Hi Laura!

So glad you joined us, welcome aboard!

Most of my family is in Ireland, mostly Dublin and Sutton.

You'll really love this board, everyone here is awesome and extreamly laidback. A nice change from MUA. A few of us are familiar with that site but feel more at home here. I hope you think so too!

Welcome Laura! I recogzed you right away - I always see you posting at MUA!

I have to agree, both the sites serve similar purposes, but there's a lot less drama and a lot of friendliness over here that I haven't been able to find in my search for a fun message board. I hope you'll enjoy it here as well!

I'm Kage_sCupotea over there, as well.


Take care, and welcome again!

Hi Laura, did you mean some "BRANDS" are not there? If you don't see a brand, go ahead and request it by clicking on "add brand"

If you don't see a "sub category" (eyes - eyliners, lips - lipsticks etc) then shoot me an email and I can add them (tony@REMOVETHIStonysdesigns.com) or Private message me.

WOW Laura, I just checked out your swap editor and all of your swaps. You are a MODEL swapper! I'm Tony, one of the main backend programmers here on MuT...and I just wanted to say that the way you have set up your swap page is AWESOME. Good job and alot of users should check yours out to see "HOW" to set up a swap page. Our swap section is relatively NEW, so don't be discouraged if you don't get many people requesting.........
Remember, swaps are purged after 90 days.

Again.......Great job!

Thanks Tony! Its dead easy to create when all the buttons are there!! I'm short on swap items at the mo coz as i said before i was swapping on MUA for the last 6months & ive done over 40 swaps so my stash fro swapping is low at the mo! So, how long have ye been around? Its a brill site, love the layout! I only came across it by accident in google. Ye should optimize it more for search engines.

REALLY?? Dublin is about a 4/5 hour drive for me but if you ever come over to Cork, Ireland for a visit, give me a bell & i can give you guided tour (of all the make up places!!!)

Well, GREAT! Really nice to have you hanging out here. MakeupTalk has only been up and running since Sept '03. This has been a large project with many facets. It's been fun project managing it. I have to admit, I have learned alot about MAC and Sephora!! LOL
. We have many super wonderful girls here who are part of the family..............oops team(moderators/admins) and we just love them


Can I ask, what's a "brill" site? I'm not up on the latest Irish jargon


Thanks for compliments on our aesthetics. That was a GIGANTIC priority to us.


Optimize for search engines? Can you tell me why you say that? We currently use the services of a subsidiary of AR Websolutions, INC....called www.Go-Submit.com.

Thanks again!

LOL!! Brill is short for brilliant/fabulous etc.. All of my typing has turned to short hand since posting on the internet, email, texting on mobile phones!!
Ok, im not quite sure how to explain the optimization for search engines. I work in an IT company in sales. But we do web design as one of our services and i started doing a small bit of design..

Sorry, there i go rambling again! Basically, our IT guy told me to optimize it well in google, i should include all words you want to be found under on the page name (which i see ye've done already) & also in dreamweaver (thats how i created my site) there is a place where you can add "keywords" which increases the sites for optimization.. I'm sure the company ye deal with knows that already. I just suppose "make-up" is a hard word to come up top in search engines because there are so many other make-up companies, stores, websites etc..

Eh, sorry if none of that made sense.. I just said id mention it coz this is such a great site & it deserves to be seen/used on a larger level

Get what im saying??

Unfortunatly Google is a strange entity, and is difficult to follow, etc......... as we know Google keywordings/backlinking/ranking info. We are all the SAME company, MakeupTalk, www.GO-Submit.com, www.kidsdirect.net etc. All under one umbrella of AR Websolutions, Inc. Here is our design site: www.TonysDesigns.com. We do hundreds of designs all the time
and we are seasoned programmers etc.

Hi Laura!
I believe you can go under "User CP" (control panel) on the top left of the page, and then you'll see:

"Login and privacy"

"Messaging and Notification"

Then...Under "Messaging and notification" you'll see:

"Receive Email"

"Default Subscription Mode"

Then...Go under "Default Description Mode," and change your notifications from:

None, Instant, Daily, Weekly.

Hope that helps!
