You are at home ... the family is sitting around ... you cannot find your car keys ... you shout ...

Has anybody seen my car keys???

You are likely to get a quick answer - NO. Yes, on the bench. Or maybe not.

That's what the forum "shout box" is for .... but, any other members currently logged into the forum will have no idea where you left your car keys.

More relevant questions might be ....

Is DX Summit down?
Does Logic have a Log form for the Oceania DX contest?
Is WAJA the same as "worked all prefectures" in JA?

If there are other members currently using the form, they MAY hear your shout and answer - or maybe not - they are logged in, but away from their PC, making a cup of tea, or moving the "arm-strong" rotator to better hear the DX.

Don't "shout" a question for which a long discussion may be needed. The whole purpose of a forum is to "share the experience" - allow others to share in constructive answers to your questions. If you need to ask a question, it is certain there are others who also need the answer. Starting a new topic in an appropriate place in the forum, might be more relevant for ....

How do I submit my log for the ARRL DX CW contest? or
Why are there question marks and extra text in the Cabrillo export header?

Happy typing at the forum.

PS ... my younger brother would always say "Yes. What are you offering?"
