Wow! So i’ve seen quite a few ladies on here saying how snarky it is on The Knot and i just thought i’d hop over and have a look.
I see your point! Their sticky for newbies is even harsh in itself.

That sticky isn’t just for newbies. It’s for the Not Engaged Yet crowd. NEY

I know its for NEY but its mainly telling new members to be careful what they post because of the response they’ll get. WB just seems a much friendlier place

I like how they also say you shouldn’t bad mouth the “regs”. Those regulars are allowed to criticize you, but don’t you talk back to them!

I never joined The Knot (in terms of forums/postings) but geez, after reading that, I’m surprised anyone wants to.

We’re not supposed to bash The Knot! It agaisnt WB rules, it’s kinda rude, and sometimes it invites trouble.

I’m going to go ahead and close this thread. We love positivity here, so we can’t condone threads that are written to talk badly about another specific forum.
Here’s the line from our Terms of Service.
xii. Please do not link to or reference other discussion boards with the intent to disparage their members, content, or staff.
And if the thread was started by a newbee who doesn’t know the rule (maybe she found us after being on The Knot), it doesn’t hurt to add…
And to the original poster welcome to Weddingbee! We’re glad to have you here. 🙂
