Please Read, this is about when posting a question

Whenever you ask a question and people answer that question or ask you for more info ect ect. please in some way reply. Myself and other moderators have did some searches and answered the questions, but the original poster never replys back. Even if you figure it out, it would be nice for you to reply back and tell us that. If you dont plan on replying back to your questions please dont post them. Thanks, if you dont understand this, PM me.

You ask for common courtesy from this bunch?

Come on Dude, if you have to explain it to them they won't understand you anyway??? Of course, if you ask for help you should respond when someone suggests something for you to try and let them know if it worked or not. Now we need and explanation on posting etiquette and suggestions to use the spell checker too.

Yeah he is, just the first sign that the world is going to end soon

Seriously though, it is really annoying when someone posts an issue and then never checks back. I like to know if something worked or if we were way off track.

Off topic but related:

If you do not get a reply to your post after a few days, then bump it back to the top.Sometimes questions get missed.
Don't start another thread asking the same question!

Missed thread??

The only way a thread gets passed over is if its stated in such a way no one really understands what the hell its about exactly! One of those how much HP or build my engine for me threads. Put your car on a dyno/sp man, how the hell are we supposed to know how much HP your engine has?? Be specific as to your request for help. Dude, Fix one problem at a time and reply when someone suggests something for you to do or check. I gave up expecting a reply to my suggested solution to a problem. Under stand this guys n gals, If I can help I will, please be kind enough to reply in such a manner as to give everyone the benefit of your results and or solution, this helps the board learn.

Tm454, im not really talking about not getting replies, just the fact that if you do, the person who originally posted never replys answers back or lets anyone know.

Good point Rubberman2003. It's not only helpful to the people involved in the discussion to know how it turned out, but it's also useful to the people who find the discussion later via the search function.
