    Maybe i'm treading over the mark here but do you think we could maybe get some guidelines for this area of the forums because it's getting a bit out of hand.

    I only mean things like:

    Please read online articles about your issue before posting here; your issue could be solved quickly and easily this way, without having to create another discussion thread.

    Please seive through the pages of existing threads to see if your topic has been discussed already, before posting your own.

    Please do not post your vmf and expect us to ride in and fix it for you. providing pictures and explinations is acceptable and an expected standard of trouble shooting online.

    Please summarise your mapping issue in your title. This means mappers from the community experienced with your problem can drop by and help you quickly and efficiently. Giving you quicker, and accurate responses.

    Obviously you can create more/rephrase these more appropriately. But i think we need them to make this place run more professionally/efficiently and these arn't really covered in the "forum guidelines" that are currently stickied.

    thanks for your suggestions. we have talked about implementing some type of post criteria for that particular forum. we'll see what we can dig up in terms of modifications that are better suitable.

    thanks again.

    Cool. I was surprised there wasn't one already to be honest. I wasn't sure where to post this request either so sorry for putting it in the wrong area/thank you for moving it.
