i have also just noticed that the Pushchairs section no longer requires a CAT registration to post. I logged out and this was missing in the pushchairs section but was still present in the childrens clothes section.
Does this mean that you are now allowing anyone to post in the pushchairs for sale section? I thought the idea was for people posting in buy & sell to be registered in an attempt to stop people being ripped off by those who sign up but don't register fully?
While we're on the subject though, why isn't there a place for pushchair talk? I know there is the thread in Products but it's almost impossible to drop in and out of that or get an answer to a question. Could we have a special pushchair home please? <---winning smile
It just moves very quickly and if someone doesn't see your message before eeveryone else posts then the moment has gone. I lurk there and enjoy reading the posts but a lot of it is very personal to the group there and it's hard to butt in.
This really really isn't a dig at anyone there, honestly. I'm just wondering if there is a different way to do it.
yes but thats the same situation with any thread on MN? For instance there was a thread in products the other day asking about a pushchair and I felt that due to some of the comments on there about 'huns' i could'nt and would'nt post as I am not part of that group of MN's
Helen or anyone in MNHQ I would really appreciate it if my concerns about Justines comment could be answered please.
I have been a long time lurker on MN and even when registered the only place i really felt comfortable in posting was the for sale section and the pushchair threads, mainly due to the lovely ladies that are based there.
I have been trying to make a real effort in posting elsewhere but feel like there is this constant judgement of being a pram hun etc.
To me that earlier comment has basically said that I am neither wanted nor good enough to be part of MN. If that is the case refund my CAT subscription and I will be on my way. Thanks
Jiggly, I understand where you are coming from, and I too don't like it wen people take the piss over 'pram huns', some MNers get genuinly nasty with it! But I think Justine was just joking and doubt she meant to cause offense.
But it isn't nice to be labled something derogitorty like us pushchair , erm... enthusiasts are!
BUT this is a long running issue on here. I think comments like that only add to the sense that anyone associated with that part of MN is somehow not good enough to mingle with the proper members and MNHQ agree
I'm sure you're right Jiggly but it's such a shame if that's the case. Like I said, I read the pushchair thread and am familiar with names on there now but it wouldn't occur to me to point and yell 'pram hun' if I 'saw' you out and about on MN. It's pretty sad if people do that. Do chicken keepers and card makers get the same treatment? It's very odd. I'm jealous of you all being able to swap around pushchairs like you do so I like reading the exploits
And I apologise if my earlier posts here reinforced that feeling. It wasn't my intention, honestly
