I went from the wedding sections straight to the BB sections 2 years ago and only recently started reading Misc. I NEVER start posts in Misc, although I have been tempted to from time to time. I did once and someone was like "this has been done before!" Oops! My bad.
I reply sometimes though.
So I think to be considered "known" in the WB section you have to have posted in the hundreds of posts. I just haven't. I'm known in my Dec mommies thread but that's probably about it.
I like it this way, unless I really need help and no one replies to my thread
. IRL, I'm quite outgoing and am always the one to arrange nights out and am part of a great gang of friends. Since having a baby I've made loads of new mum friends, so when I come to WB, I don't mind kind of sitting back and watching. It's relaxing.
However, lately, I've been finding it hard not to pipe up now and then (this thread for example).
BTW - I was also hesitant to name names Drea. That always starts trouble. Some people are well known for negative reasons so may not be "cool" but get reactions on their threads.
