I just click on the 'Newest' tab and see all the forums.
Since there are only 10 (sometimes 11) forums that I look at, I start at the top (Class A) or the bottom (ATC) and work my way down (or up), looking at the current threads on each, clicking only on those threads that interest me.
It works for me.
As for the rules, I read them 10 years ago, and haven't looked at them since.
As for the moderators, I think they do a very good job, even though, IMO, they get a little over-zealous occasionally.

Now that the OP knows the "rules", and still insists that the rules are wrong - dead issue. I read the tt post in the class a, was wondering why it was there, now I know. OP, the important point is the knowledge fellow rv'ers are willing to share here on this forum. Did you get good answers in your original post(s)?

if its not your forum, its their rules, like it or not. rules is rules. if you dont like the rules, start your own forum and then we all can complain about competing forums. personally, i like this one.
Ok I apparently broke rv net rule #2 I didnt even no it was a rule untill now!! I posted on the class A forum to get help on a coverter. At the same time I posted it on the TT forum. to use all my resources!!I guess thats a no no!!! Im not sure why its such a big deal. you would think it would help every one to see your post. just maybe they know something we dont..or vice versa. sorry this just pi**ED ME OFF.
Senior member and you did not know double posting was against the forum rules?

Because think Its wrong!!! why does why does it matter? can someone tell me?
It doesn't matter. They just have some over zelous moderators that just love hitting their delete button.
These are not over zealous moderators. This likely has nothing to do with bandwidth. This company, for which the moderators are functioning, are providing a service. It is a managed service. This forum requires storage space, backups, indexing, garbage collection/compression and other maintenance issues. I believe the rule to be simply keeping the forum data base from growing exponentially and becoming unmanageable or storable. Anyone who has had to work with a forum and any of the above mentioned maintenance can tell you, this is a thankless job and quite a bit more happens behind the scene than most know. The OP understands that now.
My "Why make a big deal," question was because all of the above maintenance and the great info here is absolutely free. Whether I think their rules are heavy handed would have no bearing on anything. This is a free service with their rules, for their reasons and I can deal with it or not come here.
I am not trying to be rude. It is just a fact of running a web portal or forum.
