Respond to the post you mean to respond to!

OK, I'm on a mission to make this board a more streamlined and well-oiled machine. I mentioned yesterday that we need to educate each other to aviod repitition and annoyances.

(deep breath)
When you respond to a message, make sure you've got the message you want to respond to current on your screen before you hit the reply link. I can't count the amount of times I've gotten a response in my email that made absolutely no sense to what I had just posted. This is because someone is reading the whole thread before they post (presumably to see if someone has already posted their thoughts on the matter), and then they hit any of the 'reply' links. Well, it's great that your contributing, but the person you were wantin' to directly respond to will have to find your post by a stroke of luck. In the meantime, some cat like me is momentarily befuddled as to why you replied the way you did.

SO, when you've finished your reading and want to reply, navigate back to the exact message you want to respond directly to, and hit that 'reply' link.

(gasp!)
And don't forget to search before you post!
Thanks for your time![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Ppillard, talk to DannyL about this. This has been a thorn in his side too for quite some time.

I don't wanna talk to DannyL (no offense, Danny), he's already gotten the point a long time ago! I want to talk to everyone else who doesn't know what I'm talking about!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Respond to the post you mean to respond to!

This is not so much the fault of the people who post. It's not a very good system. I wasn't even aware that people got emailed posts. I don't and I'm sure a lot of other people don't either.

Re: Respond to the post you mean to respond to!

If you visit the BBS often why bother having your replys to your e-mail?? When i read a post,,, I am lazy.... I don't want to scroll all the way up top and click on the "Proper" Reply button.... So here's my quote to you...

"If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!!"

Peace out!!





-How many injuries or mishaps have happend after saying to you friends, "Hey, Watch this!!"
