and people go out of their way to give the most helpful answer that they can, even to the point of posting a link to a website they have gone to the trouble to find, wouldn't it just seem to be common courtesy to at least acknowledge the folks who offered help?

Good point Les. I've gotten some really useful info from here and from the tractor forums. Thank You is an easy phrase to put to work. This is usually a good neighborly site to seek advice, and share some hard won insights. Years ago someone taught me this: "Poor folks have poor ways". She wasn't talking about money....
Your post is something I have wondered about. Thanks for bringing it up. Mike D.

I agree with you Les and like Ron says if they would say what they did to fix the problem then
we would all benefit . Like one had a leaking water line to the barn or some place , had lots of replys but ya never knew wheather they found it or not . I have got tons of info from people on this site . If some one post a site and I think that some day I might need it . I copy and paste it and mail it to my self. Then I can alway refer to it . Your post on grafting the other day I even printed out . Wonder how many other people looked at that and benefited .
Then I enjoy following all of Marks projects .
Thanks to all

I think it is common courtesy to thank someone, but it also helps if it solves the problem to let us all know. We all profit from it then.

Hi Les,

many times i delay thanking people because i fear it would tend to stop new responses to my question. if the posting gets down the page too far i try to repost a thank you. but i must admit that sometimes i even forget what page i posted a question on. for all the times i didn't say thank you.....Thank you for all the good information.

Ha ha that reminds me of my pal Clod.
He would always ask; "did any of the suggestions work?"
He wanted to know if any did and which was best.
He said, so we would all know more. ;-)
I miss his input here.

I like to know if it fixed or helped the problem myself. I try to answer people who post to me and even search back to see if the person who asked found out what was wrong. Mark H.

I've always thought so. And I always try to. But sometimes a thread gets a ways down the page and you figure no one will read your reply.

I have noticed in that case some folks just go right to the top
under their first post to say thanks.
That seems to work well.
I always try to thank folks for their help.
It is called good manners. ;-)

Les    Posted 09-23-2003 at 18:57:16       [Reply]  [No Email]
You are right ~Lenore. Good manners sure ain't as common as they used to be.
I suppose when it's one of the "regulars" on here, you can about rest assured that they have at least read your response to their query. But then, they are always the ones who would acknowledge it anyway.
It looks to me like there a quite a few of the examples I'm speaking of right on this page and more on page 2.

Yabbut the original poster should at least come back at some point and thank the folks who offered their help, it would seem to me. I enjoy helping people out. Sometimes you wonder if they ever read your reply or whether they just lost interest or weren't really all that interested in the first place.
