Can't members start their topics in the RIGHT discussion board?!
« on: February 01, 2012, 05:51:10 pm »
(I don't intend to bash or get angry with anybody because that's not my intention!)

Dear FusionCash members:

I'm really confused as to seeing so many OFF-TOPIC topics in every single discussion board (like, why is "new word game" in the suggestion section?). I think to be fair for the rest of the FusionCash community, and the administrators, we should try to follow this rule. Otherwise, there is NO NEED for the creation of different discussion boards because now it seems you can post a topic ANYWHERE.

There are different kinds of discussion boards available. You all can read English, you all are smart people. If you have a topic that's about "suggestions", the post your topic in the "suggestion" section. If you have a random  topic about "bananas" post in "off-topic" section. It's THAT EASY.

Thank you, and have a great day!!

I would say because they're either newbies or n00bies.

Thanks SO MUCH you guys! I'm beginning to worry about receiving hate messages for this... but I'm comforted when I see people agreeing with what I say.

I've been wanting to post this for ages.  It has gotten way out of hand for a very long time.  I've even thought of going to the individual threads and posting "hey this is not the appropriate discussion please post in the correct discussion."  I think one way to try and stop it is to just stop responding to a thread if it's in the wrong section other than telling them to post it in the correct discussion.  Maybe there is a way for admin to move the threads to the correct section but because there are so many of them I can see it taking up a huge amount of time.

neat freak huh, maybe they will let you go through all the posts for everyone who accidentally did not put a post where it belonged and place it in a correct place that makes you feel like Job is well done.  :notworthy:

I have posted a similar discussion some months back. Other members have also. It has done no good. But I appreciate what you have said. I am glad to know that other people feel like I do. I think that some members are either lazy or being ornery and posting topics on the wrong discussion board deliberately.  :dontknow:

I think one way to try and stop it is to just stop responding to a thread if it's in the wrong section other than telling them to post it in the correct discussion.

Agreed. I no longer respond to a topic posted in the wrong section. My personal view is that it's a case of laziness, simply not taking the time to actually read the guidelines posted on the Discussion Board or not even caring enough to notice. The other issue is that once a new topic is started, it cannot be removed by the person who made that first post. So once the mistake is made, it cannot be undone.

The members seem pretty evenly split on this issue. Some think it's no big deal, others like me do. I suppose everyone's entitled to their opinion. Just expressing mine.  :peace:

I find it super irritating.  Not only the wrong discussion board posts, but the insane spelling and grammar. We all make typos when we're typing fast, I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about posts that are barely literate.

Usually the two go hand in hand.

Agree 100+%! I have repeatedly tried to be nice to many who continually post in the wrong place and all I get in return is a smarta** answer back. The people I am talking about are NOT new members. It's members who have been here long enough to make multiple cashouts and have also made hundreds of posts, so there is NO excuse for them continuing to do it other than they are lazy and/or ignorant!

No, I disagree with you on that one. We have far too many that appear to have never even gone to school or read a book. :angry7:

I'm a newbie and I totally agree. Posting in wrong topic makes it hard to find legit help. It also breeds repetition which is very annoying.

Hi,
Everyone makes mistakes.  Maybe some people are new and are not familiar with the Discussion Board rules.  Please be patient with our new members.  They are still learning the ropes.

I've mentioned this a few times before also. I got told to get a life. Really....for wanting a little organization.  :dontknow: I think what happens is that people click on one of the recent posts on the home page of the forum. If they comment on that thread, they are taken back to that thread. Then they just click the Start A Topic button, not knowing which thread they are in. I made a suggestion to select which thread you want to start the topic in. Maybe if people had to decide, they would actually put it in the correct thread.
