Default Policy Change for the Forums.

Ok people, as now decided amongst the Mod team, we've been too lenient on this matter.

Now this Rule takes into effect for the whole Forum.

Tkey i have seen so many posts in the hardware sections now that dont belong there. That is just 1 section. I have seen posts in the Audio area that belong in networking and so on. Just getting pretty bad. People post where there is activity to get answers. Which has to stop.

Many people wont. Only a small percentage of the members actually bother to read the updted set of rules in this area.

what if they are just confused and think they are posting in the right place?

eh, i don't know, lol

maybe a pre-post query like in preview..."your post will appear in xxx" are you sure this is correct? Press to confirm


etc

Default Re: Policy Change for the Forums.

For a new member i can see how they would be confused but most members who have been on this site for ant period of time know where they should post a topic.

Not that it is hard. Building, hardware, Windows, Audio, Network, Linux, Apple....

So whatever the topic pertains to post there. If it doesnt fit those then place it in OT.

Not that hard really. People are just posting them in places like OT and hardware to get them more attention and get resonses faster. Which is not right for the people who have legit questions in that area that a topic that doesnt belong there is getting resonses while they have problems.

At least that is how i feel about it.
