Still not telling others what your first name is. Seems strange to me. Maybe that gives you a false sense of power over others, I don't know.

 

My name is German.

 

It's Getta.

 

Getta Grippe.

 

I trust this soothes you.

Still hiding. Come out of the closet and tell us your name, so we can get a sense you are legit. Otherwise it's a childish game, where nothing said can be deemed to have any value. Why are you allowing me this power? If you had just said "Hi I am Mike" and tried to be civil, even if your name was something else, that would have been a positive step forward. But instead you are choosing to convey to us that you have no manners. Ultimately you're just a made up name on the internet who means nothing. Why would you allow yourself to mean nothing? I don't get that at all.

For the love of God, would someone -- Errol, Toups, someone -- please fix the damn Ignore Users feature?  And if you can't do that, then just do us all a favor and ban this sanctimonious Nazi [!@#$%^&*]?

 

I didn't know until Errol said it the other day that he's apparently left most board moderation up to literally just Toups. At that rate we'll be told to "just ignore him" for nine months until Toups gets done reading the ratings.

Why are you using that sort of screen name and not using your real given name? 

 

Seeing as you are now sticking up for the word "Aryan" post-World War II, let me just tell you that using your full name on the Internet in 2018 is a big mistake for you if someone comes along more vindictive than any of us. And I'm saying that as a Jew.

In Italy no less. Did Reva have amnesia twice is what I don't get. When they brought her back in the mid-90's, were the Amish years established as all that had happened to her? How could they introduce the San Cristobel backstory years later and make it fit. It's just weird.
I thought it was such a missed opportunity never to bring on Marissa, Olivia's sister and Jon's adoptive mom, in the mid-00's. Instead they killed her off. There could have been a good rivalry with Reva over their son and an interesting relationship with Olivia, maybe an affair with Josh down the line.
I always thought anyway Olivia could have become Roxie before she appeared on air, with a mystery as to how she ended up in SC. And I thought Crystal C. would have fit the role well. Then again I also felt the looking for Reva's long-lost sister could easily have been reworked into looking for Roxie who would have escaped the mental institution. And if Reva just had to have a surprise sibling, wouldn't it have made far more sense for it to be deserter Hawk's kid rather than Sarah's?

 

One thing that always seemed fuzzy to me was how did she get from Florida to Italy to San Christobel to Goshen? All that traveling and she never saw fit to go back to Springfield to see Josh, Marah or Shayne? It seemed like different headwriters came up with different versions of where she had been during that five year period when she was off screen (1990 to 1995). And if you try to put it all together and make a coherent timeline of it, it's nearly impossible.

 

I did love the whole San Christobel arc, so that's the version I choose to go with, even though there are holes in some of that. I like to think that when the car went off the bridge in Florida, some fisherman must have found her in the water and took her to San Christobel. Still we were never told how she actually met Richard and became Princess Catherine.

Totally agree with your first paragraph. That's how I interpret it, not the way the other poster working on some research project keeps trying to spin it.

 

:D A research paper that has been approved, that will be published, that I am now preparing a conference presentation for, and that I got to interview personally for several hours two major soap opera headwriters for--just to be clear.  Oh and, cards on the table, one that you PMed me about earlier today for God knows what reason with this veiled threat (promise?) and I quote:

" It seems like you are back in attack mode. You do know that I won't be able to support your research project after this. There's a consequence. I thought you were more intelligent and level-headed. "

I have no idea how you were ever going to "support" my research, and why I should be concerned that you no longer will, but.  Yeah yeah, Jean Rouverol was a professor of yours, and she gave you a copy of some unproduced soap from Robert J Shaw, but really I have no idea how that would help or support me--particularly since the emphasis of my research in the end--and this was partly due to the suggestion of both major soap HWs I spoke to who found the idea compelling and not sufficiently explored in soap research, has to do with an aspect of soaps that you have already complained on here that people are focusing too much on.  So cheers!

Warnings have been submitted and the issue should be resolving itself.

 

As for the ignore button issue, I've been investigating and it appears the ignore feature not working is a widespread issue among other Invision Power Board. So far there has been no updates from Invision on a resolution. I'll keep everyone posted when I have more, or a resolution.

Haha!

 

I used to be so disappointed on the days they didn’t show the cast photos in the closing credits. Like crestfallen.

I LOVE those profiles.  Wish someone would do something similar for other soaps (no, I'd never have the time or patience to do any myself :P )

And LOL Soapsuds

I love the care put into them. I would love to see bio's on other soap characters too. Congrats on the approval  of your research paper.  giphy.gif
