I perfer the old avatar.  If you make your own, it gives a more 'personal' touch to it, rather than a pre-fabricated one. But, it's not bad.

Hello,
I personally prefer the old one, with it being more unique and colorful. On another note, Jamie, I have tried to tell you many times, but I seem to always be ignored.

When you are talking to such a large amount of people, I feel it is neccesary to use a greeting, or if a greeting isn't quite fitting, at least a bit less abrupt, maybe even rude (as your posts could sometimes be interpreted) than:

this is one of the friendlier posts you have made as well, with many being even less informative, like when you just say: tell me how 2 -------- (whatever it is). Sometimes simple things like punctuation and spelling out abbreviations can make a post that much nicer to read. The topic title:

is also incomplete, and on a slightly different note, I (personally) feel that after all the work that Petflytrap does to give these forums, you shouldn't waste entire posts on every little thing that you change/need to know. You ought to look for whichever topic would be appropriate to ask on, then ask, or if there isn't a proper place, then either PM, or if 100% neccessary, then start a new topic. Maybe this is just my transplanted norhtern Italian to southern US hospitality speaking. I don't know, but I really hope that you will take this into consideration. Just my 2 thousandths Lira (err two cents)

Ok guys...

Sure...a greeting is nice.  Being friendly sets a good atmosphere.

  And it always makes a post more readable when words are spelled correctly, punctuation is used and abbreviations are kept within reason.  It helps a lot to go back over something you've written to see if you've made a lot of mistakes and to correct them before you hit the post button.  But no one is writing a formal paper here.  There is some latitude to be relaxed and casual.

Everyone here has a different writing style.  That varies with each person's personality.  There is no need to be criticizing someone for how they post a topic.  This is not Emily Post.  (haha...no pun intended

Its best to have topics with value but that "value" can be fun too.  No one needs to respond to every post.  If you feel its a silly topic, dont reply.  No, we don't need to hear someone's toenail grew today or you stepped on an ant.  But people can share about many different things on the general forums.  Its what makes this a close community where you can make friends...and loves

...and not be so impersonal like some other bulletin boards.

So...lighten up!  Everybody try to be nice and polite...check your posts for excessive errors so we call all read what you want to say...and have fun.
