Because I am bored, this is a fun post!!
About the Hive:
I dislike that there is no ‘like’ button like on Facebook
I dislike that you cant block other bees from seeing your posts and comments and from seeing theirs.
I dislike that you cant delete comments.
I dislike that you dont get notifications when someone ‘tags’ you in their comment.
About the posts:
I dislike when a thread is written in all capitals, its hard to read so I usually just click out of it.
I dislike when bees apologise for large photos, honey if I cant see it I cant give an opinion, or admire it.
I think thats all, because lets face it – im addicted to this site!!
EDIT: Please no colour vs color debate. Its been shot to hell ladies

I always get a little cranky when I see girls asking for permission- I always just want to say “YES! You CAN do (insert mildly unusual but not totally crazy idea)- and you don’t even need to ask permission from a bunch of strangers!” I just want everyone to have to confidence to make themselves happy.
HowEVer- I am always glad that the bee (oh, 90% of the time) serves as a sounding board to prop them up to help make what they feel is a scary choice and doesn’t slap them down and reaffirm their fears.

I also that there is no ‘like’ button.
I also dislike that you cannot block posters, so you cannot see their posts.
I dislike that there are a large number of posters who ask for opinions, and then freak out when others have an opinion that differs from what they were wanting to hear.
I dislike when people post without paragraphs.
But, in the end, I cannot be too bothered, as I am still here after being married two years ;P

I dislike that there doesnt seem to be a way to organize your uploaded photos. I have some pictures I post constantly in response to the “show me your centrepiece/bouquet/ring/invitations/cakes” threads that i wish weren’t so mixed in with all the one time google image search stuff I upload to give people ideas, but dont want to delete from my folder because they’d disappear from a thread that might be helpful Down the line.
Ugh… High class problems here 🙂
@Pokemon: where did I miss a color/colour debate?? And have I set off another with this talk of my centrepieces??

I don’t like that the reply button feature is so shotty. Like if the comment’s on another page you can’t see what they’re replying to. I wish they would change the system to a quote one.
I wish there was notifications when someone tags you.
I hate people applogizing for size of pictures.
I don’t like how people come and make one post about how awful their life is or whatever. I wish there was a minimium of posts before you could start your own post.
I also hate how people comment on posts that are 4 years old haha.
And I hate when people don’t know how to use the enter button and they write just one huge paragraph. I don’t read those.
OOH and I wish there was a spell checker. I don’t understand why my spell check works on every other site except this one.

I dislike the fact that it goes to a second “page” after 40 posts. There is no need to limit page size like that these days. The limit should be at least 100, if not 200.
I like that there isn’t blocking. Anyway, it doesn’t work because this site is viewable by anyone. On another site, on the rare occasions when I get blocked, I just log out and then I can see what the person-who-doesn’t-like-me has written.
I dislike the way my posts are ordered. I would prefer it if my profile of recent posts was ordered by most recent reply, not most recent reply by me. That way, I can see if someone has replied on a thread I wrote on 5 days ago.
I dislike that we can’t edit posts after an hour.
I dislike the tiny font when I am editing. It starts out nice and big, then shrinks after a few seconds.
I LIKE the way most people are civil even when we disagree! In fact I like most of the people here 🙂
Post # 8
Oh and I hate that people can edit their first posts. I think there should be a restriction on the first post being changed. Like I hate it when I go to read a thread that’s got 1249823 posts, and the opening post reads
“Forget I asked”
Post # 9
I dislike the porn/stripper threads that come up so often, as they never get resolved.

@SpecialSundae: Eh… They’re always good for entertainment I guess?

@SapphireSun: the colour/color debate is where someone says ‘I hate when i see colour/color spelt color/colour learn to spell’ same goes for favourite/favorite, honour/honor ect. Its not wrong it is different in America (drop the u) to the rest of the world
Post # 12
I hate it when someone replies to a post and I have to go searching for that post to find out what that person replied to. This happens when the reply is not on the same page.
@page3poster clicked on reply
So what you see is this:
@page1poster I love that too!
Okay, so what does she “love too”? So I click on @page1poster and it should bring me up to that post but it doesn’t…. I have to go through page 2 and then page 1 to find the page1poster and I find out that she loves beach themes. If the poster and the reply are on the same page, it’s okay, it works.
Now, click on this blue @Pokemon: this should bring you up to the post # 1 but if I was on page 4 it won’t do that and I would have to go through all the pages to find it!
Post # 13
@Pokemon: haha, I thought maybe I missed an “America vs the rest of the world” thread on our frivolous use of that extra “u”.
Post # 14
that you can’t delete or edit your own posts! UGH!
Post # 15
the new classifieds. They suck. I looked ALL the time as a waiting bee and was so excited to start buying stuff and …..they went and messed it up.
Bah. They’re totally lame now
Post # 16
Spell check! I need it!!!
I also hate the diamond vs moissy threads. Calm the freak down, ladies! Either way, it’s a sparkly rock!
…I’ve had some wine…
