There seems to be a lot of new forum posts being made, asking questions that have been asked many times and answered many times, there is a great "search" feature for the forums ( its right above this post )  so please check that first, put in a general 1 or 2  words of what you are looking for answers on ie fur loss, bedding, fighting, you can even put a members name in and find everything they have answered if you wish !

and as 99% of the topics are still open, you can ask a further question on an old  thread if needed.

Also please follow the sites "one photo per album" rule.

Be specific! Usually if you type in 'new hamster', for example, you will get up to 100 replies! However, if you type 'new hamster not eating' you might get a narrower and more selective view. Depending on what you want-?

 

Please do not create forums with incredibly obvious questions or un-informative, vague titles.

One Photo Per Album Please :)

Try to post topics in the appropriate section, and please use appropriate titles. "Please help" is not a very informative title. Specify the problem in the title.

Hope you enjoy the site!

Agreed, it seems like the same questions are asked over and over. This will avoid, double, triple, quadruple posting. Thanks, Dukeslady :)

I hope it helps, maybe some members did not know the search feature is there, and some times it is hard to answer the same thing week after week !

 

so everyone try it out, just put anything in the search box, and I guarentee you will find out something !

This seems to happen in every forum.. The best solution for this is someone like a mod posting in the topic saying "This has been asked before, check out this topic" and lock the thread. Then after about a month or so delete the thread.

So should we do it this way then ...as I personally give a small reply - then suggest looking at the older posts ,but yes many are repeated..and members are still going to be inclined to ask regardless...  Tracy:)

Yes, as there seem to be times when several hamsters seem to have the spinning gene, and so you should just say, "Check out this other topic..." And several times that hamsters are having diarrhea problems, etc, etc,...

Hm, i just noticed this post, and i totally agree. The search feature is one of the best things on this site that is commonly ignored! It is also the most organized.

We have anew litter of robo babies that are about 2 weeks old.  The mother somehow got out (I think my daughter left the door open) and our cat got her.  Will the babies be able to survive at this point without her?

Hi, CreativeMoments, this question needs to be asked in the forum, but as it's kind of an emergency... I'll answer it here as well, but still make a new topic. The babies may not survive, unless you hand rear them. Ask The Weaver (moderator/member) about that.

Also, since we posted this topic, I've added the Google Site Search on the left hand Navbar.

This searches a much broader section of the site and forums (and is more reliable, as I'm sure most of you who have used the forum search will appreciate). :)

Well I agree that we should also just delete the questions after they have been answered or solved. I do agree that many of the same questions are already answered in topics and on the site. But deleting would make the site less cluttered and possibly faster.
