Woa, hold a a sec nelly! Are we talking to the original Joachim? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] I am really confused now....
I concur with Joachim and feel that his guidelines should apply to all of the specific plant topics. If anyone wants to just chitchat he or she can post in the General Discussion part of the forums. That is the area where the less serious conversations can take place. I'm not a professional grower but if I look for help with a specific plant I'd like to see answers that address the issues and know the source of the answer or advice.
Thank you Joachim for your knowledge and I hope you remain an active part of these forums.
The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!
@n.g. : Joachim = Joachim Danz
For us (Germans) it is some kind of "respect" to a forum to subscribe with your full name. This will show other people who you are and that you stand behind your opinion.
You will seldom use your full name in a new forum, but at pft it is imposible to change your username.
Thank you for clarifying that Martin. I was a bit puzzled between the Joachim I know and Joachim Nerz.
Far too old to grow up now.
Joachim, I must say I agree with you about not reading some posts, which I suppose is a tad biggoted of me since I suspect that I may be one that is frequently ignored by others.
Please stay, we would miss your contribution.
I typo, therefore I edit.
Ditto everything Maeham said for me... Just didn't know how to word it... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
this thread has turned in a direction I didn't want it to. I won't make a decision on leaving this forum or not. What has started in my head is a slow process, which may result in this. I did mention this point to show you I'm very serious about the points I did try to make.
Looking at the recent postings of Arie for example I'm afraid he is already some steps ahead in a similar process. Sadly it does not make a difference at all, if someone only did stop posting his very valuable input or if he has left already. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
In my opinion a forum like this is what the active members do make out of it. I won't criticise or condemn those who do post silly things, it is totally up to the other members (including me) to guide them in the right direction. If we (I) don't do it, we (I) do have to accept the developements which take place. And keep in mind that a forum is not only a place to answer questions - an equal important part is to start interesting threads for others!
I do participate here due to the fun I have in learning new things from other memberes and in sharing my knowledge where it might be useful. But in sharing my knowledge I do expect that the ones I do share it with, try to understand my postings and try to learn from it where possible. But what should I think for example, when reading through postings, where the author is not able to follow the simplest rule of writing scientific plant names correct in lower and upper cases - against better knowledge of course?
Yes, you are allowed to call me snobby or arrogant, but that is the way I do think of it. Sorry.
