> Hi,
> I just wanted to drop a short note to all those posting questions to Foxite. If you can please include something to do with your question in the Subject. Something like a main keyword in the subject.
> As an example, if your problem is with RichTextBox control have "RichTextBox" control in the subject as oppose to "I need help"
> I hope the rest of the Foxite team agrees with me on this suggestion.
> The reason I say this that all members of Foxite have experience in different aspects of VFP, we are not experts in all things and I for one never well be. So in my particular case I look to answer things that I know best:
> - Using the VFP report writer
> - Basic use of the VFP Project Manager
> - Using Formsets
> - Security issues within VFP
> - POS system and touch screens
> - Will perform benchmarking tests on best ways to do things
> I would not attempt to reply to Web questions using VFP, because I know someone like Eric is light years ahead of me on this topic. So I usually cherry pick those Subjects that I know best.
> As well, I have noticed when going into the search engine in history, it seems to run a lot faster looking for things in the Subject, versus looking up things in the entire message body.
> Let me know team what you think.... ? I hope I am not speaking out of turn, but this would really help me answer those things that I know best.
> Pete from the Great White North ! (Only in Canada, ay...) Over and Out ...

I agree Pete. Some posting standards like you mention would be helpful.
