Just wanted to say that I really, really appreciate it when people share a story, or ask for advice, and then come back to update, noting in the "Topic Description" section that they've update, and what post number it is.

So often, I might read someone's story, may or may not comment, but then there are 10 pages of replies, and it's hard to read through them all (especially if you're in a hurry), but I wonder what the outcome was.  So for people to update, and tell you where to look for the update, makes life so much easier.

So thanks for those who go to the trouble to do that! hhugs.gif

I get frustrated when I want to follow a thread, but I had to scroll or search post history to find out any updates - especially if they do a lot of posts through the day.

So that's why I always update the OP or put in the Post #

Yes, it is much appreciated when they note the post no., NOT the page no. Do people not realise that you can alter your settings to have more than 4 posts on each page?

Bwok-Bwok: you are a shining exemplar.

P.S I hope everything is o.k with you.

Agreed - and also not a fan of the page numbered updates.

I appreciate that, too. Bwok-Bwok, you have been exemplary, and I'm another one who really wishes for a happy ending for you.

Other things I love seeing on EB:

* When people rally around someone in need -- especially in cases of DV, depression, or other issues that could be very isolating.

* When people come back to "thank" EBers for particularly thoughtful advice that has been dispensed (especially when some members go to great lengths to provide practical information and support).

* When people share "Good news" stories. I wish that board were read more often because there are some really uplifting, cool stories there.

* When someone shares concerns about their child, and a bunch of people not even related to me chime in with "If in doubt, check it out." Warms my heart! original.gif
