Haha.. I was *thinking* about it. I hosted the Thyroid Disorders board for like 2yrs. I actually was the one who started it. Is that a nomination, Ashley?

I was a host to the wttc board once before George. It was pretty lame IMO, lol. You have this title and these "expectations/responsibilities" and yet no power to do much of anything like remove spam, etc. I get irritated with the non existent hosts too. They want to be host, and yet they never post type of deal. My last DDC was like that, and the WTTC board was often like that.

I don't understand the point of "mommy guides" either though. My last ddc she seemed to be fairly non existent and this one too? Actually, did I miss something? Did we get a new one or did she change her username? I do have to say this one is a bit more active then the last ddc, but I would have thought they would have 'guided' and started conversational threads to get members started. I guess I'm just clueless! LOL

Aawwww!! Yeah, I'm trying to think if I want the responsibility of replying to most posts and then having to create 3-5 a week. This is my 5th baby. What topics can I possibly come up with? LOL

Jamie I was really hoping you applied!!! You felt/feel like one. You seem to keep your cool under pressure. When your head isn't in the toilet you start threads and keep things moving... Just sayin'

I did apply.
Truly, honestly I don't care- I just want peaceful hosts who have everyone's best interest and the forums best interest at heart.


Does admin just pick them or do we get a say? I have lurked so much I would have thought I would have known the answer but have no idea...



Who else has applied??? I have seen many ladies who would do an awesome job- APPLY!!!!

Lucy I was going to say you too, you're always so kind and helpful! I hope you get it!

Also I didn't apply and won't. I would make a horrible leader. There are a lot of ladies better for the job than me haha

I disagree! If it's something you are interested in and think you would enjoy, you should do it! All people care about it a good heart! You got that so you're set!

I don't believe we get a say. I think they take whoever applies unless there are multiple applicants, then they will pick and choose. I'm sure we can send a PM to them and give our preferences though...

I second this. We definitely need hosts that aren't going to cause issues. Personally, I hope they do ask for our input. The wrong host could make this DDC downright miserable (at which point I will make my exit).

Not true at all! I just have gotten to "know" Kelley and Lucy more through posting - that's all. We haven't really spoken yet. IF you would wanted to be one, by all means go for it!

Please don't go!

I'm going by the multiple comments being said, not just here. People assume tone and motives. No one here knows me IRL. That's ok. I'll be posting very little. My experience or advice is only acceptable if it agrees with the topic. I have no problem with keeping it to myself. I certainly wouldn't be welcomed as a host, so I have zero intentions of applying.
