Was searching through the forum archives the other day in search of help with a problem. I came across a few postings/threads that had multiple suggestions for the OP. But, in the end, the OP never responded back what they found to have worked, resolved their problem. You know...as Paul Harvey once opined: "The Rrrrest of the story!"
Is it asking too much for us who seek the valuable help/lessons from folks on the forum who are far more savvy than ourselves to bring closure to our problem? What was found to be 'The Red X'? Which of the several suggestions led to successful resolution? Or, did you find an alternative solution not mentioned in the threads that brought successful closure?
Or did you give up? Sell it for parts? Throw it away? Had it repaired by someone else and payed the big bucks for the solution without getting details on what was done? Or, that rainy day for trying some of the ideas never came? What?
Maybe it's just me. When I read about a problem that I can identify having encountered myself, then read of all the things tried...of one's own ideas or those offered by others...I like to read the happy ending! Surely the misery of the problem-poser is not left unresolved...or, is it? Well, duh!...too often, it seems, it's so!
IMHO, it would be courteous and far more helpful if we took the time not only to ask for help, but to finally respond back how our problem was resolved. And give final thanks and kudos to all who stepped up!
