starting to really....

not lke reading my month board. They really are starting to just post stupid effing crap and I just like want to do the slow clap at them all. I cant imagine what other stupid stuff they are going to post in the next couple of months.

Did all month boards get like this in the few months before the wedding?

Like making posts like CHECK.. I ordered my tuxes! and have no pic or no link or anything. I hate posts like that. I like details and stories. Am I a biatch for thinking like that?

    I do check it, I am the mod there too, but I just don't feel like reading it. I get excited by the post sometimes and then I open it and it is like one sentence, and no pic. :(  I don't have to worry about vendors on that board so I dont open every post anymore. haha.

    This happened on my month board (which, to be fair, was insanely large and active).  The mods had to make a new rule that checks should include indicators of what the check was in the subject and had to include PIPs where possible.  The had tried to do a post once or twice a week where everyone could AW their checks, but I don't think that took off.

    Oh and they do the omg 4 months, etc, posts.... um we are all in the same month, calm down.  So I might have to make a guideline. I really can't stand going on there sometimes.

    Yeah... mines too far out, so it's just the really excited posts like, 'omg!!!11!!! Its official!!!1111!!!1!' and the 'when do I start planning?' type posts.Oh, and then the 'it's my wedding, who cares if it's the day after christmas?' type posts... I'm guilty of the 'checks' posts... but normally I'll include a picture, or add it to my bio. We don't have a mod on our board yet. How does one go about becoming a mod?

    I just feel like a huge outsider on the month board.  I mean, I just started chatting here, and I don't feel like all you lovely Philly ladies are like "wtf is this RecoveringActor chick doing here?" but I feel that way on my month board.  They're doing a SS... and one girl posted something about how mad she was that she didn't recognize the name of her swap person.

    It's intimidating jumping into a board where people already have these relationships already formed.  It just feels very elitist sometimes.

    What is SS?  And that is weird you don't feel at home in your month board.. I Was on my month board forever now and there was a few of us at first. I loved it though. and I still love my month board but they are just a little ridic right now.

    So I did post and some of the girls agree with what i said about the little checks. I am suggesting they put it in the morning post, like some of the girls do on here now. I like it that way, small checks go in the morning post, easy peasy, some of them did not like it. But whatever, it is just easier. And every day more and more girls are popping on the board, so it is going to get really chaotic really fast.

    I don't like my monthly board either.  One day I looked and we had about 8-10 stickies on the top.  Then all the sudden the mod said she was leaving TK.  That and no matter what everyone just agrees with each other.  I don't check it often anymore.

    Recovering - I'm that month too! The Secret Santa was too ridiculous for me. The girls there are really intimidating though. And, since we have such a popular month, there are just SO many people.

    Apparently. I didn't pay a whole lot of attention. You had to sign up and whatnot - so yea, I think there are actual presents involved.

    I'm late but I wouldn't give out my address. 
    My month board started to stress me out so I stopped posting.  I lurk once in a while but that's about it.  All of the "checks" made me feel behind and lazy.  Some of the girls were doing things that I hadn't even considered and it made me feel like I should have been doing more than I was.  Looking back, I was fine, just had a life besides my wedding.  No offense to any November Knotties, I'm just different.

    Bean--it's nice to know I'm not alone in feeling intimidated by that board!!! 

    I've done internet exchanges before... but it's on this website ravelry.  It's a knitting and crocheting social networking site. And our swaps are knitting related.  But I talked to these people for a LONG TIME before giving info out.

    We did a Secret Santa exchange last year on our month board via Elfster and we're doing it again this year even thought we're now on The Nest.  The website does the pairing up, and only the person who gets you sees your home address so they can mail you a gift.  It was successful last year, and I cannot wait to see what I get this year!
