Default WHAT FORUM DO I POST TO???(or how to keep your threads from being moved)

Okay-you probably have not noticed, but MANY people are posting almost everything to 3 forums:
General Discussion
Everyday Chit Chat
Demo Chit Chat (if you are a demo)

Then I (and the other mods/administrators) need to go through and move things around, and then answer the people who say
"Hey-Where did my post go?"

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO here is a reminder:

Start Here-a place for new members to introduce themselves and the veterans to welcome them in. I always love seeing new people who live near me.

Announcements-BIG announcements go here-Breaking News as it were about the site or SU, or stamping in general.

General Discussion-a catch all for when you want to talk stamping but no other category seems right

Weekly Challenges-keep up with all the wonderful challenges posted here

Stampin' 101-this is a great place to ask questions like what is the difference between _______ and ____________, or how do I ____________ (emboss, use aquapainters, etc.)

Techniques and Templates-a more specific area for actual how to's with directions/patterns/templates

Swaps-well, for swapping (and read the great guidelines for members and the hostesses there-really helpful)

Everyday Chit Chat-TV, current events, funny things that go on in your life that aren't Stamping related

Buy/Sell/Trade-um, obvious I think-please make sure to read the BST guidelines BEFORE posting

Site Suggestions & Questions-WOW-for many people they neglect this section-so knock the dust off of it and check it out when you have a problem here on the boards of a technical nature. I know Jenn, Beate, and Daven all check this area frequently to see where there are isues-and this is the right forum in which to do so. PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE look through the section a bit before starting a new thread-you may have a similar issue that others have gotten responses to already that could be just the ticket to help you out.

I am going to be merging a lot of threads together, a cool new feature of the site. So if two (or more) people start topics that are the same, they will be put into one thread together. It is time consuming to do, but will help responses to similar situations or questions stay together. To help us out, please poke around and do some searching if you think a question you have might have been asked or answered already.

I am also busy moving things to the right/appropriate forums. If you think your post has been moved, click on your name and then bring you your profile. You can see what threads you have started or posted to and check to see where they might be now in case they are moved or merged.

Thanks so much!!!!

Thanks. Sometimes I wonder why we have the general discussion and the stamping 101 forums. I hate to take the time to look at both. Then I remember that this isn't a "we" -- this isn't my site!! So, I appreciate the reminders.

It is tricky to keeo things sorted out sometimes.
I think of Stampin 101 as a basic "How do I..." or "What is..." questions section (not exclusively of course, but in a nutshell). So if there are kind of basic how to questions, they go there, while Techniques & Templates are for more specific technique questions.

To me the general forum is more like the catch-all if it doesn't go anywhere else.

Thank you to all who helped put those tips together & for "stickying" this!

I love to keep things organized and am a newbie to this forum, so I do appreciate it! I know that nothing is always black in white, though, and people shouldn't take it personally if they have a thread moved.

I was wondering if one of the mods could please copy the first post and sticky it in the Site Suggestions Forum?

Cheers!

While I understand the thought bhind it, it makes for a very "messy" board. If you don't find you are getting responses after you have been patient, then post a "bump" to teh thread and it will move it back to the top.

Question Why do I have a title under my name?

When I post something, I have "Cardstock Collector" under my name. Does anyone know how I can remove this, or how it even got there?

Thanks!

Oh I get it... makes things a bit clearer for us newbies. Here I was just reading stuff and replying to whatever I felt like replying to. Give me a little time, I'll eventually pick up on the ways.

I know what you mean! I love all the new forums - so organized! But just a little daunting at first.

Oh Britta...we new a brand new tutorial on where to post! And do you think you could include photos since I'm a visual learner????

oh geez-pics as well? LOL

What I do is think about the post I have and then look at the forums-each one has a little descriptor underneath and I try and match them up that way. I am still getting to know them as well

Britta,

I am very new to this website and I'm having a problem learing how to navigate. Could you give me the steps to getting to the forum I want and then posting a message to that forum?
Thanks for any help.

ummmm someone moved our thread 'The Daily Chatter' to fun and games, it has been in everyday chi chat since May and all it is is a place for us all to chat about everyday life, it is not jokes or games.

Maybe an update to this post is in order. I didn't know it was so against the rules to post polls here regardless of what they are about.
