    After all we ARE a big happy CP loving group of people. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] And for that reason I think no one should leave UNLESS another member has hurt/discriminated/etc to the other member. That would be the exception in my view. Otherwise you should stay and ignore the posts that displease you.

    Joachim,

    I'm right there with you. I don't think that you being from Germany has anything to do with it. I have not been with this forum very long, but I have noticed a lot of posts that are not very serious, and not very informative, in just that short time. Ironically, I am about as silly a person as can be, but I want to try and help people or learn things when I come to the forum.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Joachim,

    Thanks for the post and well written reasons behind it. I have noticed that the experienced growers have been posting fewer and fewer responses lately and this has hurt the forum greatly. Hopefully your post will help to stop the frivolous posting and correct some of the errors being posted. I do not believe there is anyone who knows all there is to know about cultivating these plants, especially under the many different conditions we live in. Every experienced bit of information is helpful.

    Thanks again and if you do leave the forums, please keep in touch.

    Cheers,

    Grifin I mentioned the German thing and I didn't say it had anything to do with Joachim's feelings about the forum, I mentioned it:
    1. in relation to Joachim's English ability
    2. I think the forum would be boring if it were full of people from one country. The plants that are available, the growing conditions and the way people look at things all varies with each country and the variation is part of what makes this forum interesting.

    Cheers, Troy.

    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.
