Yes, now I see that. Need an additional pop up on that button to require choosing a sub-forum.

Better would be a "Post New Topic" right up in the banner to the left of "Forum Rules" and let it post to General or have a "select forum" dialog box.

Maybe it should be reworded?


Exactly! Most new members fail to explore forums BEFORE posting. Nor do they read rules and posting instructions.

Hell, look at how many people buy a new vehicle and never crack open the owner's manual![emoticon]

I've got to post something in forum posting and support because mine isn't in red block letters.

Just as a curiosity, why do you think so many threads, on a host of topics, are started in Forum Posting Help and Support? Is it through a default of some sort?


No, it is mainly because it appears right in one of the header lines....in RED and underlined.

That makes it too easy to get to......for everything.
Bonehead move on the part of the designers.

Of course, there are other reasons too.

Maybe they should put this Announcement READ BEFORE POSTING HERE! at the top of the first page of the Sub Forum

And of course Reading COMPREHENSION would help..but COLOR does catch the eye.

Someone new comes with a problem they want to get help and support with.

They want to post their problem to the forum.


In nice big letters right at the top they see the words Forum Posting and the other magic words Help and Support

It's obvious to me.
