Start chatting right here!
Rebecca asked me to set up "one place where we can all gather and talk", so that is what I am doing with this board. Once people start coming on over to this forum, you are free to chat here, if you want. I hope this isn't confusing because we also have separate boards for New Hosts Forum, Anecdotes and Stories of Hosting, and AIrbnb Products and Updates. But just in case people really want ONE clear place to go, I've set this space up and highlighted it with a colorful border, so let's see if that helps.
And by the way if you like, you can add to your unique style on this board by using any font you like -- (though others will only be able to see a certain font if they have it installed on their computer) see this post about how to use other fonts on these forums:

Okay Linda, glad it works for you-- I am leaving the option open for now, for folks to create new threads on this board (each section where threads are organized is a board) but if people would rather that we only actually have ONE thread here, we can do that too.
Deborah, I think this will work fine for those who loves to interact and chat and oh by the way, my guests has accepted my resolution about the urine issues in my brand new mattress and the rocking chair sofa. So, I will be busy working at the house to get the Urine smell out..ugh!

In order to promote people chatting in one place on this forum, I've removed the "shoutbox", which I think was not that helpful anyhow, as it only allows people to write one sentence at a time. Some people were using it to ask complicated questions that can't be answered in one sentence, and since posts on the shoutbox disappear after a few new posts come in, that was never a place to really get into any content. Best to say "hi" here on this board where you can write as much as you like and have your profile pic next to your post.
Sorry for the appearance of the advertisement on this forum -- that shouldn't be there since I paid to keep the site ad free. The ProBoards staff is looking into what caused that problem and hopefully it will be corrected quickly. I hate ads!
Update: they fixed the problem and I'm happy to report the ads were promptly removed!
I have to admit I am addicted to reading random chat I found on the old airbnb forum on anecdotes and stories between a few hosts like CC, Jeanette, Sharon and a bunch of those peeps. It takes out the stress of hosting or dealing with my life problems, both the real and the imaginary ones.
Helga, Cheyenne,Nic &Rach, excuse me for tagging and calling you over here. I just thought it would be nice to hear from you here as well from time to time.
Hi Salvia, Thanks for tagging me and sorry I wasn't able to reply right away, I'm not surprise of how Flipkey, VRBO, Homeaway and other flatporms, treatq their hosts partners. These companies has one goal in their business and that is all about money, numbers, productions, and results, and to them if your listing is not an active revenue/commission earner then yes they will shut your listing down and they will focus more on other listings that are high in commission/revenue generated. I am just so happy with Airbnb, I have no complaints and I believe we are treated fairly as their business partners, I don't know about other hosts that has many complaints or issues with Airbnb. But for me,my myself, I'd say it has been good so far... my only, disappointments are the community group changes or disbandment... I just wish and hope that they keep NHF, Anecdotes and 911 [sigh] if that happens, then you will see me here @globalhosting...
