shaka:  This all makes me so incredibly sad. When I was a waiting bee, I loved climbing up the list week by week. As an engaged bee, I loved returning to the list posts to read all of the happy engagement announcements. The Bee was special to me because of the waiting community and it is really disheartening for that to be diminished.

I’m hopeful that the new site will be smoothed out soon and that creating the list will not be as difficult as it is at the moment. If possible, I think that keeping it in its current form (one keeper and a weekly list) is the best option but I am interested to hear other’s suggestions.

Thank you for all that you have done for the list during your time as keeper, it is very much appreciated.

shaka:  Sorry to hear the sad news. I was not on the list, but ever since I saw your first list with a featured bee, I looked forward to opening the list. Thank you for bringing something refreshing to the boards.  I know it must have taken so much time.

I hope we can keep the list every week! Its what I look forward to every Monday as a waiting bee. Seeing yourself move up on the list and seeing that we are not alone in waiting! I’d hate to see it get pushed back to once a month and not know our current place so to speak. 🙁 the new site is very frustrating, but I hope it can be fixed soon! The waiting community is amazing and I’d hate to lose the support here!

shaka:  this new site is awful. I don’t think there’s a single person that likes it. I have loved Mondays, getting home from work, and seeing where I’m at, and who of my ‘list buddies’ have gotten engaged. This new format is a nightmare. I will miss you, Shaka!

shaka:  Thank you for all your work on the list it is always a high point in my week and it would be such a shame to see the it dissapear because of the site upgrade.  I spent quite a bit of time trying to find this weeks list as I was sure I’d seen it and commented but couldn’t find it anywhere.

I would like to see it continue in it’s current form (weekly) and hope that someone with more time and technological know how than me volunteers to take over.

shaka – Thank you for all of your hard work! Whatever happens with the waiting list I’m sure the waiting boards will still be friendly, helpful and a nice place to visit.

We’ll be sorry to see you go, Shaka. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve put in.

Unfortunately, I’m still genuinely confused, haha! Is it just the new format you don’t like? Aside from the obnoxious spam filter, of course. What else would prevent the Waiting List from being produced every week? (or did I totally misread that?)

shaka:  I’m sorry to hear you’ll be leaving as listkeeper, but it is not a surprise with this new site! You are a great list keeper and we so appreciate all of the time and energy you put in to make the list so fantastic! Even if you don’t remain listkeeper will you stick around? I’d hate to see you leave all together!

winstonchurchill:  I think it’s the fact that the boards seem to be infinitely harder to navigate and posts seem to be harder to find.

shaka:  You know what I think might actually work in terms of posts being hard to find? If people who are on the waiting list are responsible for posting a link or an update on the most recent waiting list after they get engaged. I feel like this might be a bit more effort/something to remember for the waiting bees, but it would allow the list to continue as-is without more effort piled onto the listkeeper.

It’s weird that I don’t seem to be able to edit my post 10 min after posting, but I just wanted to add that I don’t think it’s unfair that someone should post on the thread or PM the listkeeper to get on the list and also to get off of it.

shaka:  As the PPs have mentioned, I have really appreciated all your hard work and dedication to the Waiting List. I will miss you as well.

Right now, I do not have any suggestions to make it work better, as I am still learning to navigate the new WeddingBee. As you mentioned, I do not read the blogs as much as I am on the boards, so I hope there is a way to resolve the problems. I am sure we just have to get used to it, and iron out the kinks.
