@nattiejeanne:  Create a provocative title and post it during busy times when there are a lot of bees on the board.  Otherwise, most posts tend to fall off page 1 never to return.  Finally, don’t feel bad about bumping a post during a busier time when you are more likely to receive responses.

@nattiejeanne:  I tend to stick to what I know – and I honestly know nothing about re-sizing rings or (pretty much) anything wedding related. I do know when someone is being a jerk though and I don’t mind helpfully pointing out when that is the case. Maybe the right people just aren’t seeing your posts for some reason or maybe people don’t keep answering because they see that you have already gotten the same answer that they would give.

@nattiejeanne:  I agree I have posted looking for some serious advide and have gotten little to nothing. But I am alway greatful to the bees who do lend advice when I need it. PS I hope you worked out your ring size problem I have also been freaking out about mine being sized properly also.

@nattiejeanne:  Hey

i’m sorry this place has not been as helpful , and I kind of have to agree with you … It seems as though those “drama” related post get all the attention and the bees that really need advice and help on “the wedding bee” dont seem to get it …

you can try to “bumb” your post to get more attention , but honestly I do notice a few ppl that are “regulars” to the bee are the ones that get the most reply’s and attention …

I really dont know what to say about that expect for what can be done on your part to get more comments… the fact that this IS a public forum and some ppl post and join for different reasons , and will comment when they want and on what they want.

@LoggerHead91207:  +1, I offer advice where I can, but I don’t know anything about cut, color, clarity, moissys, etc.

Plus, I usually feel I have to reply to the drama posts because normally the person is way overreacting…. or needs to get therapy.

I agree with some PP’s. A catchy title helps draw readers in. If you don’t get the number of responses you want, go back to the thread and type “bump”, and that will put it at the top of the list (just don’t abuse it).

You really can’t blame people though for not responding to you. Sometimes when I see a thread where a bee is looking for advice,  if the previous posters have already given the advice I’d give, I don’t bother posting a response.
