dont PM me for robot questions
« on: June 24, 2007, 08:38:31 AM »
Reminder:
About 1/3rd of the private messages I get on the forum are 'how to build a robot' type questions. Please keep these to the forum. Others may have the same question :P

If you are afraid its a dumb question, search the forum and google first. If you cant find anything, its probably not a dumb question ;D

Admin,

Is there any possibility of you blocking your PMs? This would be a good way of keeping a lot of people from messaging you 'easily'

If they are really hard up for it, then they will email you. Sounds like a brilliant idea to me lol

Well I get a lot of non-robot related messages too . . . such as people pointing out errors in my tutorials ;D

I would think time management dictates that one stream of information is enough

There is a topic for tutorial mishaps, no?
