    I’m confused.  Are YOU a vendor?  Are you fishing for potential customers?

    it is a vendor but i don’t think they are fishing… simply just asking for input. They maybe looking to see what area brides are stuck on or what the first things to book are.

    The reason it comes across as fishing is because their chosen name is so obviously a vendor. 9 times out of 10 on here when someone names themselves in such a way they spam the boards or fish for clients, which is why it was suspicious.

    I agree that it’s suspicious since the vendor talks about helping posters but what help have they actually provided? The rules say that they are not allowed to promote their business but they haven’t offered any helpful advice. Each of the local boards has lists of who is being used in that area so a thread like this doesn’t come across as practical. If they were looking to help out with which vendors to book first/next, then they wouldn’t ask who specifically folks are using in each category.
