As you can see I been around since 02. Seen people come, people go. Guess that's the nature of the site. Sometimes guy's get a lil sensitive, gonna happen I guess. I'm pretty loose kinda guy, an if someone gets a lil off topic, I guess I don't notice. Prolly why I'm not a moderator. Yup, I've gotten my paddys wacked a few timesAngry, but I ain't goin nowhere.

Not sure if I'm on topic but that's my .02.

Glad to hear it Mark..as it wouldn't be the same without ya!..I see that the point to a forum is to pick a topic and try to stick with it..if you get off course to far then the moderator steers it back in place..seems simple but not easy to do sometimes..I understand the point now that if some one is looking for an answer thru the search function and it ends up talking about ice cream then it doesn't help all that much..LOL

Hello,
 
Now that I have made a significant improvement on the fuel issues I've found that I can block off sections of the vacuum system and get a change in the high idle problem I have been chaseing for over a year.  Looking at the fourm topics, where would this type of troubleshooting fit in?  It is not really an engine, fuel or electrical match so, I'm open to direction.
 
Thanks
 
Keith

It would go in the "Engine" forum. It has to do with how the engine is running, but it is not specifically a fuel, or electrical issue, at this point. The Engine forum is the place to be...and so you shall be shortly.

Great!  Thanks Joel.  I'm still mulling over the membership renewal options.  My x boss allways told me "If you don't think too good, don't think too fast."

Just a gentle reminder. This thread is about staying on topic.
Please stay on topic. If you are not sure what subject your post should be in, please ask a moderator.
We now return to our regular program.
Have a nice day.

Dwright, I don't rarely go off topic if at all, I believe this off topic thing started with members straying off at times to being plain stupid, from the response Ive read here on the subject members  really don't think it much of a big deal, but rules are rules, in this case I saw a member had a tech problem and I responded with tech answer, not with some stupid off the wall blaber, I think thats the point Adam is trying to get across here with this off topic thing, when I became a member there were close to 1000 members, it was free and when you came on line there was alot of action everywhere with a list down to the floor, thats what I joined for, now its a paid membership for a web club, I don't come on line much anymore but when I do all I see is a bunch of welcome's, a hand full of tech, and mostley chit chat, and there's nothing with that, but as a paid member and goin on 10 years, I don't need to be reminded to stay on topic when I try to help a fellow member with a tech problem because its not in the correct forum.

Joe,

First of all, we know you're trying to help other members and that's great.

Keith's post in this thread was both stating the problem and asking where it should be posted.  It is certainly easier to simply reply to that question here, but it is not the correct forum category or thread for it.  

I like that you took the time to follow up in the actual post and point Joe to your answer here.  However, Dave is correct in mentioning that your post is not in the correct place. 

Dave is just doing his job as moderator to make sure people abide by the rules in place to make keep the site well organized, useful and friendly. 

Really, what should have happened is Keith's post should have been moved by a moderator to the proper forum, then edited to remove the "where should this go?" part of the post.  Then, there would be no risk of technical replies being in the wrong place.  It's not just about your post being in the wrong thread, it's about other's not being able to easily find it.  

I will be moving your reply in this thread over to the correct thread and changing things around so it doesn't throw others off track.

Again, thanks for helping Keith.  If it wasn't for folks like you, C3VR would be pretty useless.

Having known Dave for some time now and read his reply I belive it was a sarcastic joke...... Like most of us Dave realizes that we know to stay on topic. He was making light of the "Staying on Topic" topic.

Adam's explaination and reply is true to form about why we should stay on topic. But to be fair sometimes what we type and read is flat taken out of context.

Hopefully I'm on topic by speaking about "Staying on Topic".... LOL.... and as Dave replied.... "We now return to our regular scheduled programing........"
