@Carmie 

 

I'm so very sorry to hear all that.  And you were doing so much to help everyone here navigate to over there.  I'm sorry that it turned out to be a bad experience for you after all your hard work.


I don't like the sound of all that, but I thank you for posting about it.  I am posting there, and it is a somewhat different vibe than here.  While I haven't noticed any overt problems as yet, I can already see the potential.  It's something I'm watching.

 

I always appreciate your viewpoints and helpful information on many topics.  I hope we can continue to post here for a while at least.❤️

Re: I AM "IFFY" ABOUT FORUMS

@geezerette   to be honest, most of the mods there are wonderful.  IMO, there is only one bad egg and she is passive aggressive.

 

I am not losing any sleep over it.. I feel so much better away from it all.

@Carmie

 

*coming out of lurk mode*

 

I ventured over to the other forum when it was first started, and was quite surprised by the hurtful comments posted about Wisteria Lane and its host.

 

Here are a few examples, but there were many more.

 

One person said, "Too much repetitive clutter, cutsey graphics, and editorializing by the moderator"

 

Another person said, "the Delphi Wisteria Lane forums are busy and difficult to navigate"

 

And another person said, "it gave me anxiety with all the clutter"

 

After reading all of the not so nice things posted, I felt bad for Wisteria Lane's host. 

 

I didn't see any editorializing. What I did see was the host trying to give helpful hints and tips to make things easier for the new visitors. I don't find there to be any repetitive clutter, and there is a setting to turn off signature graphics, so only the text in each post is visible. I even read the host was open to suggestions and had no problem making changes to make people feel more comfortable. 

 

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but what I read definitely rubbed me the wrong way.  Granted, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I've been participating at Wisteria Lane for well over 15 years, and I find the people there to be courteous, helpful, and overall, very nice.  

 

If these QVC forums were to close, I would definitely miss your posts @Carmie.  I would also miss the posts from @Sammycat1 and everyone on the Pet Lovers threads.  Would you both consider posting at Wisteria Lane?  Although I don't post much, I am an avid reader, and I think it would be a great way to keep in touch.

 

I sincerely hope those who are not comfortable at the "other" forum know that Wisteria Lane is a nice place, and everyone is welcome.

 

*going back to lurk mode now*

Re: I AM "IFFY" ABOUT FORUMS

@sunshine45   thank you.  I am over it, none worse for the wear.

 

I guess because I am not a person to stay quite when some thing is not right....I am not considered to be a team player.  I am used to it and don't intend to change.

Re: I AM "IFFY" ABOUT FORUMS

I joined Pro Boards the day they opened q forum friends.  I find it very user friendly and have not had much trouble figuring out things on my own.  There's always someone to help if you have a question.  There's also a "help" forum in the "General" category for members helping members.

 

We have a great group there.  They have told us that this forum will close in the New Year so it won't come as a surprise when they shut down.

Re: I AM "IFFY" ABOUT FORUMS

@undertheradar 

 

I checked out both forum options before I registered with any.  I just found Wisteria Lane to be more confusing for me compared to the other forum.

 

I don't think that's hurtful to say.  I'm sure the posters there are fine and helpful just as you say.  Other people from here chose to join that one, I chose another option based on my preference.

 

I'm to the point that I wish everyone would recognize we each have choices and we should respect those choices, even if they're different from our own.  There are always going to be differences of opinions, but there isn't a wrong or right in this particular debate and there's certainly no reason to get nasty.
