Hey ladies in waiting! In light of right time''s post on the ladies in waiting list, I was thinking it really is time to update the list (something I mentioned a while back, as she posted in her message)

Welcome to the new ladies on the board! I hope your stay is short and sweet!


In ~Rae''s post she mentioned she had not be on the board in ages, and in fact is no longer a LIW (from the smiley face, I take that this is a good thing...
) But her post has me curious as to how many others are on the list and are no longer a LIW? I have been a registered member since last February, but didn''t add my name to the list until August. There are tons of names I have never heard of or seen post.






I believe on the list it says you will be removed in 6 months if you don''t post? I''m sure a lot of the names have not posted in over 6 months. It''s not that I want to drastically move up the list by removing people, I just would like to see it updated a bit. I think the list should be for those actively seeking and giving support, and who are in a serious relationship waiting for a proposal. As an active member, I''d like to look at the list and recognize most of the names on there. Just my 2 cents.


Anyone agree? Disagree?



Also, it seems that our list keeper isn''t around too much lately- if she doesn''t mind maybe Alexis would like to hand over the job to someone who posts more often. I don''t think I could do a great job since I''ll be traveling for work a lot, but maybe there is someone else interested?

The list keepers try to clean out people who haven''t posted for six months or more every beginning of the month. Alexis has been doing a great job so far... If she wants to hand over the reigns, she will.

I don't think the list has been "cleaned out" since I started posting, and definitely not at the first of every month. (for example ~Rae's post..) Someone correct me if I'm wrong however. I'd honestly just like to see a "real" list and know how many people actually waiting for proposal and particpating regularly there are on the board. I'm at number 60, I think, but I know there are lots of people above me that have not posted in the year I have been reading.

I don't want the job as keeper of the list... I'm far too unorganized
. I'm not criticizing anyone of her job... just pointing out something I'd like to see. If ~Alexis wants to continue being the keeper of the list, then I hope she can update the list soon. But there may be a current LIW who would want to take over if the job were open.

I agree that it needs to be cleaned out. I have been looking at the site for almost 8 mths and been on it for about 4 mths and most of the names I have not seen post; however, that does not mean they have not been actively looking at pricescope completely. I know I commonly post in other areas; however, I regularly read the post on this forum.

Has BlueRoses every received her ring? I know she has the cutest proposal with sharpers!

i am in TOTAL agreement. The list is very outdated with many people who haven''t posted since I''ve been here. They should be removed for inactivity. Make it 9mo''s if 6 mo''s seems harsh, but there should be some consistency. And I''m also curious about Blueroses, there was a huge flurry of posts and then she asked to be made honorary #1 and then completely disappeared. I''m not sure if this is a good or bad sign, but surely she checks in from time to time, she was such a major prescence on this board (at least it seems to be the case from what I read...i think she predated me a bit).

Anyway, I agree with the other posters...let''s clean the list up! Alexis has done a great job, but she is also still on the list? I''m not trying to be mean..but i think it kind of makes no sense to have a list that isn''t a real list. i hope to not have offended anyone!!

I''d like to be added to the list. If I had time to take it over I would, but I can''t do that right now. Sorry!

I am in the minority here...

No!!! Don''t clean the list! I don''t wnat to get to one-digit numbers and then I will really freak out!
hahaha....

I''m sure Alexis is just busy right now and may not have time to update it. If she feels she doesn''t want to do this anymore she''ll let us know. Myabe you guys can help her out by doing some research and posting it so that the clean up is easier for her.

I think I posted these a while back when Alexis seemed to be going through a rough time. I''m not sure if she saw it though, but it''s a start!


Here is what I noticed:

15. GGLW hasn''t posted since April

24. Green Sparkle hasn''t posted since May

25. celalia hasn''t posted since march

26. sweetcat hasn''t posted since march

27. looks like chickflick got married this summer

34. miumi hasn''t posted since april-think she got engaged

there are some others who i can''t find-metaphor85 and blueeyes81, plus a bunch of others

as someone who doesn't even look at the list, but randomly clicked on this thread...my two cents is that the keeper of the list should be someone who is actually on the list and can update it regularly. otherwise what's the point of having a list?

i don't know the last time alexis posted, but if someone wants to volunteer for cleaning the list up while she is gone...you can probably do that and email it to pricescope for an update in the meantime. interim plan.

I''m still waiting so please don''t take me off the list. Although I too think I''ll freak out if I''m in the single digits (not likely).

Mara always has the best advice! I can work on going through the list (procrastinating big time!) and will send it to pricescope.

haha. after i read this thread, i figured i''d go check at what # i was at.. (last i recalled i think i was 10) and i am now #7!!!
so, it leads me to believe that this list is still somewhat active- i think it just depends how people announce their engagement.

but after seeing the last "revamp" that shinythings posted- wellllll. I HOPE HOPE HOPE that it is not reflecting accurate- #4?
WHAT?

haha.

heheeh.

i don''t follow that much but i think pearberry is already engaged. i met her this summer at a GTG and she had an engagement ring from Tiffany''s.

also didn''t jenstone (pancake rabbit avatar) get engaged recently too?

I did some research and you asked to be added to the list on October 30th, in the post right after ShinyThings. So.... you will be number 66!

Can we email pricescope and make this change??

you can try right time-they said something about not posting my updated list because they promised anchor would be in charge and wanted to check with her first, which doesn''t seem to make sense! i assume they meant anchor31, who was in charge before sk8rjen!

oh well.

What? That makes no sense! I thought ~Alexis was in charge?

Anyway, if we ever get to use your updated list, then maybe we can get her added.
Thanks again for your work on this. I think it''s interesting to see who is really here.
