I just think there needs to be waaaaaay better communication. It seems really counter productive to say to clearly upset members “This is not up for discussion” and delete/close threads, then tell people everyone is trying their best to be open and “transparent” about what’s happening.

This was just really poorly handled all around. MHO of course.

@poppyseeds: I think you might like http://www.indiebride.com/  I *think* no one makes a profit, but I could be wrong. Any site you see that has an ad or a sponsor-makes money. Running a large internet community takes a lot of resources.

Unless someone takes it upon themselves to start a board, pay the hosting fees, get enough people to join to make it interesting, and get a team together to moderate it, they will always be subject to someone else’s message board rules.

Conforums.com is, I believe, a free resource. I’m part of a group on that site that migrated from Weddingchannel after the merger, and I’m pretty sure the girl who runs the board doesn’t have to pay…I could be mistaken, though.

@Oneeleven: She probably just didn’t request to have her name disabled. Or still wants to lurk.

@KatyElle: totally understand this. I happened to miss everything, as I always seem to (I must live under several rocks).

@sorrycharlie:

Oh I completely understand but I just figure if you’re gonna make hoopla about yourself departing then put your money where your mouth is and do it. Otherwise its just more drama on the Bee.
