    Someone posts a thread about about hedge trimmers and it gets moved after two hours. Then a couple weeks later someone else will post a similiar thread and it stays. I posted a thread about mini tillers a while back and it gets moved, couple days ago a guy posts similiar thread and it doesn't get moved! What's the deal? I know this is a commercial lawn care forum, but what does that include? I mean if the moderators are going to get picky then half the stuff in this forum should be moved to a general forum. Just like to know what can and can't be posted in this forum.

    This should get moved to the " LawnSite Announcements, Support & FAQ." forum. :rolleyes:

    Yes, this will get moved to the support forum.

    The reason threads are relocated is simple. The more we can keep the threads in the appropriate forum, the more organized we can be.
    As example: a pesticide question posted in the commercial forum, will indeed get relocated to the pest/fert forum.
    Now granted, not every thread will get moved to the correct forum. We are after all only human, so some threads will slip thru and maybe not get moved.

    Fair enough, maybee more of a clarification though. What some might consider part of commercial lawn care, others may not. The commercial forum gets more than double the reads the other forums do so there is a greater chance to get feedback on a question. I'm not trying to tell you how to do your job, just a thought.

    Yea but before you know it, your thread could be 5 pages down the line. That is how fast the commercial forum moves most of the time. It may be slower on the other sections but at least it stays on the front page longer
