Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Summerrain started a wonderful thread for people to list details of their own animals and give information about their offer to look after other peoples' pets.
However, I've just been through it and there are quite a few comments which really don't belong in there. It all makes the thread unnecessarily long.
I'm considering taking all these posts out and putting them into a new Thread. What do you all think about it? Good idea, bad idea, all the same to me.

If anyone afterwards were to feel that their post REALLY belongs in the other Thread, they could report the post and have it put back again. Occasionally it might be difficult to work out what a post refers to - the dates would still be correct so with both Threads open, one could check back. Mostly, folk won't be reading these 'comment' posts anyway, which is why it might be an idea to shift them out.

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Longbyt,

I really appreciate your efforts to tidy up these various areas of the Forum; it's a mosty thankless task.

Regarding pets: I never read such threads so have no opinion one way or the other. Just go ahead and do whatever you think is appropriate.

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Move and not delete is something I like to here.
Sounds fine to me.

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Longbyt, whatever you think its appropriate, as long as the essence of the thread is not lost ie: its objective, how it works etc. It will definitely be neater if posts asking for other recommendations etc are removed.

I am happy to go back and edit the original post with clearer pointers, if need be.

PS: and dont listen to what grumpy Uncle Max said about it being a thankless job, there's at least one person here who appreciates it. Thank you.

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Normally I accept that the Pet Lovers are responsible beings and their section of the forum needs VERY little modding. I only looked in because I noticed someone looking for a pet sitter for payment had sneaked its way onto the Pet Sittiing Network Thread. I wanted to say they should add details of their pet etc. as on the other posts and then saw how many 'non-details' posts there were.

- Any other info about your pets needs will be great as well. This is for other owners to see if there is a match similar both pets lifestyles, before contacting you to pet sit.
Perhaps it would be an idea to edit the first post to say how the prospective owner should get in touch with the propective 'partner' who might be able to pet-sit for them. ('Partner' implies a certain responsibility or commitment to do the same thing for someone else. Whether it happens or not is of course not checked on but it might deter folk from looking at this as a 'free sitter' area if they feel morally obliged to put themselves on the list too). Or maybe it is obvious to everyone how it works. My pet (two-legged) usually comes on holiday with me so I don't have a problem here.

I've shortened the time of the poll as it doesn't seem to be very controversial. If the balance doesn't tip in the other direction, as soon as it has run, I'll whip that stuff into the other (new) Thread and I suggest that anyone seeing a 'stray post' afterwards PM me and I'll take it out.

I forgot - can anyone think of a very short phrase to add to the title to make it clear that comments without 'pet info' don't belong in the Sitting Network Thread?

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

Dear all pet lovers,
Hi I just arrived with my dog and family one month ago and a newbie. My very first post here and I am interested in this network to help one another look after pets since it is difficult to look for pet resort here. Can someone explain how it works?
Merci
Lynn

Re: Comments in the Pet Sitting Network Thread

HI

I have an afghan hound and I would like to go away for 2 weeks
he is 3 years old, likes long walks , very nice personality
I need someone who knows how to handle this breed because they have a great sens for justice hence they need to be handled with a lot of love .
anyone interested ?
he is well raised ....funny character...big hound 40 kilos
I would love to find someone privat ...Earley (my best friend) doesnt like crowds ,cities....he is a sight hound and can see up to 3 kilometers...

His temperament is typical Afghan Hound he can be aloof and dignified, but he is happy and clownish when playing. This breed, as is the case with many sighthounds, has a high prey drive and may not get along with small animals. Early is very intuitive and a great companion.


The breed has a reputation among some dog trainers of having a relatively slow "obedience intelligence" ....he is more like a cat
thanks
