MSE Defectors Unite!

Post  pullipte on Tue Aug 21, 2012 4:45 am

I can't believe that a simple link to our blogs has led to this, but for me it was a step too far when we couldn't link to our own blogs yet Martin can happily promote his.

Hopefully we can turn this into an amazing place where we can share our work etc. It would be great to have a shopping forum where we can post any bargains we find! And our own general gassing where we can complain about our other halves lol

Least this is a place to call our own, and no one can change the rules!

Well apart from the fact I may have messed up trying to register, I agree great idea.

The admin's reply to PT's thread was a little aggressive in my opinion.

I wonder how long it will take us to get to 178 pages over here!

Really good idea, thank you both for setting it up.

I thought it was OTT as well, it annoyed me greatly that Martin is allowed to have a blog and promote allsorts of tat through it, yet we cant simply link to photo's?

It seems that after reading my post the mods then sought out the thread and removed some of my posts, including one where I asked who would be interested in a forum like this.

The reply was way OTT. So many people post links to blogs etc, not just us.

But pffffft to them! Razz

It's all went a bit downhill since Martin sold it off...

Anyway Hi Smile I feel more comfortable posting here anyway, MSE is a bit large and I always feel a bit freaked out like other people I know are probably on there.

There is a way around it if you post open and closed tags at the end of the web addy you can still put it on there.

By that I mean [ i ] [ / i ]

Without any of the gaps between them Very Happy

You can also do that to get around the swear filter on some places by putting it in the middle Wink alien

Yes, I used to be a proper geek when I was a kiddly peep

Me too Gilly!

I get worried about posting personal things too, like the FB group link, because it links to so many of our real names. Much prefer this! Very Happy


There's an option in profiles to turn on visitor messages too. This could be useful for confirming successful swaps/sales so people can build up a sort of feedback I guess?

Best Idea yet xoxo, I will start a thread about that using the admin thingamyjig.

I am posting as myself, not as admin because I prefer to be just me. If anyone else has any suggestions please give me a shout because I think this should work best as we want it. Bit of a co-operative not a dictatorship Very Happy sunny

Also, I got twitter stalked by someone who saw fit to create trouble over something I had written, which actually wasn't bad, it was just very matter of fact.

But, my Auntie in law is on MSE and she is very lovely. I will give her the link Very Happy

Hi, and thanks for creating this forum! It's a shame that MSE have instituted such idiotic rules. I used to have my (garden) blog link as my siggy, and they replaced it with something like "signature removed due to breaking the rules"... Sad

Looking forward to great nail polish pics, tips and tricks here!

once we're a bit more sorted can we give the link to other NP addicts? I know a few on facebook who don't use mse, and I guess you bloggers could get newbies here too - just thinking it might get us more swaps and sales cheers

I don't mind putting it on my blog when the admins say go Smile

Since this forum started out of blogging 'disputes' (kinda Laughing ) can we have a thread where everyone posts their blog links so it's all in one tidy place?

Hello, I made it over here. Loads easier to post emoticons I see albino

I did want to resort to my normal forum name of Peony but it seems it's already taken?

Someone posted in the Feedback section, though MSE have fixed that one pretty damned quick.

Ironic, you can post a link to your twitter but not your blog.
