On this Board I have supplied endless rows of posts contaning pics and information about plenty royal events. Often also including special links to museums etc. which were visited by the royals.
Hardly anyone asked specific questions, even though - judging by the number of viewers - a great many people took notice.
In the past I also included some summary underneath the banner on top of the Board, but that hardly initiated questions about the persons involved
The banners on top of the Board (and I solely speak of the GREMB here and not about other Boards where some photos 'linger' around a bit longer) but here on the GREMB I like to follow actual royal events and historical dates. Which is often underlined by the threads posted here.
When a poster starts a new thread and highlights a certain royal ("blast from the past") I always dive into the GREMB Vaults and try to digg up a banner to go along with the issue...AND..I always mention that in a post in that particular thread ("I have adjusted the banner accordingly" or words like that).
So, yes, I feel greatly annoyed when people suddenly feel 'deprived' of information or make it seem as if this Board & its members are not helpful.
On the contrary...many of us, and I am glad to have so many longtime & trusted & eminent royal watchers here, try to provide background info & photos and what not when questions are asked.
Finally: I have been posting wagonloads of photos & info/links to various royal events all the time, but seeing the lack of responses I limit myself nowadays to the ones that are more important. Actually, it is not my task to provide all info 24/7 .... my main task is to see to it that this Board thrives!!
Besides, the Internet provides such a wealth of info & photos that I don't really feel the need to 'take the lead' all the time.
There are more important things in life and this is a hobby for all of us. Something we should enjoy and if and when we have some extra time and like to share, we do so.
