Damn!! So sorry this has happened to you! Haters gonna hate, and they try to take down others that are doing a good thing to try and make themselves look better. Just keep doing you, and continuing to provide great feedback and transparency. :heart:

I don’t understand why folks think they have to yuck someone else’s yum. For what it’s worth, I am enjoying my Ribblr experience. Thank you for providing an alternative crafting site/app.

Sadly I have seen some comments on Facebook from one person in particular. This is just too darned bad. Feel badly for you. This is a great place, very nice and peaceful as crafting should be. Please keep up the good work. It feels good to be here and these days, in USA, that is saying a great deal.

Oh my, that’s tough ! I haven’t seen any of this on fb nor ig or anywhere else.
Unfortunately these things happen a lot on social media, but clearly people don’t know what they’re talking about and harm others. Whether they intended to or not. :frowning:

Well, I love this platform and I’m glad I joined ! I hope it will grow and bring more crafting pleasure to all of us !
Just continue where you left of, team Ribblr, and be confident. You’ve created a wonderful platform for all of us to enjoy ! :heart: :muscle:t2:

I have been enjoying your platform so much that I have placed my community platform on hold (I still host my open Zoom rooms though.)
You guys are doing great an shall be successful in this endeavor/ labour of love.
Like any new platform there will be refinement over time and a few growing pains as is normal so don’t let it get to you. As far as misinformation etc… there are always people that feel the need to make others look bad in order for them to feel better about themselves.

Where on earth do people get notions like this from?!
I’ve had nothing but good experiences in using Ribblr and interacting with the build team and other users. I hope the Ribblr trajectory keeps growing.

I personally have not seen the misinformation, but I don’t doubt that it’s there for a second. If I were to speculate (and that’s all this is) it’s probably being generated in part by another “R” organization. And I second WyldePlumb in my admiration of you taking the high road and not pointing fingers, just being open and transparent, and working to make this platform the best it can be. It doesn’t have all the bells, whistles, and followers as another place does (YET!) but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Keep on doing what you’re doing, and good will keep flowing your way!

No worries here. Everyone seems to have to go through some icky stuff, It usually starts from those that are nervous about something new, but they haven’t really looked into it. I have had nothing but a great experience on Ribblr.
