I don't know if you have ever noticed this, Music, Free, xxxs, Rishi, Mhash, Meliss and other regulars, but there are plenty of other boards on iVillage.

I've found over the years that the "fluff" doesn't work here.

I agree that this is now the best board in the Singles & Dating group and we have some interesting topics.

I agree...I don't know how long everyone else has been around, but I've been here longer than ivillage even has record of, because I know I joined prior to 2004. Anyway, Shy has been the CL for almost that entire duration. I can tell her posts, as well as her replies, are well thought out and quite sincere. I've seen co-CL's come and go (and countless trolls, oh lord) and I have to say, I'm so glad she's stuck around! I honestly doubt I'd still be coming back here if it weren't for that fact. Thanks Marina!

cfk, I had to look to see how long I've been an iV member. 2003! Us old timers have seen CLs come and go as well. It's a tough job sometimes and I appreciate Shywon's longevity.

Cfk- I don't know if you remember the board changes back in 2003- from when we had archive monsters and all the threads were outlined- but that's as far back as the dates remember. My join date was sometime in 2001, I believe, but that record is gone. My post count is also way off because the majority of my posts over the past ten years were made in my CL- shywon name, not my regular name.

I'm still not over the loss of the old format, and it's been over a year.

Amen Marina! Thank you very much for thinking about this subject. While I am not a long time member with this username, I have been a lurker for years, the Fact that I post here fairly regularly really attests to the great leadership and sense of community on this board. It really is a great board! Kudos to everyone particularly Shywon! :)
