Please post in the appropriate thread
once again you will all hear me say please read the forum faq and rules!!!
just today i read 2 different threads that had posts that had no relationship to the initial thread.
- - person "a" creates a thread called "how to fix a leaky pipe" - a number of people start to respond to that thread with ideas on how that could be done - person "b" then posts "the weather is cold today, my car wont start" - people who have been previously posting to the original thread start to get confused - then people start to respond to the request from person "b", forgetting all about person "a" - now person "c" makes a post "i know i had the same thing" - what is the same thing? the leaky pipe? the cold weather? car not starting?
while this example is a bit exaggerated it does point up the problems that can and have happened when people start making posts that do not belong in a given thread.
it really isnt difficult to post to the proper thread. and if you dont know where, you can
1 ) read the faq
2 ) post in the forum support category forum help and troubleshooting
i would bet that over 50% of the members here had no idea about that category and how it could help.... hope you do now.
