Unless it's trivial, I usually direct people who PM me for help to post on the forum, that way everyone benefits.

Anyone else getting pms looking for help lately ?

 I got one a while back. I did not have the knowledge they needed at the time. I thought maybe the person asked me because my profile shows me as a "god" member. I mentioned that the only reason my profile said "god member" was because I have made a lot of posts.  smiley

I salute you for this quote smiley

I'm trying to teach people to fish, but not only that, hope that my "fishing" advice is not just received by one person. Hence the request for questions to be posted on the forum.

After all, who wants to teach 20 people to fish, individually, when you can hold a fishing class?

In my experience and the experience of many others I know -

If you give a man a fish, he eats today. If you teach a man to fish, tomorrow he will be eating your lunch.

Depends on how much you charge for the teaching and how many people want to learn to fish. smiley-cool
As we can't charge on a forum and we have plenty of other stuff to do I guess we prefer to teach only once  smiley-grin

Mine was equally brief especially given the rash of cross posts already on the forum under the same username.
