Re: Remember when the forums were fun?

I read the forums for information basically, not to bash anyone.  I also read the forums because there are nice people here.  I really don't iintend to upset anyone.  Most lately I have found lots of restraint on what can be said.  It would seem if a poster makes a suggestion about the way something is presented or about the way the host or vendor presents themselves QVC should be interested.  It could affect sales or product choices to be aired.  I certainly would appreciate  being schooled in a better way to do things if the outcome is a better one.

@RespectLife  I like that.That's certainly a long time. When Posters were exchanging information I always wondered if they would get along. That's great.

Don't you wonder why we aren't allowed to give out our real names etc.

Re: Remember when the forums were fun?

These boards still are enjoyable. There were complaints about hosts back then too, and some posters were vicious.  I'm happy to participate in some nice threads with kind and helpful individuals.

Re: Remember when the forums were fun?

i have met and still stay in touch with a dear lady who isnt on the boards anymore. she used to post here a lot, but over maybe a dozen years ago. so sweet and i consider her a dear friend. do "marbles" ring a bell? 

 

with all of the "nostalgia talk," i am guessing that no one remembers some of the people who pretty easily scammed others on these boards? i think having the mods around have made these boards just a bit safer.

 

i am in year 19 of being on these forums and i STILL enjoy my time here. if i didnt, i would not be around. while i am missing some people that used to be around, for those that  i currently interact with, i THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Smiley HappyHeart

[ Edited ]

@AuntG I don't remember the vituperative of the posts back then. There might have some complaints about products,but  few,if any directed, at hosts. And I have been doing these forums since 2010.

And there was no one left to speak out for me....
