girls I think we need to clear up the senior member thing, basically what happened was some girls were not incredibly responsible with the entire process, as in members who weren't on a whole lot were sent starfish and then never replied after their weddings to send them onto the next person....so Shelley volunteered to take it over and members who were already on the list stayed on the list. At this point every starfish has been replaced multiple times so we (the mods) have decided that it will just be easiest to let everyone buy their own starfish (and if you want to send one onto someone else go ahead-but beware they are incredibly fragile and might not come in perfect condition)
We are working on a way to keep a memory of all the girls who have used these and share them with the entire board. I promise you Shelley will be posting new info within the next week

    Awwh what a bummer that something so cool was abused! I guess that is what happen when so many different people are involved. I hope you ladies can think of a way to get this to work again. Good luck!

      Well said Christine, I was just going to post the same thing.

        thanks for clearing that up. to be honest, i thought that i was on that list, but i guess i was wrong. wish this had been thoroughly explained earlier...would have cleared up a lot of confusion on my part.

          we really tried to make it work, but people wouldn't return our messages, they'd never send the starfish and/or journal, and we couldn't get a hold of some people. it certainly wasn't for lack of trying!

            Lauren, you very well could have been on the list, I'm not sure because I haven't seen it, but after all of the end of 2007 weddings we had a very difficult time figuring out where all the starfish and journals were due to some members not responding or not sending theirs out. It actually took us several months to untangle where things were.

              Sounds like too much work for the mods who already have enough to take care of.

              What if we just make it a tradition to have a starfish if we bought it or got it from someone else. Then we can have a collection of pictures with everyone with starfish in their bouquets, but it doesn't have to be the same one.

                  Thanks Morgan but we have a pretty good plan in the works for the starfish - just figuring out the rest of the details - you will all see a post in the next week! :)

                    All you mods & your mod secrets. OK, I'll wait & see what's happening.
