Diane, I am one of your loyal followers on Pinterest... you have such amazingly organised boards!

Whatever did we do before Pinterest... that is the source of most of my inspiration but right here is where the conversations happen

Dianne, I just went to your Pinterest page - My goodness, what a wonderful, organized bunch of inspiration you have gathered together in one place! I don't have a Pinterest page, but I bookmarked your page so I can keep up with all the great things you post.

Add me to the list of people that HATE Facebook! I go there ONLY when one of my kids alerts me that they posted something (the only reason I have an account to begin with). I also only go to Pinterest if I'm looking for something specific or - once in a while - to see what the boards I'm following (like Diane's) have that 's new. HERE on Splitcoast is where I go for any/all free time web browsing...

Yep, I agree...SCS for ideas, conversation, friends...

But there's a lot of great artists out there who aren't here. I get some great inspiration from Pinterest. It's also how I find the occasional blog to follow. My blog has a blog list and basically none of them are on SCS at all. Oh, how I wish they were...but I definitely understand the limited time we all have.

And thanks for all the compliments on my Pinterest!! I think that huge boards are useless. So I divide them down, organize them, get rid of duplicates...well, I might as well just admit it. I'm obsessive about organizing. There. I said it. Just the facts!

Oh my gosh, I'm feeling so much better! I thought I was one of a handful who didn't do FB, now I find I'm not so alone!!! Not that I feel bad about not using FB, doesn't bother me a bit, just have felt like i'm in the minority! I spend enough time on my laptop searching for ideas and learning about using products. Social media would just soak up even more time.....and I'm not making enough cards as it is!!!

I have no Facebook account and never wanted one. And companies pestering me to "Like " them on FB is getting old!

I used to participate in the SU! forum on SCS (any current SU! Demo can join) - and I remember when there was an event coming up and people chose to cover it in a closed group on Facebook instead. I never became active in that FB group, but I imagine it has a lot of participation. Ther was a direct correlation with that FB group starting and the beginning of a decline in numbers participating on the Demo side.

A number of factors contributed - there are less demos also. And there is another SU! closed forum managed by SU! (I never really got active over there either). Oh, and another site started that was SUO.

Anyway, just some early morning musings that I saw a similar trend on the SUO! Demo side of SCS.

For me, I've tried the other forums and I love the organization, and the participants, and the vibe on SCS!

I do love Pinterest for browsing images - wow!

Facebook is very chaotic to me but I do manage through it because loved ones are out there, and there are a few stamping communities I want to connect with.

I hope you have a beautiful today. Mine started beautifully with an early morning visit to SCS, just like most days.

I'm not on Facebook either! Very glad I'm not alone... LOL. SCS is my favorite place on the internet! I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but if I have any questions this is the only place I go. Everyone is always extremely helpful.

I am not a FB girl either. If I had a lot of family that I was close too then I can see why FB would be a lifeline. It's just pretty much DH & I. I see all my friends none of us follow each others social media. When I had a blog some of my friends read it. I know friends come over here to see if I am still living or peek at my Pinterest account. I know who you are, lol.

I agree with Shaz's honest reviews. When I first got back into papercrafting there was just so much stuff. It was all the must have. You had so many people looking down their noses at you if you didn't have the must have. Loved Shaz's bee's knee's comment. Girl, you made me bust up laughing. I come over here and somebody would say that product sucks, lol. Maybe not in those words but they meant the same thing. It was so refreshing. This is the site where I really learned about stamping and the new trends. I also love I got to learn about the classics and how they are updated through the years.

I am grateful for all who comment about products. I can make intelligent decisions about what I purchase and is it right for me and my style of creating.

I love it that there is a Sisterhood feeling here. That is really hard to find nowadays with women being so competitive against each other. I want to be around women who support each other and not shame. I feel this is something that a lot of us women share over here is support.

WOW, Diane, I just popped over to Pinterest to check out your boards, I could spend DAYS just looking through all of them! I love how organized you are, and I agree that boards with too many pins are pretty useless. I'm a very organized person myself, perhaps it's the name

I've barely touched my card supplies since the fall. I haven't been as active here, either, although I've spent more time reading threads than I have making cards.

I haven't lost interest. I've just got other things taking up my time at the moment. I'm really trying to manage my free time better (I spend far too much of it playing Covet Fashion, haha). I also have been really hitting my training hard since my foot surgery in the fall, because I want this race season to be a good one. That takes up a lot of time.

As far as stamping, I'm losing interest in Stamping Up. There are so many other manufacturers making stuff I love, while SU is making some stuff I sorta like. This site is very SU heavy, so I've been following some other blogs a lot as well (Jennifer McGuire is my current favorite).

I also think Pinterest has a lot to do with it. I can find so many cool cards there, just like here. There is no forum there, but the inspiration is incredible.

Thanks. My first race was last weekend, and even though I was sick with a bad cold and had no business racing, I beat my wattage from last year and actually beat a woman who I've never managed to beat before. It was only 4 seconds between us, but that's enough. I hope this means all the hard work I've been putting in is actually getting me somewhere.

Well I am so happy that I am not the only one out there. I bet I am told to go to my FB all of the time and they will friend me. I too am tired of being told that I have to like someone/something/some business on FB. I choose not to do this because of different reasons. It is just me and my DH. He comes from a large family and I from a small one. I have not been on SCS for quite some time and actually miss it. I am a lurker and generally don't post, but if I have a question, I can usually come here and get an answer. So here is to the non-FBers I am glad that I am not in that boat alone.

I love Facebook! The stamping and papercraft groups I am a member of are terrific and I enjoy all the company pages too. Facebook also helps me stay in touch with far away friends and family and network with colleagues. I've even gotten some clients through Facebook (I am self-employed). On top of that I run a page for an actor friend of mine with over 40,000 members and a group for fans of a classic TV show with around 2,000 members.

Lylacfey, so happy to have put a smile on your face, .
I saw this a couple of weeks ago, on International womens day, and it made me think of all my crafting friends, both here and in blogland.

I have read these posts with interest. I am one of those people that does not really enjoy going from site to site. I follow certain blogs, which I have followed for a long time, but my go to has always been SCS. I like what SCS has to offer, I feel like everything I need is here. I guess I feel like I waste time trying to find something elsewhere, I don't want to spend all day on the computer, I want to craft. lol!

This is totally right on.

The answer to getting more improvements is for Everyone to contribute and become a member. It is only $25 a year .
Even if a person doesn't care about mobile apps ( like me) I am sure everyone gets 7 a day in value here

I'm not planning to join Facebook. Or Twitter. Or .... I choose my technology carefully to meet my needs and not to follow fads.
Maybe we should start a group for people who don't want to be on Facebook? LoL

We got one answer this week with the transition from the MISTI FB page to the MISTI forum here on SCS. I was really surprised by the reaction! I would much rather get my stamping info here and other sites, and leave FB for my friends, family, and news. But I can see I am in the minority!

The one thing I did like about the MISTI FB page was all of the photos/videos that were uploaded. Other than the gallery, this site feels very text heavy.

I hope there are some ideas and lessons learned from this experience that SCS can leverage to keep this site fresh, vibrant, and easy to use for mobile/social users. I don't think you could have organized a better focus group if you tried!

The new image uploader has made it very easy to add photos to threads, where it wouldn't always be appropriate to upload them to the gallery.
See post #4 in this thread: New Features/Release Notes by UnderstandBlue at Splitcoaststampers


You need to be in Advanced Reply, then just click on the icon above the text-entry box that looks like the landscape icon on a camera - third in from the right, second row. Then you can upload in several different ways.
The site is also enabled for embedding YouTube videos - click on Share under the video, click on Embed, and then copy and paste the embed code inyo your post here.

For example, I just posted a link in reply to someone who was looking for a particular stamp. It would be really cool if instead of just the link, it also included a thumbnail photo, like FB. While I am a writer and love words, people really gravitate toward visuals.

? Sounds intriguing.

Because of this thread I have been a bit more open minded about trying facebook lately.

I'm curious to see what might be unfolding. I'm not an early adopter per se and I'm totally fine waiting for the non experimental version if there is one. Curious though .

I agree. I don't use FB for stamping info, just friends. It will be nice to get back to my normal feed. There was so many MISTI post, but they were not in order.

SCS is were I come for stamping info

Yes, I can't believe how many email notifications I got yesterday when the MISTI FB announcement was made. I do not like that stuff clogging up my email or FB feed.

However, I am hoping some of the interest/vibrancy of the FB page makes its way here.

A lot of complaints were that SCS is to hard to navigate.

What is so hard about SCS. I just don't understand.

I don't understand that either, but I have been on the site since 2005 and use it exclusively from my laptop, not my phone.

There were also comments about rude people on the site. While there were a few flaming threads years ago, today things could not be more pleasant and helpful. The moderators help maintain a great environment.

I don't find SCS difficult to navigate at all. I think some of the discontent is because people today, and I think especially younger people, are so used to opening a device, like their phone, and seeing everything in "an instant". SCS does take a bit more time, it's not an "instant" experience like FB and everything else in social media these days. I think some people don't have the time, and some don't have the patience, to use a resource like SCS. I'm blessed with the time to do so and I"m grateful for that. You could get into a whole philosophical discussion on this topic, but we'll leave that for another time

i was confused navigating scs originally - it took time to get to know the hierarchy. and to get special permissions for swaps and the demo side and fan club. but it is totally worth it!

You do know, that when the Zombie Apocalypse comes and the internet goes down, "some people" will not know how to survive.

At least I know what life was like before the internet and I will survive

Plus I know my son has a Zombie Survival book in his room some where!

We also have a zombie survival book on the shelf and have discussed where to meet up in case of such an event!

My DS gave us a Zombie Apocalypse survival kit for Christmas. Some of it was pretty funny but a lot of it was pretty useful. I figured I'm all set LOL
