    Question asking template

    Question asking template


    Anytime I get questions via e-mail, a PM or a FB message I prefer to invest my typing time where

    A: It's easier for me to share links, pictures and videos.

    B: More people can read and thus benefit from the information. (no just one set of eyeballs)


    The reality is, most people that contact me found me via an article I've written or a reply I've written on this forum. The thing is, instead of figuring out that the whole reason they are contacting me is because they found me via an article or answer I wrote on the forum that they to should bring their question to the forum because not only will that help them.... but it will help a future "them". If I answer everything in a private e-mail or other touch point, no one would find and contact me. It's a cycle or pattern that repeats as long as everything is shared in the public domain.

    The above is kind of wordy but re-read it slowly and it will make sense.


    So I get an e-mail asking,




    Hey Mike,

    Blank blank blank?


    -Blank



    Great questions Blank...



    Hope that helps and feel encouraged to join our forum, this is where I answer questions. Email and Facebook messaging are okay, but the forum is a LOT more powerful. (think about it - it's how you found me in the first place)

    (the above is just a template that is now a sticky so each time someone sends me an e-mail or FB message I don't have to search for an older reply I wrote to get the formatted text above, I have it here in this sticky.


    As I say... I always type for the future.... never just the present...

    Sounds like artillery fungus?

    Hard to say without a picture.


    Black spots on my truck - artillary fungus



    i have " Artillery Fungus" on my truck. it is a from a mushroom that shoots the crap out 20ft into the air.

    i can sometimes scratch them off with my finger and easily clean it off. other times i can just take it off the top of the spot. what could take this off?

    here is a picture i just puled off the web.

    Re: Question asking template

    Also just to say....


    Thank you for joining the forum to ask your questions.

    You did what is called "tagging". That is you tagged your question to another person's thread. The two topics are totally unrelated.

    No big deal, just point it out to use this as a "teaching moment".


    I'll move your post and my reply to create for you your own thread and then e-mail you the link as that's how we roll on this forum.
