That still hasn't been fixed? Man, that's annoying.. FIXED!
I don't have the power to fix it (only admins can do that), but I CAN move your HOWTO to the appropriate place if you post it elsewhere.
* The Headacher kindly asks the mighty admins to fix permissions in the HOWTO board
With the fix having been done, this reply to The Headacher's request is a reminder that the HOWTO board is NOT
a place to ask questions and an explanation of why the HOWTO board was set as a reply-only board for regular members.
Too many members did not read the forum description, which plainly states that the HOWTO board is not the place to ask questions but a place to post completed solutions to problems for discussion by members. Too many posts had to be moved to other boards, because they were questions and not solutions. That's why the HOWTO forum was set to be a reply-only board, where the admins and mods would move completed solutions posted by members.
Moderators, if you find questions being asked in the HOWTO board, especially if they start a thread, move them immediately
. There is no need to leave a "This topic has been moved" post when you do make moves in that forum. Thanks very much.
Finally, moderators, if you do find yourselves moving too many questions out of the HOWTO Section, let me know ASAP, and I'll reset the board so that it is a reply-only board. Thanks very much.
Your friendly admin,
