Sorry,Jay--This is a place where people come and go--and have different skills--

If you post a roofing question and the roofers are all at work--you wait--Better a right answer in a few hours than a bad answer in a few minutes--

This isn't Google--real people come here to help others--
Also,some times a question just gets overlooked---
That's when you might want to' bump'- the post by adding another post--

A good sense of humor helps.too. And Pictures--Especially ones with a cat.

---I'll look for your post and see if I can get you an answer.---Mike--

Ayuh,... Just to add to what Mike said,...

The way a question is asked, 'n the Info provided, is sometimes a problem, when trying to come up with a plausible answer...

Some folks post a 3 word line, but expect detailed, paragraphs long answers...
Others expect the title to be read into the question,...
Titles should be something catchy, or atleast revelant to the question, 'n should Never be just "Help"...

Others will write complete Novels, without punctuation, or paragraphs, so it's Unreadable...
Atleast to ole farts such as myself...

Many times on this forum, there's questions from other parts of the world, so building practices, 'n language gets in the way...

Forums are Free advice,...
Take it for what it's Worth, 'n don't make the responders Work for that Free advice...

Duplicate threads, whether in 1 forum, or in multiple forums are another No-No...
All it does is lead to confusion for everybody....

I think what mike meant was to bump the THREAD by adding another post. In other words, reply to your own question to move it up to the top, which increases the chance to be seen. The best way to do this is to add some info that you might have omitted, or clarify your question a little.

Like Bondo said, don't start an entirely new thread, with the same question. it is confusing, and will more than likely end up getting deleted
Those who can, do...
Those who can't criticize on the internet

If you stick to one post it would be a lot less confusing, this is your third.!

Check your first one there are many post there already.


When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
