Hypothetical situation

April 30, 2003 - 1:54 am 3 Comments

Here’s a situation. You’re in dire financial straits. You’re a regular on a message board. Others on the board learn of your problems and send you a bunch of money ($100 per person, in some cases). Do you:

a) Thank each contributor personally
b) Thank each contributor publically
c) Make a blanket thanks publically without mentioning individuals

Just wondering what the etiquette is.

    I think the one-on-one route is best coupled with a blanket “thanks to all who have helped” post. But that’s just my opinion, and I could be wrong.

    Definitely “A”.
