I need an honest answer
 
It seems to me that I have done something to have upset or offended some of you. I'm not so stupid that I can't tell when my posts are being ignored, my questions not answered. I would greatly appreciate someone being honest with me, 100% brutally honest. All I wanted was to help MY horse gain as much weight and be as healthy as she can be, and it's quite obvious that she's making a lot of progress. If someone has a problem with me, or does not want me here, I think I deserve to know why. because I sure can't think of anything I have done. So, please just let me know, and I also notice all my threads are not in bold, like everyone else.

I don't think I've seen you much on the forums?

But yeah if your threads/questions aren't being answered, keep in mind there are hundreds to thousands of posts each day. It's easy to miss them unless you're specifically looking for them

Your threads aren't in bold because once you click on a thread title, the title becomes normal type until a new reply is added. If you yourself are always hovering around the thread and viewing it frequently, you will never have an unviewed, new post. Therefore, you thread will never appear bold to you. :wink:

Linda,
I am not seeing where you are lacking in responses to threads you have started, nor have I seen anyplace where members have been unkind or ignoring. This might exist, but I have not seen it. Not sure where you feel that you have offended folks here. h m m .......?
If you really feel that someone is not treating you as the forum rules say, welcoming, helpful and friendly , you can report this to the moderation team.

You are taking things wayyyy too personal. I don't even know you or your posts, but I've been on this forum several years and if people don't respond to your posts

1. It's either something they know little about and can't help you or

2. Sometimes things just get pushed down on the list for some unknown reason and not very many people see them. But it's not likely that you have some sort of reputation and people are snubbing you.

If your thread gets pushed down the list you can always reply to it yourself saying that you are just bumping it up and would appreciate some help. I have done that a few times myself.

I don't think anyone particularly likes me or hates me on here and some of my posts sort of take-off and some just sit dormant. When they sit dormant I just assume it's because no one had any helpful information to add.

For instance here is one of mine with no replies thus far:

http://www.horseforum.com/horse-tack...s-does-243345/

I just assume no one who has read the post has actually used one of the saddle pads I am asking about. That's all. :-)

I dont recognize your name, so I clicked on it, I see thread you have started, like
Fart joke, and Making babies. Pretty much why I dont recognize any of your threads.
From this thread sounds like you are a drama seeker. Or at least thats how you're coming across.

If you can't think of anything you've done chances are you haven't 'done' anything. I mean come on, I've been here for years and people still ignore my threads :wink: especially when they can't be of any service / don't have anything to say / just aren't interested in the topic. There are lots of people here, but there are even MORE threads and nobody can reply to every single one, don't be offended because people aren't swarming to you.

That said, most of your threads are in the jokes section and I know lots of members rarely go through that forum and if they do they don't post often.

tinyliny 08-01-2013 07:24 PM

Well, now I have to go read about those felt pads!

ETA went to that felt pad thread, clicked on link and it dosn't go anywhere. there's your answer!

Yep, this is pretty accurate. I NEVER look at the funnies forum, though I occasionally catch something when I look at All Unread Posts. But what should I say to those? "Oh haha that was funny!" Doesn't seem enough of a reply.

It also depends on the question. I know some questions are asked it seems almost daily and it gets old answering the same question over and over with no variation - use the search function before posting is always a good tip.

I can honestly say I have not seen you around but if I can make one recommendation? Please use a normal sized font. The color is fine but I HATE reading huge font, it makes it harder to read and makes me not want to read it at all.

Otherwise nothing against you from me!

How threads are titled has a lot to do with who and how many members click on them. If you have serious questions (what most people, myself included look for) put enough information in the title to get a serious answer.

There are a lot of social networking websites and forums out in cyberspace. This is almost all horsey people with horse related problems or comments that post on this site. Most of the 'off topic' (non horsey threads) are still frequented by mostly horsey people.
