Off-Topic Board Update

Hi BeautyTalkers! Happy Valentine's Day!

 

I posted this message in another thread but I wanted to post it here as well so everyone could see it.

 

BeautyTalk is a wonderful place to talk about beauty, get advice from brands, Pros, Beauty Advisors and each other, and to obsess over products. I also think it's a great place to be silly and get a respite from our day to day lives.

 

This is why we created the Off-Topic thread; we hoped people would make friends, and if they did, then in theory they would want to talk about something else other than beauty! That being said, I can see how with the redesign of the site, all of the off-topic threads on the homepage may seem a little overwhelming to a person who is just browsing for beauty advice.

 

So taking some advice our community members, we've removed the off-topic thread from the BeautyTalk homepage, so that those threads no longer show up in the feed. Please be advised that they are still there! All you need to do to see them is click on "The Lounge" category, or even bookmark that link for direct access. This was done to ensure that BeautyTalk is fun and helpful for everyone, and that we can accommodate the office party AND the frat party (because we do love both).

 

Thank you guys so much for continuing to participate in BT and make it a great community.

 

Your friendly Community Manager,

Candace

 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Agreed. I thought off-topic = lounge except not. It would be great if we can have a filter instead so everyone can view their preferred choice of topics. =)

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

YES! Thank you!

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I agree.  It'd be nice to have a catch-all subtopic for the beauty threads which might not fit into a specific area but are about beauty and therefore not really "off-topic."

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I know what you mean... but I also like to see off topic stuff too.  Sometimes we get great threads with awesome topics or just really funny ones.  I mean who doesn't like to laugh? Smiley Very Happy  From time to time certain topics, no matter what it is, will clog up the main page.  Give it a few hours or a day... it will go away.

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Thank you Candace! 

I love the off topic threads, they are a lot of fun, but have been clogging up the main page lately. 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Agree

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

THANK YOU Heart

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

This is an example of why I hate this new change. The thread I linked below is a GREAT one!!!

http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/What-do-you-think-about-photoshop-in-magazines/td-p/116651...

 

Now because of a few whining babies it's no longer on the main page.  Most people won't see it when I think everyone should see it.  It's a great topic and relates to beauty.  This isn't the only thread in off-topic that is great.  I really don't get why the off-topic board was moved out of the main page just because some people don't want to see a few topics... There's a lot of stuff I'm tired of seeing on the main page but I just scroll down.  Like everyone should.  It doesn't mean because there's an influx of off-topic posts in the last few days that everything should change.

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

i agree 100%

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I agree. If people don't want to see a post, don't click on it. There are plenty of topics I don't like seeing--Deyore, llamas, heart parties--but I don't go whining to Sephora about it. I think it's nice to have off-topic discussions because it lets you develop friendships with people. If people don't want to participate in those threads, they can ignore them. I'm honestly so annoyed with some of the threads and some of the people on BT, I'm considering leaving. It's just not fun anymore.

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I'm glad you feel that way. I got pretty sick of the five million VD posts you made. Nothing personal. I found them just as annoying as you seem to have found some other posts. At least we get to choose what to read and what to ignore. 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Would it be inappropriate for me to post a llama here? 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Llamas are never inappropriate. Smiley Happy

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Good point V!

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Yep , to much paula and llama love.. .guess some people don't like to laugh, but to make all of the off topic is just plain dumb. so I guess we will be forced to find somewhere else to shop too. 

 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Nordie's can't get to Canada fast enough Smiley Very Happy

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Feeling the same.

 

I feel like I am not good enough, or mature enough anymore. 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I really think it's too bad the swatch board and other relevant makeup threads are getting sequestered with the lot too. Smiley Sad

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

Yeah, the haul board is one of my favorites. 

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

I appreciate the change.  I don't mind the holiday threads, heart parties and llama pictures--actually of these three, I like the llamas the best--but it's nice not to have them clogging up the main page.

Re: Off-Topic Board Update

llamas are the new black Smiley Happy
