Not that it was ever very effective. But, better than nothing.


I'm beginning to see a number of posts with questions and responses that don't belong here, but in the appropriate forum (to which they haven't yet been moved.) I would like to see this forum still reserved for discussions or doesn't-fit-elsewhere feedback only.


I'm seeing one post with replies, which is almost a day old; it hasn't been moved.


I can understand wanting to help someone and not let their question langish, but I wouldn't want to see this become too common.

    There is an option in 'Report abuse' to alert the Hosts about posts that need relocating:

    I'll second the 'Relocate Post' option. The moderators seem pretty quick to move things in their work hours. In one case I reported a post and by the time I'd written a two line response it had been moved.


    Best wishes

    I seem to spend most of my time on ASC reporting post to be "relocated," especially in the iWork for iPad "community." Less so in the Mac iWork forums, but still too much. I don't normally report those in this forum because I know the hosts read more of the posts here. I thought one of the "benefits" of the new software was to "guide" posters to post in the correct forums but it's not happening!

    I was ... suggesting we don't reply to these posters here


    I think that you are within your rights if, as a form of protest, you choose not to reply to people who mistakenly post technical questions in this forum; I also think that encouraging others not to respond to people who mistakenly post here is a bit over the top.


    IMO, it's best to answer questions when and where you can and to leave the rest to the Hosts.
