Hi Lorelei, the information needs to go into the stitch source section but I do not have access this this. Sorry.

I can't take credit for the software: ning created that. I just saw its capabilities and figured out how to make it work for us. I do have a facebook account, but only because it is another way of advertizing the entities I care about (my website, NLT, laceIOLI, IOLI.org). I don't like facebook's software. It sends out invitations to play games, using your name without your knowledge. It is awkward for long detailed posts, and is awkward for large numbers of photos.  There are a lot of lace making beginners there. But it is set up for short comments of ephemeral interest, not for substantive, I-want-to-save-this-forever type comments. Facebook focuses on collecting likes and collecting friends. That isn't really what we are about here on needlelacetalk, or on laceioli.

Hi Liz, I am the same as you as I don't use Facebook or Twitter either. And Lorelei has had to help me on more than one occasion as well, for which I am very grateful.

I am one of the "strange " people who do not do Facebook (or Twitter), I like the set up here, as even I, can navigate it - well most of the time!!  Lorelei is always there to help those of us who have difficulties, but even I, who is not very competent with a computer, can navigate around the site, and add photos etc. - A big Thank You, Lorelei,for creating it so it is easy for us all.

Brona's diagrams showing the difference between the puncetto knot and the single and double knots used in oya.

I understand that the favorites button would allow you to keep track of specific things you will want to find again.  We do have a favorites button on the photos, but not on other things.  I have just checked and I can't find any way to add a favorites button to anything except photos.  I really don't want the "like" button. The ning software is quite different from facebook's. Ning's software makes complex discussions of subject matter easy and fluent. Adding photos and links is easy and can be accomplished several different ways.  Facebook focuses on 1 or 2 sentence comments, and adding complex, long explanations is awkward.  I think ning is better for our purposes.  We aren't about collecting "likes" and "friends" (which is what facebook does) but about sharing knowledge and information, and disseminating knowledge about a very rare subject matter.

I agree ma'am.. we need to have chat .. as only that could improve our understanding of the nuances of lace :) What I meant was.. I wanted take note of that :) i tend to forget things so easily and this site has so many tips and advises.. I wanted to collect it all and store in one place :D

Good thinking, Lorelei. The chat is more important.

Comment by Lorelei Halley on December 13, 2013 at 2:34pm

Actually, the software has a "like" button, but I disabled it.  I thought about it and decided I wanted to stimulate conversations, rather than scoring points for who gets the most "likes". The LEADERBOARD shows which discussions, content, and members have been most active.

I wish there was a "like" or "favorite " button here :[
