PMs - (Private Messages) - A reminder to ALL members . . . .

Unread post by parametric » Tue Mar 10, 2020 2:58 pm

Please remember . . .

When you get involved in an often lengthy exchange - trying to sort out a faulty Synth or most any other "problem",

Those helping you, may wish to send you documentary info./firmware upgrades etc. that they have - but DO NOT WISH

(for various reasons) to publish in the open Forum.

Therefore . . . . Please DO check your Private Messages from time to time. (Y)

Good post guys ((i))

[Thanks Saul - I thought it prudent as I've seen so many "reminders" being posted] <Chris>;)

Also bear in mind that any messages you "send" will stay in your outbox until the recipient has read it. That is how you know it has been received. (Y)

Whilst we are talking about private messages, and whilst I understand Chris's use of them as given above, I would also start to say that folks should not start off their queries as private messages unless there is a genuine need to do so.

I get quite a few private messages asking for general help where they should be public because the problem/solution will help many people. When I get requests like that, I ask the respondent to please post on the forums for the reasons of public benefit, and I remind them that we are not like other forums: Newbies and "dumb questions" will not get flamed. :)
Regards
Derek Cook

I would definitely agree with what Derek said there!

I get emails rather than pm's and nearly all of the questions could easily be answered on the forum and to the benefit of a wider audience. I don't mind answering email questions where I can but the forum is definitely the place to ask these things.

I would absolutely re-affirm that . . .

Discuss it IN the Form - so other can see - and learn . . .

. . and when you find that happy solution, rather than just saying . . .
Thanks Mate . . . . it works! (Y)
Explain briefly what you actually did, and how . . .

It will save others lengthy backtracking through the Forums to find out . . . .

A few pictures will also help with difficult concepts . . . . (Y)

This Forum has grown to be what it is because we seem to be quite good at doing this . . . . ;)

Lets continue . . . 8-)
