    And if you have received some good advice, which may have saved you time, money, or both. Or received an SM or Schematic from an existing AK member, (free !) consider subscribing, there are extra benefits from doing this, including knowing that you are helping the site continue helping others.

    - Only quote the relevant portion of a post. It's a waste of bandwidth and fairly annoying when someone quotes an entire post with 5 full size pictures and 2 pages of text so they can say "I agree". Don't be that guy. If you agree, then say you agree but you don't need to quote the whole thing so we can see it again.

    Below the posting window (or reply to thread) is a window labeled "Additional Options". In it is "a button labeled "Manage Attachments". Using that you can upload a picture to the AK database and display it as an attachment in your post. If you want the picture to show in the post you will have to open it, copy the URL of the pic itself, and enclose it in [​IMG]

    New 2 the group and it seems Very helpful. I have my own ?,s but will keep them 2 myself 4 now. I did find it very helpful 4 the improvements on the Infinity SM-152's, also wondering instead of spikes on the bottom, could a person just put wheels on them. That way U could spin them around making moving easier?? I am going 2 try the metal inserts on the inside of them. The sensitivity are like the EV TS8-2. I have other speakers that I've restored but enough 4 now. Later Roger

    Please do not search for a thread discussing equipment you may have a problem with, and post on the end of it. When YOUR problem might be very different to that being discussed in the thread :sigh: - Start your own thread for YOUR problem :yes:

    This is annoying for the existing participants of the thread, and - such posts are usually ignored.

    I always like it when posters make the title of their post informative.

    Read the whole thread! It's incredibly annoying to have someone read the first post in a 3 page thread and then give their sage advice which has already been given by 8 people, most of whom never read past the OP. If it's >1000 pages like the econowave thread, then you're excused. But if it's not then please at least browse through before responding.

    Sometimes when you post in a thread, your post may appear to have been totally ignored - this doesn't mean it hasn't been read. Don't be discouraged, just take it on the chin, read on, and post in another thread.

    An exception to the rule is when what you have involves a visit to the doctor. That's also known as the Jay rule. :D

    How to track my questions and the responses

    Hi

    I am new to this forum, but I find it fascinating and very valuable. I have at least a thousand questions, and really enjoy interacting with the experienced AK members on the site.

    I have posted a number of questions in several different forums including speakers, receivers, cartridges, and others. I am beginning to find it difficult to keep track of all the questions I posted, and the responses.

    Is there an easy way to track my posts and the responses to them? Would like to be able to answer those who give me help, but am afraid I will miss some.

    Go to "user cp" at the top left of the page. In your user control panel you will see a list of threads that you have subscribed to (I believe the default is to auto-subscribe to any thread you have posted in, if not we can fix that too). You can track all the threads you've participated in that way.

    Another way is to left click on your user name and a pull down list will offer you a shortcut to that info.
