I'd agree with that one Cheri! I have an iPhone that I use for texting, a very occasional phone call, to do a look-up when I'm outside, and check OB in the event I need to do something. It's too small for anything else. I'm used to a BIG monitor and more content that can be shown on a phone screen.

I agree with you and Cheri both! I'm not old, but am rather old school in my way of doing things. Phone is for phoning, messaging and reading stuff on the go. I want a small-ish phone to fit in my small hand and even smaller jean pockets. If I want to watch videos on the sofa, I have a tablet. For everything else (emails, editing photos, orchidboard, gaming...) I have a desktop PC with a nice large screen and comfy desk chair.


Though big updates to the forum would be nice just to fix the likely gaping security holes...

I haven't read the whole thread, but I've read enough to know that I'm less likely to bother answering or commenting on anything. I can scratch getting more active in orchid forums again off my retirement to-do list.

It is very sad that some postings in this thread could discourage one of the most knowledgeable members of the Board! Your comments are among those for which I have the MOST respect! I hope that you will reconsider.

I fully agree with Roberta's comment above! Yes, the thread is completely off topic (and maybe it should be moved to that sub forum), but it it stayed generally polite, was insightful (at least for me, from my admin perspective), and it can be enjoyable to discuss non orchid things. I do hope you'll stay with us for the other 99% of orchid related posts!

and i would fourth, even tho my opinion is inconsequential, biodiversity is good and great. forums are made better when more people post, imo, even if it sarcastic drivel like my posts usually are. so please donít stop posting!

as a newb i looked around the webs and tried several forums (im the online techs half of the growing team) and this was the most organic, laid back, yet informative of the orchid forums i found. it would be a real shame if the board slowed or died, i would then be forced to look at endless pics of people hybridizing cattleyas and vandas. maybe someone knows of another orchid discussion page similar to this, but i donít think it exists. and i certainly am not about to start going into the german orchid forums! no offense, but that pool is too deep for me, and the water here at ob seems just right

In the tone of the OP in this thread, I don't think I have any fancy title, and probably no purdy liddle flowers by my name, and you can think me a noob if you like (I really don't care about that), but my oldest orchid is a vanda I've had more than 28 years, and a number (also vandas) of others about that old. So, if you wanna disregard my comments on culture, thinking I'm a simple noob, then go right ahead. I'll continue growing my stuff.
I like Ray's take on culture advice - what works for me may not work in other areas; you need to know your conditions, and pay special attention to 'micro-climates' in your growing areas, too. What works in one corner, may not work in the opposite one, and only you can know your conditions that well.

I'll echo three or four other members above in hoping you'll tell us what it was about this thread that has turned you off to the OB?

You've been a member here for a very long time, and as far as I recall, you've always made knowledgeable, thoughtful posts.

Please tell us? I will not be offended if you say it was one of my posts, but I think, when a long-time member says he is not going to post here anymore and does not say why, we are all left confused.

I have been wondering why this thread continued so long after the OP changed the first post. The subsequent replies didn't match the original post anymore. Personally, I'd like to see the whole thread scrubbed. If it chased away a long-time member, how do you think newbies will react? Just my
