Hope you are all doing well :D

In the main part have stopped helping people on Facebook with IDs because you rarely get a thank you for all the hard work you put in to get them a match and provide examples of similar ones. Here it is rare to get that situation which is great and shows the more friendly atmosphere of a forum creates a different set of attitudes. Please keep up the practice because it is important.

For those new to forums it can be hard to know what level of thanks is needed. A gushing set of bottom kissing isn’t necessary, and can be embarrassing :lol: However a thumbs up is the absolute minimum that is expected.

Best practice is a thumbs up with a post to say thank you too. Some experts will go on silent strike if a member repeatedly asks for IDs but doesn’t say thank you properly afterwards - you’ve been warned :Luv Ya:

I dont do any of the facebooks metal detecting groups nowadays , much prefer the forum . There was one facebook group where the admin insisted on people saying thanks , it is just courtesy and an acknowledgement that others have taken the time to give an ID . The so called "draconian" rule of just being polite and the level of abuse meted out just for that one rule just shows the level of self entitlement that people believe they have by not saying a simple polite thankyou . Some of the responses were quite unbelievable with one bright spark asking why should we say thankyou !! The mind boggles .

I think what Oxgirl is trying to say is that when you’ve had an identification from another person then it’s only good manners to acknowledge them by pressing the thumbs up sign at the top of the page👍(When you login)
