Hi Pam,

I will be dropping in a little more often now.

I don't know what happened but when you put up walls it's hard to get any fresh air!

Glad to see so many of my friends here! Boy, Judy, you must have ran right over! You found them all before I did!

Pam - don't worry about the 'other' board. There are SO many of us that have been very disillusioned with it lately; you are not alone!

So, is this the area where everyone comes to on cruisemates? I've been around, but I usually go under specific cruise lines.

HI TO EVERYONE!!

Hi ya Lady..
The message boards are broken into categories/folders specifically because there are SO many areas to cover. CruiseMates wanted to make it easier for people find information on specific cruise lines or topics without having to scroll through every post.

The Chit Chat Folder is "for everything else".... the Kukiness, the off topic converstations, the odd ball cruise thoughts.
In Chit Chat anything goes as long as it's fun, and friendly!

Regards,
Kuki

Thanks, Kuki. Glad to be posting in this specific area tonight.

I'm so glad to see so many of the posters from the 'other' board! Hope we can all have great discussions over here without being worried about who is sponsoring the site and whether our posts are going to be deleted immediately.

Sometimes things work out for the best, Pam. It sounds to me like you're wanted on THIS site!

Of course you can have free and open discussions here without the fear of censorship. CruiseMates has a policy about posts that is easy to follow ---

We don't allow blatantly promotional posts like

"Try ______ ______, she's a great travel agent and we all use her"

We don't allow obscenities.

We don't allow posts that are in the nature of a personal attack and not really about cruising.

We do encourage differences of opionion, and open criticism of the cruise industry. For some reason people have the misbelief that a cruise site that is so obviously supported by the cruise industry is afraid to say anything bad about cruising. Let me assure you, that is absolutely not true. Just read our "Cruise Gripes" message board, or our member reviews, you will see we never censor opinions as long as they are stated in a rational manner and in good taste.

Fair 'nough?

By the way... We are all THRILLED to have you here. I feel like calling Pamda right now to ask her to come and thank you all for your kind support of her.

Paul Motter, CruiseMates

Pamda: I only posted a few times on the "other" board, but one of my posts was about shopping in Cartagena. You took the time to answer (and were quite funny too). You mentioned a silk shawl.........I never got back to thank you for the tip. I bought one for $35!! And it was thanks to you. I never was quite comfortable over there, seemed like such a tight community. So sorry about this turn of events. I always clicked on whatever you posted, knowing that it was going to be either informative or funny. Looks like you're being welcomed with open arms. Just wanted to say thanks for all of the advice.

Who is this "Pamda" person everyone is talking about? Must be some kind of bear...... :o)

Sure is nice to have a new den to crawl into, though.

Sorry for the "rogue wave," Pam, but glad to see you at home over here with Paul, Ann, Kuki, and "our core."

Paul lets see how long you want to call the kettle black and leave this post here. Sounds to me like you are rules for removal of posts are exactly what got the cruise addicts site into the mess they are currently in. Some of the posters over there got upset about a travel agent post a week ago and it was removed and then others posted back about wondering why it was removed. So it should be interesting if you can live up to your word and keep everybody happy. I doubt that you can and you will also experience problems. Kuki from this site put it best when he said that there is room out there for many good cruise sites and I will continue to browse through all of them as I have in the past.

I can't believe the internet isn't big enough to support two boards. Pam, you were a marvelous hostess at the Phrolic and have become a good friend. The party was certainly good publicity for the other board and for cruising in general. If Cruisemates co-sponsored or even chipped in, so what. Did it diminish the party or enhance it? No one commented that John was cheap to not send the champagne.

If that is what caused the rift, then it is petty beyond belief. The bulletin board is not family, the people that post are. While it's nice to have a "meeting hall" supplied, the meeting can float.and survive. I have enjoyed CruiseAddicts as I had enjoyed other boards in the past. What's made them enjoyable were the friends we've made, who have followed from place to place.

Wherever we "meet" whether on board or onboard, let's remember what this is all about, enjoying and sharing a piece of our lives with our friends.

Hi Pamda!

Just wanted to say hello and let you know I'm sorry about whatever went on, but glad that you have a new home on the internet. Being the shy, quiet person that you are it's nice that you have a place to meet new friends and start to enjoy life instead of quietly sitting home alone.

I'll try to post some pictures in the "other" boards gallery but not sure if that is PC or if they will disappear..

Thanks for the party.

Doug

Greeneyed monster? Lisa, use your brain. Who kicked this whole thing off over there by her bid for support and sympathy. John did not say a word.
look at a few facts.
none of you know what went on between them, but it did not stop any of you from leaping to conclusions.
Pamda works for cruisemates.
cruisemates tries to buy cruise-addicts.
cruisemates sends booze to a cruise addicts party that is hosted by a cruisemates employee.
do you want a brick wall to fall on you before you figure it out?

Seems that most are happy finding this website that haven't been coming here in the past. Some seem to be upset or accusatory of CM for being nice to one of it's employees. Sorry that you feel that way but knowing the CM people that I do I have no doubt there was no evil intent, just honest appreciation and kindness. CM is a wonderful website and has been growing tremendously and has had some wonderful reviews by national media. We are friendly and helpful and in many cases yes, a family. That is one of the reason why we do Cruisemate Cruises so we can see each other and enjoy each others company in person. The message boards are for everyone and has many specific places to ask, answer and promote questions and I welcome all to borwse then to their hearts content. THIS board the Chit-chat is just that, a place to chit-chat without anything specific. Heck, we have enven had trivia contests here that were great! For LIVE chat many of us fo to the chat room each weeknight at 9PM EDT until 11PM EDT. These chats are 'hosted' and we have a great time. Thanks to a softwareprogram cussing is not allowed and it is safe for anyone to view without being x-rated. We also have the ability, although fortunately very seldom used, to remove people that are mean or hateful or childish and try and upset the chat. What can I say, great features, great news, great message boards, reviews, chat, family, GREAT WEBSITE!
