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 🙂

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”

I dislike the porn/stripper threads that come up so often, as they never get resolved.

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.

For example:

@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!

@Pokemon:  haha, I thought maybe I missed an “America vs the rest of the world” thread on our frivolous use of that extra “u”.

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

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…
