All the forums/topics here are pretty much free formats. Put aside the Forum rules that must be followed what members use as topic names can be very helpful.
In some categories, I have found almost the identical forum topic:
Have you had Acupuncture
Does Acupuncture help
(those are NOT the real names of topics, but some may match)
Then you read those topics and they are all basically asking the same question. So sometimes the responses have to be given in all topics. That is not a good example of time management.
What I am suggesting is that before you create a new TOPIC
look through that Category to see if there are other topics that sound similar. No sense recreating the wheel if you question/story/situation can fit into one of the existing topics.
