I'm getting a little confused from all the back and forth responses as to what's happening. Should anyone who wants a reading just go ahead and start a new thread with the "DivEx" label or should the request be brought up in this post first? For those who are offering readings- do we just jump into a "DivEx" thread with a reading or is there some green light to wait for?

If you want a reading, you post here Smiley
Then it's discussed here (which cards/spreads/first readers) and the 'DivEx-name' posts get started when the reading is ready to be posted.

Which reminds me... *off to shuffle the cards*  Wink

(Maybe someone else can come up with another idea to avoid confusion. I think it ok, but this thread might get to long with time..)

Then you just jump at the guinea pigs  Grin
And you can give another reading in an already existing divex thread, because we want to learn from each other Smiley
And the querent gets more information, too.

Y'know, I don't think that's such a bad idea.  I can see this thread getting all kinds of confusing with querents posting requests and various readers responding to various requests with questions or offers.  I think we've already had one miscommunication as to whom a question about a request was addressed.  It will only get worse as the thread gets longer, I think.

Maybe a way to go would be for anyone who wants a reading to post their request as the first post in their own DivEx thread and the readers can go from there.

Waldfrau, this is your baby.  What do you think?  Is this an evolution of the premise that would keep things clear and moving along?

General discussion should of course stay in this thread, especially since it explains the whole DivEx system to newcomers.  Either that, or sticky this thread at the top of the SIG so newcomers can see what we're doing before jumping in.

I like that idea. Personally, it'd be a help to me to have the original question right in the thread to refer to instead of hunting for it in this thread.

I think it's a good idea for new seekers. I'm not sure if it works well for 'old' guinea pigs who request their second reading. Some readers may follow their DivEx-threads some may not and maybe they want to attract other readers for a change.

I think new seekers should better open a new thread for themselves straight away. Seekers who have a thread already should post in their thread first if they just wish another reading by the same readers or any reader who is following the thread. If they wish to get readers who are possibly not following their thread they may post in the organizing thread. So we'd reserve the organizing thread for stuff that isn't automatically recognized by everyone you want to reach. (New threads are automatically recognized by every reader so requests from new seekers don't need to go in the organizing thread.)

Does this sound okay or too complicated?

Cheesy Sorry, never thought about that when I volunteered. If you want I will give you info, but like you said it will be an interesting learning experience. 
I'll throw the cards and ask the backround questions later, that way I learn much better. Wink I can try to sort the cards into the right fields. You'll just have to give me a clear feedback in the case I get on the wrong railroad with something.

I'll do a celtic-cross spread with the question 'What will be important for you in the next 3 months?' if that's okay for you. I'll do it tomorrow (is it already 1 am?!) later today, now I need some sleep.

I think that would be useful either way. Smiley

When we have the first baby steps figured out I wonder if a moderator could add a link into the intro post linking to a specific later post in which I explain the system again with all the changes included. So a newcomer doesn't have to read the whole thread in search for directions. But I think we better wait with a new explanation post until everything is going stable so we don't have to change the changes all the time.

Sure. Just give me a link to the later post you want linked in the first post.

i don't understand what you mean by this. If I am not reading or following someone's div/ex thread, how will I automatically know if she/he has posted a new one? By checking the divination board? I don't use the forum that way, although I guess just for this purpose on this board, I could.
