For Pete's sake. The board was FULL of threads complaining about the new version of 2peas. It wasn't like there was one comment and Ashley wigged out about it. Plenty of people had a chance to use their right to express themselves (and start, yet another, thread about it)before Ashley tired of the complaining and used her right to express herself. The 1st thread of complaints of enough.

Seriously, jumping all over Ashley? Doesn't Ashley have a right to her opinion? You sound like a bunch of middle school girls when you do that.

Play nice.

Maybe everyone should just take a big deep breath.......we are united by our love of this hobby and fellow peas....maybe it's time to let it go.....or send it to NSRB....

Hope to see you soon Cherrypicker!!

Doesn't Ashley have a right to her opinion?


That's the rub, isn't it? Of course she's entitled to her opinion, just as cherrypicker, you, pennyscraps, Noonie and anyone who posts on the board is, until 2peas takes that away.

OP, thanks for the reminder to back up our photos.

Welcome to NSBR....


NO $hit!! And some of you guys are afraid of that side!

Here's my .02 and Lord knows it's not worth much.

If you are going to post on a public message board, be prepared to get your feelings hurt once in a while ~ but in the process, take a minute and stand back and look hard at what the person is saying. Maybe you needed to hear some honesty, maybe not but hairflipping off the board when that happens shows a great deal of immaturity. Again, my opinion.

I don't know if Janet got her feelings hurt or not but I don't think that Biochemipea was necessarily rude, I think she was direct in the presentation. I get that. I'm the queen of direct ~ and Penny can attest to that as she knows me IRL. She was giving her opinion, same as us.

When you cross the line to trying to supress individuals expressing their opinion, then that becomes the issue. We aren't enamored with the new site, others love it. Fine. But don't tell me that I can't complain about it and I won't tell you to stop being a cheerleader either.

Do people really talk to each other this way when they are together in person? Not in my world. People are polite, and have respect for each other's feelings-even when they disagree. Many of the world's problems could be solved by agreeing to disagree.
If we were all in a room together, and somebody said, "the lights in here hurt my eyes, could we turn them down?", no one would call her names, or think her rude for asking. They might disagree-the owner of the room might or might not turn down the lights, but at no time would we ridicule or criticize the person who asked.
I believe the anonymity of the Internet makes people believe it is safe to say whatever they want, regardless of who they are hurting in the process...and that's a shame.

I like:
Janet.
Penny.
Ashley.

I don't like:

How Ashley is being bullied here.

The personal stuff being brought up about Ashley when she did not do that in the original offending post and in fact is absorbing shot after snarky shot with quite a lot of grace.

The idea that if a person (Janet) politely voices a complaint and another person (Ashley) politely disagrees with the complaint voiced, causing the original complainer (Janet) to decide that is enough for her to no longer post here, somehow it is OK to try to make Ashley "pay" for a decision Janet made on her own, as a grownup person.

The perception I have formed from this that perhaps one person (Janet) is of more inherent value than another (Ashley) on this board, whether or not that perception is anything other than in my own head and not the intended result of some of the less than gracious remarks posted here.

That Janet has been and is still being affected by the storm. Hope the new, coming storm doesn't make a bad situation worse for her.

You have been quick and clear to defend Two Peas on EVERY thread post out there about the redesign.


That's the problem I have. I just feel that it's fake.

I've gotten the distinct impression that BCP is trying very hard to get on the design team here (she's been a guest blogger, linking to her projects, etc), so I just see her defense of the redesign as sucking up.

I have absolutely NOT defended 2Peas on every thread here. That is completely false. I think I posted 3-4 times that I liked the new site, and just only the one time to speak against the continued critics and rude comments here about the site

I like scrapbooking.
I like sharing my work, and seeing the work that other Peas do.
I have zero expectation or hope if ever becoming a Garden Girl. I post here because I like it.

And even if I wanted to be a DT member, why the frak do any of you care? None of you know me. I have never done anything here to make any of you not trust me or think I'm false. That is just complete BS, and I find it hurtful.

Exactly. I do not disagree with Penny's bullet points. Yes, we all have the right to like or not like a business website, and to let them know it. We do not have the right to bully another member of this forum into behaving the way you want them to behave or think the way you want them to think. This has happened all too often, and Penny seems to do it quite a bit. I will be vilified for that remark but I am upset at how BCP is being treated. If Penny had listed her bullet points and let it go it would have been fine - but choose instead to lead a personal attach on another member.

Penny has acted little better than a playground bully, and all of you who jumped on board with "I want to be like Penny when I grow up" are just like the mean girls who swarm around the little kid that is getting beat up. Shame on all of you.

While I hesitate to label the behaviour of many Peas involved in this discussion, including Penny, as bullying, I do feel that a reasonable line has been crossed

I did not personally insult or attack Janet. Since I made my post on her thread, there has been on going references to me made in multiple threads here in the GS board. I have not been mentioned until today, after I posted on this thread. The comments made about me have been personal, and insulting. I feel that the behaviour of the Peas "defending" Janet has far, far outweighed my post about the board design discussion.

I have been singled out dozens of times. I have been called names. I have now had my personality and motives for participating in this community questioned.

I may not be the Queen Popular Pea that Janet is (and is, rightfully so, because she is a positive and energetic member here), but I do not deserve this treatment.

I am embarrassed that I am involved in this type of discussion at all.

Still gotta buy another external drive though.

Ashley- I just want to send you a hug and some love. I think you are so talented and such a wonderful contribution to this board. Please know that. You didn't deserve those words.

Janet- so happy to see you back!

Kindness and grace can say SO much more than personal attacks. Your response was pure class.

Guess who's home from work?

Janet, so good to see you on the board!

I am not going to address every comment here. I will say that robust conversation is fabulous, because this board's conversations seem sometimes to be as pale as the new design.

All I will say simply is that my post this morning did not accuse Ashley of running Janet off, nor did it even mention Janet's absence. I stayed out of the aforementioned thread because I saw no need to engage in any of the banter about the site. {I was taking Ashley's advice and not posting.} IMO, Janet's original thread was not negative or critical, and I thought the day the thread happened, as I do to this day, that Ashley's response was unwarranted and harsh and rude. As did many others on that day. As do many others to this day.

I posted today because I have a low tolerance for hypocrisy and I stated this morning and I'll say it again - I felt after Ashley said what she said in the 5-6 posts on the original thread that her coming IN TO THIS THREAD and inquiring about Janet was disingenuous. I pasted Ashley's words in here because some of us know that threads can be altered and controversial posts go poof in the night. And I wanted the record to be perfectly CLEAR that Ashley suggested not posting here by referencing "let your page hits reflect that".

{And if my somehow saying Ashley was rude and is, in my own opinion, presenting herself disingenuously is in and of itself rude, I'll let y'all label that rude. Where I grew up, we called that telling the truth.}

I don't feel like I bully. That is certainly not my intent and I usually try to carefully weigh my words and exercise caution. But I will always go down for defending truth - and our current rights to voice our thoughts. My papa was a cattle farmer and I have known since a child how to spot bullish*t. And when I smell it, I'm gonna' get out my shovel. And clear the air. If I get a little bit on me, I know it'll wash off. As today's conversation proves, it is quite the effective fertilizer.

Hey,,, those Manolo's are mine - hand them over! My hubby will not let me buy a new pair!

Janet so nice to hear from you,, have been very worried about you and glad to see you are still with us after the storm. Keeping you in my thoughts still until you are 100%!!!!

Hard drives-- I have a Seagate and I love it. It is a small portable one, came with a cute little case to store it in, and a stand in case you want to put it on your desktop. You can leave it plugged in to your computer and set it to back-up every so often,, or you can just plug it in and put stuff on it at random, which is what I do. I have had it a couple of years and have had no problems with it. It was reasonably priced and Seagate is one of the oldest in the industry - very reliable.

Done! I had a GREAT work-out at the gym tonight! With my earrings off.

And, I back-up my photos and hard drive daily via Crash Plan. Really takes the guess work out of it.

And sadly, Janet, no idea on an Epson sale. I'm thinking now Black Friday?? I am rationing my last supplies for printing on my Charm! But, I do still have quite a supply of scrap-able photos on hand, never fear.

The perception I have formed from this that perhaps one person (Janet) is of more inherent value than another (Ashley) on this board, whether or not that perception is anything other than in my own head and not the intended result of some of the less than gracious remarks posted here.



Absolutely! Yes, Janet is back now. I haven't seen so much adoration of a pea since Squillen and her cookies on NSBR. That love fest was worse than the "Look at me, Shimelle" posts. Janet was snarky as hell on her response to biochem, and many of you stood around going, "Go Janet! We got your back!"

If you are not in the Janet adoration club you might be able to see how it looks. I don't know Janet, generally don't think of her one way or the other; obviously she is generally a helpful and friendly pea, but she is not more valuable than any other pea here. If any one person stops posting, someone else will step up.

This whole thread looks like the old Pub threads where posters got all up in arms if anyone said something about a frequently published pea, like it was going to help them get published by association.


But, please, back off and let us have OUR opinions about what is going on

I am an avid lurker and do not post much. That said, since I previously posted on this thread I feel the need to comment again.

I am not sure why there is a need by some to stir things up again.
It seems that all involved parties- Janet, Ashley and Penny have moved on, so can't we just follow their lead and do that as well?!?!

Let's get back to scrappy talk instead of bumping this thread up with negativity. Let it die.

Just my 2 cents, not that anyone asked for it.

THere's been many many threads expressing dislike of the new board design over on the NSBR board, apparently opinions are stiffled on the GS board. As for this gem:



I personally think these hundreds and hundreds of posts complaining about the new design are really, really rude. 2Peas did not ask for feedback. Unsolicited criticism is just plain rude. Can you imagine how outraged we would be if we heard about people going to a blog nad posting such harsh and unsolicited comments about the blog design? Or if people here routinely left negative comments about other peoples artwork or layouts?



The owner of a blog/business should care what the users of their website say because if we the users find it hard to see and use, we won't use it. Why have your followers be annoyed everytime they go to your site when you could make it easy for them by not changing a damn thing?
