Hi everyone!

So now with all these changes ahead of us I'm thinking of moving to another website. Do you have an experience with EDC or Pancake? Which is more active? Which one have more users of our age?

I've joined Pancake about two months after it started.  I love it there.

I was more active on under my old handle.  but I never felt welcomed.  everyone is very supportive at Pancake.  and if you want competitive, some of us are like that too.  it's a very respectful environment.

there is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or Why or Who you are. you want one and I want one, but there isn't one. it comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. and yet you are all that you have, so you must be Enough. there is no other way.

I'm going to see how things change on MPA before deciding on if I want to move to EDC.

Yes, I had a bout of involuntary crying over the unknown changes to our site recently! :(

No harm in being a member of several sites? I have been a member of Pancake and EDC since they started. I was a member of PrettyThinAgain until it closed down. Same with PostProAna (not erased, but fast asleep) and I am a member at Project Shapeshift and Ana´s Underground Grotto - a site that has been active since 2001. Adults, EDr and Ana by Choice. A rather small site, but special and friendly :)

BUT I can not see the reason for the panic here. The mods will be staying. We do not know for certain  what changes there will be. We know a little and that was actually not bad things at all. But I might have missed something. Now almost everything is open for all to read - who knows if your kids or parents or friends or enemies are reading what you post. Some has posted selfies! Now, from what I read in another tread, more parts of the site will be for members only. I think it would be better to do so with every sections/forums... As it is now, the majority of the ones who are looking at MPA are not members! 

I think it is a good idea to wait and see.
