I posted a question about Eastern Turkey in the Africa/Middle east forum. I choose to "ask the travel helpers" and selected "Turkey." Does that mean that all the Turkey travel helpers will receive my question (post) in their message center mailbox? Or do they get a notice saying to check the forum? or what?

Hopefully they all receive the question, so then there is no need to select an individual travel helper and send a private message to that person. because they will have already received my question. Is that right?

Also, kind of the same question, but one time I received a message form someone asking me about Burma (i'm a Burma travel helper), could that message just have been a posted question that the person choose "ask a travel helper - Burma" or if the question was directed to me in my message cenetr mailbox would it have to have been a individual message written to me?

I'm a little unsure how this "travel helper" thing really works?

Same question basically. Just read this bit if info:

"Alternatively, you can also post a new thread in the travel forums. If you specify a country when posting your new topic, all Travel Helpers for that country will be notified."

But again, I'm not sure if the all the travel helpers will receive my post as a message in their mailbox? or just a notice that a question has been asked in a certain thread? or If there is something in the message that they are "notified" with says if I asked a travel helper or it just looks like a sent them a PM asking a question?

I signed up as a travel helper but I also have the 'email notification' thingy on. I get tons of questions for North America, but find I can only help with a small percentage :( Usually it say in my email "So-and-so" has posted a question in the North America forum which you are a travel helper for...etc..Usually when they are just pm'ing me, I don't get that notification thing-a-ma-bob.

(Jeff, what I am trying to type makes perfect sense in my head, I swear! ;))

Thanks, I guess that's the difference. When it says, "so & so, posted a question in the N. amer forum..." then is the question right there in the mail?

Ok, thanks. You must get more action as a North America helper, than Myanmar or Namibia

Yeah, I get a lot, but There are really only 3 states I know lots about...maybe 10 I can help a little on..and the rest...nada :(
So I think...maybe 1 out of 15 that I can offer some help too.

I guess you don't get too many people asking about your little peninsula up there? I found it on the map a while back, and really think it should be part of Wisconsin. How did Michigan snake that little part?

The creation of the U.P. (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) ;)

In the beginning dere was nuttin'.
Den...

On da FIRST day, God created da UP.

On da SECOND day, He created da partridge, da deer, da bear, da fish, and da ducks.

On da THIRD day, He said "Let dere be Yoopers to roam da Upper Peninsula."

On da FOURTH day, God created da udder world down below.

On da FIFTH day, He said "Let dere be trolls to live in da udder world down below."

On da SIXTH day, He created da bridge, so da trolls would have a way to get to heaven.

God saw it was good and on da SEVENTH day, He went huntin'.
