When starting a new topic, and not replying to a current topic, please select the "Add topic" option instead of just starting your topic at the end of another topic thread.
Simply doing a reply to a post is not really a reply if you are not "talking" to the original poster's question or topic. Please do not use the reply to ask a different question or start a new discussion.
Many times a topic post is tacked onto the bottom of an older topic thread and it is not a reply to that topic thread. A new topic should be started, instead.
This serves many purposes. First and foremost, it respects the original poster. When you tack your new topic thread, that is not a reply to the original topic, you are hijacking that original poster's thread.
Secondly, your topic will not be easily found, Your topic may be of interest to someone who did not read the topic you tacked on to. A tacked on topic change will not be viewed by those who were not reading the one you tacked on to, or hijacked.
This is courtesy to all members. If you do not know where to place your new topic, and it is bowed string related, please go to the Breakroom forum room and start it there. If it is not bowed string related, you can start it in the Off-topic forum room. I can move it later for you. I cannot just move a single post that has been tacked on to another topic thread and have it started as a topic by you. Whole topic threads can be moved, but a reply in a topic, not so much.
Please be wary of whether you are replying to a topic, or you are starting a new topic, and post accordingly.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and respecting of other members' posts.
