I'm sure I am not alone in our little green line report card "dilema". I use the word dilema for lack of something better right now. First of all - until quite recently, I totally forgot they existed. Pretty much everyone has them so viewing the green lines below our names is something I do not think to take notice of. They were pointed out to me by a friend one day but even that pointing out was something I came by quite by chance. I forgot about the points - period. In my search for something entirely different, I happened on the page where you see your points and was quite pleasantly surprized at the same time as feeling bad because I do not remember to give people their due for a good post. I think we all need to remember too that a fit of temper doesn't mean you slam someone with a red line. Wait until you calm down before you quickly hand out the bad marks. There is a difference between feeling ticked off at a post and feeling that the post is way out of line.
Anyway, what is the protocol for dealing with receiving good or bad reports? Do you simply smile and enjoy the report? Do you publicly thank the person who gave it to you or do you PM them and say thanks or write it on their wall for all to view?
For all of you who have given me a green line - I thank you for it. I'm not so sure I am very grateful for my thin red line but - oh well. I apologize to those who should have received a green line and did not and tell you that in the future, I will try to be more diligent in handing them out when they are due.
