As Jon says, this is a new concept for the board so we will play it by ear. My approach will be to focus the discussion, not critique the technical content. I am by no means a technical expert so will defer to the posters on for technical accuracy. However, I will edit anything that doesn't stick to the point - personal attacks, drifting off topic, profanity, etc., will all be summarily discarded. We want "just the facts, Mam!"

One service I will provide is if you post a thread and it is getting no replies, I will go in search of an expert to comment. This happens occasionally in other forums and all it usually takes to get the thread going is to have someone post a reply. I have been around the board long enough that I have a list of members who appear to be experts in their respective topics. I will take your thread and PM them for a comment.

Also, let's not do polls here. we want real answers not anonymous opinions!

What if we have a thread that has some discussion but does not, fully answer what we want answered, or we dont learn fully what we set out to learn. Can we request a "dead thread" be cleaned up and moved to your Advanced section?

Not trying to be rude or anything, but I don't see the point to this.
it looks to me like all of the questions asked here already, can go in one of the other forums.

Can you fill me and probably a few others in on the secret?

thanks Aaron

Well, we are playing with the idea ourselves. A couple moderators saw the need for a forum that was more technically focused and that was heavily censored to publish in-depth dialog, void of the distractions that inevitably work their way into the less structured forums. Be patient, ventures like this take time to develop a distinctive personality.

I agree, the post on the English wheel should be in the body work forum but in the moderator's screen I had no option to redirect it and I didn't want to delete it. I have since figured out how to move it there.

If it doesn't work out, this forum will die a quiet death. If it does eventually fulfill it's vision it should be a pretty valuable addition. Time will tell.

Are all the posts edited before they post? I just posted on the rod side clearance question and when I posted it went back to the forum and all the posts and the reply I posted wasn't there.

The only ones I delete are duplicates or so offensive they don't deserve consideration (haven't found any of the latter yet). Most of my moderation has been to edit out foul language and move threads to appropriate forums. I do a lot of the latter since newbies seem to post their first thread here. I started leaving a move notice in the forum but as you can see, that is most of what is here so I am now just moving the thread w/o notice. That should make no difference to the poster since he should be automatically subscribed to his own thread (unlike me - unless I overtly subscribe to one of my threads I am not linked to it!). Otherwise, your posts and threads will appear here eventually depending on when I get to reviewing them. I am unaware of any post that has waited as long as a day, most are processed within a few hours.
