I am not real thrilled about the idea. But at the same time I am not a Facebook user so I hope everyone stays here. It does sound like it has the potential to get a bit weird with other people.

Well Ruby smashed my smart phone on the bathroom tile tonight and so no more mobile Facebook for me. I am actually kind of looking forward to the smart phone break.

I try to remember to get on here. I much prefer being on JM, but all the action is on FB. I was in the Aug PR for a hot minute with my first pregnancy and remember liking the ladies, but don't really know any of them since I wasn't there long. I think if we all get along it could be a good thing. And I agree about the quality of posts. Plus, with the format on FB, threads can die a premature death.

I voted yes because noone comes on here anymore, except for the people that won't do FB. I go on here often, but noone posts anymore..... and everyone prefers FB. So it's up to ya'll.

What happened with picking another cohost?

I'd be willing to do it; just not sure what all exactly I'd have to do. But if someone is needed, I can definitely step up!

I think Jinnah applied. I don't think the admins really care about 2 cohosts for slow boards... they aren't in any hurry and they weren't when I first stepped down either.

Yeah I applied when you stepped down and so did morgan, and we didnt hear crap. I think it'll be good for us to talk to the merging boards first, get to know them, before moving over....

I know that I don't post here much but I like the idea of maybe just put in on the table but hold off awhile longer. I am trying to get back here but it maybe slow. There are a lot of moms in the September PR that are also in my April 10 and they are so amazing moms.

I also think that is still a broad range of ages at the moment. Maybe when the babies get a bit older and closer in milestones.

But that is just me.

Hiya ladies, I'm from the August PR. Just wanted to say the following few things about a merger in general since there are a few concerns:

Your board here is a public board. Your private area and/or FB group are private, but anything you post on the main board here can be read by anybody. So anyone from another PR can read it and/or reply regardless of a merger. You'd still have your own FB group for private private posts. There would be no need to have a private JM group attached to a merged PR at first until people got to know each other and members felt comfortable enough to ask for one.

The idea of the merger was to maintain a group with babies born around the same time and developing similarly here on JM, for those who prefer to post here or who don't have FB at all. I understand that some mergers have gone pear-shaped in the past, but every group is different. I feel that a new merged PR would have a similar feel to a brand new DDC, some GTKY stuff would be needed to get the chat going of course, people would be aware of that.

Some people from July / August / September / October will in fact know each other from the TTC boards as would have been TTC together. For example, I recognise Robyn and Nina from this thread and also Melissa (KMH) from another board where I posted with you in the past.

It's entirely up to you guys what you do now the voting is over and if you decide to carry on alone for a bit you are always welcome to join with us in the future. Lots of love!!

To be honest, I am sort of thinking that other people from other boards who wanted us to merge with them voted in this, throwing off the numbers. We don't have 22 active users right now that would have voted. I wish I had made this poll so that those who voted would show up.

What do you ladies think?

Do you want me to post a new poll where people can respond with a yes or no publicly? Or do we want to call this good?

I was also wondering about the voting ... The yes votes were winning, but more people were writing that they didn't want it ...

Redo the poll or keeping it is okay with me. I voted for the merge but I already post in the September forums as well since Melody was born September 27th.

I'm not hearing any overwhelming support for a merge, so I'd say we should keep things the way they are and reevaluate in the future if necessary.

I also did vote yes but wont be offended if you all decide otherwise if you want to redo the poll so names show that may be a good way to keep any questions away.

I'd say redo the poll so we can go by what the actual members of the October playroom say.

ok, I will re-post the poll tonight after the kids go to bed, and we will only count votes from people who are active in our playroom.
