    Re: Please post your questions to our discussion forum - Don't send them to me in a PM or E-mail...





    Love getting PMs with great questions. Also - I get it that people don't understand how a forum works and think,


    I'll just shoot Mike a PM and ask him some questions



    I get it.



    But if you found me from reading my articles or my in-depth replies to questions posted to the forum - that's how you found me. ON THE FORUM.


    I everything I ever typed was in a Private Message - no one would have ever found me.


    Kind of hard to wrap your mind around but the big picture is - it's a much better use of my typing time and the company's investment in having me online to answer questions when I do it PUBLICLY not privately.


    So if you're new to the forum and somehow you found this thread - PLEAST post your questions to the forum. Please do not send them to me in a PM. If you do - all I'm going to do is politely ask you to copy and paste what you sent me and share it on the forum.


    Post it here,

    Thank you!

    Re: Please post your questions to our discussion forum - Don't send them to me in a PM or E-mail...




    I love getting PMs with questions but I simply don't have the time to type out the kind of in-depth how-to information where only one set of eyeballs will EVER see the info.


    I get it - you joined the forum but because your account has not been approved you send me a PM - happens all the time.

    I try to approve new accounts first thing in the morning AND THEN ON THE FLY ALL THROUGHOUT THE DAY. Please don't think I'm slack in my job, I'm just busy. See the time stamp here? It's 9:43am

    If you recently joined the forum - all pending account approved - spammers removed




    For example, I approved all pending accounts this morning and then Yancy and I went to the garage to shoot videos. Thus I'm not behind my desk to approve new accounts.

    I just approved all pending accounts that have piled up since I did it this morning and I'll do it again on-the-fly throughout the day.


    PLEASE post you questions to the forum.


    Here's a GREAT example why,


    New guy joins forum, myself and others help him out. He goes from needing help to success. In his thread is a LOT of info that will help others with the same detailing project for DECADES to come.

    And look at the views?




    Now if he would have sent me a PM and if I would have answered in a PM then the number of views would be,

    1


    That doesn't help anyone but the person that sent me the PM. Nothing wrong with that except I simply don't have the typing time to type out detailed info that often includes,

    1. Pictures
    2. Links to more info
    3. Links to tool, pads and products
    4. Video



    for one set of eyeballs.


    So it's never anything personal, it's just after 18+ years of typing out info on forums I know how best to invest my employer's investment into me.


    Thank you for understanding. And in the last week or so if you've sent me a PM with questions, this is why I've replied back and politely asked you to take what you typed, copy it and then start a NEW THREAD with a GREAT TITLE and then paste what you typed into the thread.

    Then I'm more than happy to do my best to help you.

    Re: Please post your questions to our discussion forum - Don't send them to me in a PM or E-mail...



    For all the reasons I list in the first post of this thread, please post your questions to the forum and not in a personal message to me.

    I invest a LOT of time into typing out ACCURATE HELPFUL information with pictures, video and links to even more information and on the forum tens of thousands of EYEBALLS CAN SEE and BENEFIT from this info.

    In a Private Message?

    Only one set of eyeballs sees the information FOREVER.

    Think about it? Which is the better option? This is why it's called a "discussion forum" not "send Mike a PM"


    Thank you for understanding. I love to help others but I've been doing this too long to do stupid stuff.
