IF YOU JUST RECEIVED A PM FROM ME THEN YOU NEED TO READ THIS CAREFULLY. If you did not receive a PM then just consider below FYI and remind new members, etc.

Lets all try to avoid posting inside more than 5 topics in one day unless you are contributing quality information. If you are in one thread it's fine to answer back-and-forth with members in an ongoing discussion, but when you go through the entire forum (replying to numerous topics at one sitting) just to say hello, or just to reply for the sake of replying, it just becomes an annoyance to other members.


Why does this become an annoyance ?

Many members "watch" certain topics and receive notification when someone posts there. These notifications come via e-mail. If you post in 10 topics then each member will receive 10 e-mail notifications and many will go to the site to read what you said! 10 notifications at one time is only fun for members if you are providing QUALITY INFORMATION.

I do not want to discourage anyone from being active in the forum, but it's just not always necessary to repond to every single topic in one day. That is unless you have a lot of good stuff to talk about! Remember that you are essentially CALLING-IN members to come to the site and read your posts.

I have already sent PMs to members this really applies to. If you did not receive one then you are fine. Just please pass on the word to others.

QUALITY INFORMATION usually consists of more than just a sentence or two. Quality information is what we deem "useful" content for users looking for information. Yes you can reply to people in short sentences if you are a part of a discussion or have a question about a topic. If you have an opinion about something please be specific and tell us "WHY" you feel a certain way, etc. Be descriptive, stay on topic, and make sure you think about what you are writing before you post.
