@Shanta: I think the main posting etiquette here is make sure you don’t just start threads, but also contribute to them.

Don’t worry about talking about other sites, people here are pretty friendly.

Read through the threads and get a feel for board tone. Respond to threads and post when you need help, advice, need to vent, want to share, whatever!

Welcome and enjoy.

Every forum has different rules, but generally they don’t like you to post other websites. I’m actually not too sure of the rules here. I kind of just go by how other bees post and keep it PG-13 rated. I didn’t realize you could post TOO MUCH??? Don’t they want their members active?

@Shanta: the girls at the knot forums are just mean.  pay no attention to them.

Personally, I don’t like the forums at the Knot. They’re way too uptight over there, lol. πŸ™‚

I agree with KatNYC2011!

@Mrs. Meowerson: and @deathbydesign: I’ve never been to the boards on The Knot, but from all I hear about them, I’m glad I found WB first!

We’re nice around these parts. πŸ™‚ WELCOME!!! Post what you want. AS long as you’re not nasty to anyone you’ll get along just fine.

Well, I didn’t go to the Knot because they had a whole “Gay Weddings” site. Um, that’s a little 90s and not so PC anymore. I’m not having a “gay wedding”. I’m having a wedding with someone of the same gender; it’s just a wedding. This place seemed a lot more open and friendly. πŸ˜‰ So, welcome (since we don’t seem to have as many rules)!

Hmmm that’s a really good question. Well, here at WB we have an anti-snark and personal attack policy (there should be a link righ above the comment box), as well as a malicious threadjacking policy. So basically, the rules here are “play nice” πŸ˜‰ We try to encourage our members to think before hitting the “reply” button and use constructive criticism rather than being mean or negative. Think about how you would want someone to reply to you if you were the OP.

We don’t really have such a thing as Too Much Information here at times, trust me. I think we all just try to handle awkward issues with a sense of humour, sympathy, and helpful advice.

I think the biggest thing around WB is to have fun! We’re a really supportive community full of good advice. You’ll get out what you put into it πŸ™‚ Glad you’ve joined us!

Welcome to the WB!  I think you’ll find everyone here to be “real”.  Like Bakerella said, the only thing you need to be cautious of being snarky (i.e. snotty, ignorant, rude, etc).  Otherwise, we’re a pretty helpful and honest bunch of bees.  Buzzz…

@Shanta: about a year ago i went on the knot forums when i was a waiting bee and introduced myself and said i wasnt engaged yet (but had been with Mr. Meowerson for 7 years at the time so thought it was appropriate for me to be thinking about weddings) and a slew of women pounced upon me in pack form and ridiculed me for thinking about weddings without being engaged, introducing myself, and starting a thread.  there are a lot of cliques over there, and apparently they don’t look kindly to other people having original ideas.  the internet is a strange place to try and be “exclusive”.

Welcome!!! WB loves hot messes – at least they seem to like this hot mess πŸ˜› (as long as Im not snarky:0)  If you think your post might be a little Too Much Information post it anyway but you can actually put ‘TMI’ in the title if you want to warn some folks.  Personally, those are some of my favorite posts and I also just love honesty and I find that here.

Post away!
