Re-aligning the Chicken

    Hi, everybody! We've noticed that our conversations lately have been segmenting in different ways than they used to, and we're considering rearranging the forums to reflect this. More and more of our conversations have been off-topic, and we're not really using the WB forums as much. Since pretty much nobody here is planning a wedding anymore, we're not reading Weddingbee as much, and a lot of our snark material is coming from other sources. As such, we'd like suggestions on what kind of content you'd like to see here, and what topics other than weddings might want their own dedicated forums. For instance, we have the bloggers forum, and one for babies and parenting. We could also do something akin to Television Without Pity, or whatever other lifestyle and entertainment niches you think are gossip-worthy.

    I think we'll also be paring back the Weddingbee boards. We could easily have just one forum with as little activity as it's seeing lately. While we still LOVE making fun of those crazy bitches, it's just not that relevant to most of us anymore.

    So please, let us know your suggestions for snark material. Point us to your favorite crazy corners of the Web. Don't worry if it seems like you're sharing topics that won't appeal to everyone. You'd be surprised, and we love to dish about all kinds of fucked up things!

    I know this is is more gomi ish, but I love blogger snarling. Pro bloggers just think they are the best things ever. Maybe instagra, snark?

    Yeah, maybe a general board for funny images would be good.

    Like a "Pinterest, You are Drunk" type thing? Love it.

    I like that. Derpy GIFs and lolcats could go there too, though.

    Yeah, I think we could probably crunch down the WB section with not as many categories (or maybe just 1 category) and have more "off topic sections". I honestly have a hard time even reading WB anymore and I feel like most of the snark is kind of dead because all the same situations kind of keep repeating. There's nothing truly NEW.

    I'm doing some wholesale moving. Let me know if you see any individual threads that you think might belong in a better spot.

    Yeah. There's a little "mark all topics read" link you can click to fix that.

    I just noticed that. Thanks. :) At first I thought I'd have to click through them all.

    I'm liking the change to a weddings catch-all. However, I'll miss seeing the words "Paging Dr. Bee," because it reminds me of this horrible song (and thus makes me giggle).
