    That would be nice but truthfully, I think that a "Bite Me" button would get used a lot more.

    I would rather see an "I agree with poster" button. Sometimes I find some of the advice, different , and you hardly ever see me too posts, but if I saw that 30 other people agreed with the post I might be more tempted to try such advice. Those posters that disagree usually post as such.
    Maybe an I agree and a bs button?

    dont tell them where you tied it up.

    I try hard to be sure I post a thank-you for any replies I receive. I think that being new to the forum and to the field of training a pup for Hunt Test purposes this forum is a valuable asset.

    I respect that there are members on here who have a lot of experience and are willing to share some their time and knowledge with those of us don't. I'm also aware that some responses are just from well meaning people and that I need to sort out what will work with my pup and what won't. Either way I am thankful they took the time to post.

    I agree- being new to the forum and the sport, I appreciate it when people take the time to answer questions that might be obvious to them, or they've answered a million times before for every other newbie out there.

    If I ever miss a "thank you," know that I really appreciate all answers!

    Being new to the forum, and new to dog training, I am someone who only asks questions. My last post only had three responses, very good advice though. I could not PM the poster because I do not have enough posts. Do I make one post thanking the responders, and have it look like I was bringing the post back up to the top to get more responses? I did not post because I did not want to look like a dipstick trying to get a "dead" thread back up to the top Point being, the posters may be very thankful, not want to ruffle any feathers. Just another point of view....I would say most are thankful for any and all advice, whether they use it or not.
