PLEASE!! Do Not Ask for Technical Advice "off line"

This is a public forum for the discussion of all things Eagle. Whether it be an upcoming Eagles International event or the history of Silver Eagle. Trolling or spamming will not be tolerated.


The problem of folks asking for technical help via the "contact me" page or via direct email continues.

I don't know how to say it any stronger:

I simply can't/won't spend my limited resources trying to answer questions not posted in this forum

I have discussed this problem in this thread:

http://eagles-international.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4571

Here is the first post of that thread:

Folks, I spend a lot of time trying to keep this board running and answering technical questions on the forum when I can contribute. It is important to me be a part of, and support in any way I can, a forum that contains an amazing amount of Eagle information.

We grow our information base through the threads on this forum where folks ask for help. By posting on this forum, you get the benefit of exposure to many folks who can offer advice/help. Even more important, you get the benefit of having the various replies vetted by other knowledgeable folks so that the best possible answer(s) evolve. Lastly, questions/comments can be viewed/searched by all readers/members of this forum.

Lately, several folks have tried to get technical advice via the "contact me" page. On that page I clearly (in big red print) state that the contact me page is ***only*** for discussion of communication problems on the forum. Those "contact me" forms come to me and I must take the time to respond to the person stating why we have a very strong policy of only addressing technical issues via this forum.

In the past two weeks I have had folks write directly to me to ask technical questions. Again, I must take the time to respond to the person.

Put simply, there is only one person administering this forum and it takes a lot of time and I am getting close to the burn-out stage. In the past, I tried to help anyone that contacted me, but I have had to make the decision that I can no longer do that.

It is easy (and free) to register for this forum: http://eaglesinternational.net/eagles-i ... c5e11552dd

I will always answer questions on this forum (if I can contribute).
