    How do I answer a question...

    I posted some pictures of thread catchers that I made and now people are asking me questions about them. What do I do so I can answer the person that asked the question?
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    where are they asking the questions? if it is on the original post site, then just click on "Reply With Quote" and answer right on the same thread so we can all see the answer...the PMs are great for private info, but it you answer technique questions, it just means other people will keep asking as they cannot see what you have written...

    Thank you, this was the answer I was looking for.

    I send PM's because a lot of times people don't go back to the post and read additional responses. I just want to be extra sure they get their questions answered.
    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.

    I post the answer to the original thread so it gives the most benefit to those who may have wondered the same thing. Then, I send a link to that post to the person who asked it by PM.

    If they're too lazy to go back and read the answer to their question in the original thread then it's their own fault.
