I figured that, Al. Just seems silly in this thread for that whole conversation to be deleted. But whatever, mods do a pretty good job here so I'm not complaining.

You know of course that if the cars only race around the track in an orderly fashion, a thread about swapping in salvaged T 12 lamps into T 8 fixtures would only get 85 or so reads (though it's an interesting insight).

As soon as the cars start crashing into each other, that's when the thread will get another 300 reads daily until the crashing stops (how many phases in a single phase system?).

I could view the example as bringing more unique readers to your thread.:)

What do do?

What do do?


Next response: Take the switch to a test bench, connect it to Binford 6723 test-o-matic and check the Retro Encabulator output, it should be 0.00001 to 0.00002

That is just too funny. I am really in a bind because my Binford 6723 just blew its micro-gezortenhammer circuit and I can't find spare Finnegan pins for the Retro Encabulator anywhere.

Hi all,

I figured I would post this and let you know what some of the moderators are up to. There are a number of us that feel we have been letting threads drift too much and that is not great for the original poster (OP)

What I am asking is that we try to stay directly on the OPs question and not expand on it until we hear back from the OP and they ask further questions. Too often I see 20 posts that have great information but are only marginally related to the OPs question before the OP has even returned.

The OP comes back, reads this and says I am outta here, I just asked a simple question. :jawdrop:

No one should take this personal and I fully admit that I am guilty of it as well. I am going to make an effort to change that and ask the same of you.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Bob
As some have mentioned, often the OP asks a question, there are some related answers, but require more information for a definitive answer.

Can a note be added to the 'Welcome, new OP' message requesting that they stick around at least a few days and read any answers?

As a premier electrical educational site i can understand the concern for common courtesy to noobs confronted with thread drift.

Perhaps they don't realize they're in front of a millennia of experience , much of which has not only fielded the same queries over and over, they've investigated the details of them.

Ergo, there's nothing malicious throwing the 'line' out for them , it's just a matter of making sure they take the bait...

Maybe a warning to new members: "You are now asking the Genius Bar Electrical Questions. Your answer will be -very- complete!"

Since this thread was started over two years ago it's time to close it.
