Guys

I am a bit of a technofobe so can anyone help me ?

How do I reply to an individual post so that the author knows I am replying to their question / comment rather tham my post just ending up at the bottom of the thread ?

Gary Fiddes,
Start by putting their name at the top!

Or you could email the person if they have their address enabled on details page. Click on the name and it takes you to the person's details page.

Just remember to sign your real name if you use a nick-name (which you dont seem to GF)

Wee Piglet,

Don't you ever sleep ?

GF, if you mean that your reply sits in a treeview type of hierarchy - you can't. Threads only have a flat structure so all replies just get tagged on at the end.

Well hello ratcatcher!!!

Dont understand a word you're saying like but hello anyway.

Chimp - tempted at first to try to explain ratcatcher's point in a way you'd understand.

But on reflection, why should I steal the glory from ratcatcher? Or attempt the impossible?

Guys

OK lets go for a nick name then : What about 3:30 or bust ?

I know exactly what you're saying ratcatcher. And in fact the old style forums (BC, or Before Chimp) used to have 'nested threads' so you could have substructures to each thread. This meant that instead of chucking your own little comment into the big pool of contributions never knowing exactly where it would end up, you could tag your reply onto the person you really wanted to talk to.

There was much pleading when the new style forum came along to get RW to give us this feature back but alas we have not been heard.
Maybe time to start a campaign?

I'm hurt Laura :-(

Well I think I am but you've started talking ratcatcher but I'll assume the mention of my name means trouble.

Hey I'm all for Champaigne!!

(Oh, it says campaign, never mind)

Look!!!(excited) ratcatcher's face has just appeared. Thank god somebody else has a face and not some cartoon character, animal or (in your case chimp) just a tantalising blank. That's you, me and Glenn still with faces, and wanting nesting threads.
Campaign starting...

Chimp, stalked any HRM users lately?

A campaign for real faces!
