We recently removed Lists from Mamapedia

We recently removed Lists from Mamapedia

Regular visitors to Mamapedia may have noticed we recently removed Lists from the site.  There were a few reasons for this decision.  First and foremost, we want to keep the community focused on questions and answers and Voices posts.  Reviewing site usage and page visits revealed Lists only made up 0.02% of the site’s pageviews.  Put another way, for every 10,000 pages viewed on Mamapedia only 2 of them would be Lists. Secondly, the Lists were a prime target for spammers….

An Improved “Ask A Question” Page

An Improved “Ask A Question” Page

One of the ways we want to improve the content on Mamapedia is getting you, our users, to post questions as questions and make sure they are unique. Until recently there was no easy way to do that.  In fact you weren’t even encouraged to do that. As a result the same questions have been asked again and again under very generic titles.  For example, a search for “potty training” returns nearly 13,000 questions.  The top 10 matching search results are all questions that used “Potty…
