Why are people allowed to hijack others threads ?
If you have a problem start your own thread as it makes it very difficult to follow and receive support if you don't.

    This annoys not only you but when people post repeatedly the same post at five minutes intervals which post do you reply to? Either posters are desperate for an answer or impatient! !! Many answers are or have been posted of only people would look to see if their questions have nebe asked or answered already.

    None in particular but it does happen a lot  and can result in people getting confused.

    Hi @djbantiques, I hear you. It can get very confusing and we as moderators try to split as many as we can to avoid further confusion. Sometimes members are new and are still finding their feet on the forum which is absolutely fine. However, do feel free to flag anything with us and we can take a look at it.

    Hi @wilko, thanks for this, it's something I've noticed a lot too recently and we think it might be a tech issue causing posts to be duplicated. We're currently speaking to the forum platform about resolving this. Hope this helps, and thanks for helping us keep the community as safe and helpful as possible!

    I completely agree with people asking questions on other threads. When you're trying to give advice to others it does get really confusing at times when there's multiple questions on the same thread.

    I've also noticed that sometimes when i'm replying to others that it can look like the answer hasn't been posted, even though you've clicked "post reply" When your reply hasn't actually been posted at all. Very frustrating when you've typed a fair amount for that reply.

    I can imagine @poppy123456 ! This sounds similar to something @Richard_Scope has experienced recently with his replies too, we'll make sure we pass that on.
