    ICM Forum: Guidelines/FAQ

    Hi all,

    Pls do not create one thread for every query. This is 1) making the forum look displeasing 2) creating technical problems for us. So, please don't create too many threads! Often you won't have to because we may already have a relevant topic created for you. First have a look around and browse the older topics to see if there's another topic similar to the one you have in mind. For example, if you want to post a query on 'Annamacharya Keertana', don't just go ahead and create a new topic! If you browse thru the older topics, you'll find that we already have a topic on 'Annamacharya Keerthanas' containing many useful information. See if contains answers to your query, if not.. go ahead and post a response in THAT thread. Following this practise helps in several ways:

    * keeping all requests/queries organized means that our inhouse experts like Lakshman,meera,etc. have only a few places to look and answer your queries. You may get responses faster!

    * having few threads will extend the time it takes for your queries to get pushed into archives. (Yes, new threads go into archives after they age.)

    * More importantly, too many threads is just fattening our database and slowing down access speed for everyone.

    We look forward to your cooperation. Thanks!

    Here are links to some threads for your common queries:
