Would members be interested?

Mike - stop being ridiculous - no one is laughing at you - you started a thread about sharing information, several people agreed that it would be a good idea, other people contributed, sharing information that they have come across.  Along the way there was a little humour which you also joined in as that is the nature of this forum.  

If you want to keep a thread just for you to post stuff on then you're on the wrong forum - this one doesn't work like that - threads are conversations which people join in if they're interested.

The tone of your post is totally unwarranted - I just hope that the kindness and big-heartedness of posters on this forum, which you have experienced in the past, will remember what you've told us of your difficulties and ignore the pettiness.

A 'Plant ID' forum topic

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 06:33

Hi Bluefingers

We often try to help ID plants - just start a thread asking for an ID and post a few pictures of the plant in question, showing whole plant from the side, leaves, stem, flowers etc. Size is also helpful.

To post a photo on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where yo type your post and follow the instructions to upload a picture from your pc.  Sadly it doesn't work for phones - yet.

 Morning everyone - rain's stopped, wind's died down, Spike's taken Verdun for a walk on the Towans, the dishwasher is loaded and all the empties are in the bin.

Let me know when you want breakfast - but better be quiet - I think KEF and Pdoc may have headaches 

Lily - I still feel as if I'm on holiday 

A Day Out

Of course, PF's strange experience  may just have been one of those odd forum blips - sometimes it can throw a wobbly and do something odd, or you cursor can linger too long over something that you've not noticed.  

I can't think of a way that anyone can object to something that you've not actually posted and submitted - after all, it's not been uploaded to the forum until you click on submit.
