A quick thank you to those who have answered your question or searched high and low to find you an answer is VERY much appreciated. When a request or question is posted surely it is not a huge sacrifice to say thank you to those who tried to answer your question. If your question wasn't exactly answered then try to clarify it and everyone will try again, I'm sure. Those that did the searching then know they didn't search for someone who 1) never came back to check or 2) more or less expected everyone to find their answer with no appreciation of it.
This may seem like a petty thing - except to those who did, sometimes hours, worth of searching.
ISO = in search of (when you are searching for a recipe
REC = REC at the beginning of your post, i.e., REC Chicken Pot Pie, tells everyone that you posted a recipe for chicken pot pie versus ISO Chicken Pot Pie
TNT = Tried N True lets everyone know you have tried this recipe and more or less think it's good
