I feel really childish for saying this...

But a lot of times especially lately, it seems like my posts on the main boards get overlooked or ignored. :( Frustrating.

Don't be afraid to bump your own posts! Just post "bump" and it'll kick your post back up to the top of the boards. Some times of day are really busy and it's easy for things to get lost in the shuffle.


Another good tip is to look at how you're titling your posts. Make it something descriptive. Instead of "Show me your....." and then making people enter your post to see "cake stand", make a title like "SMY Cake Stands" or "Need Cake Stand ideas." A lot of times if it's a generic/"mystery" title, people won't look.


Don't be too discouraged. We've all had threads that kind of go flat or disappear or don't get many responses. Just keep posting and bumping if it's important. It's not a popularity issue or people looking at your name and going "Ugh, BlissfulKate, I don't want to read anything she has to say!" I promise. :) A lot of times I don't even look at who has posted before I read a thread--I find threads that look interesting (again, here's where thread titles are important) and respond---I'll focus on who wrote it if it seems relevant.

Ditto LadyHope!


You have to make sure that the posts are seen, often times on the main board threads are overlooked because there are some many brides here now. The turnover rate for a thread is extremely high... take Lady's advice and make sure that the title is descriptive and eye catching!

Great advice, LadyHope!  Also, it may depend on what day and time you post.  Sometimes the boards are slow.  For examle, if you post on a Sunday afternoon and the boards aren't very busy that day then it may not get seen and then get bumped down by all of the new threads that pop up on Monday.

ditto on the other girls, if I'm looking for advice or inspiration or whatever I usually post on the weekdays during the day because weekend can be very slow! :)

I am with you Blissful, sometimes I feel like there is a clique of girls on here who only want to talk with eachother.  I know I sound like I'm in 7th grade saying that, but that is just the impression that I have been getting lately.  You can only 'bump' your own posts so many times before you stop posting...

i see it both ways. sometimes i really do feel like a negative nancy about it; how my posts hardly gets replies versus someone else gets more replies, even when it's not wedding related. eek! i really do try to reply to everyone's posts when im here on the board... but if i do miss i'm really sorry if i do!!!
