    Same here.

    Just like replying to this thread...how many times can we say the same thing?? I'm sharing the guilt just as much as everyone who replied. I was a long-time lurker before I joined the Board, but I still oohed and aaahed over the quilts!!!

    Not all of us are non-commentors. I comment quite a bit, just not as much as I probably should. Sometimes I tend to chatter, too much.

    Sometimes I just can't seem to come up with what I think would be the right words after seeing so many beautiful items that it makes my head spin, but do we really have to make a comment on every post? And if something simply doesn't suit my personal taste it's best to just not say anything at all. So far, I think I want to make at least two of nearly everything that's ever been posted here! lol

    I too am a lurker - I check every day to see what's new but usually do not comment unless I can add something no one else has said. I am inspired by ALL the quilts I see and love the tips and questions that teach me something new.

    I have to try the thumb's up., it works. I mostly look at the answers too and if I feel that it describes what I would like to say, I leave it alone. But I agree with you all, the quilts and the work on this board are beautiful!!! (even if we don't say so).

    Also there was a while when I could view pages on my phone but could not reply. Obviously I can do so now though. LOL!

    As a newbie I am always interested and more than a little grateful when anyone posts a picture of their achievements. Not only is it inspiring to see all the wonderful work that is displayed but always a learning experience too. Colour combinations, patterns, layouts etc always give me food for thought. Invariably I also feel envious of the creativity that I see. But it has also been such a valuable learning tool for me. If I have not left a comment it is never that I do not see something of value but because I am often overwhelmed at the beautiful quilts and feel any comment is inadequate. But be rest assured that I am always grateful that so many of you have so generously shared your efforts.

    Add me to the list. I am simply amazed at what lovely things I see but don't take time to say so. I am really sorry.

    Depending on what I'm viewing the site on, it can be a real challenge to post comments. It acts up on my iPod all the time and I just give up.

    I love and appreciate everyone's hard work. Often, I don't add anything additional if there have been pages of prior responses to a posting. What I do is look at how many responses a posting has gotten and if the "postee" has received little or not enough positive encouragement, I'll make sure she/he gets a sincere "atta girl/guy". It's important to know our work is validated and acknowledged and there are enough folks on the QB to spread the warm fuzzies around.

    I don't write very much anymore. It was a lot easier when we could give a thumbs up on our reply.

    I don't always comment on everthing, I do like most of everything I look at, like others have said, if there has been alot of comments I just go on. Sometimes I just look and wait a day or two to comment.

    Well here I go again. Ditto to all that has been said.....but I don't want to be known as the Ditto Queen. I have found myself on this board all day looking, reading and commenting on things. I also would love a "LIKE" button. I have not posted any pictures but I have asked questions and I really appreciate when I get answers. So many times I see something and think something. I then read more of the post and see that someone has already said just what I thought. Thanks for this thread. Thanks to all of you for helping me with what I feel is an ongoing adventure. BrendaK
