I hope my tone isn't coming off as "spazzing out." I'm just giving you my point of view. It seems much more obvious to you what I should have done, but that is because you posted all the information so of course it seems very clear to you. It's a lot more confusing for someone who is trying to keep up with the boards and doesn't know exactly what you're thinking.

Honestly, it never crossed my mind to search for something that I had no idea would be on the boards. I posted on here because you ignored my first PM, and I didn't know why.

I try to keep my questions to a bare minimum because this is the response I seem to get every time I ask something. Like, “honestly, how could you ask such a stupid question?”

I do really appreciate Cascade for pointing this out, without making me feel like I didn't study for some FF test on the rules. Otherwise I feel like no one would have told me.

Next time I have a question I will try a search on it first. I just want to let you guys know that I feel slightly attacked and made to feel stupid, because it seems like your accusing me of being too lazy to go search for something when that really wasn't even the case.

I honestly just thought there was something wrong with my horse’s page and I was pointing it out so you could fix it. I never thought that it was because you were fazing out the GOTs, and so it never crossed my mind to search for anything on missing GOTs since my other 2 year olds both have theirs.

Again please don’t misconstrue my tone. I’m not trying to come off as being disrespectful or sarcastic. I realize where you’re coming from, and next time I will try and find the answer before asking.

But I also hope you can realize where I am coming from, and that it’s not always easy to know all the rules and know exactly what you guys are thinking. And just because someone asks a question that seems stupid to you doesn’t necessarily mean they were just being too lazy to go find it themselves.

For the record, I didn't "ignore your PM", I just hadn't had a chance to reply to it before you asked - again - on the forum, and Jade answered your question.

I suppose the main reason I feel that it should be "obvious" about random horses not receiving GOTs is that we just had a 2yo auction a month ago where almost 150 2yos were sold...of those, a good 125+ were randomly gnerated and had no GOTs (one of which being the 2yo in question you wanted us to "fix").  So, just by browsing the auction catalog, it's pretty easily apparent that a small percentage of the horses (those with in-game bloodlines) had GOTs, the rest didn't.

As for my claiming you are/were spazzing out, that's in response to the "I have x, y, and z reasons to be exempt from reading the forum and remembering what I read".  It's not a requirement that people read the forum, but if the information is available on the forum, we kind of expect people to look there before creating another thread (on the forum) about the same issue.  Same goes with the FAQ, Newbie Guide, etc.  I'll freely admit that all of the information that's floating around on the forum is hard to keep track of, and when I get time, I will overhaul the FAQ so that it includes the Newbie Guide info and all the various forum threads, but right now, my priority is race code.

Note: I am locking this thread, as it was never meant to be a place to list all your bugs/issues.  Please post new threads about those (in this To Do List section) so that they can be easily tracked.
