First let me say that this is not intended to step on anyone’s toes by any means. It was brought to my attention and I, too, have noticed this. The concern is basically what gets posted in each thread. It seems that threads have gotten “bogged” down with posts that really don’t belong there. So, I am thinking if we all try to get back on track with the original intention of each thread that maybe it will make it easier.
Here I will post what BB has posted as the “purpose” of each thread. I have added some thoughts on each based on my experience and chats with members. Please, don’t take offense with this. Your ideas will help make all these threads more effective.
Bountiful Baby talk—No “For Sale”, “Trade”, or “Drawings” postings.
----basically all our reborn chit chat and questions, etc.
Marketing, Selling, Shipping (eBay, etc.)
Tips and questions on marketing & selling, including photography.
-----this is an area where people can share what works for them or if they have questions and concerns in these areas. It is not intended for ebay, etsy or website listings. Those would go in the For Sale section.
Reborn Tips & Questions
----self-explanatory—lots of good stuff here. If you know of a good tip here, maybe you would consider bumping it up and refreshing everyone’s mind.
Please share your reborning tutorials!
-----there are some excellent tutorials hidden amongst the unrelated posts. If you know of one, bump that up, too. It’s nice to periodically review and learn.
Show your reborns here!
-----Show us your babies. I, personally, would like to see the photos rather than the links. I know there have been some Photobucket issues lately. Just my opinion.
For personal use only.
----My understanding with this thread was that when we requested this it was with the intention that all items be reborn related. This is where ebay listing could be posted as well.
Bountiful Babies - FOR SALE
----This might be a “hot” topic, but… several people wanted this changed as a place to sell babies other than ebay, etsy, uhippo, or websites. So, people are asking that ebay listings not go here, but in the For Sale section. It is the desire of many that it be left as a place where others can come to directly purchase a BB reborn baby.
For things to trade, and things to “wish for”. Everything here is for “trade” only.
-----like the For Sale section, this was with the intent that items be reborn related.
Work In Progress
------Show us your Work in Progress babies, ask for feedback or suggestions, or just brag.
Want to talk about something other than dollies? Here’s the place!
-----Here’s where all the rest goes. Lots of inspiration and prayers going on here.
I think together we can make BB an even better place and a great source for help, sales, and friendship. Thanks for considering some of these ideas.
