ATTENTION: Re. starting new threads. You are not a special flower!
Whether you are a noob or an old member, you are not a special flower, no matter what your mom told you.
There is a number of threads that already comer the same damn subject. If you have a question, please stick to one thread and ask them there. Also, check the damn forum and see whether the same thing has been posted. How many damn DK28 threads did we need started in 20 minutes?
I realize that you may not get as many responses as you might if you posted a new thread, but you will also not annoy longtime readers and posters. It is a delicate balancing act, trying to maintain a welcoming atmosphere while keeping the first few pages full of good content rather than of threads with questions that could be answered in a single line, and you can all help each other out by showing some consideration for other members.
Before posting a new thread, please ask 2 questions:
1) Is my question/issue that can be posted in one of the existing threads?
2) Is this post likely to stimulate interesting conversation.
I hope that mods would start just deleting threads instead of merging them, if they think that the poster ought to have known better.
