I'm not a mod, but hate to see someone have a question and not be answered.
For gigismom, as soon as i see there is a reply to my post they are answered, i only replyed to her most recent question.

As Ceri said, Emjays question as been answered. My comment is in response to the above quotes.

1) Emjay's question was directed to a mod, not Elaine. So I certainly did not mean to offend Elaine by answering Emjay's post. Elaine's sentence directed to me, was uncalled for and not appreciated. As I said to Elaine in a pm, I treat people on this forum with respect and kindness and I expect the same.

2) I only replied to Emjay's question because of the reason noted above (in my quote) AND I was not impling that she was being ignored by ANYONE, just that a mod was either not on-line or had not seen her question. In recent days several members have complained that the mods ignore certain groups of people, which I do not agree with. I want to make my statement perfectly clear and not give any indication that I feel because her question had not been answered in an hour she was being ignored.

I posted a suggestion in the Suggestion forum; if prior days threads were locked at the end of a day (or as soon as possible after a new day is started) that might end any confusion.

Further, perhaps only moderators and administrators should be able to start new topics in the Waterhole? (see my suggestion in the Suggestion forum).

PS: There is also the problem that folks sometimes post comments and queries in the sightings and camera threads, bumping them up after the day is done. Those two threads are meant to be purely sightings and images minus discussions and comments, right?

I would like to add to the discussion that the last topic someone posted in is at the top of the listing. If I post in a topic that was started last year, that topic will move to the top.

So the new topic was not started below yesterday's topic. It was below yesterday's topic because the most recent post was in yesterday's topic.

I do not have to add anything to Gigismom's and Elaine's replies, they said it all. African time is called CAT
It is not always possible for a mod to be online, so if you want a specific question to be answered by a moderator, do PM the mod you think can answer that question and you will get your answer as soon as the mod comes online.
If you ask a question on the forum, there are many persons who are very capable of answering.

the topic with the most recent post always moves to top of the listings.
apparently not if a new day is started... so when is a new day.. in the past it seems it's been dawn... now it's midnight... clarification, please, mods

For gigismom, as soon as i see there is a reply to my post they are answered,
Emjay, since you have been around for a while..i thought you knew that all pics are posted with AFRICAN time. So at midnight, SA TIME that is the start of a new day.
How far behind african time is Hawaii?
west coast USA is 10 hours behind and east coast USA is 7 hours behind.
and Hawaiii???..=??
There is a topic..called WHEN TO START A NEW DAY...posted by tabs.Yes, I'm aware that they are posted on African time... very easy for me to figure since I'm exactly 12 hours behind. I don't belive you are a Mod, so why are you answering my question? It's moot anyway. I posted at the end of the thread, unaware that a new thread had been started BELOW, not above the day. It's really not important. Just another area that seems to be inconsistent.

Emjay, I am not a mod..but i thought that since you have been around for a while..i thought you knew that all pics are posted with AFRICAN time. So at midnight, Soouth African TIME that is the start of a new day. This is the only common time among all cammers world wide. If i were to post thta a pic was seen on cam at 10:00pm Eastern time..everyone in the world that was watching..would have to go and figure it out.

west coast USA is 10 hours behind and east coast USA is 7 hours behind.

I think we need to move this discussion to the cam discussion topic, agreed? see you there...

As long as I've been looking at Africam a new day starts at 12:00am Africam time. Sometimes people do not realize it is after midnight and will continue to post. I think that is why you might sometimes see the new day started (for example) at 12:13am or 12:20am. But the regular users know to make a new day when the time reaches 12am. Anyone can make a new day, it doesn't have to be a mod. Hope this answers your question. If not, why don't you pm a mod and ask.
