Just noticed more and more new posts slipping to page 5 and 6 with HIGH view rate but ZERO reply. Some of them the OP even said "C&C welcome"! I'm not saying everyone MUST reply to every thread that they viewed, but it would be nice and encouraging for the OP, especially when the person wanted to improve on bird photography.
Remember, it is NOT a 1-way street. Please consider the love that you get, how much love you have given back. No doubt we have a very friendly community here when comparing to other subforums on POTN. Let's keep at it.
We finally got our Bird Forum!! Let's have a HUGE round of applause for Pekka and the Mods for taking care of us.
Now all WE have to do is take care of each other. Already the forum is jumping, there's lot of new posts but we still have people getting bumped to pages 3-4 without any comments. C'mon people, let's make this new forum a new beginning and a new chance to help each other.
Please take the time to comment on some posts BEFORE you post your new pics of the day. Bump the zero comment posts up to the top again and offer a comment, suggestion, or a bit of encouragement. Put yourself in the other person's shoes and remember how your first pics looked or the anticipation you felt with your first posts... it's important that we acknowledge and encourage each other, otherwise, there's no reason for anyone to post.
If everyone gets in the habit of doing this, soon there won't be any page 3-4 zero comment posts!! A few kind words, sharing the experience, and helpful suggestions can go a really long way. Show me the love, people... show me the love!
