I totally get what you’re saying and I’ve thought the same thing many times! I love the bee but as someone who cannot have children, I find all of the TTC  and pregnancy and baby topics kind of overwhelming. I do my best to stay away from those boards but there are so many it can be difficult. I will probably move away from wedding bee because of it.

OP I think you are getting way too riled up on this topic.

I think you have some suggestions for the layout of the Bee, and there is a definite place for that (I’d show you where it is, but I’m worried you’ll think I’m being snarky…).

@Zhabeego:  Maybe you already knew the suggestion she made, but I don’t see why you think she didn’t make it to be helpful?  It would even be a stretch to call the problem solved part of that post sarcastic.

Why don’t you just click on the heading “wedding related” so that you will only see wedding related posts and won’t have anything to complain about? I don’t see why this is even an issue. I think there are so many posts on TTC b/c many bees go through their engagements & weddings on this site and create relationships or just feel comfortable in a community that they know. When they start TTC they have a safe, friendly place to go to just like everyone else.

I get where the OP is coming from.  I enjoy the wedding posts, I enjoy the Not Wedding Related posts, but I don’t have any interest in the baby boards.  It would be awesome if I could see everything except them (because honestly, they are about 1/2 of the posts)

@Zhabeego:  I agree. And it’s not that I want less parenthood discussion – not at all! I think it’s great. But many bees have nothing to contribute to parenthood discussions because they’re just not at that stage (maybe never will be).

Problem is, the only way to see everything but the parenthood posts is to check 8 sections (Wedding, Not Wedding Related, Months, Local, home, married, pets, cooking). That’s a little much, don’t you think? Whereas it’s really easy for bees primarily interested in parenthood topics to avoid wedding stuff by checking just 2 sections, Nesting and Not Wedding Related.

That sucks, so it makes more sense just to look at All Posts. However, the volume of parenthood posts is overwhelming – sometimes like half the posts in All Posts are parenthood related. That is a lot to skip over, so All Posts simply doesn’t work well if you can’t contribute to parenthood discussions.

I’m sure there’s a better way to categorize things so that bees can find more posts they can actually contribute to – whether that be wedding, parenthood, or both.

Well I’m happy that we have threads for after the wedding…

I found Weddingbee when I was engaged and joined under another name. After the wedding I stayed to help out other bees that were dealing with issues that I had conquered and share the wisdom of my experience.

Then life continued and I started TTC and I came back under this name when I got pregnant. I just love this place, and the women on here are awesome.

I went on other websites only to find that they were not as user friendly, I didn’t like how they looked or it wasn’t as easy to find the topic of interest.

Also, I still like to look at some ring and dress porn and help out on issues that are about weddings or relationships in general.

So… Yeah, I think there is a lot more than just weddings here, but if this is the only topic that interests you, just select Wedding Related to avoid the other topics. I know I’m not the only participant here that has been around for a few years. I’ve been around since 2009…

@Zhabeego:  If you look at the bottom of every post title, you can see what category it belongs to and then either click on it or not as you choose. We’re not all interested in reading the waiting posts and we skip those, we don’t all need to read the LGBT posts and we skip those, we don’t all need to read the 20-something posts and we skip those, just skip the ones you’re not interested in.

@adoc86:  I just don’t click the threads I don’t have interest in.

+1,000.
 
While I think it’d be great to have a more stringent filtering option…I don’t really understand how seeing things you’re not interested in can be that annoying? It’s only a list…just scroll until you find a topic you want to read. It’s not weeding…it’s reading 🙂
