Subject description: Please post in the appropriate sub section
 

Please post a new program, you are offering, in the appropriate sub section of Additional Software.

The Additional Software section, of the forum, is sub divided into sections.
This provides a list of programs, of specific type, in one location.

This keeps you from having to look at page after page of programs, all mixed together.

You who post a program, control this.

There is no one moving programs from here to the proper sub section.

Please help us all by posting a new program in the appropriate sub section of Additional Software.


When Additional Software section got sub divided.
This unsorted section was being used to store programs, that had not been moved or did not seem
to fit into a sub section.

Please stop using it.

Actually I move them when I notice them and can quickly figure out where they should have gone. Smile But you're right, it should really be done by the OP. Presumably, he's the one who knows the most about the program.

I call this the hidden gems section (sometimes). Your post certainly makes sense! Thanks!

Flash,

Good to hear someone is trying to move these programs to the proper sub section.

Thank you!!

I remember when the sub sections were made.
It was talked about making the unsorted section locked,
so no new posts could be made.
However, it would keep people from posting to the topics that were there.

Pizzagood did a very good job of initially moving stuff, but fizzled out after the first effort.
It was/is a lot of pages to look through!! Shocked Wink

Maybe change the name of this sub section, from unsorted to:
legacy
archived
old programs
etc...
That way it would look like a place you do not post new stuff.
