I was wondering if there is a way to keep any particular thread at the top? I had thought of making a post with medical and other abbreviations many of us older members use suxh as Sx = surgery, IMHO = in my humble opinion. By the way please forgive my typos on some of my shorter posts they are mostly done via my cell & going back is a pain and if I hold the Clear button to long it erases the whole post. I know even as a vet. member it takes me a while to figure out some of the abbv. took me a while 1 day for the imho

You could ask the Administrator via email your question and explain exactly what you want to do then he will decide if he can or will make it a "Sticky" where it does stay up top ..I think it is a good idea personally and get some others on board with you ...The Admin is a fair and nice guy I am sure he wont mind you asking this of him

Plz do let us know k

There have also been some VERY long posts, which can be very difficult to read. I realize that sometimes a longer post is needed, especially from the newly diagnosed or new people joining the group, but be sure to break them into paragraphs that are a little more readable.

When you bump and there is already one BUMP

That "BUMP " should be deleted ( acc to Admin) Bumped or a post added to bring it back to top.Whew..am I making sense YET..lol

I do try and do the paragraph thing I know I usually make long posts and I try to break them up sorry to say if I lose my place in 1 large paragraph I may avoid reading parts of it. I too find it much easier to read broken up :)

Hi there,
 
I apologize...I recently posted a similar post for one of the members on here, hoping to get a response.  I posted a similar one probably a month or two ago.  My apologies! 
 
Would it be ok to "revive" the original post instead of putting up a new one, just so it can appear near the top of the list? 
 
I am really hoping to hear back from this particular member, just because they have gone through what I am going through and it REALLY scares me. 
 
Thanks again and sorry about any problems I may have caused!  :-)

Not pointing this at anyone in particular hun
YES I think it is better to re pull the old thread up myself rather than post another...thats my thoughts on it and if you really need to get this person by all means go for it.( you can delete the other one I have no clue what it is lol)
Have a great day

AND thanks all the questions help us too ...

All great reminders and suggestions.  I have personally broke long posts by some members into paragraphs as I have trouble tracking the question.

One other thing I have noticed is some of the posts are not answered or even acknowledged.  Not many but some, and I myself have posted and no answer from anyone after 24 hours so I deleted my post.  It made me feel very unsupported.  I am not sure how other members feel.

A bit of compassion can go a long way toward helping people with life's challenges and reaching out can help alleviate feelings of loneliness. We're all different, but we're really all the same. At sometime or another, we all need or want help or simply someone with whom we can share our burdens or successes.

Respectfully

People have also said that they find coloured posts hard to read on the forums.

I know I find it almost impossible to decipher SMS-ese.

Good points Kitt..When I see that a post of mine has been read by 100 or more and only 1 or 2 comment,,even an old tough skinned crohnie like me feels a bit slighted. Most of my post are only meant to bring a smile, but its good to know someone did..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I have to agree myself with Kitt. I know there have been times when I just needed some understanding or ideas and very few if any responded and I too felt slighted. Hasn't happened alot, but it has happened.

MODS I may be emailing one of you soon to discuss another problem I see on the board that concerns me. I need to figure out how to word it correctly, but something has been bothering me.

Thanks Mods for your hard work.

We really need a FAQ which has pointers to the top 10 or top 20 topics. Or at least have links in there that take the user to a SEARCH page which has already executed the SEARCH for the topic in question.

On the other hand, the search feature of this site often fails me. Not sure why (as I'm not technologically inept) but it does.

my .02... carry on.

This is why we do say to read past post and threads to new members there are so many duplicate posts or questions and I know we have had them answered before
But we also dont want to scare off any new ppl /members by not answeing them either......IMHO anyways

I use the search where it has Google and it works for me......never tried the other one........

I agree it would be great if we could have a sticky with 10 or 20 most asked questions and answers ......

Have a good day all

*blush*

LOL sis . . . I've been hanging out at the Lupus forum for years . . . and I've only tried the other search button . . . now that I try the one you pointed out . . . it gave me lots of results.

I still like the idea of the "sticky" FAQ's. If you check the "Lupus Resources" thread (link in my signature), a Cron's mod could do the same here. For the "best tips from members" we started a normal post and each member contributed their best advice. After the topic became less active, I took all the responses and put them into a document to post them as ONE in the same post. It is WAY helpful to newbies. You can also see the links that were added in other posts in that topic. We (the Lupus mods) are just REALLY careful about what goes into that topic . . . but it does allow for "sticky" info. You can even include a link to good threads. But we did lose some as they fall into a certain age and disappear.

Thanks to all you Crohn's mods!! You do a great job here!! Its a very active forum.

Blessings!

The google search searches the entire site, not just the Crohns forum, unfortunately.
