Completely agree! They seem to have lots of abbreviations. Mosthly thought, I hate trying to search for anything! Not sure what I'm doing wrong... but I can never seem to find what I'm looking for. For me, everything here is much more user friendly... not to mention the members here are much more friendly and helpful!

I've never been on theknot.com or any other forum, but when I first joined here I did find some of the short forms pretty confusing! (FMIL, OOT, DH... VERY confusing at first!!!!)

I used to post on the DW boards when I was planning. I was lucky and the group of girls that posted when I did were all really chill and nice and I keep in close touch with a few of them still. I don't know how it is now, but it was a fast moving board when I was there.

 

I don't remember any secret code though.

I post on the DW board on the Knot...but that is the only one. The other Knot and Nest boards can be really brutal.

 

If you are talking about the DW board and you keep seeing people talking about "The Bow"...that is another private message board created by the DW girls. It's private because there have been many problems in the recent past with board vs. board cat fights...I kid you not. (Pun intended)

 

It seems that most other current and former "knotties" think that DW weddings are simply wrong etiquette wise. They come over and post attacks on the girls on the DW board and the whole thing explodes in to a cat fight. It is so ridiculous and high school like. The girls on the attack then post “come over and see the cat fight†messages on all the other boards. I admit that I think itâ€s really funny and have feed the Trolls myself by pointing out when they contradict themselves. When the cat fights arenâ€t going on, the DW girls are really cool and have lots of great ideas.

 

Iâ€ve thought about posting a link to this board on there…but am hesitant for fear of attack. foshizzle.bmpLol. I have seen a few of the girls on this board as well.

Ahh, I remember those same issues from when I was on the DW board, except we just shut the trolls out and didn't feed into their drama so they left us alone. I know that on the nest board that I visit (which is where the former knotties I was with went) there was talk about the DW trolls occassionally because it's so bad compared to when we were there.

 

I actually found out about this board from a post on the knot. I don't want those trolls coming over here though!
