In response to Rachel's earlier query, there is actually a function on the board which you could trigger if you tried to post a message very quickly after posting another one. It's intended to prevent a program from "spamming" a board, but you might trigger it if, say, you had two windows open and happened to post replies in quick succession.The general concept in netiquette is that you don't follow up to your own post, unless you want to effectively tell people to disregard the earlier post in some way. Otherwise you end up with a lot of monologues!This applies mainly to newsgroups, but on a board like this you can effectively avoid the problem by editing a recently made post and adding to it instead. It helps to keep the thread looking tidy, and will also save some storage space - every new post here eats into SFXB's storage space a little bit, and I think that editing an old post (if it's appropriate to do so) will probably save space versus multiple smaller posts.I suppose I should come up with some guidelines for the use of the board, but it's very rare that I need to say anything. Incidentally, is everyone aware of the Messenger function? You can send messages to other usernames on the board using it if you want to discuss something off the main board with someone. That's how I'd normally get in touch with someone if I had an issue with a post (and yes, I did mention repeat postings to Rachel in a PM a little while back!).Don't worry if you do it, it's really not the end of the world, it's just something to try and avoid if you can. Thanks.
