October 2013 Weddings

Can I delete a post?

I posted on another board and things got a bit too snarky for me rather quickly, and I'd like to delete the entire thread. Is there a way I can do that? 

Thanks!

    <div>I doubt she was stalking, it's not like the boards are "different places" or anything, they're all part of TK. I regularly look at 6 or 7 boards, but only post on 3 or 4. </div><div>

    Dollar Dances seem to bring out alot of Drama here on TK. If you check out the reception board. There is a post that got nasty really fast too. Do not take it personally,
    people here have strong opinions. But that is why we post to get their advice.
    So sorry you had to deal with it....<img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-kiss.gif" border="0" alt="Kiss" title="Kiss" />
  • She went on my other post and told the other posters that I posted this thread after coming here to make an unnecessary "comment." There is a difference between being "snarky" and being downright rude and nasty.

    FYI, posting a complaint about treatment you receive on one of the boards by making a new thread on a completely different board is considered very rude on The Knot. It's like talking behind someone's back.

    Don't assume someone is stalking you. Really, none of us care that much. You're overly sensitive and need to grow a thicker skin. Own up to the fact that the subject you posted about was a hot button, apologize, and do whatever you want when your wedding day rolls around. You cannot control how people react to what you post on here, you can only control your reaction to the feedback you receive.

    Don't come onto this board or any other board and whine about being treated poorly or complain about another member. It will never, ever go over well.

    To answer your question, you cannot delete an entire thread.  You shouldn't try to delete anything, because it kind of irks people, and they get really snarky about it.

    Dollar dances came up in our unpop ops thread today, and I wish you had asked us why it was unpopular, because we would have told you at that time.  The reason that it has only been brought up in that thread is because people HATE them. 

    Keep in mind that these ladies have been around for a long time and give honest advice.  You have to be ready to take whatever answer is given when you post a thread.  I get the feeling that sometimes, they get tired of answering the same questions about honeymoon registries and cash bars.  If you lurk around the boards a bit more, you will see these opinions without being the target of them.  I hope that helps!

    BTW - don't be scared off by the response.  I think it happened to all of us at one time.

  • Sigh...this happens.  Like Rochelle said, this happens to most and sometimes more than once.  Don't hide, don't run. We like you - stick around.

    1.) Dollar dances are tacky because they pressure your guests into handing you cash.  By doing the dance, you are asking your guests to open up and hand you whatever currency they have on them.  They do have a choice to participate, you are right, but often times they feel guilty if they don't.  It's just bad taste to put a guest in that position.  

    2.) Don't head to the "snarky bride" board unless you want the snark.  

    3.) When you know your topic is taboo/tacky expect to get some heat.   Either own it and move along, or observe when someone else falls into the mess you did. 

    4.) Deleting anything is called a "dirty delete" and no one is a fan.  The rule goes "if you typed it, you said it, now own it".  


     
    S'mores. Just S'mores please.
  • OP, I highly suggest you lurk a little more. Not just on the October board, but anywhere you plan to post. You aren't always going to get a response you want. I follow several boards, if I see something a reg posts on one board then complains about it in another board, I will direct my friends that way. Please lurk more.

     

  • Everybody said exactly what I was thinking. You came over to a different board, got upset bc we didn't agree with your idea, and then came to this board and complained about how "snarky" we are. It's rude. I wasnt stalking you. I had a feeling you would post something, so i checked and I was right. I posted here to remind you that we can still see posts on other boards, so it's not smart to complain about people on other boards. Sorry about any grammar mistakes. I am on mobile.
