Re: wow the board is dead

  • Wha wha WhA? There's a FB group? I guess it's because I was a Feb 2011 mom, but DS was born early so by the time I made it here, it was already dead. What's the link to the FB group?

  • I just started bumping after the baby was born so I am now hanging out on the 3-6 board because it is so much more active than this one.  Is the FB group still open?  Would love to be a part if it is.....
  • No sorry it's not still open!! We are a private and closed off group!!
  • we are keeping it to just the girls we were pregnant with. we talk about our vaginas. we dont want strangers to know intimate details about our gentlemen greeters.

    but it looks like the majority of the jan mommas are on fb anyway.

    OK - thanks for letting me know.  I am on FB and I am a Jan mom, but I can understand if you are already and established group and don't want to open it up. I will hang out on the 3-6 month board - it is pretty active.

  • So, you're just here to gloat that the FB group is awesome and the board sucks and we're totes not allowed to join?  awesome.  thanks.

    I am very curious how things played out for some of our moms... the diabetic homesteader mom from VT, for one, and whether njbrit had a boy or girl (and what they ended up naming it!) and lots of others.  But that doesn't really fit in with the na na na na boo boo of it all, unfortunately for my un-sated curiosity. lol.

    Wow...

    I'm at a loss as to how to respond to this. And I was with those gals since this time last year.

    I personally don't have FB.

  • I obviously can't speak for anyone else, but I don't think anyone was trying to gloat.

     The thing about the facebook group is that we recently had a huge problem with lurkers. There were 50 or so women who joined the group but never posted, and those of us who have gotten close didn't want anyone who didn't want to share their lives with us to be able to read all of the personal things we were posting.

    That's why the group is closed. So that we can maintain the 'tone' of the group. We aren't keeping people out to be 'exclusive' and we certainly don't think we are better than anyone who just posts on TB.

    I'm sorry there are some of you who never joined, but in our defense, there were many, many posts about joining the group, and anyone who didn't join either wasn't active enough over here to have seen the posts or chose not to join for their own reasons.

    Yeah, this is why I personally didn't join.  My name IRL is pretty unique, and the Bump in general plays host to a lot of crazies... there've been people in the past who have called places of work and sh*t to tell employers that posters were wasting time on The Bump all day.  Seriously.  I had no idea how 'exclusive' membership in the FB group was, so I opted for security and didn't join.  Which is my choice, obviously, and not what I take issue with, even though I 'wish', puppies and rainbows styles, that some people would come over here and give updates.

    The thing I'm not a fan of is that, every couple of weeks somebody comes over and comments in the same breath about how totally dead the board is and also how awesome FB is but no, nobody else can join.  Even if it isn't said with the intent to be obnoxious, it most certainly comes off that way, especially when that's the entire content of the post.

    Though, I'll totally take a dead board over three pages of posts about motherf*ckin flu shots. lol.

  • Yeah, I stopped reading here when it became clear that I had to join the FB group (not an option for me, sorry) to keep up with everyone. I said it was lame then, and I think it's even more lame now. Not everyone wants to be on a first-name basis with randoms from the Bump. Plus I have my own mom friends on my FB friends list.

    I'm mostly on 3-6 now & the Cloth Diapering board these days.

    I totally get that. I'm sorry that it is happening. =(

    I'll try and pop over here more often. Not that I'm personally going to liven up the board, but I think it would be nice for some of us to still interact and catch up here.

    I still lurk at work, but can start posting again to help too!  I can't get FB at work and I KNOW that's a good thing.

  • I didn't join the FB because I am already on facebook too much.  I also kind of thought that group would be a flash in the pan and people would be back.  Guess not, and I wish y'all the best, but I do think it's kind of a shame you did a bump mass exodus.  And to gloat about the group being private...lame.  As others mentioned, some people can't/don't facebook.  Anyway, hope everyone's babies are doing great. 

  • I didn't even get FB until recently... it just wasn't a big deal to me. And to the PP who came off so rudely... yeah, stay on FB, please.

    The board IS dead, and I really wish it wasn't. I really liked a good amount of the mommas and it sucks to lose that. I primarily visit 3-6, and lurk on the names and nursery gear boards. Meh. It'd be nice to have some mommas come back... at least for HDBD so we can see all of the babes getting bigger. ;)

  • I heard about what's going on here.  I had to come and see for myself.  Wow.  Some of you people are really self-centered biitches. 

    I guess I was right to decide VERY early on that I didn't want to play on the month boards.  Even my ute must have known something was up.  I managed to push my kid out in December.  

    Well, to the people that are "not wanted" by the January Facebook gestapo... hang out on 3-6.  It's not so "closed off". 

    Basically, if you're not willing to give these chicks your real life name/info then you can't play with them.  Screw that.  That's a complete power trip. Don't let them bother you.

    Even my site isn't that stuck up.

    It has nothing to do with being stuck up. We created the group because many of us had gotten very close and we wanted to stay in touch after the babies were born, share pics, etc. Anyone on the board was allowed to join. We have since closed it, because things have gotten pretty personal and we don't want to share everything with people we don't know. And what would you know about us? You never participated in this board at all.

    Oh, well hi there, Emjay.

    It's so awesome of you to come to the January 2011 board to biitch about us and pimp your site. 

    I'm giggling about the 'gestapo' comment. Aren't you cute and clever.

    I think I can speak for all of the Jan 2011 momma (at the least ones in the FB group) when I say that we are just so, so heartbroken that you thought we were too lame to hang out with you.

    Really, we cry ourselves to sleep about it every night.

    Don't go giving BrittRMere too much credit.  She had a login on my site and I had to delete her because she thought she would be clever and make a login with a different name, and no one would know.

    I don't give one fat rat's ass about being in January 2011's board, or their Facebook.  That's right Britt.  You were too lame for me to hang out with on here, but even after you snuck onto my website, I had to kick you off of there.

    Also, I didn't pimp out my site.  That would insinuate I was trying to appeal to you guys.  HELL NEVER!  Haha... seriously.

    If you think it embarrasses me or makes me feel stupid every time you bring that up you're about 15 shades of wrong.

    I would work on new material if I gave a damn.   I just think you're a hypocrite and I think that should be handled in full disclosure. 

    Truth remains.  This was, and is now even more so, a super sad month board.   I wish I had known Avery would be early.  I would have never even peeked over here.  Bleh.
