READ BEFORE POSTING: SPECIAL RULES FOR THIS BOARD
« on: April 16, 2013, 01:20:40 PM »
This is a no criticism zone. 

You cannot give people a hard time for having a training problem here.  We all make mistakes and we all have training problems that we need help to resolve.  The first step is recognizing you have a problem and the next is asking for help.  Every person who recognizes they have a problem and are asking for help deserves respect for doing the right thing, even though it may be hard to admit they've made a mistake or are having a problem.  Every person seeking help with a training issue deserves a thoughtful and considerate response from the community.

At times, people with training issues WILL be referred to a professional trainer.  There are simply some issues that cannot be resolved through internet based communication.  However, sometimes a little advice, a different way of looking at it, a different technique or approach, is all a person needs to resolve the problem themselves.  That is the purpose of this board.

If you have a training question that you are embarrassed to ask, you may contact the moderator of your choice (or a friend) and ask them to post the question anonymously on your behalf.  For example, a moderator might say "A member has asked the following question:" and then copy and paste your question without saying that it came from you.
