I think I know where your coming from. I have people wanting direction on some of my cake. I'm always glad to send, but then I go to see their pictures or post and there is none. Some of them are members for years. I wonder whey they don't share their talent with use. I think sometimes they are here for themselves only.

Oh yes! That thought has crossed my mind more than once as well...............and what a great source/force we are to tap into when you think we have over 80,000 members to sway into helping some self-serving cause or similar - things completely unrelated to cake!

Well I'll just come out and say it... I read a thread recently where someone who had very few posts to begin with used the whole thread to encourage us to vote for her for something or other -- it just seemed like a blatant campaign on her part. Is that the sort of thing you are talking about?

sue_dye,

I know exactly what you mean. I do not like that, either. There are what, 70,000 members here, but only 300-400 of us participate regularly.

I have also noticed that there are some newbies who are obviously not new to cake decorating, as their first post asks about complicated cake work, fondant inlays, chocolate wraps, etc. A little intro when they ask for help with these techniques, especially about their experience level, would be nice. It's easy to assume that just because it is a person's first post, that means that they're new to decorating, but I could be so very wrong. I would rather discourage someone with very little experience from taking on difficult techniques without some training, than to have them become totally discouraged with the outcome, then give up on cake decorating altogether.

Okay - I'm not cluing in to what the originaly posted meant by this thread ...

Everyone seems to have their own ideas as to what 'being used' means to them on CC. I honestly don't feel that this thread can go anywhere but downhill when it is said in that context.

People have asked me for advise, instructions, patterns, recipes, etc., and I'lm glad to help where I can ... and I have done the same. That to me is what CC is all about - people coming together to share their knowledge and in the process learn from others.

If it's the case, then so be it. Ignore it and it'll go away.

This can't go anywhere positive, so just leave it alone.

Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, please!

Yes, we could be a huge force to be reckoned with if we made a move 'en force', so I can see how someone would be tempted to try it. (vote for me) I mean, there are hundreds of brilliant and influential people here! (I'm the bomb) And people respond to powerful groups! (Vote for me) Ok, I am just kidding. But I know where you're coming from. (I rule) I appreciate that you don't want to say anything specific to spare feelings, etc. (Is it me?) That is wise of you!! (It's me, isn't it?) Well, thanks for letting us vent this feeling. (Oh my God, they're onto me! I'm outta here!) icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Melvira- You CRACK ME UP!! icon_lol.gif

I'm always trying to be very conscious of how much I contribute vs. how much I ask- I try to only ask things after I've researched the site thoroughly for the answer to see if it's already been posted. I would hope that someone would PM me if they ever felt I was taking advantage...

I'm sorry... funny? Did I say something funny? (OMG... they can read my thoughts!!!!!!!! icon_eek.gif )

Edited to add: Hey wonderbuns... it depends on what you are studying. I did graduate with an IT degree with a 4.0, but I slept with a LOT of teachers! KIDDING!!!! icon_lol.gif
