Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Registration Rules

    (Just as a reminder, these are the rules you signed up to when joining the discussion boards)

    Registration Rules:

    Registration to our Discussion Boards is free but we do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.

    Although the administrators and moderators of The Mix boards will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, we cannot guarantee to review all messages.

    All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of The Mix boards or Jelsoft EnterprisesLimited (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

    By registering, you warrant that you have read and will abide by the following rules:

    ∑ Harassing, threatening, abusive, vulgar, obscene, defamatory, racist or otherwise unlawful posts are not permitted.

    ∑ The owners of The Mix boards have the right to remove, edit, move or close any threads or posts for any reason and without notice.

    ∑ Using these boards to post spam (unsolicited advertising) is not permitted. Anywhere, seriously, not even in profile 'webpage' links. We check and if an account is simply posting spam it'll be deleted.

    ∑ Links to inappropriate websites (hateful, defamatory or illegal) are not permitted.

    ∑ If you intend to post a message asking for help from users on projects, surveys or if you are a member of the press looking for people to contribute to articles or stories you must first obtain permission by contacting The Mix Staff.

    ∑ Quotes from other sources or sites must also include the URLs of where you found them.

    ∑ Anonymity is important on The Mix. If you know who someone is offline, or engage with them on other websites, keep their identity to yourself. There is also no need to mention users' online activity away from The Mix.

    ∑ You will respect the opinions of others. Just because you don't agree, it doesn't give you the right to make personal attacks on that person.

    We will ban people who continually refuse to work within these rules.

    - - - - - - -

    In addition to these rules there are individual guides to each forum as a sticky on the thread lists.

    You should also look at the Good Manners Guide, which explains some of the more 'unwritten rules' that have developed over time here.

    We also have a Moderation Policy, which explains the actions mods take encourage a welcoming and supporting environment.

    We're Aife, Mike and Emma: the staff team here at The Mix.
    While we can't offer support via this account, if you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.
