Posting etiquette?

If you start an original thread say that you just bought an airstream and people said let us see
Updates as you restore it. Should they all go under that original post? Or do you creat a new one or does it even matter?

Doesn't matter, but you can start a new one if you want.

I would suggest one thread, with updates as you make them.

Find a need and fill it.

I do both.

After reading Maggie's (very good) and others ongoing threads I started my own. I wanted an ongoing one so we (I) could prattle on about stuff that didn't need to go on anyone else's thread. I dont do very well with it but still fun.

We also have one for each of our trailers where we post that trailers info.

For specific

questions we try to find an ongoing thread or start a new one with that question.

I try to think about what I name my threads so it's mostly in the title. So an "Introduction" or a "I just got my trailer" might not sound the same in a year or two but it's important and exciting now.

Keep one thread for your renovation so that it's all in one place. Makes it easier for people to subscribe to and follow along a single, continuous thread.

What I have done in the past is have one thread about your trailer or moho when doing day to day stuff but when doing a specific task that hasn't been done or covered by someone else, or asking a specific question on for example, torque settings for axle hubs, I have started a different thread.

I have a Mistress thread, but started a different thread on replacing the subfloor in a Classic motorhome which I knew many people were interested in.

Hope this helps.
