Post in Besides Beauty

Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

What's going on? I thought, at first (or hoped in vain) it was because it was Valentines Day today that all my friends have been missing. Is it the new layout (of our threads being hidden in OT?) Please tell me the trades, TSB's, and general debauchery won't be sent to oblivion! 

Over the last year, you guys have been such a source of entertainment, education, fun, and so much more (I don't have friends who are as into beauty and/or silliness as you guys are.) 

 

Maybe I am being paranoid and it was just Valentines Day that sent everyone scattered and missing (or maybe it's just a strike), but it makes me sad to think that BT will be totally different from now on.

 

Bueller? Bueller? 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

gosh i don't even remember them now.  There were like two or three last weekend that got people all miffed because a couple of old timey BTers posted a couple of silly pictures on questions from newcomers. 99% of the off-topic stuff was contained in specific off-topic threads.  It really wasn't the epidemic some are making it out to be.  Then there were the reaction threads calling out the off-topic posters, one of which got so out of hand and judgy and finger pointing and obnoxious the mods shut it down.  From my perspective, it has been a lot of making a very big mountain out of a teeny tiny molehill.  The people posting off topic images/threads were never trying to be malicious or mock newcomers (or current members, for that matter) and then the finger pointing nastiness started and the whole thing snowballed.

Was it my Deyore posts?  I know I posted Deyore on a few new comers posts, but every time I recommended a "Deyore" product, it was a legitimate Dior product that would have worked great for them.  Sure, there was added sillyness, but I wouldn't call it "hijacking" anything.  Of course this might not be directed at my posts at all... I am really not sure.

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

By the way, I just want to say that I recommend Deyore for thread hijacking. Deyore helps you look your best whether you're hijacking or being hijacked.

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

Haters beware, I will never stop recommending Deyore!

I think it was a serious over reaction 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

OMG. I can't even. 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

10 hours later and I am still too excited about this picture. 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

I think it may be a bit of both- Valentine's Day and the new layout.

 

I loved BT and now it is just not the same anymore. I miss the fun but I understand that it is off topic and this is after all Beauty Talk. I think it was just with the influx of new members and all of them asking the same few questions that made it bad. Then people were posting stuff about Valentines Day and going off off topic that people didn't care for and that is why it got moved off of the front page.

 

I miss it! Please bring it back!

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

Better than expected. 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

LOVE IT!!!! Smiley Very Happy Heart

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

I agree with SydBristow, put off-topic back on the front page and let people choose what they want to see, BT! I miss the funny shenanigans! Smiley Sad

What's a silly party?? Does it include margaritas Smiley Happy

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

You can pass the margaritas over here. Smiley Wink sharing is caring. 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

That awkward moment when we've been shunned to OT

 

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

I really hate that I have to go to off-topic so I can find the fun ladies. God forbid Deyore, llamas, or Clarisonics get talked about and we're considered 'mean girls'. I feel like highschool where the loud and fun people were all sentenced to the back of the class or bus to be ignored. DON'T IGNORE ME BT. I AIN'T GOIN' ANYWHERE.

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

But Teresa, don't you know you can only use your Clarisonic with some Bud Light?? Let me go count how many cows I have, I might need to buy a Mia Smiley Very Happy

Re: Out of Curiosity (Please Read)

You need at least 7 cows for a mia. 8 if you're feeling fancy and want a colored one. It's in the rules- Paula told me so. And the internet doesn't lie. Ever. So don't get skimpy with the cows!
