    I need to vent a bit this morning. I'm not even feeling irritable, but would like to say it anyway.

    PLEASE read farther back in the thread! I see the same questions asked over and over. It's like when it's being read by a new reader, they want to comment immediately instead of reading a bit first. The question they have asked is usually addressed on page 2, but someone asks it on page 5, again on page 9, again on pages 13 and 18.

    It's like jumping in on a conversation in a group. How silly to interupt and ask them to restart the story. And, it's pretty interesting to go back and read the whole thread, or atleast several pages.

    Just for your entertainment, here is a photo of the colorado river, through the Grand Canyon.

    I know I am guilty of that, but sometimes we just get in a hurry and want to comment before reading 8 or 9 pages.

    I sometimes go back and reread something I've commented on and realized what I have done! :D Guess I'll try and be more careful in the future.

    I really don't mind seen the same questions. Each time something new is added to the thread and I learn something new each time. We could suggest Admin to have a page with frequently asked questions and move these threads and let new people know about the page on their welcome e-mail. I sggest the threads left unlocked so new information can be added.

    Locked means ... you cannot post to the thread anymore. For lack of better words, it means that Admin and Mods are tired of "listening" to the thread, so the thread is "locked" so nothing else can be added.

    They also locked "sold" threads. at least some of them. I wish we could delete them ourselves, and if we forget, then they can come clean up after us. I like being able to delete the pictures of items that are sold, and edit..it helps to avoid confusion.

    i will try to be more in tune with threads,and read before i post an answer. i usually answer straight from the email..without checking whatelse has been written..

    I am sure I am guilty of this too, however I don't always have time to read each post in a lengthy thread. Sorry to annoy you.

    I've noticed this too...nice photo of the Grand Canyon. When I was younger I hiked down in one day, spent the night and hiked out the next day. Carrying a 30 lb. pack! Those were the days:>

    I am new to list board. I problem I have is when I search for something top answers always seem to be from 2 years ago, or the links don't work.

    I have also found that if I read something, most times I can't find it again. Not sure what I am doing incorrectly.

    I am also not sure what a thread is, but as a newbie to this site, it is hard to figure out where to find things.

    Sorry if we are don't understand the rules, but I have learned a lot from this site

    Reading ALL of some of these LONGER THREADS is not possible, or I would never be able to chit chat here and have time to sew.

    I agree, sometimes it is not possible to read all of the thread, sometimes there is 40 pages?? I just dont have the time, but I try to not post a question if I can find the answer. But there is so much info on here sometimes it is hard to find the answer you are looking for too.

    I try to remember to do a search before I ask a new question. I have found that the answers are usually already there. I like to read everyone's comments on a thread. There are some real nuggets of wisdom tucked in here and there.
    Love the picture - did you take it? Since you are on the Utah Arizona boarder, is it your view out the window?

    No not out my window, but I do have that kind of scenery all around here. We went on a raft trip last summer and took the photo then. It was a blast! The best time is ALWAYS! But if anyone comes to the north rim of the Grand Canyon, you need to see me! Please???

    When a topic has been opened, the ongoing discussion or contribution is called "thread" So this would be the thread about a quilting board pet-peeve, particularly people not reading earlier pages.

    I interpret your peeve not as someone asking general questions about quilting and/or sewing that have been answered in tutorials or links but, like when someone posts a picture of a project and someone on page 1 asks what the pattern name is, and is answered... then someone asks on page 3, then on page 4, etc. etc.

    Oh newbees! I don't mind when you ask questions. No problem. Just because we've talked about it in the past doesn't mean that YOU know that. You are right Pam, that my peeve is when someone just doesn't look back a page or two and see that the questions has already been answered.

    I never mind a repeat thread. My memory period is measured in nanoseconds so it's always new to me :-D

    Bookmark it. Look in the upper left corner at the top of the page. Then you can find it.

    I almost never do what you say and if I do skip a few pages I usually have to go back and read from where I left off, so I can read what someone refers to. I never ask questions, just see what the person is talking about. I comment either to encourage someone or to try to help with a problem.
