please review the thread,
names marked with i think should maybe be removed
names marked with : are up next for the same
mark current active members
and are celebrating previously unknown pregnancies, they can be moved to the graduates list

all members have been link to their profiles so that future cleaning will be way easier than what i just did! can folks please check that i link you to your right one?

how do you gals feel about me cleaning up the list as i have mentioned?

what kind of timeline for inactivity do you think is a good cut off? Does it matter if they are active in other areas of MDC or not?

let me know


And Welcome to March!!!!!

post #4 of 227
Hello and Happy March to all! There is snow halfway up the windows here- super high!
I am on CD 8 and finally starting temping and using Fertility Friend. It is fun!
I saw my chinese doctor this week. He had told me repetedly that my pulse and health were somewhat weak, due to the fact that I had many dental surgeries and novocaine in the last coule of years. So he had said my body wasn't easily ready to make a baby.
But, hooray- this last time he said all is looking good! My pulse is healthy, my uterus is healthy. He said if I conceive I will be healthy and the baby will be healthy.
He did say, which he has been saying a lot, that it will be much easier to conceive in late April-early May when it is warmer.
So I am using this month to chart and get clearer aboiut when I O. I might even be away when I O but hopefully not, but I have alot of faith in this chinese doc so I am really looking towards spring to conceive. May 1st is Beltane- the pagan fertility holiday where traditionally people gather around fires outside and copulate and conceive!
There is an apple orchard near my house and I always thought it would be cool to conceive my baby in the apple orchard when the trees are in flower!
So this month I will not put too much stock in as here in northern New England it is very much still winter.
But I am happy to know I am healthy and good to go soon.
Also, my birthday is in 12 days and I will turn 35.

Peace and fertility!

First I would like to say wow to Rivka for her research into the goings on of all the members! Also you're doing such a service by being threadkeeper twice in a row!!! I did it twice, but it was at two different times. I don't know if I'm up for a third time as threadkeeper, but I'm not opposed to it. I also think that those who haven't been active in many months should be removed and those who are pregnant, but didn't come to spread the news here should be graduated so we can get a better grip on the numbers... That's just my 2 cents....

Katie34, where in northern NE do you live? I live in the Portland, ME area. Just curious because if you lived closer we could hook up or something....

Removal and clean up guide?

I agree on cleaning up the list, that was my goal. I am a organizer(very different than being neat btw) so the research was kinda fun.

here is the guideline i suggest, let me know what you all think of it:

Any member that had not posted anywhere on MDC in 6 months or here in 9 gets removed automatically

: Those that have elsewhere on MDC within 6 months but not here in 2, get a pm from the thread keeper inviting them back, if no response they get removed.

Ladies that did not come back to tell us they got preggo get flogged with a wet fish. Then moved to the graduates anyway since we love babies!

Does this sound manageable and fair? with members names linked to their profiles it is really quick to check recent activity for this purpose. I will look back over the sorting i did last night later today and separate them into the applicable groups and ask again for the ok to go ahead before deleting anyone.

Thanks for all the support through all of this as it has and will continue to take a major toll on our family and my sister's friends.

Great thread Rivka and GL to all for a productive March!

I agree with all of it except for the part about people who are active elsewhere on MDC-- I would give everybody 6 months and then put a little note at the bottom of the first thread that says something like "The TTC#1 In Your 30s Thread welcomes everyone who's interested to participate in this thread. You are welcome to come and go as you are able, but please be aware that in order to keep the list of members manageable, the username of those who haven't participated in the thread in 6 consecutive months will be removed-- if your name is removed, you are always welcome to rejoin the thread at any time."

PMing them seems to be going a wee bit too far, people should be free to come and go on the thread without pressure and even a nicely worded PM could come off as "pressure-y." I would just go back and remove people who haven't been active on this thread in 6 months and put the explanation at the bottom of the thread so they know that they are welcome to rejoin. Just my 2 cents. And, a serious BRAVO to you for going back and hunting everyone down!

Oh Laura, I'm so glad they finally have made an arrest! I know it doesn't take the pain of losing your sister away, but I hope this is the start of getting some justice for her loss.

i can agree with this, so a flat 6 months of not posting in here gets a name removed, and anyone that has posted at least once since then (currently would mean the Sept Thread and onward) would stay in, and no other activity like pm's?

do we think that the preggo's, that i found, but had never come back to tell us should be added to our graduate list? We never retire folks from that, so someday it will start to get too long, for now i just love looking at it!

i like the way you stated the pain post note, i'll include it.

ETA ok updated the main post with suggestions included, if folks can give there info a once over to make sure i did not mix anything up in all my updating.

thanks

I would go ahead and add them to the graduate list and maybe delete the graduates from 2006? I think there are enough grads from 2007 to give everyone hope/ confidence that they can/will conceive.
post #18 of 227

Wow - March is busy already!

Rivka, Great job on the list; thank you!! I think you're right on track with the three list guidelines.


Katie, that apple tree conception dream may be a bit difficult with the snow - but good luck!


elspethshimon
, congrats on the pregnancy! May the next 9 months go by quickly and healthily (I know it's not a word but it fits). :

Frog, Happy Bday! :

As for myself, I start testing Friday as AF is scheduled to arrive Saturday. My temp did dip today at 7 dpo so perhaps, just perhaps, if the temps go back up and stay there...well, you all know the drill. Think I'll throw in an extra prayer at church tomorrow morning (for all of us). :
post #19 of 227
A big : to frog!
post #20 of 227
Nice looking thread! I love the ideas for keeping it clean...

Frog - Happy Birthday!!

Laura - I'm so happy for you! I know the whole situation is really, incredibly hard but it must help to have found the potential perpetrator. I sure hope he gets his due. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts, honey.

I miss you guys... (I do a lot of stalking tho.) Maybe a few of you could come join me in the graduates thread?
