I too came here from another wedding forum site. I’ve stayed here because I was appalled at how the members of this site spoke to me where this site seems so welcoming and more like a community. They were so condescending and rude and actually made me feel like crap for no reason. It felt like they got their kicks doing this. Like the mean girls club.
I’ve read that a lot of other brides on here have had this problem with the same site and they all say the same thing about how they were treated. What exactly is up with that board and why do they behave that way? More importantly, why are they allowed to behave that way. Is there something I’m missing that makes that site so snotty? What’s the story with them? I was just in shock to see how many people said the same thing about how they were welcomed yet it seems to just be the ‘norm’ there.

I’ve only been apart of this site…but ohhh what’s the other site…sounds juciy. *lol*
But I agree, this site is awesome! You get honesty from caring people. How awesome is that?

It doesn’t really matter does it? It’s like any other forum, some you jive with, some you won’t. I’ve given up on trying to figure out why people do what they do!

That act that way because they are allowed to behave that way. They are “allowed” to behave that way because no one who own the site happens to care if they are welcoming are not.
I love the weddingbee….

I’ve never been on the forum of the other site, becuase when I was planning my wedding, I stummbled onto the Bee looking for tutorials on DIY invitations, which I found immediately, so I stayed. 🙂
I think you will find that this site is an excellent resource not only with planning the specificities of your wedding, but being able to discuss the emotional aspects that come with planning a wedding, in an open and respectful manner.

I think they act that way because they can. People can turn nasty when they’re given a computer to hide behind and no one to call them out on it.
I just joined another forum recently (not related to weddings/relationships) and realized after one post that it’s an awful place. The mods were nonexistant, and everyone was harsh and snarky. I know the mods here get crap sometimes for enforcing the rules, but seriously I think they’re a huge part of what keeps this place great! Hatefulness and snark are really nipped in the bud here, which makes it such a nice place!

This is the only forum I’ve ever seen with a “no snark” policy and I wish everyone else would adopt it too.

I’ve never been on the other site and from what I’ve heard, I’m not missing anything. I think that weddingbee has a great team of mods and hostesses that are very on top of things and are able to keep people in check. Luckily, most people here keep themselves in check without help, but it’s nice to know that the mods are there to help when it’s needed!

uh yeah. I was there for a while. The vibe is completely different here. No one thinks they are the “queen of the boards”.
