I'm hoping my comments aren't taken as any kind of personal attack against anyone here. That is not my goal.
I just wanted to say that I'm disappointed in the change of vibe on the Seattle Knotties board. I realize many think the board came alive with all that has happened but I kind of thought of it differently.
I realize I'm not a daily poster, but I used to read the board all the time. It felt like a place where I could be comfortablle and have people I could talk to that were dealing with the same things as I was, or a place where I could get great ideas, and for me that changed. Sadly I don't feel comfortable posting here anymore, and I don't enjoy reading the snarky/mean posts. I can't say for sure that's attributed to the change, but I've noticed some others have stopped posting as well, but that may just be the Holidays, and getting busy, who's to say.
I was really glad to see there were apologies and that it appears most have let go of the whole thing. But like I said, for me the board has kind of changed.
Again, I'm not trying to offend, just thought I would give a somewhat outside perspective on it. I hope things can change and the board will go back to it's original intent; to help local brides plan their weddings, and a great place to support each other.
Thank you to all of you that helped me with questions and gave me great ideas. It really was helpful. I wish you all happy planning!
