Diapering Reorganization, please read - Page 2

post #21 of 165
I have to agree with Alice *yea thats right alice I am agreeing with ya :LOL*

I like it all together and I think the segregation is going to make it harder for the existing members. It is hard enough to keep up with one forum let alone TWO now.....

I certainly never said that people shouldn't ask questions or that questions bother me (and I'm definitely aware that experienced CDers also ask questions, since I ask them myself on the board all the time). Please read my post(s) again. I love that people ask questions. I think it's great! And I have always been more than happy to answer them.

The only thing that's bothering me is this attitude that I'm seeing now that if a question isn't answered to the poster's satisfaction, that we (the diapering regulars) have somehow neglected our job.

And if questions were to go unanswered, it would make the newbies feel like we're not wanted - we're not part of the clique.
As has been said, the questions do get answered here.

I would hate to see that happen on this board, because it's such a friendly and helpful board.
I would hate to see it happen to, so I hope the attitude I'm seeing changes to a more appreciative one, so that we all continue to be just as happy about answering questions as we always have been.

And isn't the ultimate goal to have more babies successfully CD'd
That certainly is one of the goals of this board, and I for one am of the opinion that the WAHM stocking threads do not hinder the accomplishment of that goal.

regardless of if it's in a flat or a super duper hyena diaper?
It certainly doesn't matter to us whether someone uses a flat or a hyena diaper. Both choices are equally honored. Anyone who thinks differently should spend more time on the board.

I haven't seen any mention of requiring people to answer questions in order to be allowed to post? If you don't want to answer questions, you don't have to. No one is forcing you to post in question threads. The types of posts you do shouldn't change due to the addition of subforums.
That's not what I meant. What I meant by being forced to focus on the question threads is that threads that are of interest to experienced regulars (as well as to many inexperineced newbies in my opinion) including stocking threads, are being moved off of the main board for the purpose of focusing more attention on the question threads. In my opinion, the question threads already get tons of attention.

And, I will probably start to hang out more on the Stocking page and less on the main Diapering board, since the Stocking page will have what interests me. So it could have the unintended effect of less questions being answered.

When I was a diapering newbie, if the boards had been divided up in the manner they will be now, I would have been so intimidated by the "Stocking and Show Off" board (so much lingo I don't understand, etc.) I probably would never ever go there, and I would miss out on so much neat stuff.

But, whatever. I hope since we now have a "Stocking" board, we can have a sticky that lists the regular stocking times of some of our WAHM's, especially the congos, since I can never remember them.

I don't have the time to go thru posts at 2 boards.. I liked the one stop shopping - I found out about stockings and saw beautiful new things and asked and answered questions... I'm sure I'll be posting a lot less if I have to do it on 2 boards.... :
post #27 of 165
guess im weird but i like the idea of seperating. I for one have had a few posts go unanswered or 1 or 2 replies with "sorry cant help ya" only to see the rest of the board with "look what i just got" or "what should i buy with my $200 dh gave me"
When i was a newbie i had tons of questions and your right i probly wouldnt go into the "other" section because i didnt need to. IF i ever decided i wanted to show off or something im sure i would have figured it out though!
p.s. love the sticky idea!!

You know sometimes we just genuinely don't know the answer to a question. The two people who posted that they couldn't help bumped the thread and gave others an opportunity to help if they could. But if someone asks a question that no one knows the answer to, what are we supposed to do?

I am on dial up now and can't imagine having to wait for more then one section to load. As it is I already post less then I used to.

I wonder if we could have a vote about the change.
post #31 of 165
That is the same thing that I asked the last time that this was bought up and I got told that it had already been decided and there was nothing to vote on. However, my point was then, as it is now, that the as the membership increases the dynamics of the board changes. So I agree and think there should be a vote, but I don't think that is going to happen.

Oops so excited that everything will be that much easier to find, that I forgot to say I like a name like Diapering 101, or Everything You Wanted to Know About Diapers for the larger forum. Maybe something like She Shops. She Stalks. She Scores! for the stocking and showing forum?
*IF* the board must be divided, I love these name ideas. That said, I think it would be for the best to leave it together.

PErsonally, when I come here, I come because it is fun to see what is new and hot in the diapering world, and then while I am already here, I try to answer some questions. But I do that as an afterthought, after the hyena topics have brought me here.

Just my experience.

Great idea (the reorganization)!


I like fullofgrace's suggestions, as well as:

Diapering Discourse for the talk threads
and
Diaper Exhibit (or Diaper Display) for the 'show off' threads.

Exactly!!! (I'm on dial-up too! And it takes F O R E V E R to load each page!) I'd prefer it was left as it was.

I like the idea of splitting the forum. As an impoverished international mama, there's a lot of stuff that comes up on the diapering forum that I either can't afford, or can't get posted out to me- and while most of the time I can look and be happy for other people, there are times when I'd chew a (snappi) leg off for a credit card and a US postal address.
Surely, as splitting the forums will make it easier to find what you need (either the fluffymail stuff, or the how-to information) this would be a benefit to people on dial-up? Or am I missing something?

You're missing something. I'm not on dial-up but I remember those days cleary. Everytime a mama on dial-up clicks on a new forum it takes forever to load. Individual threads don't usually take so long unless there are a zillion responses. I think what the mamas on dial-up are saying is that they'd prefer to visit a single forum that touches on a variety of topics, selecting for themselves what threads they'd like to read, rather than having to forum hop to view all the different subject matter.
