Guess I'm a little confused. You asked for help with tricolor tads and got several responses. Including a very specific bit of advice from yours truly. Looks as if several people have directed you to the tadpole care sheets. You didn't bother to post any follow up questions or acknowledge any help given except to make this post dissin the bunch of us? You asked questions. People gave answers. Nobody poked fun at you. What's the problem?

Thank you for the apology. The site can take a while to learn all the ins and outs but again, just ask and people will help. You are logged in so go the the small green box at the top right with your screen name. Click on your name. See the big box that pops up in the center of the screen? The green bar says, "Feedback Score Visitor Messages (etc)", click on "Statistics". Right under that, click on "All posts started by bazza30".
There it is.

don't be sad, this is the most hostile forum i have ever seen. hang in there and you'll get answers. the search function is also good to use.
THIS is the most hostile forum you've ever experienced?? Have you been around any other frog forums...or reptile forums...or...forums?

Please take this in the way I mean it (friendly, helpful, non-judgmental) but a lot of the more experienced keepers are people in their 30's, 40's and 50's. People of that era (myself included) tend to see posts with no capitalization, misspellings and unreadable grammar...and just sort of move on.

If you have two posts, one sent like a abbreviated text, and the other written clearly, the second will receive real replies.

Perhaps that's why Vespers isn't such a fan.

You'll get the hang of it. As far as activity goes, this isn't the most active forum on the inter webs. Nothing wrong with that but for chatting and a faster pace n such you might want to look at one of the larger reptile forums.

If youre looking for information in general, there is loads of it here. Once you master the search function you'll be in business. You can search forum wide or in the sub forums. Don't have your search terms be too vague or too specific. Just take the time to sift and browse.

And this forum is tame. You want hostility, wander on over to 4chan n the likes. Sometimes posters may come across as snippy because of the inane and redundant questions asked over and over. Part of forum netiquette is searching first. But it is what it is.

A couple of things.
1) I gave you advice through the PM system the other without an acknowledgment back from it. 2) I think the way you went off in the original post was outta line but thank you for the apology. 3) At the upper left of the page is a link that says User CP which means User Control Panel=, that will show you many things including any thread topics you are currently subscribed to. By starting a thread or replying to a thread that subscribes you to said thread.
4) Ill agree with Boondoggle, the grammar is a very big deal for some people and you will get more and better responses by putting a little more effort into your typing.

Also as far as chat... Did you miss the link on the left side of the screen for the chat room?

Seriously, you type something like this and you`re looking for some help???
I`m the one that needs help trying to figure out what the hell you`re saying.

Oh yea...apology accepted.

I agree. It is extremely hard to read run-on sentences, that were abbreviated, and with bad punctuation. I'm not trying to rag on anyone or anything, it's just a little frustrating reading posts and having to really think and re-read, just to understand the post..

I am a new user and have gotten great advise from teh two threads I started. I have also not noticed any hostility on this forum.

I think people on animal based forums (of which I am a member of a few, as well as other hobby forums) can COME OFF as hostile ibecause if there is bad or vague advise given on an animal based forum, something could potentially die from that mistake. Fish, snake, etc.. forums are all the same - Dealing with living creatures that people are passionate about and that dont need to die from accidental neglect.

On the flip side, I also go to a model kit board, and its really friendly - But also because if you get a bad tip there, you can generally just paint over it, reglue it, etc.. Nothing passes away.

I feel like this issue has been resolved... the OP didn't know how to use the forum and now does, sees the error and has apologized... let's drop it.

I know we've got a "thanks" button, but as long as I'm posting I just needed to throw out a big THANK YOU! If you hadn't said it I would have.

i've been around a lot of forums and all of them have been very open to newbies and very ready to help. maybe it's because this forum is so tiny and has so few new members... (or maybe it has so few new members because they get scared away?). those forums have lots of older people too, and they aren't douchey to new people. take the planted tank forum, everyone on there is very nice and helpful. they don't make snide comments to new people.

anyway, as for the criticisms about writing... YAWN. this is the internet, not an english class. frankly, i (and many others) just want to get what i want to say out quickly, and i don't think adding a capital is going to make much of a difference. i spell things properly for the most part and my writing is clear, if i were writing something serious, i would put more effort into my spelling. the other thing to consider here is that the internet is worldwide, and not everyone speaks english as a first language, so it's a little rich to criticize them for it. i could understand if someone was writing in l33tsp3ak, but some people just don't speak good english or used google translate because they can't speak english at all. at least they are trying, but it must suck for them to have people bitching at them for mixing up they're, there and their (which plenty of middle aged english americans and canadians do all the time). anyway there are always grammar nazis on the internet though, so if that's your thing, go ahead.
