    This is a fun assignment for everyone, new and old. If you enjoy it or learn something new today, then do it again tomorrow. :mrgreen:

    Scroll to the bottom of today’s condos and find the condo with the fewest posts. Open the condo, read it, click on the spreadsheet and give it a quick look, and post a quick message just to say "hope you're having a good day" or "looks good" or even "cute picture." Whatever, just say something so everybody is getting replies to their post. Meanwhile, if you spot something hiding in the short condo that needs more attention, like hidden low numbers or a health issue or maybe the spreadsheet is showing lots of really high or really low numbers, either give some input or send a PM to somebody who can help. You would be surprised how often a subject line like AMPS 303 can hide a +6 of 40 and somebody panicking and waiting for help, and nobody knows it because they didn't change their subject line. Maybe you’ll even meet someone you haven’t talked to before!

    Now go visiting!

    Awesome idea! I would also like to suggest that you spread your support to the other ISGs. Some of the other boards don't see as much traffic as Lantus and we could all use the extra support. :D

    Libby, you're awesome. Every DB cat mom/dad is doing their best and needs a little up-lift. We all know how great it feels to know someone took the time to comment in your condo.

    Great idea to help someone or bump them up if we see they need help. It also is a good feeling to have others visit their condos, if even just to say hello.

    I don't think it's that at all... people assume you know what you are doing and have it under control.

    And they would mostly be correct. :mrgreen:

    you can also learn a lot from reading other people's condos (threads.) mostly the same questions get asked repeatedly, and often you'll glean something that will apply to your own kitty.

    Time to visit someone you haven't visited before or in a while. :D :D it's easy to scroll down the list and see who does not have many posts to their condo and then pop in just to say hi. If we each did one each day we are on the board, there would be lots of support and encouragement spread around :D

    Great advice. I try to do this at least once a day. I know how left out I feel when I don't get very many visits on my condos (a hazard of doing them late at night). Let's make sure everyone feels welcome and cared about.

    Great reminder it's so easy for newer members to go of the bottom of the condo list especially at busy times, and often it is them that are in need of the most support.

    I just love this post and wish it would get bumped up more often.
    I also remember back in the day how disappointed I would feel to get few to no comments on my threads, and you really can find people who are just waiting for someone to reply to a problem or waiting for some support or guidance and don't know to bump up their own condo to get more eyes.

    Great idea! In the Think Tank, there was a topic "Why do some newbies never stay?" and this was a concern: their posts are going down the list!
    Let's bump this and do our homeworks with pleasure!:)
