So where is everyone? Seriously? I think there are three or four of us regularly posting here!

How do we get all of our people back to the board? Any suggestions?

I really miss everyone!!

I sent PMs to you and to our fearless leader (you should see a link to PMs on the right on the main screen maybe?). Will send them to others tomorrow. Smile

And yes, we can always delete a FB group. I'd love it if everyone would update here, to be sure!

Yeah, I hear you Megan! I doubt Ivillage would appreciate that! Ha ha! I wouldn't want to switch away from it because obviously it's a great format here for us and we all love it! But maybe just in case, so that if we do lose our group we won't lose contact! I'd miss you guys!! Brie, if you know how to set one up and don't mind, maybe that would be a good backup for us. We can always delete it later if we don't need it right?

I can set one up for us. I've done a few for undergrad and grad groups... very easy to do.

Speaking of Nikki, I wonder how she's doing! I miss seeing her posts... as well as everyone else's!

Yeah, I think Nikki mentioned moving to FB at some point. But as an IVillage CL, I'm sure that's not something I can organize or promote. haha Kind of defeats my purpose :)

Yeah, I imagine everyone feels much busier now. Hopefully everyone will come back! I didn't know we could lose the board! :( Did Nikki mention something about a facebook group a while back?

I think part of it is just the baby thing -- I know when I had Jake back in 2000, our board died down a bit when babies were little (not quite as drastic as this, but somewhat). Hopefully as everyone gets into routines, we'll have more postings.

I think the other part is the new format. Still bugs, I've seen boardies elsewhere having to try several times to post anything. People give up sometimes when it's too challenging. It's a shame, too, because I know we can lose our group if not enough people post. The June 2012 doesn't even appear to exist anymore (??), and some 2012 playgroups are on one board (Jan - May)...

Hopefully all the stars will align and mommies will come back and the format will be a bit more stable, sooner rather than later. Smile
