View Full Version : question about old threads

What is the best way to respond to old threads. Take the Lucasi thread as an example. Should I just respond under the orignal poster? This brings the entire thread to the 1st page. Or would it be easier for the rest of you if I just quoted from the thread and added my imput or questions?

very good question. I like the idea of starting a new thread and referencing the old one..

That is a good question and I didn't realize that it would bring the old thread to the first page. Thanks for teaching me something new.

If you chose to reference the old thread, Ed, while at the old thread, copy and paste it's address into the post you are making. That being said, I don't think it's necessarily bad to bring an old thread to the forefront. It probably depends on how much information from it you are referencing, etc. You can also copy a paste a quote if it's not too long. If you do so, it would be good writing to reference the thread it came from.
