any way to have posters say what the problem is in the subject area when they post on caprine special care rather than just saying, 'help'??? then i would know which posts i am interested in opening.

I have to agree with you, too many folks use the term "help" or "urgent" when it is not called for. Those terms should be reserved for medical emergencies only.

I'm afraid I'm a culprit :doh:

But I changed mine after seeing this. I agree, especially when there is more than one 'help' thread going on at once that it's confusing.

I agree too, I have started ignoring the threads that just say "help".

Edit - I didn't mean ignoring.... I exlained below ( my brain is a little fried so bear with me lol )

I wouldn't just ignor threads because there is one going on right now that is a serious issue and does warrent the heading "help"

Specifics in the subject line are encouraged and help those who are browsing to know if they can be of help or not.

When I see HELP or URGENT, those are the ones I go straight to. They are asking for our help. I really do believe that is why they put that, hoping someone will help them out right away.

just say, 'help....with kidding' or 'dog bite' or 'chilled kid', whatever, so that there is an indication of what the 'help' is for. then people with expertise in that area can respond right away.

I didn't mean ignoring, I more meant it is a little confusing when there are two at once. If I see "help" I check it out BUT if I can't help with the situation I may confuse that thread with one that I could help, and not look at it right away because I thought it was the thread I couldn't help with. Sorry if that was a little confusing lol

Well when I see help or urgent I think it is a medical problem not something like they need help deciding which buck to use. While the poster did want input on which buck to use there was no need to put "help" in the topic. All cute kids is asking is for people to be carefull with their wording.

i wasn't referring to any entry in particular; it just seems that over time there have been several 'help's listed without any clarification in subject heading. i just like to know, if i am in a hurry, what the help is about; also when looking back over special care to see things i may have missed, i like to know which ones to be sure to check for my own edification.
this thread is not a 'none issue' to me if it is interpreted as i intended. imo, all of the subjects are 'better' if they include a clue as to what is to follow.

everyone is entitled to their oppion I can't go in an change every thread that has a help title.

Your suggestion has been noted and those who see it I am sure will note it and if it isn't an emergency ASAP issue they can make the title more clarified.

It would be nice for the "help" threads to say what it pertains to, but in a real emergency, someone may not put it in there. Let's all take a deep breath and shake hands. :D
