Regional Forum "start new thread", "what country menu"?

Travel Forums System Talk Regional Forum "start new thread", "what country menu"?

Hey Peter or Sam,

Is that drop-down menu (when starting a new thread in the Regional Forums) new?

I never noticed it before, but then again I don't start too many threads in the regional Forums.

Waht you select a country form the drop-down menu, what happens? Does it still post to the forum? Or does it go to a travel helper?, ???

I just checked the drop-down menu that I think you are referring to, Jeffrey. When I click 'Start New Thread" and the entry page comes up, that drop-down menu already says "Ask the Travel Helpers". I believe the thread is posted in the forum, and if you choose a country/area, those travel helpers are notified of said new thread.

Am I close S&P?

On the money isadora!

It only shows in the regional forums, because that's the only place where threads that are relevant to travel helpers should be posted. Originally it was in all forums, but as a travel helper for Australia, I don't want to be notified every time someone is looking for a Travel Companion :)

It helps greatly to get good quick responses, because all the most helpful people for that country immediately find out about the thread.

If you think we could describe that dropdown clearer, I'm open to suggestions

Peter

Just a thought. Maybe "Alert the Travel Helpers"
