Idea for posting on this forum

Post by Original Smith » Wed Aug 21, 2019 9:16 pm

I would like to see posts for whatever subject to be clearly labeled. Case in point, valve stems. If you are posting a picture of a valve stem, be sure to mention what it is for! And since this if a model T forum, it should be a Model T valve stem, not some valve stem for a Packard or whatever. If you wish to do something like that, be sure to properly identify the part you are posting. There are lots of new people to the hobby, Model T guys out there, that have no knowledge whatsoever of valve stems, and they might just take it for fact!

It is like the posters that have a topic of 'for sale' or 'wanted'. There is enough room to post what you are talking about. Please use the space that is available. Thank you.

The ones I like the least are posted by someone trying to contact someone else on the forum that list only the name. When I see it, I assume it's going to be bad news instead of a contact request. How about adding "Trying to reach..." before the name?
