Hello everyone and thank you for your patience in waiting for clarification from me regarding Vaccinations posting guidelines.   After reading many of the posts about behavior, rules, and expectations and some of the more contentious discussions in the Vaccinations forums, I've pulled together two policy revisions and clarifications. We will move forward with these to try to bring the tone of the Vaccinations forums back into civility and to uphold Mothering's purpose on...
Thank you ALL for the beautiful photos! It was really difficult having to choose between them and come up with five winners. But we had to choose and so we did, taking into consideration the community votes, the quality of the image, overall participation, and editorial decision. Our winners are:   1st place: yogamamakris     2nd place: bhaktiinbanares   3rd place:  amelie522   4th Place: Chapsie     5th Place: kristinrivard      Congratulations to...
I'm sorry everyone but I have to close this contest until we can work out something else to remove all barriers to entry. So, to keep all of you from wasting time posting photos as we change the contest to something different, I think it is best to close it until we can work out a the details to allow everyone to participate.    Those of you who have already posted entries - no worries. We'll keep your entries and they will count fully in whatever contest we create based...
Do you have a cute pic of your little one in a cloth diaper you'd like to share? Wanna show off a gorgeous wool soaker? Got a great cloth diaper stash you're proud of?

Congratulations!    I linked the group on the Due Date Clubs page so hopefully more will see it now.    Your group will need a couple of leaders so volunteers please PM me. Easy peasy stuff. Just need to keep up the Due Date Roll Coll thread once it is created and let me know if you have any problems. :)
Accusing a member of lying is not conducive to respectful debate. That post has been removed and an infraction issued.    There are other posts here that are skirting the line. If you want to continue posting to this thread and in this forum please stick to discussing the subject and refuting things with information you have without making it personal. 
By the way, we've had a load of flagged posts from both sides. Let's please pause on flagging anything but really severe violations. We are trying to bring new mods on board and work out what the needs are here. We can't manage all of it at once and clogging up the moderation from excess flagging makes it so much harder on the mods in all forums. So try to bear with things that raise your irritation a bit and reserve your flagging for the really nasty stuff, please.  
I'm reading along for now.  I really want to hear what all of you are feeling before I say anything more or decide to make any changes. I'm discussing things with Adina and the mods too so we can get a full picture of all issues we see and that you see. I'm sure you know we are scarce on mods so that is a part of the problem, too. We can't moderate evenly if we don't have enough eyes and fingers to take care of all the work you guys throw at us.    So keep discussing so...
Generally speaking, you should discuss topics, not individuals. Discuss their studies, their evidence, what they report, what they claim - without attacking, namecalling, insulting, or even implying something against their character.  That would be the ideal and we'd probably have far fewer issues here in the forums if everyone abided by that when they posted. 
Mirzam and kathymuggle, I appreciate you have concerns about other behavior in other threads - as do I. But let's stop pulling this discussion into that of other posts of issue in other threads and forums. Forum issues will be reviewed and if changes to moderation need to be made I will post to clarify for each forum.    crayfishgirl, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on the whole conversation and you are correct. But let's end it here.    Thread closed. Further...
