Sad really isn't it..
You are so right, it is indeed sad. We are so sorry to lose anyone. (Cynthia's out this week, but the CM covering for her today..as it's been different people throughout the week..will head over to respond. Thank you for pointing it out!)
It's very sad to see Suzan,However not too surprising given what has been going on here for already months now.I have lost half my board members on both boards .. probably more.TO that use to be very active is a ghost down.Honestly I don't even come here as often anymore like I use ..Too much *work*, more like a *chore* with all the log in issues & more ::shaking head::And that just isn't fun you know ..Least your boardie said she will try to come back soon :)
I have noticed that a lot of the board member are gone. Combined with the google forum problem,the censor problems,not being able to log in. Having a you can't screen after logging ing(yes that changes but who is going to wait. Lack of the email updates on forums new posts,the misleading screen showing "0" posts. The difficulty in siggies and avatars has led to this.
We have been bleeding the high posters for years. After the first "upgrade" we lost plenty. The "fun" has declined. Yes there were problems too some boards had cliques that were very hostile to posts that did not fit the "party line". The adult boards have to deal with a censor that is out of control. Many people do write in a stream of consciousness. When they cannot express themselves in a way they think, it discourages posting. Not everybody has a huge vocabulary and comprehending this current censor's inane rulings takes patience. Patience is not a good thing to have when a person emotionally is posting. A better approach would be to underline the affected word. Trying to figure out what one word that the censor does not like in a post is so frustrating.
I am CL for Heart Health. It's been real discouraging lately...:(...
If I am finding it hard can you imagine how others feel?
I have been at ivillage for many years.
I am trying to hang on but it's not easy.
Very sad but true Suzan,Between holidays, real life & all the issues here ..Once gone, gone for good usually ::sigh::
I just wanted to pop in and commiserate with you all. I have been a CL for 8 years. Quick and Easy Recipes has always been hopping. 100+ posts days were not unusual. That last change was awful, we lost some people, but we weathered the storm. This one totally harpooned us. I have been talking to myself for 3 days now. My board is GONE. They said 2 months is ludicrous to get this tech stuff fixed. They went to Google. I am lost. This is so, so, sad. And discouraging.
I don't have anything new to add -- Jess posted an update yesterday -- but did want you to know I read through all your posts. With sadness. I'm sorry to lose anyone. You all mean something to us and I want to be sure you all know that.
