    excellent post amy :D and I totally agree.. no matter how many years we have been keeping and breeding reptiles theres always new things to learn and no one knows it all. so it would be great if everyone was friendlier and more tolerant of each other, especially of the younger kids...

    we should all look to help each other if and when we can rather than criticise..

    I agree, I have been here for 2 weeks, I am always getting friendly help and so far have not come across someone that has treated me like an idiot just because I got my first snake and am learning. And these people who do treat others like this need to remember they where new once too. Just like when your driving your car and you get held up by a Learner Driver, you were a learner once too!! And yes proper English, not all of us are up with the lingo

    Also must add that this is the first snake forum I came across and have not even bothered looking for another one cos I have found this site welcoming and very helpful. You guys are doing a great job and need some applause for what you do. As I am on the 3:30pm to 12:00am shift at work its not always easy for me to go see someone for advice, help or just a chat above what we love (also I dont know anyone who has a snake). :D:D:DGREAT WORK guys keep it up, never think that your hard work goes unnoticed.:D:D:D:D

    Slateman.......... absolutely agreed, and about time!!!!!! Well done, and good on ya!

    And if English is your THIRD language, then you are doing really well, it's one of the worst languages to learn!

    We are reinforcing this new approach for some time now, and thanks to our moderators Fay and Colin being strict on this subject, Herp help forum is working for people well.

    Well said Slateman and everyone that agrees with helping all people.

    If the question is never asked, there will never be a answer. Right!

    It's important for every one to be able to ask for advice about whatever, regardless of how long you have been keeping reptiles - CHEERS!

    It is good to encourage a more tolerant approach.

    What also should be encouraged is the use of the search facility first. There are lot of new threads started that are just a repeat of previous ones.

    Example: The my herp is not feeding thread. This topic has been covered many, many times for a number of species. I understand the inexperienced keeper just wants to know so asks- but a search on this topic will generally provide a great amount of information from previous threads.

    Maybe the first ten or twenty member posts a new member submits could be moderated before appearing. Would there be a problem in gently steering the poster to a prevous thread or sticky on the same topic.



    Just some random thoughts.

    Let's all just help each other...

    There is always a polite way to say things.

    All here for the same reason.

    Just a friendly bump. There's been a lot of off topic posting in Herp Help recently which goes against what this forum is here for.
