Hi DT ladies,
I have an idea I've been thinking about for a while that I want to throw out there. I was thinking of starting a new Dreams Tulum thread (if everyone agrees to let this one die and the new one will be the main one) and on the first page of the thread having all the most frequently asked questions. So often on here we have the brides asking the same questions over and over, which is quite reasonable considering our thread is over 80 pages long and it's hard to find the information, and the thread has existed for so long now (over 6 months!) and so many brides have come and gone and we can't expect the new ones to know all this stuff. Also there is a lot of little discussions that would be pretty boring for a new person to have to shift through to find the info (don't get me wrong, I love the little discussions, hellos, "thank yous", "you look beautiful" type comments, etc, but the most important information is getting lost in the midst of all that.
So what do you think of the idea of starting a new thread where all the most FAQs are on the first page, as well as links to everone's reviews and pictures (i.e. we wouldn't have to have the seperate thread "list of Dreams Tulum brides") I will take responsibility for continually updating the first page as people ask new questions and answers in the thread. So the new thread would look exactly like this one (i.e. we can continue with all our semi-useless little discussions) but would have a super helpful and informative first page. So hopefully this would cut down on a lot of the repetitive questions.
Let me know what you think.
I don't want to see this thread die before reaching 100 pages though, and it will take a little while to compile all the info to start the new thread, so it could be done sometime in the next few weeks.
Alternatively, if we don't like the idea of starting a new thread (it would be sad to see this one die, especially since it's probably the longest thread on BDW!!!!) I could just do a seperate thread called "Dreams Tulum FAQ" and we could refer new brides there, but they are much less likely to see it, as it will be way in the back of the forum. We'd have to keep re-posting the link in this thread. As much as I hate to see this thread die, I think it would be better to have everything all in one place.
Let me know what you think! (oops, said that already, haha)
