@JenniMichele: It got deleted pretty quickly.  But seriously, I opened the post and the troll had gone psycho, used every inappropriate word you could think of, lol.  I forget who the hostess was that they were telling off.  It was a post dissing wedding wire I think.

@MandaMack: I totally agree about posts with touchy subjects. People get really surprised when others have things to say that they dont like especially regarding cash bars, etiquette when it comes to inviting guests, how young someone is, etc. If you have been around the hive then you know what will set people off – so why start?

i hate when vendors or whoever comment on your board saying “i have that dress for sale” or whatever but they only have one post and u know its a vendor. or when people ask about a site like bestbridalprices.com and all of a sudden you get posts from 25 new bees saying how great it is, when u know those are all employees making acctns to comment.

@PitBulLover: Like fine if you want to start the post, but don’t do the following when the storm commences:

  1. pretend you didn’t realize the sh*t was going to hit the fan
  2. freak out and say everyone is mean because they think 16 IS too young too get married, or you shouldn’t have a cash bar, or whatever else.

Either put your big girl panties on or have the thread closed, don’t freak out on people for not agreeing with you.

@Mrs. DG: Responses like you are talking about are actually helpful, I just meant when people imply that your thread shouldn’t be answered since there have been similar threads in the past. I don’t mind links to other threads in general, esp when they have lots of pictures. I feel like that happened a lot when I first signed up and a lot of the people who used to do it are no longer around.

I also wish we had the power to delete posts or edit our own posts at any time!

Word on the giant picture thing!  Half the time it’s not even that big and I’m like “what are they talking about?”

I get annoyed when someone bumps a thread that’s been dead and not posted on for like a year.  Also bad grammar and internet lingo (LOL, ur, u, bcuz, LMAO).  Just type it out.

I get a little annoyed when I feel like someone is “using” the boards… Like when someone (usually with a post count under 10) comes on and posts a question, gets a bunch of responses, and then never replies! I always like to circle back to threads I’ve posted on to see what the OP thought of the advice they got so I’m disappointed when they never respond. I also get a little annoyed when people post like 15 new threads in one day, but never really takes the time to comment on anyone else’s. I guess I just feel like this is a really cool place and we’re supposed to support each other.. so I’m annoyed when posters use it as a one way street. 

But honestly I don’t let it bother me much. Some people just don’t “get” the ‘bee. 🙂

The offensive thing really is annoying. It’s like every word you type you have to read over and make sure you aren’t “offending” anymore. Lame!

LOL (oops i just annoyed Chillmer) 🙂 just kidding

I don’t think anyone should be able to close their own threads when they don’t like what they’re hearing.

I also don’t like it when people don’t read the whole thread before they respond. Many times they are talking about the original question when the OP has added more information, which might change how they answer.

@ItWasntMe: I agree, but at the same time sometimes it is SO hard to read through every response if it has gotten really long.  If that’s the case I’ll usually glance through for any additional infor from the OP but won’t necessarily read all the other responses.

agree about the deleting of posts and the WBS – i also get annoyed with the pasting thing every once in a while. personally, i’d like it if we could have plain text copying as a default and then have the option of “Word” pasting. this little thing means i can’t respond via iPhone because you can’t type in the actual comment box, but you can type in the “paste as plain text” … but the paste never takes because it’s in a new window! so it’s kind of annoying because then i have to wait ’til i get back to a computer which means i’ve probably forgotten what i was going to say in the first place.

@CorgiTales: Sometimes I feel bad if I start more then a few posts in one day…but some days are just way more wedding-centric then others for me.  I do always try to post on other peoples threads if I’m starting my own though!

@elliestan:  You can comment on the boards through your iPhone.  In the box where you type your response, select the “HTML” button.  It will open up a new window where you can type your response.  Then when you are done hit the “submit” button (it might be called something else, but I think you get what I mean).  It will go back to the Weddingbee window and your response will appear in the post box.  Then just hit submit and you are good to go!  It is a bit of a hassle, but not too bad all in all.  If this doesn’t make sense, let me know and I will try to explain it better!

@MandaMack: no that is not what i mean at all! everyone has days where they post a bunch of stuff. I’m just talking about some people who come on here and post a whole bunch of threads and almost never post on anything except their own. Its like having that friend that only ever calls you to tell you about THEIR life and then suddenly has to go when you try to share what is going on with you… ya know?
