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.
I think I understand, and good question. But honestly, I don't think the importance of using the search before asking a question that may have already been asked is as critical for the server performance as it is for 1) keeping the forum organized - it's so much nicer to have only a couple main threads on a topic rather than having a bunch that all say the same thing and 2) keeping the sanity of the existing members and moderators - like others have said, it's frustrating to work so hard to keep this forum running and organized like we all do (I am constantly moving threads to their proper location, etc.) just to have someone come in and ignore the simple layout of this forum, and the fairly intuitive search feature and want us to do their work for them. and it's a tad annoying to have to answer the same question 10 times a week when a simple search would find the answer.

So in short, if there's already a thread out there on the topic you'd like to discuss - absolutely revive it!

Thanks Glenda! Hopefully this helps. Some of us that have been here for a while need to feed our addiction for new info. I get so excited to see how many unread posts i have when I log, only to get let down because so many of them are questions that are already answered...but I still love it here! :)

AWESOME post Glenda... sooo much time is spent cleaning up this forum. I don't think people realize how much "housekeeping" the moderators have to do around here. Organized searching will really help...

Well done, Glenda. I'm sure we're all guilty to some extent for not using the search, or starting a thread that could be tacked on somewhere (me, too). But this is a good reminder, and something that we should immediately make sticky - and have all newbies read as a matter of course; same as an inital post.

What if you make new invitations? Do you tag them on the end of another thread or start a new one?

 

Also, if people just have something silly to post, is it fine to put it in the chit chat thread? That one can easily be wiped out periodically right?

 

Is the goal not to limit the number of threads posted, but to limit the number of threads that say the exact same thing?

 

I think it has been fun to see old threads revivied after this post. I can see how there really were just a few brides in the beginning.

Wait a minute..... I am still confused..... Is my marriage in Mexico legal? It was done at an all-inclusive. Does that matter? Also we might be going to Mexico in July for our anniversary. Does anyone know what the weather will be like that week?

 

Ahh, fuck it, I'll just start a new thread in the wrong section and ask a bunch of random crap all at once.

 

P.S. Thanks for getting that out there Glenda. I hope it helps a lot of people on here to use the forum mo' better. Are beach weddings legal? What if we bring our own silk flowers. That might help right? I am sooooo confused.

    • I hope that the silence doesn't mean it was called off?  
    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
