I stopped posting, deleted my profile and updated pictures simply because I felt some people play games in here...it started with the drawing club, a club that encouraged all those with drawing skills to post their work, well I felt only because the work of some members was not better but different than those running it, they basically started ignoring the post of those members, myself included. They started this childish, conversation back and forth as if there were doing IM. Second, my new chicks got ill with cocciosis (sp) I took some very detailed shots of their poop, at that time I didn't know what they had, hence I came here looking for help, in a matter of two hours about 35 people view it and not a single response, we all know how dangerous that disease can be and how fast it can kill our chicks, well I went to another group posted the same picture and within 10 mintues two members confirmed and suggested treatment and even where to get it around my area. Couple more hours went by and I think my post got 77 views and not s single response...that's when I decided to take a break.
I came back a few weeks ago, after getting my camera back and being able to take some pictures of my silkies chicks, excited and wanting to share the joy, I posted some pictures in the Silkie Thread, I was also asking for help IDing some colors that were unkown to me, I had someone tell me one in another group but still had question about others, I see people in there left and right with so much knowledge in colors, commenting, posting, replying but only one lady commented (to that member, many thanks) on my pictures. After my post there was someone asking advice as she was new to Silkies or was planning on getting into Silkies, that post got over 7 replies or maybe more. Other members also posted pictures after me and they got more attention as well, so I decided to deleted my pictures and just stop posting here all together.
Now I am scarred to post anything because I feel as If I'm not welcome.
