Question Need help with Airstreamforums 101 !!!

I need a little help in understanding how some of these forum distribute threads. In this forum "Our Community", when you place a thread, it stays in the community forum. When I placed a thread in the Restoration Forum under "General Repair, it ended up in the "Interior Restoration Forum" under plumbing, water heaters, toilets & tanks.
So here my request, could you all share how the Restoration Forum works? I kept going back to the "general repair" section to view my thread and since it move to the "interior forum", I couldn't see/view it and thought that it some how disappeared.
John

additional thought

From my favorites, I log into airstreamforums right to the page that shows all of the forums. I just logged onto airstreamforums.com page which shows the last 30 threads posted. Here I see my threads. Maybe I should look at this page when posting in the restoration forum. Easy way to view it.

One more question, when a posted thread is moved (I don't know by who), I don't receive the email notification why someone post a reply to the thread. Any ideas??

Just full of questions
John

Organizing threads

I placed a question about two unknown pvc pipes coming out next to the fresh water tank in the "general repair" forum. The modertor, doing his part, moved the thread to the "interior forum" under the plumbing, toilets, water heaters & tanks for organization. I now understand his logic but was wondering when a thread is "moved", could an automatic notification be link to let the poster know that the thread has been moved.

This will be helpful to some of just mentally challenged individuals ! Ie: you want to add an update, but you're unable to locate your thread.

What works for me-

I think you are in airstreamforums.com/forums from your description. Look to the upper right, not in the corner, but where it says "View Posts New Last 24 Hours No Replies." I usually go to Last 24 Hours, everything active comes up even if it is over 30 posts. Also try clicking Show Left Column, it can make navigation easier.

Talking How tofind your posts...

From the top of the page, click on "Members". Then find your name and click on "search".

I will add the feature request to a future release. Thanks for the feedback!

Posts can be moved by the Moderators 2 ways.

1 They are just moved to another location and no notice is left behind.

2 They are moved, but a marker is left behind. This method retiltles the Post with the word "Moved" in the begnning of the title.

The problem with method 2 is that the sub-Forums, over time, will be cluttered with these "Tagged" posts making for a real messy sub section.

To notify each Member that their post has been moved/edited/split/merged is awfully time consuming, so we just move them and go to the next one.

Hope this helps.

Yeah: moving them with redirects just creates excess posts. I will see if I can get that feature installed. It would be nice.

Which feature are you speaking of?
I thought the moderator said he had those features already??

Where you been Forum-Andy? Long time no see. Welcome back.

Speakin' of movin' threads. This one oughta be in the "ABOUT THESE FORUMS" shouldn't it?

Andy if (hypothetically) you wanted to expnd the "last 30" to its maximum on one interface, how many would fit?
