Why don't you go over and see for yourself?

It's not secret or invitation only.

ZilphasHatpin Thu 30-Mar-17 20:14:40

Hahahaha!!!!!!!!!

ZilphasHatpin Thu 30-Mar-17 20:15:17

To answer your question, the words are round the other way. wink

I found it a bit harder to navigate round as I was used to MN format.
There seems to be less off parenting topic stuff. The local section is better.

Mostly though it's fairly similar to here.

Maudlinmaud Thu 30-Mar-17 20:19:20

No idea as I've never been there. But people speak of sparkly tickers and some such.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Thu 30-Mar-17 20:20:12

You can't swear or insult anybody, everybody has tickers and glittery shit everywhere. It's full of 'huns' too.

Maryhadalittlelambstew Thu 30-Mar-17 20:20:26

They seem to begin, end and punctuate every post with the word "hun".

And I think gregs sausage rolls is a swear word over there.

And they never say cunt.

Dontactlikeyouknowme Thu 30-Mar-17 20:22:59

It's not so different to MN really.

MycatsaPirate Thu 30-Mar-17 20:23:10

It's shit.

I got banned for 6 months for telling someone their thinking was incredibly stupid (and it was although I can't remember what it was about now).

You can't swear.

There are eleventy billion posts titled 'am I pregnant?'

Ditto posts about babies

The main board has zero to offer unless it's pregnancy or baby related.

Piercing babies ears is ok to the majority. 'Ur babez, ur rools hun'

It's shit.

Dontactlikeyouknowme Thu 30-Mar-17 20:25:21

MN has very similar threads.

They have those ticker things.

If you mean the baby/pregnancy stuff, it may well have but I can block that topic from appearing.

My dc are 18 and 11. I am way past that stage.

Eminybob Thu 30-Mar-17 20:28:01

There are eleventy billion posts titled 'am I pregnant?'

To be fair there are a fair few over here too

Jaffacakecake1234 Thu 30-Mar-17 20:29:12

It sounds shit to be fair and ive just had a look the format is a mess its so messy the scruffy 'cunts' gringrin

DixieNormas Thu 30-Mar-17 20:29:28

Well i haven't been over for years but there was Lots of hunz, ur bubs ur rools and text speak. No real debate, no swearing and all the sparkely white etc

I also heard from a few people that it could be really disablist and the mods were happy for stuff like that to be left but I didn't hang around long enough to see that for myself

UnicornButtplug Thu 30-Mar-17 20:29:44

Its very glittery and supportive in a different way, like people dob6t actually offer advice, they just agree with you and tell you mums know best.

DixieNormas Thu 30-Mar-17 20:30:45

*shite not white

LuxuryWoman2017 Thu 30-Mar-17 20:32:03

Seems to be a younger demographic on the whole. You can't swear and people are easily offended. You get banned for any reason. I offered a very skint young mum some items to help her out, low monetary value, kind of things you'd offer a vague aqaintance as it's not big deal, thread pulled and I got told off.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Thu 30-Mar-17 20:32:30

I really don't understand why you can go over, have a look and decide for yourself?

Dontactlikeyouknowme Thu 30-Mar-17 20:33:00

It's a bit playground slagging off another website.

Doyouwantabrew Thu 30-Mar-17 20:33:07

Ok calm down dear you don't have to impress us with a cunt and a shit in your first post but it bodes well for the future.

Welcome wink

MycatsaPirate Thu 30-Mar-17 20:33:57

I just had a quick look to remind myself

Active posts are mainly 'am I pregnant' 'is this a positive line' 'photo of my 5 week bump' and my favourite 'guess the gender from my scan pic'

As far as I can remember there is no option to hide the different topics and you have to trawl through pages of threads to find anything worth reading.

And yes, it's very disablist over there. God forbid someone with a disability uses a p&c place because there are no blue badge bays left - cries of 'you should have made him move hun! You've got a baby hun!' With back up from the txting ur bubz ur roolz brigade.

I much prefer it over here with you lot.
