Not Engaged Yet

Which other boards do you visit?

Not *necessarily* a place to snark on other boards, I was just wondering in general, which other boards do you visit.

(Footnote: Though I'm not gonna lie, this was inspired by this board being called "mean" when we were harping on someone who had violated the Terms of Use...).  I would say, some other boards who will snark on you for (let's say) not wearing a white dress, are "mean."

ANYway.  I post on my local board b/c I'll have answers to particular questions from ppl about the city.....there are a lot of tourists who ask for general recommendations about the city, etc.  I also used to do this on Yahoo Answers, but then kinda dropped off.  (Talk about BSC, Yahoo Answers....),

I also like Snarky Brides, but their board moves much faster so it's harder to "keep up" with posts!

And then the Kn$t made me pick a month board Undecided but I don't particularly check it.  I'm not sure why you HAVE TO pick a month to join, but ok whatever.  How would you *know* what month if you're NEY?

So - where else do y'all hang out?

    My month and local I post in. Sometimes in SB, etiquette and second marriages.
    I'm not good at feelings.

    I hang out here and Just Engaged the most.  Sometimes I'll stop by Students, ChitChat, or my month board.

    I lurk around a lot of places. I basically post pretty regularly on here, and I post fairly often on WP, M&M, Pre-Wedding Parties, Students, Christian... hmm. Sometimes JE&P and Beauty. Very occasionally I'll post on E, Registering, Reception, or Chit Chat etc. I'm all over.

    NEY is my fave. E is my fave to lurk on.

    EDIT: I also lurk on SB. Occasionally post. Forgot about that one. SB and E just move too fast for me to keep up.

  • edited December 2011
    I check JE because I like to see people post their rings on the sticky. Sometimes I comment on the posts if I see one that stands out.

    I lurk on a few other boards when this one is particularly slow: moms and maids, SB, registries...

    I also lurk on the nest's family matters because I LOVE MOTHER IN LAW STORIES :)

    I lurk on multiple boards, but the only other board I post on is the Jewish Weddings board, to learn. I'm Jewish but I've never been to a Jewish wedding before. I'm the first cousin/niece/granddaughter on both sides of the family to get married so I need to brush up on my Jewyness.

    I post here and SB.
    I lurk and randomly post on E.

    I like the funny kid stories on WW, but I feel extra creepy reading them and not posting.

    I'm usually just here, or around E or SB. I keep an eye on my local, but it's really dead. My month board is mostly full of people who are a lot further along in planning, so while they're nice, I don't have much to add.

    Bside - I was a BM in a Jewish wedding this year. I'm happy to discuss it with you.
  • edited December 2011
    I lurk on Honeymoon (want to see where everyone is going), Food and Cakes (because I love food and cake) and my local. I used to post regularly to E and SB but got tired of them.

    I mostly post here and consider this my 'home' board.  I also lurk/randomly post on many of the other boards, but most often is E & SB.

    I tend to jump into several of the other boards, and feel like if I can answer a question over there then I do. I typically don't start a new discussion (unless I have a specific question that I'm dying to get answered).

    I tend to hop over to Just Engaged, Wedding Party (they tend to have good discussions), I posted for the first time on Attire because I was DYING to know where a dress was from, Etiquette is okay, and Pre Wedding Parties. Other than that I post on my local board.

    I hopped over to the Nest today because some of their boards seemed interesting. I didn't realize I had to have a seperate Nest account though... so I left. It was my same user name but I thought I'd just be able to post!

    So far, I like you all the best.  You're stuck with me.  You'll have to deal with it. :)

    I'm sure as things progress, other boards will become interesting, but I like the number of reasonable, educated people in this forum. 

    I found a part of the nest where everyone was fighting, insulting each other (not in a snarky way) and calling each other names.  Who knew a message board for home stuff and being a newlywed (at least, I thought that was the point) could be so chaotic!

    I occasionally drop in on just about all the boards to lurk for a bit, but I very rarely post anywhere other than here or JE/P.  I've posted once or twice on SB, but, like others have metioned, it's really hard to keep up over there.

    Maaaaan you're gonna be like an expert when you get hitched! All of my relatives have been married since before I was born or when I was so little I wasn't invited to the wedding. I grew up in a predominantly Catholic town and my only Jewish friend I didn't meet until I was halfway through college. So when it comes to Jewish weddings, I wouldn't even know where to begin!

    I spend most of my posts on this one.  I don't feel too right about posting on other boards because I am NEY, but I love the stories.  I read Moms and Maids, Engagements and proposals, Snarky, Students, Christian, etiquette sometimes.  Basically anywhere if I am bored.... :)

    You can ask me if you have any questions. I sort of know the basics. There's also a lot of informational sites online. Is your FI Jewish too?

    I call this board home (even though I wouldn't say I'm cool enough to be a reg yet) and I lurk and occasionally post on Etiquette.
  • edited December 2011
    This is definitely my "home" and I rarely (if ever) venture to other places. TK bugs me but i do hit my local sometimes. I lurk TN because the amount of insanity over there is too hard to keep up with and the women are BEYOND ridiculous sometimes.

    I don't know - I got here and somehow I stuck, lol. :)

    I hate my local board.  A lot.

    I hang out on Military Brides, but it's pretty dull in there generally.  Except for the biweekly fight about whether it's okay to JOP in secret before a deployment so they can pocket the extra "separation pay" to pay for their pretty princess wedding.  Which makes me want to bang my head against the wall.  There's two types of military brides - those who are educated, mature, and independent and those who aren't.  The ones who aren't are usually 18 years old.  I fear that I'll hate 80% of other military spouses when BF goes active duty if that board is any example.  But I've made some really good friends over there, too, so there's hope!

    I also scan Moms & Maids, Etiquette, and Snarky Brides, but rarely post.

    I hope you don't hate the other military spouses. My mom made some really great friends whom were military spouses. So I hope and believe there is hope for you. :)  I mean I have met great friends too, but they weren't spouses at that time.

    I felt that way too when I was NEY, but sometimes the topics were interesting and I threw in my $.02 anyways.  I ended up getting over it pretty quick though because as long as you don't refer to your BF as FI, most people don't mind that you are posting and NEY (un-engaged people can have helpful wedding experience too)

    Thanks, GPB! =)

    He's not really Jewish. His dad is Jewish and his mom is Catholic - her family wasn't too happy about her marrying a Jew (this was almost 30 years ago) so they didn't have a religious ceremony. But he was raised celebrating the major holidays of both religions. He's converting, though. He starts classes in January.

    I call this my "home" but I do lurk on other boards occassionally.

    I don't even look at my "local" board because TK's choices for Canada are - Canada, Canada-Alberta, Canada-Toronto and Canada-Vancouver. Which is pretty friggin ridiculous IMO. They don't even have Montreal on there! They've got the entire country, then a province and then 2 cities. It makes no sense at all to me.

    I'm so random...I lurk on SB (sometimes post), E, vintage weddings, JE, proposals, Maids and Moms, and a few others.

    I post here, on SB sometimes, Sept 2011 and the Canada board.  Occasionally I'll post elsewhere if I see something that I can answer.

    But NEY is my fave. <3

    I lurk around Moms & Maids, Wedding Party, Etiquette, JE and SB. I used to be on Student Brides but then it got to be a lot of 17-18 year olds wanting validation on their engagements for a while, and turned me off.
