I guess we need to get some names
For subforums, and what kind if subforums do y'all want? I know we will do birth stories at some point, due date buddies I think will be one but what else do y'all want? And throw some names out. Hopefully in this thread we can work through all of that and not have 500 more polls lol

I wouldn't mind seeing an area where we can post deals and coupon codes haven't thought about name yet. I thought maybe an inspirational section where we could post quotes or poems or something like that.no name for that one either. If we gonna be themed after food then it might be a good idea to share recipes to. Again gonna have to brainstorm some.

What about a sub forum for general off-topic stuff? Or one for venting? I think lurking other DDCs is a good idea.

Some sub forums that tend to be popular are:

belly& u/s pics ( I think someone suggested calling this jellybeans and gumdrops)
birth stories( we could call this something along the line of new arrivals at the Candy Shoppe)
***usually after the births those 2 can be combined***
Vents section(someone suggested calling this Sour PatchKids or we could even just call it the sour patch)
Homey section (recipes, crafty ideas, etc)
Breast feeding section ( someone suggested calling it the Milky Way)
Fitness/healthy eating section

Some other ideas, not necessarily subfoum ideas, but maybe weekly topics...

Sugar daddies ( great things the daddies are doing)
Milk Duds ( the not great things they are doing )
Airheads or dum dums (prego brain moments)
Butterfinger ( clumsy moments)
Payday ( money topics, couponing, etc)

Taken from the game Candylane...thought some of these would be fun

Candy Castle - The location the players are attempting to reach.
Gingerbread Plum Trees - Where Plumpy sits eating plums from his gingerbread trees.
Gumdrop Mountains - Offers a "gumdrop path", or a shortcut.
Licorice Castle - A black and red licorice castle with licorice bats.
Lollipop Woods - A forest of rainbow lollipops, which resemble trees.
Molasses Swamp - A swamp of molasses with brown popsicle plants.
Peanut Brittle House - A cottage made of peanut brittle with peanut plants growing outside.
Peppermint Forest - A snowy thicket of peppermint candy canes.
Ice Cream Sea - A bubbly ice cream sea where Queen Frostine resides.

Will we have a private subforum? I would like that. I already have an idea for a topic I would want to start in there (a VBAC support/encouragement thread just for our DDC, since I think there are 3 or more of us hoping for a VBAC!). I can't think of a good candy name right now for a private forum, though - lol.

I recommend keeping it to only a couple subgroups. Or else the posts are so segmented that people miss them. My recommendations are a private forum, birth stories(eventually), u/s and belly pics, and maybe a recipe one or general homemaking one. We had a breast feeding one in my last group but people went in there so rarely that people just ended up posting on the regular board so that people would see it.

I really like the idea of a recipe sub forum. I have not been doing so well with healthy eating the last few weeks. Maybe we can share recipes and encourage each other to stay on the healthy band wagon!

I agree with this. We have one subforum so far and i always forgot about it already, unless someone posts in the main forum that they posted in the subforum lol. At that point you may as well post in the main forum right?
