    And we love you for it @deecoily;
    For me, there's never been anywhere like Nappturality.

    Waving @Bunny girl go post in the Reunion Board! That's where we all say hey and where I use as a central point to make sure everyone has their correct join dates and PANKdom.

    Great to see you again!

    Nappturality will always be the real gold. I can't begin to count the times I have written Nappturality on a slips of paper etc. Literally. There are still many Black women out there who need NP and as long as there are naps...well, you follow me.
    I detest FB and I keep the page for contact with friends who live on the other side of the world or I don't see often. All the others..I haven't a clue. I continue to return to NP cause it's a fit...people who look like me and theres 'our' humor and our experiences...NP is so much more than hair! smile.
    Dee..I fully understand and appreciate your just putting it right there. I often wondered why the hell some of the Black names didn't get behind NP.
    As Black women we need a place for us...Nappturality always felt like it was the place.
    My heart is spoken for.

    Yea there is nothing that has been quite like nappturality for me. It has taught me so much. I don't think I would have accepted my hair without it. Thanks Dee for your commitment and integrity it's a rare quality these days.

    Dee that was an incredible response and I just want to say thank you so much for creating and keeping this community going all these years and staying true to your vision at obviously great time and expense. I'm actually ashamed that I did not contribute more financially to NP all those years that I was a frequent poster here. I guess I just took it for granted. Now I know better that this is a super unique place with a really important mission.

    These last few years I would drop into NP only now and then and was always dismayed to find few new postings in the forums. Such a change from the old days of those really deep, sharing discussions we all used to have. Although not on social media myself I knew that the action had shifted to FB, IG etc. so I just figured that was the reason folks weren't posting like they used to.

    I cut my locks off recently and started googling to find some styling options other than my usual picked out 70s-type fro (lol).

    While I love today's multimedia internet it's been REALLY HARD to find natural hair vlogs, tutorials etc that don't focus on defining curls (in order to make kinky hair look more 3a IMO) or pasting down one's edges into total submission. I guess I just assumed that all of today's young naturals were like the folks on NP, y'know, really embracing their naps. How wrong I was. NP is needed more than ever.

    Yes it is needed ☹️....there's no online source I trust enough to refer folks to anymore. So I've just disengaged myself.

    From 2017, and still valid. Except it's worse now. People yelling at each other in 200 characters. Attention spans of 7 year olds. We are in the middle of a change, ladies. And not for the better, but for the faster.
