It helps if we can understand what you were asking.

I can understand if English is not your first language, and in that case most of us can eventually puzzle out the questions being asked. But when the apparent language issue is coupled with a total lack of punctuation or capitalization it becomes too much. This isn't a chat group where all rules of grammar, punctuation and style don't seem to matter because you're all doing the same thing (and it's mostly babble, anyway).

We're all volunteers here. We all want to help, but we all have our own trees, our own jobs, or school, or lives and can't always spend the time deciphering what seems to be an incoherent essay.

You need to try your best to be clear about what you need to know, state it as simply as you can and as clearly (and in complete sentences.

So please try again with your questions. We'll try to do better if you will too.

I will echo Jim's response and will add that information was provided to your query.

This is a catch and release fishery, please have the decency to acknowledge responses instead of going off in a huff.

The first tool you need to acquire in this passion is patience, that is if you are in it for the long haul, and the second is common courtesy.

Hi Jonathan,

"A picture is worth more than a thousand words". Please give us a photo of your bonsai or a website link and we will comment!

Best wishes,

Hi there,

Norma, Rick and Jim gave sensible, civilized answers.

I usually don't read messages like:


what???????????

But I would like to congratulate the above mentioned for their courtesy and their patience.

Er... What was the question again?

OK, I am one of the 'Not an Expert', and I find that I get answers to my questions. May I suggest that you do the following:
1- Post a picture when possible, a link is nice but a picture here is better. Sometimes someone wishing to help does not have the time to go to your site.
2- Be as specific as possible, but be as brief as possible.
3- The better 'worded' the question, the easier it is to understand and to answer.
4- Be patient. Some people stop by the Forum only a couple of times a week, some more often.

Good luck with your trees
Jay

Yes some degree of care with what you post is more than appreciated, it is essential if you are to be understood. This is particularly important as we are a global club and some members struggle to understand plain and simple english, with clear and properly spelled and punctuated sentences. If you throw text speak and a complete lack of care for what you say into the mix, I'm afraid your queries will be ignored. And if you can't display a little patience, I will just ban you.

Actually I suspected a Troll, so I ignored your first post deliberately.
