Told me, kindly, that I am doing the post wrong and creating to many of them. I appreciate her letting me know, but tried to get in touch with you, as I didn't want to create another unnecessary post, like I'm doing now.
Please send me to a help menu, so that I can do this right. When I first respond to a post, it gives me the option to respond, then it doesn't seem to if someone else responds to the same post. I could be looking at it wrong. Should I go into another section, join a group or keep a listing, like it mentioned that had a group of friends you were linked to?
I don't want to cause any problems on this very helpful site, so please let me know. If I don't hear from you, I'll just stop doing individual posts, that address different issues, as that seems to be the problem.
I think that El was suggesting that you make your responses on your own threads (i.e. Topic), without creating new topics.
We have help on how to make a post, or create a topic, but not much guidance on how to organize your messages.
Most people who create a topic will reply on the same topic to the responders. When you start a new topic to reply to those responders, it can be hard to figure out where to respond since there are now two (or more) topics that are discussing the same subject.
Therefor, the best way to keep things organized is to reply using the "Respond to this message" link. There are two, one in the first post, one in the last post of the topic thread.
If you have additional questions, don't hesitate to ask.
I just received a message from EI and also yourself. I am doing what EI suggested, but in regards to when she said, "Just respond to the original post." I don't know if she means the last one that we had messages on, which was under Open Forum, titled, "Peggy's Monogamy Book For Me." Or one of my first original messages on Open Forum, posted as "Memories Have Come Back After 23 Years, Help!" I don't want to bother her with this question again, she has been so helpful to me, as have so many other's on this forum.
So, where do I post the rest of my questions, under which posting? Then, I promise, I'll get it right. I am so sorry for all the confusion that I've caused.
Obviously there's a lot of leeway here... El is not going to cut off communication if you don't get the thread she meant.
However, I think the easiest place to respond will be your most active thread, the one titled "Peggy's Monogamy Book for Me?".
The idea is to put the posts that go with your topic on the thread that you started under that topic.
For example, if you started a topic called "How to talk to my husband", then any response that people will make will be on that topic, and when you respond to those posts you should put your responses in that thread.
However, if you start another topic called "The OW keeps calling my house", then responses to that thread should be put there, while responses to the first topic should go to that thread.
This helps to organize the "conversations" even when they are in parallel to each other.
