I know I can’t be the only one…what do you find on weddingbee that just bugs you???
For me, I can’t stand when bees ask for advice and then argue with everyone who tries to be helpful and supportive. If you didn’t want or don’t like people’s advice ignore it, don’t tell them they’re wrong especially when it counters your original post.

I just wish there was a button to delete your own posts… like when you try to upload something and it doesn’t work so if you try again it is a double post! Just drives me crazy that i can’t delete the one that didn’t work!

I wish on the classifieds you could search for the most recent posts instead of when someone commented last.
I hate when i see something that I’d love then I click on it and see the seller posted 7 months ago… ugh!

I hate seeing posts with no replies. I think it’s a me thing though, I hate for people to feel ignored.
And I agree on the advice thing. I just wrote some advice and I don’t think she’s going to like it.
And when the professional bees go on the defensive/crazy over a post. I understand you are in the wedding industry and have seen a lot, but please don’t tell someone they would be a bad client and you wouldn’t work with them either especially since you personally weren’t involved in the situation and don’t know the whole story. I’ve seen this a few times…

If you have suggestions for improving the site, you can submit them on the Ideas board.

@Miss CuppyCake: I agree! I also wouldn’t mind it here on the regular boards, too. I don’t really mind seeing endless “which dress should i choose” posts, but if it’s 8 months old, I think they already made their choice.

I haven’t been on the bee very long, so I hope it isn’t a gaff to say this, but I really dislike it when vendors either post to advertise their services and/or when professionals post things like, “What all brides should know about hiring a photographer” or “What you should ask your cake baker.”
I don’t really know WHY it should bother me so much because who cares if I ignore them (which I do) and I suppose they’re just trying to be helpful, but I really like posting here as a fellow bride/lady/guest/former BM whatever to give myself a break from being the client.

I find it irritating when people who respond make assumptions or try to read through the lines of the original post. It just makes the whole thread become a big distraction from what the OP is actually asking.

@divergirl: try not to be offended if someone doesnt like your advice… i dont think people do it purposely were clearly all different and sometimes just want a place to vent not necessarily advice… i definitely can fall into this category… i dont mean to offend someone..
i personally cant stand the personal attacks… if you dont like what i have to say move on…or find a polite way to say it… are we not all adults? plus we dont know anything but the limited information we post… no real reason to get fired up unless someone specifically call you out

I hate the “wet blanket society”. The people that come through almost any type of post and say “Now ladies, little old women in the jungles of South America that have never touched a computer in their lives may stumble on this and find it offensive.” You know what? I strive to avoid being rude, but maybe youre being overly sensitive? I’m a grown woman and you are not my mom, dont try and be her. The whole thing seems very elementary school “teacher, she’s picking on me”. It’s annoying. If the only thing you have to contribute is to tell the people posting that they’re being offensive (which 9 times out of 10, there is nothing offensive about it), DONT READ THE THREAD or pull up your big girl panties and get over it. You are not the political correctness police.
That, and people that ask for advice and then get all huffy and offended when people give advice. If you can’t take it, dont ask for it.

I’m not a huge poster, but I definitely read a TON of posts. The thing that is absolutely the most frustrating is when people are outright mean, and when someone says something back they become the big jerk all of a sudden. Blergh.
I read a post a couple months ago where a woman was clearly talking about another poster in such a rude and uncalled for way, was called out for it, and apologized in an offhand, condescending way. Then someone posted something afterwards about how rude her original statement was and a few bees ripped her a new one for it!! “She already apologized! Just drop it!” etc. It generally seems that the bees who have a high post count are the “cool kids in school” and can do no wrong.
Don’t get me wrong, most bees are gracious and kind. I really do think that for the most part, WB is a nice environment with nice people.
But, there are a few who are on the boards more often bickering than planning their weddings, discussing relationships, offering advice. So annoying.

I couldn’t agree with you more!
Seriously some people are just too sensitive or delicate or dramatic!
