New Members Post Rock Questions, Never Reply To Answers


Recommended Posts

I’m sure I’m one of the newer members here.  But as you might be able to deduce from my handle, the rock and mineral section is one of the reasons I joined.  From beach combing as a kid, I’ve always loved rocks and lapidary.  If questions/answers here can kindle a life interest in a couple truly curious people, I am willing to put up with a lack of a polite response from some drive-by posters.

I'd leave it be Steve. I've had a shot are identifying the specimen once or twice. They can be interesting to the person responding and maybe educational. I still cringe when, as a geologist, I overthought one post that turned out to be quartz ?

Same thing happens on the Meteorite forum..one post and then poof gone..guess they don't like the answers..even though I know very little about Geology gems and minerals I sometimes come here to look and maybe learn something.

With the new member account rules kicking in it'll be interesting to see if it has an effect on the hit and run group.  Personally I enjoy Rock and Mineral forums much the way others do.  They often can be very informative, and as a rock hound, offer me a view of stuff I'll probably never collect ?

I used to be fairly active in these forums but I do admit the "What is it" stuff put me off.  However I do pop into read new posts in the event it might be comment worthy.  So I say keep it.
