@Coley Looking back at that thread you started that I think you are referring to, I think maybe it could have just got buried and went unnoticed- that happens every once in a while and it just takes posting on it again to get some feedback. It could have also been because it looked like you did the assignment correctly and was just reporting your thoughts on it rather than asking for feedback or asking questions- and in that case people might have felt they had nothing to add to help you. I hope it doesn't keep you from making threads in the future.
@BichonBistro Keep up the good work! Perspective can be a beast to get comfortable with. You'll get there.
