A note from Knot Michelle:
This week, we received several e-mails from The Nest and The Bump members with concerns and feedback about the new board format. We greatly respect our community members opinions and feedback so at your request we have decided to go back to the old message board format.
Tomorrow, May 18, at 10:30 a.m. we’ll be reverting all of The Nest boards as well as The Bump local boards back to the old format. Please note that after the boards switch back anything that you’ve posted on the boards after they’ve been converted to the new format will not appear. This means that anything that you’ve posted since Wednesday, 5/9 at 2 pm on the Nest boards (excluding The Nest local boards) and anything that you’ve posted since Wednesday, 3/2 on The Nest local boards and The Bump local boards will no longer be available.
We will continue to listen to your feedback and will take action quickly. Moving forward, The Bump and The Nest teams will work closely with members within our community before rolling out new features and designs so that we know that they’ll be beneficial to you. Please continue to reach out to me, Nest Dani and Bump Kathleen with feedback and ideas about what would make your experience on the boards better. If you have any questions about what will happen once the boards revert back to the old format, please e-mail us at
I would love to be a fly on the wall at TN hq when they make the switch and they're just sitting there staring at their stats, waiting for their pageviews and posts to go up. And it's fucking crickets. And you know they'll look around and be all "but we don't understand! We gave them what they wanted!"
Smock, I'm sure that's part of it. Plus all the other bitching will be gone as well.
I will say there's a small part of me that is really proud of us (everyone who came over to PB) for not taking their shit anymore. This format is so much better for so many reasons. The main one being that it, well, ya know, works. I'm kind of loving that we made an ass out of them publicly because they NEVER listened to any feedback they ever got. I realize I haven't been around as long as some others but I've never once heard someone say "OMG, you guys, the new format is awe.some" or "I really appreciate how slow the servers are now" whenever they made changes.
