i just got the email that they sold PW to eHarmony on 7/3/08.  Talks about if we want to opt out of eHarmony's privacy policy, etc.  Good for Joe, Margaret, and Srini but maybe not so good for us???

As soon as I saw that email, I assumed there'd be a thread on here about it. I'm guessing that no one is thrilled about it, as we like the way things are and we all worry about drastic change.... that's why many of us are on here instead of TheKnot.


I definately have mixed feelings about it too. I'm betting this is a good thing for Joe, Margaret and Srini as I'm sure this site has grown beyond what just the three of them could maintain.


On the other hand, I'm not a fan of eHarmony for the same reason that jlilly mentioned. I thought about leaving too. But I think I'll stick around for a while. I love these boards and the women on here made the last stages of planning my wedding so much easier. I'd like to be here to help as long as I can.


Maybe Joe, Margaret or Srini can chime in here and reassure us that things won't change too much. While I haven't seen a bride or groom on here planning a same-sex wedding, it would be nice to know that there won't be any influence from eHarmony's exclusion policies.

i love this site because its easy to navigate, and not full of ads....and of course, the great brides on here....not to mention great "service" for lack of a better word, from Margaret, Joe, and Srini.... :)

ok ladies--- I'm outta here!


i loved this place b/c it was "homey" and confortable and all of the ladies here are mellow and respectful...


but that was the allure of it - to not be in something nuts like the knot - or something totally dead like the weddingchannel...


who wants to create a new forum???  me and the fish!   (Laff, c'mon - remember when jerry mcguire quit his job???)

Aw, c'mon D1rty... stick around a little while and see how it works out. If it starts to suck we can go somewhere else or start a new forum.

Hello,


Probably not everyone hasn't gotten an email yet, but it's true that we have been acquired by eHarmony.  We're really excited about where can take Project Wedding now that we're at eHarmony.  As abattyref alluded to, we will have much more time to focus on improving the site (i.e. instead of having to run a company) and we're expecting great things.


I know that people are fearful of change, but the thing to remember is that Margaret, Srini, and I are still the caretakers of this site.  So, of course we will see changes (and they should be for the positive), but the essence of Project Wedding will remian the same: keeping things easy to use and an awesome, supportive community.


I'll remain on the boards to answer questions, so please let me know if you have any.


Joe

Although some of you may have reservations about eHarmony acquiring Project Wedding, I believe Margaret, Joe, and Srini when they say that any changes will be for the better.  The more the site grows, the less possible it will be for only 3 people to run the entire thing, and that's where eHarmony can help.  Margaret, Joe and Srini will get more and better resources to make this site better. 


I trust them when they say this site will only improve!

Oh, and part of the reason why Project Wedding was started was that there would be a site that was BETTER than the knot.  So PW will definitely not go in that direction.

Seems like some people are concerned that the forums will not stay the helpful place they've been.  For me, that would be the last thing that I want to see as I've seen how much people have helped each other out. 


The good news is that forums don't magically change overnight - they're made up you, the community, so you have the power to keep these forums positive.

sadly, i've underwritten many a small-midsize company who gets acquired and even if things "dont" change - they do change...


it happens, and it's ok... change is good and change is constant... 


seriously serioulsy -  BEST OF LUCK to every lady on here!!!!!!


bye  :(

I agree Kohler!  I'm too hooked on your girls to abandon ship quite yet.  I don't like eHarmony's belief system and hopefully that won't infiltrate onto PW but I agree that you have to give something new a chance.  I'm just worried that more growth will mean a less personal site - something that makes PW so great!  I feel like I know you gals!
