I just posted a message on the Logos 6 forum. My wife and I are traveling to Israel next month and I asked for recommendations on Logos resources that could be useful.

I checked back in a few minutes to see if there were any replies and my post was AWOL. Just couldn't find it. I checked the link from the automatic email notice confirming that I had posted and found my message in the General forum instead of Logos 6.

I'm not particularly offended or anything. Maybe the topic fits better under the General forum heading. But was this relocation a heuristic robotic auto-classification thing? Did a moderator move it?

Or am I too old to use a computer any more; do I just think I was on the Logos 6 forum when I was really logged into the General?

Am I losing my marbles?

Steve,

It appears to have been moved to the general forum where you will hopefully receive more input. Enjoy your trip. I have been privileged to go twice and would go again if I could!

A moderator would have moved it for the reasons already given (now you may get even more input!).

As far as I know it would have been moved either by a logos employee, or perhaps MVP's have that privilege.

When creating a new thread, it is best to post in the appropriate forum for a number of reasons. 

  1. You are more likely to get the help you need. I spend almost no time in the Android forum... I have never owned an Android device and most of the time would have little to add to a thread in that forum. I do, however, spend quite a bit of time in the iOS forum. In addition to using the iOS mobile apps daily, I am also a beta tester. By posting in the right forum you are more likely to find knowledgable volunteer users willing to help out. 
  2. FL employees tend to focus on the forums which apply to their specific area. For example: Posting questions about Vyrso RESOURCES is best to be asked in the Vyrso forum. The Vyrso staff are very unlikely to see a post in any other forum. 
  3. Others who might have similar questions are more likely to find their answer in YOUR thread when it is in the "right" place. Sometimes you don't have to ask a question because it has already been asked. Keeping the forums "tidy" helps people to find what they need. 

In the case of your post, you were asking something that had nothing to do with Logos 6 (the desktop software engine)... Instead you were wanting resource recommendations. That is a "general" question in that it doesn't fit into any of the other categories.
