[Q] – Question Function Now Added for New Threads
Our developers and administration team just equipped the site with something that many of you have been waiting for. Whenever you are about to start a new thread, you will see a small check-box right underneath the body of the post you are writing. When checked, this will automatically place a “[Q]” sign in front of the title of your thread. Unfortunately, as of lately we have had a lot of threads that are opened in the wrong sub-forums and users open them without knowing that they are questions, as some titles are misleading. By having the question marking, you can ensure that you don’t stumble upon a question thread if you don’t feel like looking at one. In the same manner, if you are one of those helpful individuals in our community, it will make it that much easier to find those poor souls in peril and give them a ray of hope whenever needed.
Have a look at the thumbnail or try to open a new thread to see for yourselves. And remember, whenever you have questions, search first and also post in the correct section.
