    Angry Do you ever feel cheated when...

    When you respond to a post only to discover there are 18 to 20 pages of answers to that same post, do you ever feel cheated?

    I am fairly new to this board so other, more seasoned, quilters need to sound off about this.

    I don't feel cheated. I feel like the original poster was given tons of information on the question at hand. I feel bad for posts that don't get many answers.

    i don't understand your 'feeling cheated' ???
    when you read a post you can see how many replys a person has received, you have the opportunity to read through them to see if you can perhaps learn something, or maybe a few people have responded the same as you would- you also have the opportunity to add your opinion or answer. sometimes a post will disappear (go for a few days without anyone adding anything- then suddenly reappear on the what's new list---that's because someone was 'browsing' back a ways, stumbled on it (or even searched for it) and added something new- then it comes back to the (forefront) i've had quilt pictures i posted 4 + years ago suddenly be on the 'what's new' page because someone came across the picture (perhaps a newby who hadn't seen it before) and commented on it- bringing it back to everyone's attention again-
    don't feel 'cheated' just look to see if its a really old post that maybe you have no interest in- you can pick & choose what is of interest to you- and it's perfectly ok to add your comment even if it is really an old post- when it comes forward again people will check it out again to see what's newly added.

    I don't feel cheated, it just shows how many are interested in the subject.and that is really what we are on here for to reach out to each other. I read them all and if I have nothing new to add I don't reply. If I reply and a lot of others do also it makes for a lot of interesting opinions. I feel it is wonderful how many here are so willing to help or give encouragement to those who reach out for help or share their work with us.

    If I LOVE it I still add my comment even if there are 10 pages. For posts asking for help, I like reading through all the solutions even if I have my own method. There is a lot of valuable information contained in those pages.

    If there are 3 or 4 or more pages, I don't post. I figure the original questioner won't read all those postings.

    No, don't feel cheated. I usually feel that I should go through them because lots of times there are responses, advice and suggestions that might be helpful to my own efforts. I don't always post to them but I've saved a lot of information from these long threads!
