People posting answers via email

17 Views

Hi,

I am seeing more and more threads where people state "give me your email address and I will send you a document".

this is understandable but what then happens is a thread that gets longer and longer each day and keeps on appearing at the top because everyone is adding another reply "please send it to me too....".

The main aim of these forums (IMHO) is to spread the help as wide as possible and posting answers to people via email not only causes problems with huge threads as I mentioned above, but it "hides" the solution from anyone else with the same problem.

the usual reason given is "The SDN site does not allow you to put screen shots in replies".

If this is the case and can't be changed then surely a link could be posted to the help document instead?

Is it me? or do threads with hundreds of "please send it to me too....." make the site look less professional and clog up the process?
