      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Please Do Not Bump Up or Report Old Threads/Posts! - Revised

1 post in this topic

Please do not bump up/bring to the front/post in old conversation threads, say, more than 3 months old, unless you're the OP (opening poster) . Often, the OP hasn't been here in a while or, if they are, finds it disconcerting to have their old thread suddenly appear again. Also, there are many more recent threads that need attention. If a thread is bumped up inappropriately, it will most often be locked.

Exception: Threads pinned (thumb tack icon at left of title) to the front of the forum (unless locked like this one)

Please also do not report posts that are more than, say, 1 month old. Often, a decision has already been made about them, according to the GP.com guidelines:


Please note, too, the guidelines were posted in 2015, and we moderators don't edit/delete posts in older threads retroactively.

And again, there are more recent posts that need attention.
