When someone asks a valid question, and I give a brilliant reply :sarcastic: and I never hear back...no "thanks", or "you're reply sucks," etc. To those few who do say thanks, right back at ya.

Any post that goes over let's say 150 words.....especially if they don't use paragraphs! I refuse to read those. Allnurses should have a limit on how many words you can type! Kind of joking, but geeze.....cut to the chase people.

I re-read and re-read my reply before submitting, then see a dumb typo.

I'll admit that if a person posts a single huge block of text without regard for paragraphs......I am done reading before I start.

Long sentences, sure, I'm ok with that. But when they ramble on to the point where it mimics a schizophrenic off his meds....yeah, I'm also done reading pretty quickly!

AN should serve food and beverages. I could go for some ice cream sometimes, or maybe some chips, guac and a margarita with salt.

Othern that I'm good.

No offense to Nurse Beth, who gives good career advice, but the front page looks like the Nurse Beth show.

What about the non-career articles?!? Heck, what about the member articles?!? They're getting drowned out.

Maybe there should be a forum for the regular, paid writers to post their stuff instead of it all showing up on the front page. Or maybe something like a blog link. It doesn't matter how, I just want to be able to see member articles again without having to dig for them.

I'm confused, you want thanks for your well thought out posts, but don't think replies should be over 150 words? Some threads cover complex issues. If correct grammar and paragraph formatting is used, long posts are not burdensome to use.

Threads littered with a bunch of replies, especially those quoting lengthy posts, just saying "thanks" can get burdensome to read. I hope when you're saying you want thanks, you mean you want people to click the "thanks" button, not add a reply with the sole purpose of saying "thank you."

I wish AN would allow users to increase the number of posts per page like many forums. One forum I go to allows 40 posts per page. It's wonderful. I find all of the clicking to a new page very cumbersome here, especially when they throw ads in, on a slow mobile connection. They do it just to drive up page clicks for ad revenue. And it's especially annoying, because regular posters like me, are the ones creating much of the content here that people come here to see and read. Other forums I belong to don't push heavy ads on regularly participating members and when you log in, you stop seeing them. I imagine AN is quite the profit generator with all of the ads on it and all of the page click generating mechanism in play here.

I also highly dislike having 632 sub forums and sub sub sub forums. Then we'll have a highly active thread with good discussion going, and it gets moved to the "Hawaiian Licensed Practical Nurses Born between 1967 and 1979 with 4 Children" forum, that 1 person has posted in in the last 6 years never to be posted in again. It's another way to generate page clicks, so that's not going to change.

I'll admit that I tend to make typos due to a sticky keyboard - I am getting a new computer for my exclusive use - no adorable little fingers allowed.

For the most part, I no longer give help for this very reason. I can't count the times I've given in-depth answers to requests for help and...bupkis. I do give help from time to time on the oncology forum; at least there you get a "thank you" most of the time.

I don't read posts that don't have paragraphs, and I will stop reading any post that has poor spelling and grammar.

Brownbook, I have the same problem, and I even have a program running to check for typos.
