Anybody Else Only Read The General Discussion Forum?


I guess I can't be bothered to click on all those other links. I like to get a broad overview of all the trades, and as it seems that all the trades post in General, that is where I go. I think they could have broader categories, it seems many of those forums arn't that busy.

You should use this link:
New Posts

It shows all new posts in all of the sections.

You're missing out on A LOT by not reading everything else.

Re: Anybody Else Only Read The General Discussion Forum?


Experienced tradesmen who want to discuss the nitty-gritty of their specialties don't do it in General Discussion. If all you're interested in is an amorphous hint of the information to be had on this site, I suppose this section will suffice.

Beats me why anyone would want to limit himself that way, though.

Used to but know I seem to get stuck on the particular trade I'm doing at the time.



If there is a online fight going on I'll get the popcorn and watch from the sidelines no matter what the category. I"m a sucker for a good fight.
