    Why does no one bother to sign these petitions??? Every one could use a little help everyone has a different story whatever they are we need support.

    Heya @Tylers73 - which petitions do you mean and on which site ? I personally do sign them if they are relevant and I can see the end result will help others, collectively we have a stronger voice than if we stood alone ;)

    agreed @Tylers73
    there does seem to be an apathy towards actually committing to supporting things.

    I try to sign most things related to D that i see on the forum but perhaps your topic raises the fact we don't put petitions in a prominent position or sub forum of their own so people know where to look for them to get signed

    I am tagging @Administrator and @Giverny to possibly investigate the best way forward to consolidate petitions to give them the best chance of succeeding with our vast membership.
