NZBF Do you read the NZ Bees site but dont yet contribute?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to pop this topic in here with the beginner beekeepers because its the majority of new beekeepers that read the site and gather information to progress their learning, but feel its a daunting prospect to ask questions or provide assistance to others, so lets start by giving a few pointers.

 

I'm not experienced enough to contribute.

Sure it may be daunting to offer your opinion when all these experienced beekeepers who have been on the forum for years dominate the discussions with their opinions and ways, but while they can occasionally bark, they don't usually bite. So what can you do to join the party?

A mellow way of introducing yourslef is to share your experiences, rather than asking a question or supplying an answer. Tell us how you do your beekeeping, describe your setup, tell us about something unusual. As your confidence builds and you start to form "friendships" you may like to then ask questions or even offer your input on how to do something to help out others. We're only as diverse as our contributors at the end of the day, so its important you feel like you can contribute.

 

Complete beginners can start here with our "ask something safely" scheme

 

Some hints and tips on using the various parts of the site, can be found at New to NZ Beekeepers Forum

And the guidelines and tutorials can be found in HELP

Our international friends, whilst keeping up to date with happenings in NZ, can tell us whats going on in their part of the world using the international beekeeping forum

https://www.nzbees.net/forums/forum/28-international-beekeeping-forum/

 

If you have never used a forum before or can't work out how to use the site, then we have a new "I'm stuck how do I use the website?" Q&A section 

https://www.nzbees.net/forums/forum/48-im-stuck-how-do-i-use-the-website/

 

If you are into Top bar Hives, Long hives or hybrid construction, treetment free or natural beekeeping,  then we have revised our section on Alternative Beekeeping Practices
https://www.nzbees.net/forums/forum/35-alternative-beekeeping/

 

And finally if you just want to say hello, or just have a yarn then join us in General Discussion

I've already fixed one, that one I left in as a test.  The Boss has already been referred to as a nutter  in a related thread.
