So I check on the other ddc's when I'm bored. I stumbled across a thread making fun of our DDC.. again.. Which doesn't suprise me or bother me since we ARE the Drama Llamas! BUT, they said we were "rough" on our hosts. I'd like to say that personally, I love our hosts and couldn't imagine giving them a hard time. They're in our shoes, pregnant, wives, mothers, working and taking on the added work of running our board. I might be naive to the post that that comment was about but I don't remember seeing any negativity toward our hosts. If there was, I'd like to say that I'm sorry that it happened. But I hope that our lovely hosts know that they are greatly appreciated.

I'm starting to love the way our board is shaping up and so what if we had a little drama running the evil trolls outta town.. We kick butt!! We are strong, brave women that voice our opinions and don't take any crap from anyone (lol) and I'm proud to be a member of the January Drama Llamas DDC!!

Thanks so much for posting this, I think you're right, as a group we do appreciate our hosts but its so easy not to mention it or take them for granted.

I for one definitely appreciate all that Marina'sMommy and anybodyinthere do!

EVERY DDC/PR goes through this. Seriously. I have been on so many different boards and forums over the years and never have I seen one that was able to escape the drama entirely. It's part of the nature of the internet.

But if you stick with it and come through the other side, it is totally worth it! I have formed amazing bonds with people on JM and other sites because once the drama clears, usually the people who have stuck around through it are closer than ever.

Definitely kudos to our hosts. I don't know when we've been hard on them. But if either of them are feeling unappreciated, let's just stop that train at the station!

You're both awesome.

Thanks ladies You're pretty awesome as well! And I agree, conflict is what helps strengthen those bonds. If you make it through conflict chances are you will come out stronger than ever, and will grow to appreciate each other even more. Plus we are all on a learning curve here, learning about each other's personalities and preferences. This is just our adjustment phase and I can definately see some amazing friendships coming from all this! We just have to stick together and not sweat the small stuff

December DDC http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...our-hosts.html

I don't know how much drama their DDC has had but I don't see anywhere where we've been rough on our hosts.

If our hosts aren't feeling appreciated, please know we love you! Things are crazy here but it's not b/c of our 'real' members IMO.

I have to say that just because a concern is voiced, does not mean that our hosts are not appreciated. I believe our hosts are very much so appreciated by everyone on our board! And, honestly, I am getting annoyed with everyone's fascinations with us. Are we that cool or something?

Whatever...if she has nothing better to do then comment on the way we treat our hosts then she needs to find a hobby.

Anyway, we love our hosts and I think they do a great job.

I agree. We never have post in our ddc about the others or how we can't believe the drama in their room. Unless it is for prayers for a member of their ddc. We must be pretty cool, not only do we have everyone stalking us we also don't talk badly about the other Months. And I'm sure they have a few trolls that haven't come out yet. There are always trolls in each DDC.

As for our host you both do a great job. I don't think we have been mean to you. I hope you would let us know if you felt that way.

I think that our hosts are doing a great job here. Sure, there have been a couple of complaints, but let's face it, no one can make everyone happy. I say keep up the good work and just ignore what others have to say. After all, we've heard that several of the other DDC's are pretty slow moving, so I guess we ARE cool to them. There's a lot of activity here!

They're just jealous. Our board is waay cool! lol. But seriously. I've been checking the Dec DDC the last few days to see how many have found out their genders (cuz that'll be us next month and I'm super excited!!!) And their board has barely moved. I swear the posts at the bottom have been there for days. And a lot of other boards are like that too.. And OUR board, You gotta go to page 2 by the end of the day to see what you missed. lol. We're a very active board with lots to talk about. I love it.. There's barely a dull moment and I hope we can stay this way. =) We're getting more comfortable with eachother and weeding out the trolls and bad eggs lol. It's just going to get better from here!

THIS!!! I love our hosts...I think every person, and that includes new hosts, go through adjustment stages trying to figure out their place. Think about when you were new to the board and the learning curve for figuring out the lingo, etc. It is a lot!!! And it is a lot for new hosts! I have full faith in our hosts and our board and truly am loving this group!

Thanks Casey and Marti!!!!!

Our hosts do a great job!! Given all the drama that has happened (and let's face it - we're all pregnant women here so anyone thinking thinking a DDC can avoid all drama is living in a fantasy land), they've handled it all very well!!! You ladies rock!!
