moderators -- need your assistance
« on: December 24, 2012, 01:56:03 AM »
i tried to post on 12-23 7:15PM UTC-5 (NYC) but was frustrated by a technical network glitch ... now the forum mechanism is disallowing me to re-attempt it.

Since this topic is about the forums, how can I pm an admin to talk to him about something? or do I have to email them? Also, who can I pm, to a forum admin, about my question?

You can't use the PM function until you have 20 posts (an anti-spam measure), so please don't go on a post count quest as meaningless post are likely to get removed anyway.

I have no idea why the question you wish to ask requires the attention of the forum administrator ?

i was expecting the moderators to remove this post.

i didn't see the pm mechanism.

@DavidR: i can't believe that you interpreted this instant post as a cheap "post count quest" -- i already have 126 posts!!

I think you'll find DavidR's reply was directed at ROCKNROLLKID.

My post was not directed at you but to the one directly above mine, which I think should be quite clear given the content in it.

If it isn't directed to the one above mine then I use quoted text.
