The lack of a "post update" feature kinda makes posting here for advice difficult...

We had a survey a while back and the consensus was that old posts should be able to die...*G*

Just remember to use the e-mail option when you post a question...

And use the search feature first when pondering a question to ask...it works great..

I and the others who answer a lot of the questions here usually have our browsers set to 100 or 200 posts in a window which goes back a day or two...so we'll see them..

Also, be descriptive in you post title...I tend to skip the "need help right now" posts and other generic queries...

Having said that, I voted for the bump feature...but was out-voted..

I was wondering the same thing myself. But looking at the volume of posts it would not really matter, a post is going to be sent down hill quickly in here. But I am wondering about the spell checker, OK it lets me know that I misspelled a word. But I have to look it up myself. Rangerforum.com has a spell checker that gives suggestions to your misspelled words. fd

Those that know it all are willing to learn something new, those that think that they know it all don't know anything.

Yeah, I still use the Pocket Dictionary which resides next to my computer for spelling...

I voted for the bump idea because many folks don't use the search feature and ask the same question over...if we had a bump feature, I could find the original thread and bump it back to the top a promote a new conversation of the original material as well as give the questioner a more complete answer...

Usually, I end up doing the search myself and posting the results as part of my answer...that seems to work ok...

The volume here since the change has been enormous....we're doing 20K or so posts per month now...

I'm not quite sure if Post bumping means that when a post gets a new thread, it gets bumped up above any that haven't in the last... minute?,,, 12 hours?... 24 hours? If that's bumping, I think it would be real useful if a 24 hour time frame was used... yeah even a 12 hour would be as well.

I prefer the "bump" feature as well, because it seems to prevent double posting of similar topics.

Luddites. What a bonza term. Haven't heard that for yonks
The labor party here has a moto "Vote early and vote often"
Did you guys vote??
If you did , well you can't win them all.
If you didn't , you have no grounds for comment.
BTW I voted for posts to go to the top !!

Hi, Two great pieces of advice here:

Just remember to use the e-mail option when you post a question...

And use the search feature first when pondering a question to ask...it works great..

Thanks Pat

And I want the old posts to stay put so I can go find them when I want, just like the old forum!

It would be a shame to have passed the test but to have missed the lesson.
