Ok ladies!! One of our mommas suggested I take a look at the November 2009 board, to get some ideas for setting up our board. I did, and I think it looks great! Silvera suggested I start a poll, so I thought this would be a great time to do so. I know we still have time for more members to join, but i think it might be best to get set up before there are too many of us and it becomes a mess. It's easier to add as women join, rather than be bombarded with everyone at once. KWIM?

Please take a look at the way the Nov 09 board organized their forums, and stickies, and come back here to cast your vote. The poll will be open till Wednesday!

Glad you agree! I never realized how much thought, and how many decisions, go into creating and running a DDC board! lol! We'll get it together sooner or later!

*bump*

Please make sure you all take a sec, to vote. This poll will be open till Wednesday. (not sure what time) I wanna make sure everyone, who's here so far, gets the chance to voice their opinion.

Once we get our board set up, we can start our belly pics and pregnancy journals!

I choose create a new one. It's not that I think there's anything wrong with the Nov DDC, I think it looks great, but I have been in 3 ddcs here at JM now and what I love the most about them is that each one evolves and is different that all the rest. What might be important to some is not important to others. So, I would say, we need to wait to get more members and see what evolves. JMO

Sounds like a good idea Christine, thank you for your input. Do you have forum ideas, that you'd like to see on our board? I am not the host or co-host, i'm just excited about getting our board going. To be honest, I'm getting OCD and I just quit smoking, so I need things to do and things to organize. lol! Sorry. I'll calm down in a couple weeks. I promise!!

LOL!! I know what you mean about getting excited. It's so hard not to....

Personally, I like how the Nov 09 DDC has all the Pregnancy Journal type things (bumps, etc) in a seperate sub folder. And having a private forum is always a good thing. Other than that, I really find that people don't look as much in the sub forums and it just tends to get lost.

A thread with EDDs are great and maybe even sticky a thread with an introduction thread where we all post an intro and some pictures. That way we have some way to put a name to a face if someone doesn't have pics in their siggy. That's all I'm coming up with off the top of my head!!

Congrats on quitting smoking! That's awesome!!

I see you're in Chicago - and I think I remember somewhere on TTC that you said you're Greek. Am I making that up? My mom's side of the family is Greek and living in Chicago!! Small world!!

Your ideas are great!! This poll was just to get everyone interested, and to get the ball rolling. I guess we'll go from there.

I am from Chicago, and my SO is Greek. I am Irish and German. We have two kids together, and this one on the way. And I have a boy from a previous relationship. Small world, is right! I'm betting my SO knows your family! You Greeks seem to know all the other Greeks, if not related to them!! lol! My SO works in Greektown, so he meets so many people. Does your family go to Greektown a lot?

Silverla---no prob...will do. It might take a week or so....lol! But it seems like the majority are happy with the November layout. We'll see? We will definitely let you know as soon as it's decided.

Just a suggestion, but since we have a lot of new members, I was thinking we should leave this open for a few more days.

The poll is already closed. You can post another poll if you'd like, so all the new members can vote.

I would really like to see three forums..

1. A forum for belly pics, where each of us have our own thread with our growing bellies, and we can edit and add to the thread throughout our pregnancies.

2. A forum where we can each have our own thread to post a journal, including any important dates, test results, u/s pics. (We can always post a thread on the main forum to show off an ultra sound pic, or share important info. I just like the idea of having our own threads to keep all of info in, for future reference.)


3. A private forum to hideout in.

We already have a sticky for the due dates. And i was thinking we could create stickies for due date buddies, gender lists, and cyber showers, later in our pregnancies.

This is a way to take ideas from other boards, to get us started, but yet still pick the forum layout and names of the forums on our own. What do you think about these ideas?

I think a forum for belly pics is always a good idea. For journals, what if we combine that with belly pics. In my experience, people don't end up keeping up with journals too long.

Private hide away is great too!
