I know that people are on the other forum. I've been over there today too (a lot :p) , but somebody has to still be around.

I'm still around. I have browsed the other site but haven't signed up yet. Not sure if I am going to. I have been with WB for a while and willing to give it the benefit of the doubt to a point but there are some things already popping up regarding the new forum that I'm not too keen on either.

I might just forget them all for a while.

I go through phases. I can be on for hours..days at a time and then not visit a forum for weeks. It's kinda hit and miss with me.

You know what else I can't figure out that annoys the heck out of me. When I sign into my email at home and come back to WB I ahve to sign back in. IT's like by checking my email it's kicking me out. Grrr

Multiple tabs doesn't matter. But I haven't tried any other browsers. I might try that sometime. I am leaving tomorrow for 4 days without the computer so it's not a big deal right now.

I will have the kid for the last 4 hours on Monday. We are picking him up at my parents as we complete our circle through. Unfortunately my DH is being sent out of state for work on Monday so I am dropping him off at the airport by my parents and picking lil man up. Blah.

Ruth, people love you, trust me. You've had the courage to try to remain neutral, I honestly believe you would be welcomed with open arms...especially with no constraints of being a 'mod'.

I don't know. I'm still struggling with the idea that people only see me as LadyA mod and not as anything but. I have rarely felt welcome in any offshoot (save my own - but that was before I became a mod). Plus, it seems like a very popular(?) poster and I don't seem to get along and I'd much rather avoid dealing with her since it seems absolutely pointless.

Well I am heading home in a few minutes. My parents should be there soon. They are staying the night and heading back home tomorrow with lil one in tow. Gotta love grandparents who will drive 4 hours each way to get their grandchild.

I think that is really unfair that mods and post mods feel like they are wearing a scarlett letter of "M". frown

I love you gals. I know your job is stupidly insane for something you do for free. I would welcome you with open arms but now I am more than cemented to this board.

I am shocked that you would think that. I don't know anyone on WB that doesn't like you or respect you. I would be hard pressed to even find a post where there were a truly harsh word uttered by you. I think you should come over...I think the new site would go crazy when you sign up.

LadyA - I'm sorry you feel that way. Honestly seeing you on the other site makes it feel more like WB home than this one does. It is very much like the old WB before the split - but better. [/quote]

All of this. I was actually thinking of you two today and wondering if we'd see you over there. It might be nice to participate somewhere w/o your mod hat on? (Not saying you couldn't be a mod, I'm just saying.)

I won't ever give up WB... but it'd be neat to explore a new dynamic at a place where everyone has a 'fresh start'

Is it weird that I've never really thought of you guys in the mod context? I think you should both make your way over, and FF who else will I count down my day with dippy-do head with.

Thanks ladies. I did actually sign up over there "on the sly". The whole thing just makes me sad. I mean... KnockedUp... it's a great place, by the looks of it, and I applaud you & your sis for setting it up... but WB has been my online "home" for a long while... it helped me through some insanity during planning... it introduced me to my MOH and countless other gals, some of whom have become great friends... it's where I turned when I got laid off... it's where I came for support during our very long road trying to become parents... it's where I've come for the good things, and the bad things... I've shared me here and supported friends and strangers through bad patches (and been supported, too)... I'm not ready to let it go without one hell of a fight wink And honestly, delete requests make me sad... to see so much awesome info and support vanish where it can't help anyone any more. I've been sad a lot since the WB/CanFam split frown I mean... I understand the impetus, I respect the decision, and I'll handle the requests that come to me... but it still makes me sad.

*sigh*

Also... no, it's not Friday yet *grumble* ... 15hours12 minutes of work 'til the weekend wink

Ruth I totally get your point, I do. At the same time, it wasn't WB that was home, it was the people that made it. That whole 'home is where the heart is' stuff? It's true. Buzzle is where the heart of WB/BB has gone, that's my opinion anyway.

Too much has changed and too many feelings hurt in the split...it just feels...different here. Can't explain it.

I'm certainly not deleting my profile here but I'm finding I spend less and less time here now. I hope you'll reconsider. It would be a shame to lose you in that 'family'.

I get what you're saying 'mena... but the vibe I get over there is totally different from what I loved over here. And honestly, having been through 3 or 4 distinct 'generations' of members on here... I don't even think it's exactly the people that made it. I don't disagree that it feels different here, though frown

I agree that it feels different here, but it feels different there too. I don't know where I'm more comfortable. I'm starting to feel that it is too busy there KWIM.
I can't decide, so I'm not going to yet.
