Jules, this info is great for noobs AND non-noobs! I'm always forgetting what lots of the acronyms mean, and a small
reason for this reply is so I now can find your thread quickly in my posts.
(Yeah, I know there are other ways; this works best for me.
Once we've been around for a while, we know to look at "Our Wisdom." And brand-new noobs who are visually oriented very possibly will notice the info-packed "New Users" icon at the top and investigate. But considering how many times we've seen posts from confused noobs, apparently it isn't obvious enough. For those reasons, I think it would be wonderful for Johnny to permanently include this thread in the "Announcements" section, where it would be noticed much quicker than anything else, IMO. (I've sent notes to Johnny and Forumadmin, suggesting that they move it, btw.)
I know you said at the beginning that you'd be including subsequent info as it's posted, but I think it would be good to also put something like the following at the end of your original post for those who no longer possess short-term memories (like me
): "No need to read any further -- this post has been edited to include all additional info mentioned in the rest of this thread."
In addition to doing that, I also think it would be a good idea to include it in Our Wisdom. There's nothing wrong with having it in two places, IMO.
If you'll indulge me, I do have one Miss Picky Proofreader/Editor suggestion, and that's to slightly reword your second paragraph. Since it's Johnny's perogative, the trash might be removed, but it also might not. This wording allows for either possiblity rather than implying that it will, at some point, happen:
We hope the trash will be appropriately removed; but if you see any, just ignore it, sit back and start learning.
Great work, Jules!!
