In the club members thoughts, sometimes there is a blank topic (or at least I can't see it)  but others must be able to because the responses keep going up!  Strange!  Anyone know why?

It happens when the poster doesn't put in a title/subject. If you click on the little blue rectangle (looks like a page with the top right corner folded) it will take you to the last posted message, just go back to the beginning from there.

Well sometimes people do this by accident, but sometimes they do it on purpose :-)

Then they call it a "secret meeting."

On the topic listing, over at the right you will see a column "last post."  On that column you will see a little blue box.  Click on that to get in.

And now you know the secret password!  Enjoy!

I always thought that blue thing looked like a fruit or something. The thing you click to see the topics wiht no subjects. *lol*

Sometimes its fun to just have a silly thread for no reason.
