I'd really VALUE your opinion/advice!!!

Post by morris mouse » Sun Feb 05, 2006 7:10 pm

This is a problem that I've had for a while.
I would really value your opinion/advice on it!!

When I'm doing a post,what would everyone prefer?
I mean,I know that it's ok to reply to the NEW problems.

But the question is:-What should I do with the OLD

I mean, would everyone prefer that I do NOT send them personal
messages about their past????? :o :o

I would really appreciate any opinion/advice on this :D

THANKS!!!!!

don't even bother replying to old problems, they would have probably been sorted, but if you really want to, just send a pm and ask how they're getting on, they may appreciate it

We'd encourage users to concentrate on newer posts, because the authors of these are looking for advice now.

For instance, if you see a post from 2003 about a break-up then it's unlikely that your advice will be of use now because the problem's most likely long since dealt with.

It's really down to using your own common sense at the end of the day. If you're PMing a user it may be worthwhile to check the last time they posted to see if they're still quite active on the forums. You might find that they no longer frequent the site.

I agree with the comments so far. I get a wee bit annoyed though when a problem that has been more than it's fair share of advice is left for about 2 weeks then someone comes along just to say something like "hope all is well with you and your bf" for example.... it kinda means nothing to me. A PM is best in that case, no reason why you need to bump the post.

I'd have to agree with everyone else :)
