There are probably some of us who wonder if it’s worth taking the time out of our busy days to try to help when all advice is ignored from so many who ask. I know I have gone out of my way to help in the past, but sometimes wonder if it’s worth it anymore.

I suspect that many of us, though often only on the sidelines, appreciate and benefit from advice and critique  given here. It would be unfortunate if the responses of a few were to discourage those kind enough to offer their time and consideration in a helpful effort. Please don't underestimate the value of your help to those not directly participating.

Jodyko, you’ve just reminded me of a very important fact. Thank you. When I joined, the forum was often less than friendly. Worlds away from these great people here now. I lurked, like you. I read the posts and absorbed as much as I could, but I myself didn’t ask. Alamy, in all their wisdom, closed that forum, and after some time, reopened it minus the hateful ones. Then I began to be active on the forum and was no longer afraid to ask questions. I guess it’s fair to say Alamy gave the forum an attitude adjustment! :D

I need to remember that even when somebody asks our opinions, then bites us when we give them, there are others quietly taking our help on board and learning.

See, I just learned something from you!

I have to confess that I'm one of those "absorvers in the shadow"...thoroughly reading the forum and learning about stock photography. So I must say a big THANK YOU to all of you that spent your precious time answering and giving away your knowlegde and experience in the forum 👏👍

My sales in September was rotten, (1) following a very good August.  Every time I think I’m on the road to success, I’m humbled. That’s the nature of this business, it seems. Onward HO! (An Americanism)
