Yerdle Parents! Welcome!!!!

I just want to welcome any parent that is coming here from Yerdle.

We are a parenting community but we do have an established FSOT area (For Sale or Trade Area.)

I just want to link some useful information for you:

FAQ
http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/faq.php

Introductions
http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...isplay.php?f=7

How to Buy and Sell
http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1618250

*FSOT (fsot badges are needed to SELL only not to buy.)


Those coming from Yerdle will have their applications fast tracked for the next three weeks. Post requirements remain (our system requires 30 posts) / but membership requirements will temporarily be lowered. Please put that you are coming from Yerdle in your application and link your Yerdle profile. Your selling permissions will be revoked if there are issues in your first transactions and admins can still block applicants with red flags.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Good question.

Yerdle was a swap site. More info here
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerdle

The group was a swap site with a very loyal/generous community. Many people listed items with a "pay it forward" attitude. Many people who were de-cluttering their lives and following Konmari used the site. Members would get "paid" in virtual dollars (Yerdles) that they would in turn use for things they really did need.

Among the members were clothdiapering parents and parents of young children

Yerdle announced that it was shutting down unexpectedly (people lost all their Yerdles) last night and that has left many people looking for a new community.

Thus the welcomes. Sorry for not posting this sooner. I was running a child back and forth to the PSAT.

It was such a nice group and they were trying to do good but it kind of collapsed last night and I really felt for everyone. I know what it's like to have your community implode.

I was annoyed at first because I lost tons of Yerdles but then I thought of the people that lost their jobs or those that really needed children items and I got over myself.

Anyway, maybe we'll meet some new people and give our own FSOT a boost at the same time.

Thanks for being welcoming. I'm not expecting a big rush since FB world domination is almost compete.

Re: Yerdle Parents! Welcome!!!!

I've been following the Yerdle closure on their FB page.

Unfortunately, it sounds like part of the problem was that people abused their shipping policies and as a reaction to that fees on the site got higher which turned off many users. It seems they've been operating at a loss for a long time.

I know we have lots of rules and sometimes that seems daunting but we don't have fees and we tend to have few outright scammers and if we do we try and warn people immediately.

I see that a couple of people are trying us out but I haven't gotten any questions so maybe they are figuring it out?
