Just Curious- do you find this forum "clique-ish"

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious and would like to hear from others. Do you find this forum to be kinda clique-ish? I love so much on here & get great ideas, but I find myself sometimes not wanting to contribute a thought because it seems so clique-ish sometimes. Kinda like people have their own little friends that they talk to and your voice just kinda gets lost here...

Honestly I can see why someone might feel that way... We are a HUGE community, and members do tend to break off into groups when they start finding others with similar interests, resorts, wedding dates, styles, etc. But I think we do a pretty good job of making sure there is something for anyone and everyone. Please don't let it stop you from contributing, think about it, the next person may feel that way about you... :)

no way girl! i'm sure there are people who don't even log-in, who read and "hear" what you're saying! (and they probably stole some of your boarding pass ideas because you did a great job)

 

i don't really talk to anyone specific on here, we can start a Chicago clique!  ;-)

I think that in any social network, there are cliques.  But I have found people to be incredibly helpful, especially when they see you are going to contribute...

 

I think there are a lot of people that come on here and ask a question or two and then you never see them again.  I can see how that would get frustrating or annoying to others.

 

BTW- I think the midwest brides should unite:)

Totally agree with this.

 

One thing I noticed when I joined is that I started new threads when I wanted to ask a question and would get very few responses... and like you, I felt a bit like I was being ignored.  But then I started posting in some of the more established threads, and got TONS of responses!  I think its more that people revisit the same threads over and over, so you'll be more "noticed" by posting in one of those than by starting a new thread.

 

Overall, people are super helpful if they do see your messages.  Try posting in one for the resort you will be getting married at, i'm sure there will be a lot of help for you there :)

I'm not saying you're one of these people - I have no idea what threads you've started since I'm not an everyday member of the forum anymore, but sometimes I ignore new threads because the question asked has been done so several times, that answering it again starts to get frustrating when the answer is already out there... KWIM?  It has nothing to do with you in any way! :)

 

Having said that, I have a number of friends that I've made on this forum, so yeah, I'm probably more likely to chat with them because I know them... but it doesn't mean to say I won't chat with others either.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
