I'm sorry you feel that Starz and I am posting on both forums so I do not feel I separating myself from the rest of the members.

I'm sorry that you don't feel welcome, Starz.  It's not anyone's intentions to make anybody feel unwelcome.  This has been here for 2 1/2 years, and posters have been posting here from that time up to last season.  Everyone has always been welcome to post here, and on any thread.  There are some who prefer this format.  It's really not fair to ask them to give up something they have been use to for the last couple of years.  Especially, when it's not causing anyone harm.

I too am sorry you feel that way, Starz, but I honestly cannot imagine why you would feel unwelcome.  No one has been anything other than friendly and polite. 

I suppose you could say we are 'separating' ourselves, but it has nothing to do with being elitist or unfriendly.  Many of us either did not go to the ABC Board at all or went infrequently, in large part because we found it just too overwhelming and chaotic.

So for at least a season some of us wish to have our little forum on a back page until we see how things shake out in the other forum.  I doubt anyone from the other forum will come here and start tons of topics unless it is their intent to be obnoxious.  And anyone who does find us is welcome to join us for some friendly and pleasant conversation.  No one has to choose - at least we won't make them.  Many of us will be keeping an eye on the other forum to see how it shakes out.  At some point it would be preferable to merge the two.  But for now no one is being forced to conform to a way of doing things that they find unpalatable.

You can post in either or both or neither - whatever suits you.  You are always welcome.  Smile

SLA44 - You are correct.  ABC has now confirmed Alexa and Carlos VegaPena as contestants as well as Chaka Khan.  I don't really know anything about the first two except that she was in the Spy Kids movies, I think. I love Chaka Khan as a singer - I hope she's got some moves even though she's now in the 'older lady' category.

Starz wrote:I respect your choice to do whatever you want - however - I am going to make 2 comments and then never mention anything about this thread again.

1. You are separating yourselves from the rest of the members. That appears to be unfriendly and elitist. Right now, I do not feel welcome here.

2. People will find this thread and create extra threads just like on the other topics defeating your intentions.
I take it as a format preference.  In the DWTS season 21 forum on the front page, people can create new topics like the old ABC board.  Here people can choose to stay in one thread, such as "Week Two" and put all topics related to week two into this one thread.  It might be a personality issue.  Some people love to have many topics in a forum while others find it confusing to have so many topics and prefer to concentrate the conversation in one place.  (I recall there was a group on the old ABC board who always created a special thread every season and kept all their conversations in that thread.)

In the Bachelor in Paradise forum, for instance, we have both: Weekly threads on top for people who like to keep things in one place, and various topics under the weekly threads created by those who love the old ABC board format.  My hope is to keep both types of posters happy, whichever format they choose.

Thanks for that, SLA.  The last I had read Len would be back a couple of times as a guest, and they would have guest judges sometimes.  But it did not sound like it would be a guest judge every single week, although I could have gotten the wrong impression.

You're welcome LM65 - I thought it might helpful because I sure don't know who some of these are they are bringing on as the stars.  Actually I don't know who most of them are.  I just hope they don't bring on another guest judge like that Abby thing they had on in the season with Maks and Meryl.  Boy I thought she was a real piece of work!   Rolling Eyes

I don't think the judges or Tom like Abby.  Hopefully, they won't be making that mistake again.

Abby Miller is obnoxious.  Did you ever watch her program "Dance Moms" I think it is called.  No kid of mine would be enrolled in any of her classes.  What a b****.

I never did watch her program, not even one episode, Newto.  I read too many things about her on the internet, and didn't want to waste my time.  From what I saw the time she was a guest judge, I knew I made the right decision.  Did you watch her show?

I watched a few episodes at the beginning.  She's an egocentric bitch, who heaps on threats and emotional abuse.

If these kids can hold up under it, they are given every opportunity to rise in the world of dance.  She takes them all over the country for competitions and reviews.

I see her star student, Maddie, is in a commercial.  Can't think of which it is because I mostly ffwd.

That being said, I wouldn't subject a child to her brand of teaching.

I wouldn't either, Singly.  Even some of the DWTS pros have criticized her teaching methods.  I sure do agree with your last sentence.

I am not a huge fan of Peta's, but I wouldn't wish that kind of injury on anyone, let alone a dancer.  That's a shame.  I had not heard that.  I also did not know that she and Maks had gotten back together.

Thanks for putting this up LM65.  I had no idea who that Kim woman was with the huge blond mop on her head - I thought she probably had to be in one the housewives shows which I do not watch.  One thing I would like to correct though is that Alek Skarlatos is an OREGON National Guardsman not CA - he grew up with his two friends in CA but has been a resident of Oregon for some time now and serves our country through the Oregon National Guard.  Us Oregonians are very proud of him and his two friends.

Thanks LM65 for posting the list.  It's really a bummer to get Louie and Anna back, and then pair them with two celebrities that will probably be the first two to get the boot. HA  I may use all my votes on Gary just to try to keep Anna on longer.

Gary Busey is kind of a wild card.  I expect him to be awful, but he could turn out to be another Tommy Chong too.  That would be nice since we've waited so long to see Anna again.
