Fair play for all.
I don't get this. There is nothing unfair about this topic.
SG definitely has fair play for all. There is never an independent pattern that is not discussed.
Looking under "patterns and instructions" I see a topic for Louise's pattern, Loes Hinse, Nancy Erickson, Mrs. Stylebook, Burda WOF, Pamela Patterns, sewing workshop, and Diane Ericson. So there is no evidence of something being unfair. Just because the topic does not say the word "info" does not mean that information is not being listed. I know more about putting together a Louise pattern (and one seam pants) and I don't even own one of her patterns.
Let's see - you started the topic of Cutting line Designs, and Loes Hinse patterns, you ask a lot of question on the Nancy Erickson topic, and you participate on the Sewing Workshop discussion to name a few. I also notice that any discussion you have had about HP patterns are nothing but negative. From the few messages of yours on the HP board that I read, you definitely do not like these patterns or the company or something about their business practices. It unimportant to me why or which part of it you don't like. What is important to me is that I like this company's line very much. And I like to talk about them with others and I like to have a spot where I can find the information, just like you do for all the patterns you like.
I have zero interest in the other pattern companies listed above. And those companies are discussed way more than HP patterns on this board. I would never think to go to one of those topics and ask for "fairness" in representation.
I don't like HP being singled out like this all. I have no affiliation other than being a frequent and satisfied customer. But I am a little offended that the pattern company I like to discuss is being singled out as being unfair when it is NOT.
And who cares where it is in the order of the pattern topics list. What a ridiculous accusation to even suggest that HP or DL is doing anything underhanded. DL has started putting advertisements along the bottom. HP would get far more coverage down there than having a single topic in a single area always kept to the top. When you put in the time like DL does to keep this thing going, then you can deserve to ask. I have often wondered how much you are getting paid by Wechter's to make sure that store is constantly discussed here.
Please, if you don't like HP patterns, then just leave it alone and let those us who do like, no - love them have our spot on this board too.
Seriously, why do you care what order it is in on the topic board? What is your motive in asking this question? Why are you so concerned with the order? What does that have to do with anything?
Accusations like this make me, a HP fan, very uncomfortable.
I tolerate all the discussions about pattern companies and stores that I have no interest in; and I think this board would have a more congenial atmosphere if we all held the same attitude.
