PUBLIC ADVISORY II: Doubleposting


I can't even believe I have to post this!

There's a very nice function on this board called the EDIT BUTTON. Use it for crying out loud!

Don't complain about trolls or whatever if you're keeping the mods busy yourself with editing and deleting your posts because you're too lazy to think twice!

Thank you very much.

See, this function actually works! Amazing isn't it??

One shouldn't accept or resort to the mutilation of science to appease the mentally impaired.

I entirely agree with you, vulture, but I am just curious: what exactly is the evil in doubleposting? Is it loathed simply because its annoying?

p.s. I am not a doubleposter, nor do I endorse, encourage, advocate, or recommend doubleposting, I am just wondering.

It's a waste and confusing. Why would you want one topic being discussed in multiply threads? It makes it hard for those interested to locate the information. Plus it makes the thread starter seem post-whorish and desperate for a response IMO.

By the way, what made you want to ask about a 4+ year old post? I would figure it would be obvious why a forum administrator would want users to start threads in the proper places.

Search for the huge thread on making Potassium... that 20 odd some page thread could be cut down to possibly less the 20 if double post are removed(go countem yourself and see). It would be so much cleaner and simpler on the search engine if it where just not done.

The fall of Rome, the fall of Germany — the fall of the ruling country, the people who think they can do whatever they want without anybody else's consent. I've seen this story before."~Maynard James Keenan

By double posting, I assume you mean posting something then immediately posting a response before anyone else responds. If so, admins should extend the length of time one is able to edit his/her posts! It seems like after 24 hours or so, the 'edit' button disappears. Just a thought...

I thought doubleposting was what tank said? Posting in a thread and then posting again in the same thread before someone else? You seem confused (Or maybe it's me that is confused...).

Hi:

I used the delete option yesterday as I seemingly saw a repeat of my opening thread entitled "Making Ferrates with Household Chemicals" by AJKOER in the General Chemistry section. Well, somehow the whole opening thread was deleted.

As I believe my thread is very important (a new production route for Ferrates) and am doing more testing and research before applying for a Provisional Patent. I would appreciate if someone could fix it (I placed my original opening thread with pictures further down in the thread, but this is an ugly place for a potentially important work. In particular, Sodium percarbonate and NH4OH appear to produce a more rapid and robust (with respect to process) avenue to Ferrate production than existing methods.

Thanks
