Yes, it seems to be normal now - but can I ask why it took sicne Thursday to get this fixed? I am thinking of advertising here, but I am not so sure now that I know that a problem like this took 2 days to fix!

Those are just RUMORS about the contest thing.

But, I know no matter what I (or anyone) says, certain people still wouldnt believe us.

If the rumors WERE true, it wouldnt take a genius to figure out how many posts were created by that ONE thread. If the thread disapeared THAT would be fishy, but the thread is still there

If it happens again it wont take that long. I will make sure of it. (as long as I am not away at the time)

I will also talk to the regular mods and instruct them on what to do if/when it happens again.

If this stays the norm I'm out of here. I buy and sell alot on here. I won't install anything to make it easier though. I'll just be out 100%. bummer b/c I don't hate the FSOT section here, but I have little patience.

In what way can this be considered the norm when it is a single incident? We will definitely work to having a quicker response for possible future hiccups.

Re: Where is Admin?!?!?

a few questions...

i have only been here a few months, and lee - you claim that the ads are no different. that is not true. when i started posting on here, i only ever saw WAHM ads or the diaper store ads. now there are more and more ads that have NOTHING to do with cloth diapers and are NOT WAHM sites. ex: how to lose weight, etc.


second - sam, you said that there has been talk about "we" will have to pay to have the ads turned off? did you mean lee would have to pay extra to have the ads turned off? or each member will have the option to pay?
cause if it is if each member will have to pay to use this board to have the ads turned off, you will lose most if not ALL of your members.


third - about the rumors with the contest. it was said that if they were true - that post would have been deleted. that is NOT true. sorry. but as long as that post is still on this board, it shows in the numbers at the end of the month on the post count.

i used to own a message board. i used to have to delete the HUGE threads like that because it would make the board run slower.
and yes, my board was actually HUGE, a moms board.

i was also wondering why people were switching and downloading firefox. that is what i run on all the time and i couldn't get the board to work for the past few days either. not till this morning was it running right for me. and no, i don't have dial-up.



a few more questions -
i think it is only fair to post this info and let the members know for sure what is really going on.
who is the server this board is ran on.
who is the host company
how much do you pay per month
how many GB does DS pull a month

Unfortunately I am guessing this will be ignored like so many other threads asking questions. I have noticed if the answers wont be what we want to hear a certain person will not even answer.

Off to go check out DT now that this thread reminded me of all the ICK!

The reason for this is less WAHMs are choosing to run banner ads. They are choosing to become forum sponsors instead. So taking their banner out of rotation, and adding it into the forum sponsors means less WAHM banner ads across the top.

It would be COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. Users could still use the site free.

If it will stop all the rumors I will delete the thread.

I use firefox as well. As I said in a previous thread, I would have 5 pages load just fine and then 1 or 2 run slow. With how much I was here, I wasnt really having any problems with how much I was here over the last few days.

I dont know all of the answers to those questions. WHAT I do know I will answer. I know that when the board was moved over to the new board/server (April or so of last year). Jo was paying 160$ a month to host DS. For a few months she was short and put the excess on her CC. Which is when the google ads started being used. I also know that since then we have moved to servers with more resources (which means more money) at least a few times. The latest server upgrade was a HUGE one. When we were on the old board (and we were a lot smaller) Jo used a shared server and it was A LOT cheaper.

I DO know that a board with 14,000+ members (almost 5600 of those active members) will take a BUNCH more resources than a board with 1000 members.


Beyond that, is it really your business? No one is forced to pay anything to use the board. It is FREE to use it. People can choose to advertise, but it is a CHOICE. You dont go to a WAHM and say "Hi, I would like to know how much you pay for a yard of fabric, how much fabric it takes to make a diaper, how long it takes you to make it, how about thread? How much thread does it take you to make a diaper?" If you did that the WAHM would tell you its none of your business.
