@Zhabeego:  I agree. I enjoy the threads but I would rather have to click something to get to them, it just seems cluttered. I’m surprised at some of the sassy responses for an opinion that seems pretty objective.

@peachacid:  that’s an interesting idea! I know I would love to filter out the ring threads but still see everything else (including babies). I know they are working on revamping the boards. That would be a nice option to include.

A lot of those of us thatr are posting in the nesting boards have been here a lot longer than you have, and were here for our weddings. This irks me. There’s plenty of shit you probably post and like that we don’t want to read either. If you dont want to read it don’t.

@Zhabeego:  I completely understand where you are coming from.  I am interested in everything on weddingbee EXCEPT 99.4% of the TTC/ Baby stuff.  As an engaged chicky in her 30’s, I’m already completely drowning in everyone else’s baby talk.  It gives me anxiety. And lately, the bee has been more about babies than about weddings, IMO.  I wish I could filter it out.  One step at a time, and I don’t need to see 10 posts about squinters on pee sticks and invisible lines and how sad someone is about miscarriages. I think I’ll be completely enveloped in these threads when I’m ready to TTC, but for now it just makes me super anxious and convinced things will go wrong.

That all said, I hope if I establish any connections here, I am still considered welcome after my wedding.  I wouldn’t mind a better division of life stages then, either (I will probably no longer want to read about timelines and ceremony music quite as much as I do now LOL)

I find this thread really ironic considering about 5 out of the 10 posts you have started are not about weddings at all.

Personally, I do not care for babies at all and have no interest in hearing about TTC, nursing, labor, etc. Still I enjoy wedding bee – I simply ignore baby-related posts.

Well, I was engaged and married within a year. So far that is 1/36th of my life. I have other interests now that the wedding is over. But better filtering options would be nice.

@Bostongrl25:  She said she was interested in other subjects, that are non-wedding related, but not those regarding trying to conceive.

If you don’t like it then don’t read it. I personally think its great that women (and men!) can stay here after wedding planning is over!

@Bostongrl25:  +1

I didn’t want to be on the one point that out lol…but it’s true.

ETA:  And I think we all get what the OP and PP is saying, It’s just that a better place for this would be to go to ‘Ideas’ and submit an idea.  A really neat thing about posting things under this is that other bee’s can go there and support suggestions by giving ‘star ratings’ and it bumps the ideas up so that the admins can work on it.

@peachacid:  I know. But I dont really understand the point of her post. I dont read the fitness or religion boads, but I wouldnt start a thread suggesting they dont appear on the most recent threads page. Like others have said, if you arent interested in a topic then just skip it.

@veryberry13:  She has said repeatedly that she enjoys OTHER posts as well, just not those related to baby-making.  This is a fine place to talk about it since the ideas section isn’t exactly full of people commenting and changing anything…

@Bostongrl25:  Do you agree, though, that it would be helpful to have a way to filter out the threads you’re not interested in?  I would appreciate that feature.  Instead of attacking the OP and dismissing her thread, we can instead draw something positive from it…an idea to change the boards for the better.

@veryberry13:  Actually this idea has already been submitted.  It just didn’t have many votes.
