    I think you made a lot of effort and if someone hasn’t responded in the timeframe you gave them, then they don’t get special treatment. If you clean up the list and someone comes back saying they want back on, then they should go to the bottom. 

    If you sent a message then they got it. You get an email when you get a message here.

    I’m a waiting bee and as a waiting bee I come and go from the site for weeks at a time. So I can see a real possibility of people not seeing it in time. However, if I didn’t respond in time and got bumped- or had to resign up and got added to the end- I wouldn’t care. I say a cleaner list is worth whatever rearrangements you need to make. I also think that you have put a lot of work into this and that needs to be appreciated instead of criticised. If anyone gives you a hard time tell em to suck it! πŸ™‚

    i agree with miss tattoo. since they will get an email notification of a PM, then you have done your part to notify them and give them a chance to say yay or nay in regards to the list. if, after the new list goes live, they come back and want to be added back, then put them at the end like all the other new bees.

    Agreed with putting them at the bottom. Even if they didn’t visit weddingbee a PM gives an email which most people check every day.

    Yay for a cleaner list! πŸ™‚

    I am not a waiting bee, but I have seen the post you are referring to a kazillion time, so I think that if they don’t respond in the timeframe you give them, you should put them at the bottom of the list. That is only fair to the more active bees and the newbees πŸ™‚

    Seems a lot for putting them at the bottom.  Spring cleaning is a good idea to avoid having a bloated list but if someone responds, even belatedly, I don’t see why not give them their spot back.  I’d prefer an accurate representation of when people starting waiting to artificially moving folks up (not to mention 3 weeks, while generous, may not cover everyone…I think folks are more active when they first join and tail off a bit).  But maybe I am the only person who *doesn’t* actually want a low number, because then that’s proof I’ve been waiting too long…

    *not waiting anymore but* bump them to the bottom- you are going above and beyond cleaning up the list so if they don’t respond, they have to ask to be readded.

    I don’t really understand how the waiting list even works. Ive been positing here for over a year, and my name was on the middle of the list. Last time I saw, it wasn’t on at all. I must have missed some posts about this.

    @Bostongrl25: I’m sure it’s simply an accident that your name has somehow slipped through the cracks and is no longer on the list. I’m sure if you bring it to @purplebee:‘s attention, she’ll gladly put you back on.

    As for how it works, here goes: @tea: is at the top of the list, as she has been on it the longest, and is still (sorry tea:)) waiting for her SO to propose. And so on and so forth, on down the list. The last person on the list has been on it the least amount of time. As someone gets crossed off (gets engaged), then their name is taken off, a proposal blurb written for them in the weekly edition of the list, and then all the names above them get to move up a spot. Or two or three, depending on how many ppl get engaged in between each edition of the list.

    Hope that helps.

    (gasp, pant) Did I leave anything out? Smile
