Just some food for thought.

I've noticed that for quite some time now there has been a constant shuffling of postings among the forums.  If it were an occasional out of place posting from someone using a phone, for instance, it would be understandable.  It seems that this is not the case, and that many people, myself included,  are mis-understanding the intent of each section. 

For instance, there is nothing that states that the watch repairs help and advice forum is not for "consumer" questions. If that is the case, then it should be stated, and perhaps a section created where folks can post those kinds of questions,  answered by the people who have the patience to do so.

 I'm just concerned that the forum will get the kind of reputation that some ah,  other forums have, where the members are seen as curt and overly dismissive of naive questions. Not welcoming, in other words. 

Any thoughts? Or am I being overly sensitive?

Thanks

I'm not exactly sure what you mean but I have been having an idea for the "repair help and advice" section of the forum which you and others might like.

What if there was a sticky topic in that section (sticky as in it won't get lost down the page) called "Quick questions, quick answers" where people can ask simpler stuff, maybe even post a photo, and someone can simply reply and then just have someone else ask something else and so on.

The advantage of this is that there won't be any topics about "how do I change the battery on this watch?" or "how do I remove this stem" and it'll be a dedicated topic where experienced folk can offer pertinent answers to those trying to solve a simple issue.

One of the small downsides of moving postings is that it breaks the read/unread feature of the forum, at least on my browser (chrome). If a post has been moved, then that section will show that there are unread posts even when there aren't. Makes the forum look a bit shabby. I know what's happening and work around it,  but I'm sure that's not true of everyone.

And I agree, stickies can be helpful when people come asking the same question all the time, but they have to be concise. As you say @Chopin, "Quick Questions, Quick Answers". 

Thanks!
