Hello everyone. My first year at keeping bees and I can attest that ignorance is bliss! Post bliss isn't so much fun though. I probably should have joined a forum sooner, but then you need to get some experience to ask all the good questions.
welcome to the forum. Fire away with the questions you might get 10 different answers but the good thing is none of them are wrong. What works for some may not work for you but you will have enough ideas to form your own opinion of how you need to tackle the issue.
One thing I should point out, I'm a forum moderator on an unrelated forum. So far, of the two posts that I've tried to make, the original posts don't seem to post! What's the deal? Doesn't seem conducive to keeping people on a forum if they can't reply. My re posts sure weren't as jovial.
I have had that problem in the past I find that I usually hit the preview button instead of submit. Make sure when you post the screen comes up saying your message has been posted and you should be good to go. Let us know if this is not the case and you still have problems.
