it be... Not a big gamer myself but every once in a while I get in on the word game.

    Just as an example, a while back I wrote two detailed replies about 3/4 shimmies. FYI it probably took me in excess of an hour to compose them.

    Interestingly around the same time there was a thread about learning without a teacher, and there are a number of beginner dancers who ask questions but don't have a teacher. At least several mentioned that they can't take classes because the nearest teacher is an hour away.

    Sedonia, you answers are always brilliant! *hug* They really helped me lots, since I have no access to a live teacher! I agree it is best to attend class, but if there is no such option, then DVDs and forums are better than nothing!

    I also felt quite sad that such great explanations like yours are often lost somewhere within long threads! And ppl ask the same questions over again(untill they discover 'search' feature). I still think you should place some of those awesome posts on a blog or a website! They are REAL GEMS!

    Lots of love,

    I didn't see it as a complaint either. I was concerned that you might quit posting altogether which would be a great loss to us all, and I didn't want my frivolous attachment to the games to be part of the reason for losing you! Shanazel
