Hey administrators! Can we get a new topic!

Recommended Posts

Ok, this is me trying to be helpful and a little annoyed.  Can we possibly get a new topic that is dedicated to compressors and airbrushes.  I would guess that a several times a month if not per week, we get someone who has basic questions about buying an airbrush or a compressor or using one.  Now I try an be a helpful person, but I am really no longer inclined to engage on the subject any more.  Frankly i'm tired of repeating myself and perhaps others are tire of reading my same posts over and over.  I guess I am assuming that there are others who share this feeling. If we had a topic dedicated to the subject, members could reference the prior posts and save a lot of time not having to wait for responses.  I think it is a frequent enough topic and basic enough to our hobby to warrant it's own topic.  Thanks

Maybe a section on Painting and Finishing. Or maybe a sticky in either Questions or Tips on airbrushes and compressors.

Not trying to be smart aleck, but does not the pinned topic "Buying my first airbrush Questions", serve the same purpose. I think the thing that annoys me the most, is the number of people who sign-on to the form, ask a question/opinion, and are never heard from again. LOL

Agreed, but in either of those two sections, not General Discussion.

I wouldn't mind seeing any of these suggestions put to work as it does seem to be the never ending question.

The problem is most (not all) folks find it easier to ask same question, that dozens of other folks have asked, than to read a long thread on the subject. Then mods need to either merge it with an existing thread or let it ride. I personally like to have multiple threads (with different titles) as the forum will show up in more searches that way, this is why we don't always merge multiple threads together. We will talk about moving the pinned thread to another topic.

Moved to Q&A section and edited title to include compressors. Still pinned at top.

I keep thinking a paint topic would be a good idea. But, we have to be very careful not to create too many categories or nobody will find anything.

I think one thing that would be very useful is a link to the MCM main site.

Now that you mention it, a paint and bodywork section would be kind of nice.

I agree, maybe it would settle down some other sections as well.
