BDW for Dummies...Searching Edition

Recommended Posts

For example, the other day I needed information on the restaurants at the Sheraton resort in Cabo. Instead of posting a new thread that said "Does anyone know anything about the restaurants at the Sheraton?", I proceeded to do a search and found lots of reviews from members who had already gotten married there. I also did my own searches on trip advisor and google to get more info. I was not able to find any pictures of the inside of a specific restaurant so I PMed two different members (who had been married there) and asked them their personal opinions on that restaurant and I also asked if they could send me some pics (assuming they had any).

 

I got all the info I needed just by doing a search and asking a select few members. This saved the forum a lot of space than me starting a new thread and just having everyone direct me to the old Sheraton threads anyway. See, its very useful to do a search.

Definitly true. Maybe if some regulars start hijacking more it will become the norm.

Other forums will attack you if you repost something. I think it's great that we never attack anyone here, but something needs to be done to cut down on the redundancy. Thanks for this thread! I'm off to make one just like it :)

great post Glenda, thanks for doing this and Newbies feel free to search and PM other members for more info, at some point we all have a hard time repeating ourselves in similar threads constantly.

Thanks, Glenda! I have noticed that I haven't been replying to threads as much because I feel like I'm answering the same question or issue that I did 6 months ago. Hopefully a lot of less repetitive threads will make the forum run a lot smoother.

 

BTW - I love your new siggy pic!

Good Job Glenda!

 

I think that the more people post the same things the less people actually respond, so if people use the search first they're likely to get more answers to their question through the old threads, then they will if they repost and no one wants to answer the same question for the 23rd time.

I loved that post. The example topics were so on target!! It's true though. I discovered this site on one of the night shifts I worked and read through all the posts on my resort. Found a lot of the answers I needed before I even signed up to be a member.

Question: What about the ongoing threads? Like the ones for the brides getting married at X Resort....are we allowed to keep those alive?

 

I know some where even started with the intentions of keeping topics all in one place instead of starting a new thread each time a question needed to be asked....Do the long ass threads take up a lot of bandwith too?

 

Like our Gran Bahia thread is a few pages long. Is it cool to keep using it for questions we have?

 

I hope I am making sense,....I am sleeeeeeeepy.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
