Thank you thank you thank you for soon expanding/opening up the News and Current Events. That used to be one of my most visited forums. Intelligent discussion, debate and information sharing by a very caring and involved community. I really missed it, and almost threw in the towel when it converted to paid members only.

I don't really care for the celebrity gossip forum-it feels gratuitous.  I don't know, it just seems cheap.  Not like what I think of when I think of Mothering.

I don't think anyone mentioned a forum, just that it would be allowed. So, for example, someone could mention a celebrity breastfeeding, start a thread in TAO, or pull in celebrity news in a reality television thread.

what about the all the posts about the Duggars, Dancing with the Stars, AI, Big Love and the like? Or the posts about the latest best selling novel, top movie, the hottest new diet or TF cookbook? How are those less gratuitous?

I just saw a post obout Sister Wives? Sure it it reality TV but how is that not celebrity gossip? I couldn't post RIP Elizabeth Edwards but talking about the latest Sister Wife scandal is OK?  shake.gif I don't get the rational....

It actually mentions in the OP that the celebrity gossip discussions will be held in the media forum.

Right, but it sounded like some people thought we were opening a whole new celebrity gossip forum.

Must be my mistake re: forum.  I don't come to MDC for celebrity gossip, so it never passed my radar as a desirable feature.  Just me.

Thanks! I saw the answers to my concerns upthread. New color schemes coming soon and "next thread" and "previous thread" is in testing. Both of those make me VERY HAPPY!!! orngbiggrin.gif

 

Awhile ago I saw a message about testing the phone app. I don't have time to test anything right now, so I can wait for that to become a reality. I just spend a lot less time here. (Only access from my computer.) Maybe a good thing? LOL

sunny, the tapatalk app works great now.  The only thing it lacks right now is "new posts" and pm access (I think).  But knowing those features are a go on my other board (vbulletin), I imagine eventually they will be added for MDC.  But really, give it a try, b/c it loads much faster and if you click on "favorites" all your subscribed threads are right there - and when clicked on, they take you to the last unread post.  It's a lot better, IMO, than the mobile skin we had previously.

 

Regarding celebrity gossip - I took it to mean there will be less moderation in the media forum, so when we are talking about a specific television show we don't have to be so careful as to what we say.  As it was, if you shared something you read in a magazine, or heard - ie gossip - about one of the characters or stars, there was a high chance of it being deleted or the thread closing, b/c MDC didn't host celebrity gossip.  It just made it harder to know what you could discuss, as it was easy to cross the line - especially with reality TV b/c for the most part, the people portrayed are real, yk?  I don't think MDC is saying hey, everyone should start threads specifically to discuss a certain celebrity's drama - ie Charlie Sheen.  But that in a thread discussing Two and a Half Men, if something about his real life came up it wouldn't shut down the entire thread.

I can't speak for all those threads, but when I post in the TV forum it is to discuss the show not the actors private lives.

If MDC is going to host celebrity gossip it would be great if it was in it's own forum instead of taking up space in media where we are talking about the art IE the actual music, tv shows and books and not what artists are doing in their private lives IE off work hours.

True, but it could be a subforum just to keep things organized. We haven't decided on anything yet.
