choose carefully

Hi all. I have recently been shifting around posts to appropriate topic forums. I know sometimes it is not easy to decide which forum to post in. But do please take just a little thought. If a post about an engine problem is posted in the Cat forum, chances are, very few of the mechanical guy's are ever going to see it for instance. So please take some time and give it just a little thought before you post.
Thanks.

It is possible my thread about SCREEN NAMES & BOAT NAMES should be moved? I will trust your excellent judgement where to move it to. It is under mono hull right now. Probably someplace else it will get more attention..............THANKS

Actually as long as you smile and spell it correctly you are on pretty good footing.

With my pore speeling, I probably wouldn't notice if it was spelt wrong anyway.

Kiata, you have done everything correctly to make a post. You just need to choose where and what for your next. It could be a good idea to post in say the "Meets and Greets" section and introduce yourself. Otherwise, if you have a question, choose a category that best suits the question and post. If you got the category wrong, don't fret, one of us may choose to shift it to a better suited location. There is not much you can do wrong here that will get you told off. Only abuse or calling names etc will get you told off.

Thanks for the reply.

Where do I find the "Choose a category" option box? I must not be on the right page.

Re:choose carefully

Yes Buddy, the point you have raised is the one to think. There are some people who don't even think what they are writing. Read the entire post and then post.
