I think this is a great site and I have enjoyed answering people's question, but there a couple of changes I need to have happen for me to continue contributing. The problem is it is taking far too long for me to answer these questions, and I simply do not have the time. However, I think a few changes could serve everyone involved better.
Here are the ideas...
1. Formatting is extremely important- PLEASE START WITH ALL THE BACKGROUND INFORMATION. THEN AT THE END OF THE EMAIL, NUMBER EACH QUESTION YOU HAVE FOR ME AND KEEP THESE QUESTIONS TOGETHER. What has been happening is I have to sort through each email for the questions, which makes it very easy for me to miss some of the questions.
2. If you want to respond to a person's question, that is fine. There have been some good thoughts. Just keep your response short, three to four sentences maximum. If you need more room, contact the person privately, or start a new thread. It takes me too much time to sort these responses from questions, and sometimes I disagree with the responses. I do not have time to correct some of the long responses.
That is about it. I really enjoy being involved with Epic- it is definitely a great group of people. But if this format is not followed I simply will not have the time to respond to questions. I will just stop responding.
So please help me so I can help all of you. If this format is followed, I should be able to check the site at least every week, which is more often than I could last winter.
Also, sometimes it is easier to ask questions on the phone. You are welcome to call me at my shop with questions, as long as they are not too long. The number for Boot Fixation is 970-453-8546. I am even happy to call back if I am either not at the shop or just cannot talk.
Let's stay in touch,
