Default Choose the Correct Forum to Post In Please

Recently, there have been many threads posted in the incorrect sections; yesterday, I moved a thread from the intro section to the go kart discussion section because it was a querie, not an intro &, right now, there are no less than 5 threads regarding torque converters in the go kart discussion section; there's a separate section for that, Engines & CLUTCHES, it's in the title!

Please make the moderators' job easier by double checking which section you post in before posting a new thread...

Yepp seriously..

it'd help if we at least try to use the correct forum, especially for those that indeed scroll through the forums to find solutions to their (similar) problems.

And yes.. that's a shameless BUHP (it's not mine but his you know )

I'm also noticing a LOT of thread hijacking lately; just to clarify, in case you don't already know, thread hijacking is when you ask a question about your kart in a current thread started by someone other than you! This is also against the forum rules...

What's worse is when someone starts a thread on a subject then hijacks someone elses thread as well; double posting is also against the rules...

I'm still moving a lot of threads; if this continues, we won't simply move threads, WE'LL DELETE THEM!

Do it!
I always just click "New posts" So I do not even notice, But I am tired of reading your "Moved Thread" posts.
Just delete it and send a PM...
"Your thread has been Deleted Please post in the Proper Forum"

Maybe we need a required reading to Join. But make it simple and concise.
2 or 3 lines

Seconded. Delete them all.

That required reading though... sounds like something I would devise.

Either that or a probationary period where they (newbies) are restricted to an introductory subforum and the FAQ (or a FAQ) for a short duration.

Naw. Just close registration.
Then mods would have it real easy.

Gotta keep smiling.

Well this thread is off the rails, anyway. This is announcements not OT. The point is: help people post in the right forum. Thanks.
