    As far as the prettypig debate, it's very difficult not to feel something about her being banned.  Especially for those of us who have been around this forum for a significant amount of time and have been active on this thread.  She walked almost every one of his through this process either directly or indirectly and I guess for me, I feel like she was used for her insight and then thrown aside because people were "offended" by her ways.  A little inconsistent, since her ways were exactly the same in the beginning.  Oh I don't know say hundreds and hundreds of posts ago.

     

    In fact, I would recommend you go back and read her posts on selecting the correct vendor/dress from DHGATE.  That is, if her posts aren't deleted.  All debate aside, she did provide great step by step instructions.  If you can find her posts, it will help you.  Good luck.

    ginger, drop the topic.  prettypig was banned because she made not so nice remarks.  when she was warned by a moderator she gave them attitude.  when she was warned by me, she gave me a snarky response back.

     

    that is 3 strikes.  we have a pretty no-tolerance policy for being snarky to moderators/admin of the forum.  if you want more explanation, please read this thread: http://www.bestdesti...bers-get-banned

     

    here are specific parts of the thread that you might want to look at:

     

    Quote:
    There are no surprises here. Tammy (the host, administrator, and founder of BDW) runs the forum at no cost to you.

    ~~ If you do not understand the rules and/or choose not to follow them you may be banned.

    ~~ If you choose to badger the administration about the rules and what you think they should be, you may be banned.

    ~~You may not get a warning before being banned. Or your temporary ban may be your warning before a complete ban.

    We stand to gain nothing by banning members for no good reason. This is a forum where a diverse body of brides, grooms, and vendors is appreciated. We share with and learn from eachother. We appreciate our members and their cooperation with the policies here at BDW.

     

     

    Quote:
    I also wanted to add that any attitude or snarky behavior to the mods or admins will not be tolerated.

     

    Quote:
    What NOT to do when you get a warning or get banned:

    1. When you get a warning DO NOT reply saying that the rule is ridiculous, act indignant about the warning, or give attitude about the warning etc. This will lead to a ban.

    2. If you are banned DO NOT re-join just to post about how ridiculous it is that you were banned. This will just get your IP's banned.

    3. If you are banned DO NOT stalk me or the mods asking for an explanation on why you were banned. An explanation is given on the screen that tells why you are banned. We do not need to elaborate or give you an explanation that you deem satisfactory.

    4. If you are banned and want to get re-instated, DO NOT send a half-ass apology. getting 4 long emails from you saying you are sorry but the forum rules are stupid, then asking to be re-instated, is not going to fly. It is just going to re-inforce our decision to ban you as the right one.

    I know these all sound like very obvious Do's and Don'ts but you would be suprised.

     

    There is a reason rules are in place and people get banned.  I know you would like to think that it is ok to say whatever you want, without recourse but that is not the case here.  If moderators warn you about your attitude/posting/behavior/etc. you have 2 choices.  1. you can heed that warning or 2. you can disregard the warning, but do not be surprised if you lose forum privileges.

     

    if you want to continue the debate about why she was banned, let me know via pm.  it will make it easier to ban your account.

      Tell you what Tammy, I have no interest in continuing in a forum that operates under such ridiculous rules for "Some" and not others. I obviously hit a nerve with you. So, I will make it easy for you.  Delete away!

        Bride2012, there is a very nice replica dress posted in the my dress has arrived thread and there is the show your dress thread.  

        I am still catching up on the last 300+ pages and taking notes, I have to say things aren't the same since brides with the same attribute acted out.

          yes, I am catching up with so many pages, and taking notes from her advice.  Very pretty dress in rum pink by the way.  it is so vogue now to have soft pastel colors dresses as wedding dress.

                  I'm just shocked we would get banned for defending our friend who has helped us plan out our weddings and helped me get the perfect dress, and talked me through my proposal shock.
                  And whats worse, now another close friend of mine on here has left, because although we can't ask for her to return, and protest what we thought was unfair, we are yelled at and told that we too will be banned.

                  We are not trying to start Drama, not in the least. I simply don't understand how a small off handed comment about weight could make the mods and everyone else sensitive enough to ban 3 (if you choose to ban me, which I truly believe you will as you seem to be out to get those of us who cared about PPP's advice) of us.

                  I'm just so upset that you ladies who are supposed to be supportive could do that to people who have been nothing but active and helpful.
                  We aren't abusing anyone, and I have combed through these threads searching for these "Fat" references, and haven't found any.

                  I just thought that this community was above the pettiness and drama, and I'm sorry to see that we are not allowed to have a negative opinion but must be blindingly supportive.

                  I don't want to be banned, I just want my close friends (and myself) to be able to say things without having the whole site find it "offensive" and banning me.
                  There is a huge hole without the two you just banned, as they were the most helpful, kind, and active members on this thread.

                  My apologies to Tammy and Starchild for speaking up, I just respect this forum so much, and the ladies in it as well.


                  If I had but an hour of love, If that be all that is given me, An hour of love upon this earth, I would give my love to Thee. <3
