Lately its seemed weve had a little outburst of youngsters around here(and i dont mean all the babies these old ladies are popping out ) and i think theres a few key things that should be gone over so we can get this forum back in order and back to the way it was. First of all, welcome to all of you,its good your hear on the same interest as wel all are,our interest in frogs. i think it is really awesome you guys are out to learn. but we need to have a talk here.

1st- Just so everyone knows, if you make a post,and you forgot to add something in, go to your post you want to fix,under your name,there is a green EDIT word. click on it,and you can fix the post,so you dont need to make another post right after it,that is kind of a pain if you dont mind me saying.

2nd- Alot of you guys are makign little comment posts that really are seen as unnecessary. its nice that the froggies are cute,or that you like th epicture,or you have one jus tlike it,or you like frogs,blah blah blah. But you really dont need to post something like that,ya know? its a pain in the butt thinking your going ot find a serious question or comment and then theres the cutesy little things that arent needed.

3rd- you guys are killing us digging up these old posts. The reason Becki(one of our Moderators) is bumping all of our posts,its because someone keeps going to old ones,posting,and bringing them up to the top,where all the new posts get pushed down,to where they are unseen. what if someone has a serious problem but no ones knows about it to help them,because the cutesy posts on old threads are popping up?you knwo what i mean?

Thanks guys,i hope youll take my advice,and dont take it offensively. good luck.

As some may notice, I have taken it upon myself to go through and do a bit of editing and deleting. I've combined a few multi posts and deleted a few comments here and there that I felt were only going to cause problems.

Let's keep our heads on straight and think before we post please.

Sheryl, sweetie, I completely understand your frustration - trust me, I spent several hours sorting through posts to bump them - but some of your responses to/about hte subject are bordering on being insensitive......not at all meaning you are untending it that way but just so you know it could quite possibly be taken that way. Whit, Heather and I are doing the best we can to keep things in order and handle this without causing any flare ups.....just have a little patience with it all....I know that's not always as easily said as done.......but bear with us.
Thanks!!

Yes, believe me, all of the mods are working on the situation. But please everyone keep in mind that we can handle things either outside of the forum or quickly and quietly on the boards, so just because you may not see us working, we are well aware of whats going on and have been working nonstop to keep some order here. But we all have to work together on this one, starting with as Becki said, a little patience. So remember, trouble wont last always!

If you lurk around other places such King Snake like I sometimes do, you all know how out of hand stuff can get. Threads go on forever, with posturing, flaming or whatever you call it, when no one has actually read and understood a controversial post. Everyone is talking at once without listening first. That's human nature, and I confess to being among the specie. I only post here, because I like the attitude here. I like the more gentle kindness approach, as well as the seemingly intimate concern for young people. I think I would call it good manners-- like you don't slurp soup or fart at the dinner table. You use a fork, even if isn't the right fork. One of the things that is done here is mentoring new people, especially very young ones. It takes a lot of patience.

Lee... True words of Wisdom! I agree 100% It's all about maintaning a certain code of ethics. And one of the things that I love best about this forum is that a good portion of the time it's more constrictive critasism rather than scolding. Every once in a while a nerve is hit and things can go a little off track, but it often does get resolved quickly and more often than not, we all grow from it.
