So I have a question about the last bit about usernames…what if someone already has their business name in their username? Do they have to quit weddingbee? I think its against the rules for them to create  a new profile.

@dynamic_duo: This is the most sober and sensible response I have seen to this whole Mitagosh

Well done love, I think that clarifies it nicely.

I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I’m in a sewing class right now but when I get home I’ll review it more closely, discuss with the other mods, and we’ll keep working on this collectively. I think a cooperative, constructive group effort is definitely the best path forward!

fantastic idea @purpleunicorn! I think you did a great job!

 

@bakerella: threadjack alert: sewing class sounds fun – I don’t suppose you cross-stitch at all?

@dynamic_duo: Thanks for this response. I really like it. However, there are some bees, I think Pizzti Studios who has been on here for years and has her name on there. She joined before that particular rule took effect I think. Anyhow, I really love your response and it does address a lot of the issues the photographers have. I was/still am really surprised at the fact that a lot of bees don’t really appreciate how much these photography bees help. I’ve had a bunch of them check out photographers, look at websites, strategize etc in order to make sure I get really really great wedding pictures so I would love to see them continue on the site. However, is it okay for them to mention that someone proceeds with caution when using a friendor and/or amateur based on the fact that they too have seen lots of pictures and devastating stories of how these pictures don’t turn out right? E.g., I remember USER counseling someone to use an amateur but that she should protect herself by getting a contract etc. Another one said if she could afford it, maybe instead of an amateur for 10 hours, one could get a pro for 4/5 hours. I don’t think that’s bad advice though. Or is it?? Anyhow, thanks for your help.

@bRooklynRocks: I think for the username, you could be grandfathered in. Say, if your account was started before 10/1/11 or some date in the past, you are allowed to keep it, but going forward, you cannot have your studio name obviously in your username.

@bRooklynRocks: I think that type of advice would be fine, because it’s not saying the only way to get good photos is to hire a pro, it’s helping someone decide between services. I think the spirit of the rule is to just eliminate pros saying that people’s wedding will suck without them.
