    Thumbs up

    Hey everybody. I know there has been some less than positive posts on here lately, so I wanted to start a full blown positive one! I want to thank all the moderators for doing their job, and doing the best that they can. I also want to thank Tony, and Phillip (and everyone else who helps out) for making this a great place to discuss topics and get help with growing plants, and advice on just about anything we can think of.

    Thank you!!!

    Yep, Thanx to everyone. Well, maybe not.. I'd a probably been happy with 2 vft's and not spent anymore money on more plants had you all not gotten me hooked...

    Anyway, I'm very happy I found these forums to help me learn more about CPs.

    Thanks! I know it gets discouraging sometimes, but this forum needs you mods to keep it running smoothly! And members, need to post less controversial subjects!

    Thanks for all of your help!

    you know this is a great place and I love it here as Ive said before this is family to me. Sometimes we may rub each other the wrong way but thats what family does... right? Its to be expected in a huge group of people especially with everyone comming from different back grounds. But all in all we have fun here.
    I would like to point out though on a side note that if you ever feel offended or off in any way due to anything posted here let one of us mods know, thats what we're here for. It doesnt make you a rat and we mods know how to keep things confidential. Dont let things build up to the point where youre screaming mad inside and blow up or leave. Also please note that us mods do have other lives aside from here so we dont always have tome to watch each and every thread. Believe it or not we do rely on members as well to keep this our little "Happy Place". Oh and one more thing we are always willing to talk and make friends so feel free to just say "hi" if youre bored. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Question

    Thanks Mods and all the others that make this place safe and fun.There's way more possitive stuff on this thread than negative so that's good.I think every forum(and anything else)has it's ups and downs,which is fine,but what makes this place great,is that the people in charge know how to handle it well when things go a little crazy.Thanks again,I don't think I'm gonna be leaving anytime soon [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] *Niki*(Trapper7) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_r_32.gif[/img]

    Oops,I meant to write,there's way more possitive things in this FORUM,not thread [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    Great Googly Moogly!

    When I first came here, thought I will be here maybe a week. Had really never thought I would make friends here but that has changed. Since I have been here I have meet a few people and got to know some by messenger. Now this forum is in my favorites. Thanks everyone for keeping this well run!

    Thanks you guys and gals! Its funny...before I even saw this topic, I was just thinking about making a post Shelly did. But she beat me to it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    We all have concerns about recent upheavals in the forums. We are not happy about it. But like Shelly said, we have such a diverse group in everything from age to culture to moral values..everything under the sun. And as hard as we might try, we can't please everyone all of the time. We want to! Personally I think its the diversity here that makes this place so wonderful.

    You need to look at discussions forums like cafeterias. You might go to one, look around and not see anything there that appeals to you. So you get in your car and drive to another one. That one you might like better. But even still, as you look at what they're offering, you aren't going to want to partake of it ALL. *So you pick and choose what you like and leave the rest behind.* That is the only way to be happy with what you have. I don't think any one CP forum is the "end all, be all" to CPs. They each have a lot to offer.

    Personally I feel the membership here is the best bunch of folks you could ever meet. The kindness, generosity, humor and caring is just exceptional. Even though I will probably not meet most of you, I would sure want to...and still consider many here really great friends...REAL friends.

    Like Shelly said, the mods are always here to help out in any way we can. You have but to ask! Don't let something that's bothering you sit in your gut until it explodes. Talk to us. We will do our darnest to fix a problem or help anyone out. We might not always be able to do it, but we'll sure try. There are many of you here that have sought our help, even sometimes with "off forum" issues. So many of you know how much we'll go to bat for you. But there will always be a handful who can never pleased. Such is life. We will not sacrifice the forum at large for a few.

    I love Phil for putting up with what he has to at times when he is so busy. Without his generosity and caring about CPs and the community, we wouldn't have this MOST EXCELLENT forum. And then you add in the great mix of people we have and...well...I think its a wonderful place.

    No forum is ever going to be "perfect", so we just have to remember this and accept it for what is. A great community of wonderful people who all share a love for growing carnivorous plants.

    Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive of the mods. Its no picnic sometimes. You all don't always know what goes on "behind the scenes" or hear *both sides* of the story. Please bear that in mind.

    Hey, I love this place! I wasn't even looking for a discussion forum. I only stumbled onto it, while trying an intensive online search for what kind of plants the garden centers were selling me. What an incredible goldmine of information about plants, computer development, and cyber friendships!

    To reiterate and make very clear - PLEASE, PLEASE, if someone has offended you - use the PM's! Get it settled privately. It humiliates people when they are discussed in negative terms, on a public forum. Nip it in the bud. Perhaps there is a simple misunderstanding / misinterpretation of what was said. I know, because a friend was teasing me on the forum and it didn't feel like teasing. I PM'd him and discovered that no harm was intended. In fact, it was his way of expressing confidence in the friendship.
