I'm probably not the only forum member who has received emails from other members asking for one to one assistance for specific problems.
While I don't objects to emails if necessary or where I invite someone to contact me, it can be a bit disconcerting sometimes to find people dropping a message your way asking for help without waiting to see what the forum members can collectively produce in the way of advice or assistance. Sometimes a thread is not even started to begin with.
I usually post whatever my reply is to those emails into the forum. I won't dispute that sometimes it has been necessary to go to email but in general this forum is (and always should be) the first port of call and without it nobody else will ever benefit from a solution to a problem.
