I doubt you would upset anyone, Lazy Gardener. Your opinion is just as important as anyone else's. Personally I don't mind not having a thank you - and I hope I say thank you to anyone to gives me advice - but what irritates me is when someone asks a question and myself and many more reply, then there's no further imput from the questioner and the thread just fizzles out. It has happened in threads I have contributed to and to others which I've just read. I often wonder why that happens.
Another gripe is that I don't seem to get emails to notify me when a thread has been replied to. It says in the blurb that you don't get notification emails unless you log into the forum. But, sometimes - in fact daily - I come to the forum without logging in just to read what's what. I only log in when I want to ask a question or respond to one. It means that sometimes I miss someones comment - as I have noticed this morning - and then that makes me feel bad at not keeping up with the conversation.
I know we all don't like receiving shed loads of emails every day, but perhaps the system could be tweaked so that we get notification emails for ALL the threads we participate in. Eventually the older ones cease naturally so that would reflect on the number of emails we get. Who knows? Not me, that's for sure.....
