If You Ask A Question Please Acknowledge The Answers

It can be frustrating when a new member comes here ( usually ) asks a question , receives a number of replies , and then the original poster never comes back and acknowledges the answers.

There are many people here who take the time to answer your questions. Some members know answers usually from experience but some will do some research , post links and pictures to help a snowblower owner with their problem.

Sure, a lot of new members come here with a specific problem and that's all they need is a little help. Fine. At least come back and comment.

Everyone here is here to help and/or learn so the best you can do is to come back with an answer. Whether to thank or tell what worked and what did not work so other people can learn.

Don't be a "One and Done " member.

Good luck with that. Just about every forum that I go to has this same problem. Too many people are rude, self-centered, and just like taking advantage of free-help.

AMEN! I totally agree.....I actually find it rude when people won't even acknowledge an effort made on their behalf. Myself, I have learned a great deal on this site, and want to thank everybody, and anybody who has helped me. Awesome job Oranputeh, for speaking up.

Life is short, so if you don't have the strength to laugh at yourself,
call me.....I'll laugh at you!

We were quick to become Lifetime members because this forum has saved me so much in repairs. without exaggeration I have saved over a thousand dollars in Honda repairs and parts over taking my machines to the dealer. stopped doing that 3 years ago.

even started a Honda snowblower specific group on facebook to help save other Honda owners money and reference this site on the harder questions. what goes around comes around.

now it's "beer o'clock" thanks for the good comment.

This forum makes it easy to do that with the ability to thank for or like a particular post, or just a quick comment as suggested.

I appreciate all the knowledge on this forum. It seems that collectively any problem that presents itself gets sorted out in short order. Really good community here. I know I have learned a lot.

It's all about basic manners. I hate it when I write to people, but they tell me they are "too busy" to answer. Soon I cross them off my list.
