Yes, VERY sad. It seems such a big deal is being made over the sharing of information. It's not like it was being broadcast to the whole board. Digi scrappers make up a small subset of a subset of a subset of a subset of this site. And now we're being driven away. It's really too bad, but it is what it is.

Most of the moderators are mainly traditional scrappers - they have their wish - the Digiscrappers are leaving them alone. I am so sad to leave but I hope that you will all stay in touch. I am going to www.mousescrappers.com to see if we can start to build a new home there.

I understand about the middle ground and appreciate that the admins are trying to find it. I think most are upset because it came with little warning.

I think posting credits that way would work. But the whole purpose of the Post your Digital Links Thread was for just that- to post LINKS to share Disney related digital scrapbooking items with other digital scrappers, freebies or not. It made it easier to locate Disney digital stuff online.

well I'm sorry you feel that way but it has nothing to do with traditional scrappers versus digi scrappers.

It just seems y'all have taken the advertising rule over the top here. Just my humble opinion. Now I'm off to find some place where sharing isn't so restictive...
I agree. It is way over the top. Posting about a sale at a certain site is no different than posting about a Cricut product on sale at AC Moore or Hobby Lobby. Other than one is a physical store and one is a digital store.

I agree. This was where I first got introduced to digital scrapping and learned so much from those here. I found a lot of great stuff through the threads here when I first started. It so sad that the digiscrappers are being treated this way.

I also agree with you. This is no longer a place were dgiscrappers are welcome. So sad. I definitely will be going somewhere else since it is clear we are no longer welcome here.

the links expanded to much more then that though. We are working on an index that will be stuck to the top of the scrapbooking forum or added to the first post of the digi FAQ thread that will be broken down into categories including disney-ish, baby, wedding, travel, etc.

I'm so totally bummed about this. I was annoyed when fridge swaps and photopass shares were banned, but I understood why. I can't get on board with the decision to ban promoting awesome digital stores and freebies. I have been a DIS-er for a long time now, but you'll be seeing a lot less of me now. This is so upsetting. The DIS was my digi-scrapping home. I always felt more comfortable here than on the other digi sites. We were such a fun little group of Disney digi fans! I hope we can make our new home just as (well, make that much MORE) welcoming! Hope to see everyone over there soon!

wow. I have never felt that paper scrappers didn't welcome the digi scrappers or that the digi scrappers didn't welcome the paper scrappers. sure there have been issues (like the digi challenges that you have to make disney related) but everyone was happy sharing information.

I do think that the board as it has grown has changed, it doesn't seem as close knit as it used to, it's still friendly but in more of an "aquaintance" way vs an "I got your back" way. it will only get worse if everyone starts pointing fingers and saying, oh the digi scrappers said this or the paper scrappers said that. y'all are all STILL scrappers and it doesn't matter how you do it. it's still the same end product.

could the rules have been presented in a better way, absolutely. now that they are out there again, maybe they will be enforced across the board and not just single out the scrappers (which is my gripe with them more than anything else).

that's all. going back to 2peas myself. Just thought it was getting a little uglier over here than it really needed to be.

I so agree!

Fridge swaps. Done.
Photopass share. Done.
Stroller swaps. Over.
Digital stores/freebies. Over

What's next? I can't recommend a pair of comfortable shoes to wear in the parks??? What about all the Crocs talk and posting of sales/info? Where does this end??? Let me guess, I won't be able to share a packing list because it has moleskin on it??? Or I can't recommend bringing Crystal Light in packets.

Think about it. Where does it end?

I can tell you one thing, I booked my trip in 9 days with DU. My March cruise is booked with DU. I think it is time to 100% completely stop supporting ANYTHING on this site if that's the way its going to be. Ridiculous.


NEVER did I think this board would come to this.

Sad indeed.


Where will our new home be?

Can one of the mods please respond to my question in this thread? I'm just trying to understand the new rules.

ETA -- The same question would apply to this thread, this thread, and this thread....
