For new members of the forum, please use this thread to ask any questions you may have about how the forum works. We have lots of veteran members here happy to help out!
Veteran members, please feel free to offer help and answer any questions! Unlike most of the forum areas, we do ask that questions in this area be given accurate replies and the off topic-ness be kept to a minimum. Thanks.
Discobot is currently trying to come up with a super-witty and cool reply, but before he can post it, he’ll get wrapped up in a side-gig and forget about it for a few days, and then it will just feel AWKWARD, so he’ll fret about it for a couple years and hope you’ve forgotten the question.
Question: Should new members search for a thread subject before starting a new topic?
Answer: Absolutely! There are already a treasure trove of threads that dive deep into many a topic. Instead of starting from scratch, read what’s been posted previously, and reawaken the thread to keep it going and all in one convenient location! Huzzah!
Yes, please! There are tons of great threads that have lost steam. I’m particularly sad about the pets and my (admittedly dumb) D&D thread. If you wake up an older thread you will likely get replies from the folks who started it in the first place and light it back up. This is a wonderful thing.
I agree that can be an issue and one I’m guilty of myself. I’d recommend trying to search for a few different terms before starting a new thread. There are still many topics that haven’t been explored yet.
I searched the Forum and Help and didn’t find my answer, but someone else (Vader) magically had a link handy. So here’s how to report closed captioning issues or corrections. It’s super-annoying that you have to repeatedly fill out the same info over and over if you have a big list, but at least it exists, eh?
