That made me smile too, I think there should be a forum called 'fringe benefits' for hair tips.

I don't get that one, 'fringe benefits' :confused:
But that's probably because I'm Flemish :)

Fringe = bangs.

Maybe some of us thought the administrators were such serious minded folk that they didn't make jokes (!).

But the Mod and Guru titles tell us different.

Clever indeed and I love it! (My memory tells me that our member Robbi suggested using this title instead of The Main Forum a good while back). :)

Fringe = bangs.


To complete that pun, it helps to know that the word "Fringe" and means "something which is peripheral or secondary." So there's the main thing and then there's the fringe thing.

There's nothing ungrammatical about it whatsoever. Both "main forum" and "mane forum" are grammatical, they just mean different things. In this case, it just so happens that the one works as a pun for the other. :wink:

I remember it took me awhile, to get it, maybe because I'm not native English speaking. But there was someone on the old boards who had a hair journal with a similar title somhow and then it clicked.

The Main Forum = the primary forum
Mane = like on the back of a horse's head/neck; or a person's hair

So it is the primary forum that is also about hair.

Aha, yes :) I know that fringe are bangs, but I still didn't get it.
Thank you for explaining!
