As we work to improve our services and features at Mothering we also want to simplify and enhance a few things here on the forums. Here's what we're doing to bring you a more enjoyable community experience:
- A clean slate. To launch this new simplified UA we are removing all infractions (alerts & warnings) that have been issued to members in the past. Everyone will start again as if they are new members with no alerts or warnings.
- Free Trading Post threads for sellers. Previously members could post to a thread but only paying members could post a new thread. We have opened the Trading Post up so that it is now free for everyone. The only exception is the WAHM Market which is for Supporter Business Advertisers.
- New private forums. We are offering some new private forums to give members a meeting place to discuss more personal issues. These are entirely member-run and organized and each has its own membership requirements. We have already opened the Single Parenting Lounge and have a few more private forums planned in the near future.
- Over the next week we will open up celebrity gossip discussion in the Media forum, expand News & Current Events, and launch a new Intactivist forum.
If you have questions or suggestions about these changes and new features please post to this thread. Thanks!
