You know, the club that no one attends, just lurks?
I also frequent the DIS. However, I have very little interest in trip planning, even though I try to be as helpful as I can, and the off topics are frequently completely off topic. I'm okay with that, no problem there. I like MC because there's always new stuff going on and it's all about the parks. I think both have their place and like them both.
I like this board, although I go visit the other boards occasionally. But this one had a good quality about it. It spoke Disney better than the others.
I was on LaughingPlace back in the day. Not a bad site, but a bit on the 'uptight' side when expressing your opinions. I like MiceChat because it's more relaxed and open-minded ... for the most part ;)
I lurk at all DL forums. I joined here b/c it was the best way to do research, and this forum has a better track record than others. I am a bonafide rumor chaser when it comes to DLR... I suppose it has become kind of a Hobby??? Either way, if I see it elsewhere, I check here. If I see that there is a certain % of possiblity to a rumor based on what ppl post here, I then move forward.
I joined TPR too, but that's b/c I am a huge themepark nut and I <3 Robb's coaster vids.
I've been a LaughingPlace guy for about 10 years. I've recently started reading and posting here more often as I"m getting ready for my first trip in three years.
I used to be a big user of DisneyForever/Mousetimes. That's where my interest started.
I read the DISboard, but only belong/post here. To me DISboard is like sitting in the dining room eating a formal meal & conversing with my best manners. Micechat is like hanging out with friends in the den, feet up, snacking & 'quaffing' a cold libation.
I really enjoy it here at Micechat! Its part of my morning routine of "checking my stuff." I've never really tried anywhere else, I was lucky enough to find Micechat right off the bat!
I've never been to any other board before. I joined here last year around the time of the gumball rally because my BFF found it. And I've been here ever since. First thing I did when I got my iPhone was to add a link to my screen to MC. lol. I tend to lurk more than post but I LOVE all the information and knowledge on this board! :)
I do appreciate me some Theme Park Review, but MiceChat overall for Disneyland content (and Knott's too) has the best mix of casual and obscure material plus friendly tone. Not all one thing (like trip planning, for example) overwhelming the boards. Very good resource.
ok so after reading this I went to laughing place and disboards and I was SO CONFUSED! MC is very organized and user friendly. And the color scheme and layout is very easy on the eyes.
-- and there are less of those bouncing little emoticon things in everyone's sig. it was giving me a headache!
So thanks MC for being so user friendly AND having such friendly knowledgeable members :)
MiceChat is my Narnia. I WILL NEVER. LEAVE.
