Perhaps for the benefit of newer forum members, could I please remind you to make sure that you consider carefully before posting a new thread?
We're seeing an increase in the number of threads posted in the wrong place, and particularly in Speakers Corner. This area of the forum is the place for topics of general interest, and shouldn't be used for threads that relate to problems with hardware or software, or disputes with suppliers etc.
When I see wrongly placed threads I'll move them, and when I do that I always post a message in the thread, so if you started it you'll get an email, and can find your thread in it's new home. You won't get the notification if you unchecked the notification option box when you started the thread, so if it's not where you left it, take a look in other forum areas.
to start a general discussion about the forum areas.
We're going to launch a redesigned version of the site soon, and I'm sure there'll be plenty to talk about then. This was simply a reminder about using the best forum area for different types of content.
I think I have posted about 3 times in the last year on the wrong Forum area. Nobody more annoyed than myself for doing so[except the FE of course.] The wife keeps telling me I keep repeating myself. The wife keeps telling me I keep repeating myself. The first sign of demensia creeping in maybe. I will definately try harder not to do it again as it should not happen in the first place. So Guilty as charged m'lord.
Hi.I was thinking it was an age thing but have came to the conclusion it is an easy mistake to make. Just a matter of checking that you are on the correct forum area at the time. The problem is that you cannot remember shifting area's in the first place. Never mind the men in the white coats just don't go into the bright light at the end of the tunnel.
