I am wondering?

Edited to add. As of now only 3 out of 72 ever go there. I am getting 1-2 requests for gals info a week. I am getting 10-15 to add a week. This just isn't working like it use to. Any ideas? Obviously they are NOT going to put it in diapering, so we need other ideas. Help me out!

No...I didn't know it was there until a few days ago when a post I wrote was moved. LOL Seems like it would get more traffic in the diapering forum.

Oh forgot to say - I think I would pay more attention to it if it was in the Diapering area.

I didn't know it was there until the last day or so when I figured there must be a "new" one with posts being moved. Wouldn't have known where to look for it.

I don't understand why they don't have it as a sub forum of diapering rather than off where it is. I would check it (and use it) if it was a sub forum here but as it is I don't.

It has been requested several times. By having it in TP the posts don't count toward you post count. Not sure if that is the reason though.

I didn't know it was there until my threads to the Diaper Fairy were moved there.

If you post a thank you to the Diaper Fairy in that Diaper Fairy forum, how much you wanna bet that they'll never read it there and think you're rude by not thanking them when you actually did - but in a forum that gets no traffic. Odds are they'll more than likely read it here compared to the Diaper Fairy forum.

That's just my thoughts, and if i ever get diaper fairied again, im still tempted to write my thank you in this forum because i know at least the diaper fairy would see it.

I don't see why it's not a sub-forum of the Diapering forum either.

Frankly, this is why I requested to begin deleting off topic posts made in Diapering and issuing alerts to the OP. Since that was implemented the number of off topic posts started in Diapering has dropped off dramatically and I have begun to move posts with redirects once again. The fairy board was set up to alleviate the Diapering board of the heavy fairy posting. It is located as a subforum of the Trading Post because that is where all of the giving forums belong.

I completely here the mods part but what about a section the thediapering forum for the diaper fairy, it just seems practical. it's just as simalar as the EC sub forum i think. i never think to look in the giving section..
I like seeign fairy post, but i do understand the forum clutter...

Diapering has been much slower all around. I use to visit 5-6 times a day or more. Now I come only 2-3 times. It seems like the posting has dropped a lot since the TP thing, even though it is resolved. It has become kind of boring now.

I sent a request in for a name weeks ago, and still haven't gotten an answer. I had to find out in another way.

Is there a way that maybe a sticky post could be put at the top of the diapering forum to direct people & remind them that there is a Diapering Fairy forum?

Did you send the request to me? If so what address? I answer as soon as I get requests. Shandelle & I have been doing most of it. Not sure where the other gals are.
