    ... or are we seeing less effort to directing threads to the proper area? For example...repair issues should and some modding situations should be in the Luthier section... Vid & Audio have a section... Ect... Some of the categories seem to be getting cluttered up with non-related material.

    Hey, it may just me, but how about looking at the subject of threads and seeing how your post relates...?

    OR... does anyone care?

    You're not seeing things. I've noted the same thing where folks post all sorts of stuff in entirely incorrect categories. Being a grumpy old man, I just figured that many folks don't even bother to read the section much and just post to whatever out of habit or just plain being lazy.:dunno: But that's just me I guess... Old grumpy guy and all...
    What? No, leave me alone. I gotta go take my meds now....:)

    See it all the time. Some people here obviously need an IQ test before they should be allowed to post anything... Either they don't give a **** or they are just plain stupid!

    Hi Rick! It's slowly getting better... In a fibreglass cast and able to walk on it. Another 2 weeks with the cast then lots of physical therapy.

    Yes, I care, and thank you for making me check my work.

    But I'm almost as old as the Worm, and definitely more grumpy - and a teacher.

    I am confused......and not right, so there ya go....however are we talking initial thread start up or the ramblings and meanderings that various threads take?
    i.e. the question about Alex's ankle above.

    Not arguing just asking.

    It's everywhere. What cracks me up is the preface:
    "I know this doesn't belong here, but the proper forum doesn't get as much traffic, and i want to make sure it gets as many replies as possible."

    Yeah. Did that on purpose. I was curious how Alex was healing, but could have just a easily PMed the question here or on FB. Just felt a bit ornery.

    So are we on topic then...or way off? IS this 2 wrongs making a right?
    3 rights make a left.....so carry the 2......crapa... SixString is NOT going to be happy with my mathicals I feel......perhaps I should go color in the corner. ;)

    I am probably at fault for a bit of that. Mainly some confusion of whether I should post thing's in the Luthier Corner section, or the Other Guitar section. I believe I had posted something even in the Backstage section once that may have belonged in the "Luthier" or "Other" categories.....
    This all might be due to my amateur ability to assemble or repair an instrument with the tool's at hand, compared to my lack of ability and tooling to actually truly build an instrument from raw materials. While I do have the ability to fabricate some rough parts here and there, I am still an untrained, self taught "back-room mechanic" with vision's of grandeur for at least a few moment's in time LOL....
    Pass me some crayons please :)

    I tried sending it to eS.G., but USPS and US Customs marked it Return To Sender, as they know he's a crayon addict...

    Well being the resident injun'/old coot combination I sorta fall into an odd category I guess.... But then again most of us do anyway huh?:dunno:
    So below sums up as to how far I can go with things as I'm just a regular member type and a kookie one at that!:run:

    [​IMG]

    Now as far as crayons, does Alox/Beeswax mixture for cast bullet lube count? I mean there is 50% wax of sort involved. Maybe. Sorta?:dunno:
    Oh fiddlesticks, I'm goin' for another cup of coffee. Ya'll figure it out. Too complicated for the old fart and my brain's startin' to smoke!:rofl:

    Or a ticket depending on the one way setup

    I thought that was why they pay you moderators the big money...to clean sloppy people's mess and move it to the correct area?

    Lemmie get this right .. If folks post in the wrong sections and we then relocate them to where they should of gone in the first place .... won't that cause even more confusion to a member who doesn't know where to even post in the first place? Or sumpting like that? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hey Voxman. I'd post my response to yours in a different thread but (1) no one from this thread would see it and (2) it would really confuse the people where I did post it.

    Don't get any ideas Alex or eSG.
