    Hi all. Im pretty new to the whole travel game and have recently gotten into Flyertalk. I'm a new Starwood Plat and most of my posts are in property master threads... I also really like MP though, and just don't know where I should post! I don't want to post the same things in two places, as that seems silly. Help!

    PS I really hope MP gets an iPhone app soon!

    Just start posting in the most likely spots, do not worry about redundant content now. Soon we will mature into our own special place, it is already beginning.

    Welcome to MP.

    Welcome! You may surprise yourself and end up posting in totally different places on MP than on FT. Just take your time and see what appeals to you. And please give yourself permission to have fun here.

    oops. I meant to quote Punki saying this:
    And somehow I quoted you instead. Ah well, either way it's a good excuse to make fun of Dov. :D

    Having all the same information in two places is much better than one!

    Right?

    ummm

    Over time, people may get tired of posting on two sites and will choose one over the other. Hopefully, it'll be the site that's friendlier and more open to posting. :)

    You never know what you are going to find on here so post and ask questions. I even found someone that went to Beijing around the same dates I was there, and later to Shanghai at almost the same time as well. Great minds thinking alike. Some have commented on hotels I have stayed in, others have visited places I want to go and posted their photos as a taste of what to expect there. It is easy to have a lot of fun here :)

    If you build it, they will come, so whichever site you like, help build it.

    And if you have unlimited time and like both sites, help build both of them :D

    I switch back and forth all day.

    So instead of living just on FT I'm living on FT and MP.

    I kind of view MP as my vacation home.

    I'm still getting the feel of how the board works, in fact I just figured out how to multi-quote. :confused:


    I like that analogy. :)

    More is moar! :D

    New here too but should be fairly easy to poke around and find the right areas to post on. Will just take some time.

    Didn't we meet you at the RWT/Do in ATL?

    Check out the "How do I use this fancy new forum?" thread for starters, that will help get you acclimated.

  25. I'm fairly new to FT, and brand new to MP myself. I didn't use FT for long, as valuable as the information I found on there was, there was also so much attitude, and so many members who seemed to be on a mission to get on others' case about the tiniest things, I burned out quickly. I also never wanted to post on the OTHER site, not that I cared about the oppinions of judgemental fools, but I don't have enough time in my day to muck through the rantings and ravings of immature keyboard warriors to see if somebody had a genuine responce to any questions or comments I had. I'm looking forward to see how MP matures.
