Default I need help with this forum

It has been brought to my attention that I have been posting questions at this location that are not associated with routing. What I would like to know is this. Where do I go to post questions that are not associated with routing?

I guess that I didn't make myself clear did ask for wise crack like the one above, what I should have said, is where do I ask questions about woodworking other than routing questions like quesions about tools and such. I ask for what I got, thanks for straightening me out on my stupid quesion.

You can find answers about woodworking and tools here or at several other forums. Lumberjocks.com is a fair site.

Sorry you have had this problem. We must follow the rules, you know.

There is a general woodworking and tools section. Scroll down the forum choices when you first log on to routerfroums.com

I moderate a few other forums and when a post is in an inappropriate section, I just move it.
No big deal.

No matter where you post here, you won't get any guff from me.

Gene gotcha going in the right direction here Jerry.....General woodworking should about cover all other bases. I've followed your posts and questions and have no problem with any of em!!!!

I do hope that the "concern" was more about in which area you may have been posting. There's plenty of room for any and all good questions and alot of good folks willing to help!!!

Hi Jerry,

Sometimes I have the urge to post something but find myself unsure as to which of the forum's to post it in. In those cases, the Lobby, is by definition and purpose, a 'safe' place to post it.

Towards the lower right hand corner of most is the 'Forum Jump' pull down menu selector. The many different forums are easily selectable from there.

A few of the really 'broad scope' forums are "Tools and Woodworking" and "Starting Off" under "General Woodworking", "DIY & Renovation" under "Other".

Your participation here has contributed to the quality of this forum and I appreciate it. There is nothing 'stupid' about a question seeking direction on what the best forum around here is to post something in.... Thanks for asking it!

Jerry, many topics are discussed in the lobby and one of them IS about greehouse gases; not a smart remark. The forums are broken down into different sections which pretty well explain what they cover. Turning, scrollsawing, woodcarving and burning... if you do not see a specific catagory then general woodworking covers it.

Jerry, I'm not so sure that Robert was being a wise guy. I think that was a fair answer, you can discuss just about anything in the lobby section. That seems like a good direction for where to head when you're not sure where to post.
