As a member who ghosted through the forums for a year and a half before actually posting from my account, I don't consider this post to be offensive or deterring.

In fact, I think it's necessary. I didn't ask any questions, but I was here constantly. Any time I saw a food I was considering, a treat, a treatment, a vet, a breeder, etc. Pretty much every question has already been asked and answered by someone else. People need to be encouraged and reminded to look at the stickies, since they're usually clearly titled and very informative. 99% of the questions I had were easily answered by using the search bar or reading a sticky. It's really not that hard and people are still asking the same, very basic questions over and over again. If something hasn't been asked before, or wasn't answered to your expectations or needs, there's nothing wrong with asking again.

That being said, it's very important that every question, no matter how simple, is answered politely and without hostility. As was previously mentioned, a snooty or rude response to an honest question can discourage someone from asking something else, but it's easy to politely direct towards a sticky.

I also agree that if they're not looking at stickies or using the search tool or using the site:hedgehogcentral.com search narrower on google, then they're not likely to stumble across this post, so it's not really a concern.

At any given time there will be 2 or 3 threads about "does my hedgehog have mites?" "Is this a good food?" "How can I make my hedgie to stop hating me?" And then several about not needing heating because their home thermostat is set to 72 degees.

The problem is that often really serious issues can get pushed to the bottom. I do try to answer any question that I have experience with.

Sure seeing this may "scare" someone away, but us old timers are just commiserating with our friends. This thread is not going to come up in a search for any medical issue. There are many people on here I consider my friends because we have gone thru so many of the same experiences and they are always here to give advice and support.

The information on this board about raw feeding and nutrition cannot be gained anywhere else.

Believe me, the people here will be around to help when your hedgie is seriously ill and you have to make decisions.

Being new to the community its hard to find answers to questions when there are so many I have. I keep having to look up part of the question and if I do find a thread that has part of my question and I want to add on it turns out the thread is old. It is much easier to ask all my questions in a lump together and you can read and answer what you can.

On the other hand not taking your pet to the vet is horrible. Especially when you decided to take the commitment of having that pet. And I totally get your rant for that. That is someone being stingy with their money and not truly giving love and care for there new family member.
