Does anyone else keep this site open and listen for the notification ding or is that just me? #addicted

I think I'm more into signing off, coming back to deal with a handful of notifications, and then disappearing back into the void

Well that seems fitting for a ghost warlock.


I don't have the sound on for alerts. The constant 'dings' would drive me crazy(er).

KKGator Level 9 May 27, 2018

Well we wouldn't want that to happen now would we?


I regularly and frequently check for new members near me.

Have you had much success?


I had to turn off the ding ... but ...

YAY another addict! Silent partner? lol

@CreativelyMe There's a ding??? Why wasn't I told? smile005.gif

@patchoullijulie there is if you leave your speakers on smile002.gif

@germangirl90439 Thanks I will check it out. Who doesn't need a little ding in their life?

@patchoullijulie I could use a ding dong every once in a while, lol smile009.gif


That's me!

Sweet. We are not alone.


sorry, but that does sound sad. so here is a "ding" for you.

Rugglesby Level 8 May 28, 2018

Thank you.


I’m a badly phone addicted slave to technology. Between this and Twitter, I’m never gone long. I suppose I was the same with FB before politics destroyed it and I take full responsibility for that. I think what’s good about this is A. You don’t mind if I’m atheist and B. None of you are family or friends (off line).

I pretty much quit FB because of politics too. I was really starting to feel lonely until I began interacting on this site. It is nice to be able to speak without a ton of filters.

It's just you. LOL!

IAMGROOT Level 7 May 28, 2018

Sweet. I am unique lol

  • blush * I do although not all the time. I love the little dinging sound. I also really like this quote - sent shivers up my spine.
pixiedust Level 8 May 27, 2018

Awww thanks pixiedust. I am glad ou liked it too.


Wow i like that I have tasted your mind and i cannot forget its flavour

Rosh Level 7 May 28, 2018

It went "Zip" when it moved
And "Bop" when it stopped
And "Whirrr" when it stood still

And then it dinged

Thanks for the grin.

@CreativelyMe I just thought the song fit the subject ?


My wife gets suspicious if I get dinged too many times, so I must close this site when I am done. I wonder how much I miss.

Kipper Level 4 May 28, 2018

I would ding your wife too if she joined. (That sounds bad but posting anyway)

@CreativelyMe She wouldn't join though. She's not agnostic/atheist. She is one of those others, a Christian. Lutheran, to be precise.

I would love to watch her get "dinged" by another woman. Sorry, just had to do that.

@Kipper LMAO. I set myself up for that one. Is it difficult to be married to each other with those differing beliefs?

@CreativelyMe Yes it is. Luckily she's not as devout as she once was. I think I am wearing her down with my logic. I let believe as she wishes, so long as she doesn't push her beliefs at me. She knew who i was when we got married.

@Kipper Personally I think religion causes a lot of marital issues. Cool you are able to deal with it.


I confess

Kahuna Level 6 May 28, 2018

YAY! An honest addict!


I hope it's not just you and I who are addicted to

EdEarl Level 8 May 28, 2018

Nope, a couple other people confessed too lol


For some reason I have yet to figure out I don’t get notifications on my iPhone.

Mikeb56 Level 7 May 28, 2018

I wish I had a clue how to help you but I am clueless.

@NotAndrew that was my conclusion as well. Oh well.


No sounds.
I'm at home a lot - left side of nowhere - so perusing groups passes the time between doing things. made some awesome biskits and packed more stuff today - moving next week. Won't have Wi-Fi unless I go in to town so I'll be more scarce.

Good luck moving and please ding us from time to time.


Nah, I turned off all outside notifications. The only notification I do get is the on site little bell.

Clare Level 7 May 28, 2018

if you'd make more threads about weed I'd read them

Sorry, weed is not one of my topics of interest but bring some over and I will smoke it with you! I won't know what kind it is or how to grow it but I will definitely enjoy it with you.

@CreativelyMe doubt making it up to Wisconsin is a possibility ... but you can hand out with my cousin Kimmie who lives in some place called Kimberly.


No, I only have this site on my laptop, and when I am away from the laptop I shut things down. I don't have it on my phone, it would be a huge distraction at work.

Yeah. I am so easily distracted so shut off all notifications. Even text. The phone dinged too dang much and I couldnt decipher what app the noise was for. I like it on my phone except the typing part.

@gigihein Typing on the phone is not an easy feat.

@CreativelyMe That is my other issue, I like my full sized keyboard.


I frequently do that.


Nope. I abhor dings. Too intrusive to my brain. Son-in-law got me a smart phone for Christmas. I find it to be a blessing and a curse. Mostly a curse. GPS and camera are handy, but I'd like to fling it out the window every time I here it ding for no good reason.

daylily Level 8 May 28, 2018

This site is the only one I received notifications for because too many dings would irritate me too.

You can turn the notification off. I have most of mine off, and the ringer is off when I'm at work. My calls go to VM during the day, and if they don't leave a message they don't get a call back. If they call more than 3 times without messages they get blocked.

@HippieChick58 Best option would be if you could set notifications to ring only for emergency calls from family.

@daylily good idea!


I don't but only because I work with clients all day. So check it at night or a few times I have at lunch in my car. But I save that for NPR time

gigihein Level 8 May 27, 2018

What does NPR mean?

@CreativelyMe national public radio

@gigihein Ah thanks. I just could not figure it out.

@CreativelyMe to many avronyms


I am going to check out your profile so you get a new visitor ding smile001.gifsmile001.gifsmile001.gif

I do not get notifications for that. I saw someone say they do but I do not and have no clue why or how to change that but thanks for the sweet gesture.

@CreativelyMe I need to shit down the notifications on email. I don't check email much and had way too many


I leave it logged on but no ding for alerts.

I like the dings. Not sure why but I do.
