No one said anything about not liking them (as I stated its better than reading a book or mag)...I was just stating that they always get more comments and views than the ones where people are asking for help! This is a cake decorating forum but it seems that more people are interested in the drama than cake decorating. I know we all come here to vent sometimes (I have on more than one occasion) and when we post threads it is with the hopes that we can get some positive comments or feedback or even if someone giving us advice whether we like it or not...but there is always one person who sets off the drama. I understand that the forums might be boring without drama but this site wasn't created for drama it was created for cake decorating...Now correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems that the majority of the threads get ugly real quick. Like I said my honest opinion. The thread about the "stop payment for wedding cake"...I felt bad for the lady and then to find out it was a lie just really makes me wonder if this site is about cake or drama! Is this site/forum so boring that people have to make up these petty stories just to get a rise out of people. I guess I'll never understand why people do the things they do.

I don't think you can take 3 or 4 threads over the past few days/weeks and make a blanket statement like that about this site. There are hundreds of non-drama threads running that are cake related and informational.

This is the 2nd time today that I've felt the need to come in and "defend" CC and point out the obvious ..... a bad apple here and there does not a bad site make! Let's not lose sight of all of the good that is shared here!

when you are on a page, look in your browser and see what the last number is in the page address. Usually each pages changes that number by 15. For example (and I did this just the other day), the address ended in 215. I wanted to jump ahead so I erased the 215 and entered 300 (making sure the number ends in something divisible by 15). I was a bit short so I changed the 300 to 345 (moved me up 3 pages 15 x 3 = 45).



Genius question and absolutely marvelous answer!!!! I have needed to know that many times in the past and just never thought to do the obvious, ASK!

Thanks!

I agree with Debi! Yes, I've seen people get eaten alive on some of the threads, myself included yesterday... LOL However, it happens. Too many differences of opinion, but in the end, it's a great and informative website. I really respect a lot of people on here.

i am totally flabbergasted (is that the word?)a hoax?!?! yes it creates doubt about who we are, real or looking to create drama and stir the sh*t-but i even though the thread gave me a migraine i still had to read what's happening. i love this site and the people on it (even those who have multiple personalities) what else would i spend my remaining time doing (housework? sleeping? bah!) lol

Indydebi...i'm not just referring to the 3 or 4 posts over the past few days/weeks..i'm talking about the ones that I've read that had to be locked or deleted over the past few months. Of course ur not going to remember every single one of them but u and I both know that there are more than just those 3 or 4 you think i'm referring to. A few months ago I posted something because I was venting about a certain situation and then it had gotten so ugly that it was deleted..but the bad thing about it is that it wasn't me (the person who started the thread) who was going at it with another person it was other people taking jabs at each other. It almost makes me scared to come here and vent to my cake buddies because I don't want it turning into a heated argument. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels this way...but i stand by what i said, these threads that start out so innocent become ugly. We can all have opinions and put our .02 in but do we have to be so mean about it? Its like sometimes u have to put in one of those darn winking emoticons so that people can determine whether your joking or just being a plain bitch about it!

I'll tell you one thing though...this site and the people here has made me grow thicker skin icon_lol.gif I've seen people leave because they felt that the environment here was a little hostile and of course you had some folks who wished them well and tried to talk them out of it and then u had some who gave them a hard time. Don't get me wrong there are alot of really supportive people here some that will tell u want u want to here and some that tell u what u need to hear whether u like it or not icon_wink.gif Overall the site is amazing...but i just hope that the drama can be kept to a minimum...lets say like 1 drama post a month icon_lol.gif Just wishful thinking thumbs_up.gif

wow have we gotten off topic! I too am bothered by all the suspicion that goes on whenever something is posted........I thought this site was to help people and offer advice. I am not discouraged and do appreciate all the advice that I have gotten!!!! Its true that anytime you deal w forums there is always going to be drama and people making things up-I found that out on a forum geared towards moms that I frequented when I was pregnant-I finally did get annoyed and stopped visiting it!

KKC,

I have been on the CC forums a long time and generally don't see drama like this post. Indydebi is right in that you are viewing a minority of these types of threads. Just browse "Cake Decorating" or "Cookies" directories, or the tutorials to see all the time and effort people generally put into helping one another. I would say there there is A) 70% encouragement and help, advise, good stuff, etc... B) 20% drama about collecting payment, what to do, how to handle a bridezilla and c) 10% complaints, arguments and newbies with drama issues.

Remember, we are heading into "cake season". At Christmastime this past year 2008, there was nothing to be found but advice on family cakes, yule logs, tutorials, etc..

Just go with the ebb and flow of CC. Its a GREAT place and a lot less snarky than so many other forums. I can name a few, but that would be adding to the drama. Suffice-it-to-say, CC is generally not about drama between decorators, it is a place to hear and be heard and encouraged, ok? icon_smile.gif


*big vanilla buttercream hugs for you* Sorry if I got you all sticky!

Just wanted to add that you can actually put any # at the end and it will move you backward or forward (depending on if you want to go back some pages or forward but to be at the top of the page each time it must be divisible by 15). So if your feeling lazy and don't want to figure out what 88 *15 is you can just guestimate (??).

Ah -- technological wizardry. I wouldn't have thought of that. Thank you.
