Hi everyone,


September has come and gone - what a busy and exciting month on the community!


I can't wait to see what October will bring, and before we dive deeper into Autumn, let's take a look back at what's been happening on the community over the past month. As always, there's been a lot started or continued, and I've collected some of those below. It's not too late to jump into some of these if you haven't had a chance to join in yet!


I'd love to hear in the comments which discussions you liked most over September, and if there's anything you're looking forward to or would like to talk about more next month!

I have enjoyed both Spotlights this month. Always lovely to find out more about our members.

The reviews were a great read.

As I participate in the 4 off topics mentioned, BGT, SCD, F1 and GBBO, I have loved those.

I particularly enjoy the Word Diamond searches. We have one running at the moment so I'm off to see if I can post again. rofl

[ Edited ]

I`ve really enjoyed the topics this month.

It was great to read the two Spotlights and learn more about @TheGreyApe and @AnnieM .

As most of you know, I`m a huge Beatles fan and so welcomed @MI5 `s thread on the 50th anniversary of the Abbey Road album.

I spend a lot of time [too much time?] in Off Topic, and have enjoyed contributing to BGT The Champions and the GBBO threads.

It has been an absolute pleasure to run the Word Hunt Diamond and am grateful to all those who take part; and also to the contestants and those who play along with the White Room Thursday Quiz...

I`m looking forward to see what new threads and posts appear in Off Topic in October....  

Some people see things as they are and ask "Why?"; I dream of things that never were and ask "Why not?"...

Re: Community Recap: September 2019

Hi @ EmilieT,
I liked the spotlights, the 2 reviews.
I join in word association, not really good at brain searching crosswords or similar but join in sometimes. I use the Virtual Lounge, love the photos posted, radio stations by Luke easy one! New Guinea pigs post, biscuits for cats. Enjoyed the voice assistant thread! Viridis visit. Like room 101 gets unpleasant issues into the right place!
Love following Hope Elephant.
What made you happy today? This is a good thread gets lost occasionally but no worries 🙃
All the guides are very helpful, like reading through those.
Nature and bees is very nice talking about plants cats dogs bees and associated comments and banter is so very welcome and funny!
Go October🥳

Re: Community Recap: September 2019

It was a busy month for me, and is just getting busier (I'm selling my house at the mo).  So I haven't been around as much as I usually am.


I do enjoy the spotlights though, and join in on a few of the off topic threads.
