Mark,

welcome to the Active Rain community!

Hang on there, at first it can be very confusing, since there are so many rules and guidelines. I hope, AR will bring back their webinars for new members soon again( you might want to check some old records in AR university).

Otherwise, don't hasitate call members with your questions:)

I try but fail miserably to respond to all comments. I just do my best to get around the circuit and support other Rainers. I think some members will not leave you a commnet if you don't leave them one.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint this concept itself is new to AR. However, what's that saying...

“Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you.”

Nothing is set in stone, Mark.  Though one thing I try to do is acknowlege everyone that comments on my posts or answers my questions by either a comment or a like to thei comment or answer.

On posts, I always reply to comments. However in regard to questions, I wasn't sure myself if that was appropriate, other than maybe a "like". Just to say "thank you" is nice, but not too meaningful. I think it's understood that we appreciate everyone's taking the time to answer.

I haven't been returning comments on these because some people never ask a question....but that I think is a matter of personal preference.  Have fun here, and check out even older questions because there are some very interesting questions and ANSWERS!!

When I post a question I'd rather it be each person's answer rather than a commentary on previous answers. Think of it as a one on one question where each person in the community can answer the person asking.

I had written a post awhile back asking memebrs whether they preferred to receive comments on their posts or a response to their comment on my post if I do not have time for both. Everyone replied that if they had a choice they would prefer a comment on their post. I always reciprocate comments on their posts .

Asking questions is fairly new to seasoned Rainer's too.  It's your opportunity to ask specific questions and receive points for asking.
