Do the DDC posts get archived somewhere or are they lost in cyber-space somewhere?

I think they store everything. - yes, they do. I was able to find my old DDC August 2003...

I am bummed about loosing a lot of mamas from our DDC already!!! There were so many of us, but very few stayed around

Dangitall! The Life With a Babe thread is ok but somehow it feels less intimate. I like our DDC.... it will be hard to keep in touch once it's closed

<sigh>

Although now that I'm spending more of my MDC time on other forums, it's kind of nice to see people I know from the DDC.

I'm still really going to miss this forum, though.

we can always start a yahoogroup if we want to. I'd miss the smilies in that case! But if enough of you want it, I would start it.

Oh wait. We have one already :-) We can just keep using that in addition to the life with babe thread.

Not as intimate and some really snooty, judgemental people. I can't read often because I get annoyed quite often. Reminds me of my days reading at babycenter - except this time it is completely on the other side of the spectrum (super-crunchy vs mainstream).

I hope people will use the yahoogroup!

me, too. Never knew how great a DDC was until baby #3. And some of our babies are not even a couple weeks old! So sad to see it go so quickly!

nak

I imagine it's to encourage participation in the larger mdc community. we have many threads here that would add to other forums (e.g. babywearing forum, diapering forum, life with a babe, etc.) where we could get input from non-ddc members and also provide info for others.

I'm going to miss the ddc, but i do see the point. it's a nudge out of the nest if you will.

I was mega irritated at some of the people on there. But, I guess we can't keep our DDC around forever. :

The Life with Babe thread had snooty mamas? Or am I misunderstanding? I must be oblivious...

I'm going to miss the DDC too. No, I don't wanna be nudged out of the nest! Shouldn't MDC promoted a "CLW" approach to DDCs, too, just let us leave when we are ready?

Hopefully we'll see the Yahoo group pick up some.

CLW approach to DDC makes me !! I love the idea. Yahoo is a great idea.
