You post a request for help in the wrong section, someone starts helping you, determines that your request should be posted in another section and transfers your post to the appropriate section?

Does it get stuck in limbo because the other helpers think that someone is already assisting you...????????

Someone once told me that we weren't supposed to contact the helpers directly... and while I wish to respect those instructions, I'm afraid I won't be able to get help otherwise... :tazz:

Hiya

If I find say a thread in Off topic that needs moved to Malware, I do the following

If it has no replies, I hust move it, that way when it appears in the correct forum, it will still show no replies and be picked up and dealst with as per everyone else.

If it has some replies already, i will edit the topic title so as to reflect the fact that it is a new request when it is moved, thatway the OP is not disadvantaged.

O.K., that's fine Biker, and quite logical.

However, since you are not the one who moved MY topic... and since the person who actually did move it did NOT change the title... how will anyone know that I need SOMEONE to look at it...? :tazz:

In the Off Topic section of these boards, we have a sticky that you can post an alert in if you have had no reply in 5 days.

the link is here..

This is monitored closely and overlooked posts that are notified to us there get picked up quickly.

we are not currently out 5 days, however since there have been posts made to it, it will be overlooked this is a way to get it looked at faster.

I know where you are coming from on the aspect that you use your computer for business, so do I, and I was without it for 2 weeks.

O.K., well, how about this?

Since you already know about my problem... and since you certainly sympathize with my plight... might it not be a good idea for you to have a look at the post yourself...? :tazz:

Just wondering... :)
