Angry Mods, IEC Questions need own threads!

There are over 2500 replies in the IEC thread. It is impossible to find answers.

Obviously there is a need to put different IEC questions into their own threads or own section.

A previous question i posted as a new thread has just been moved into the inane mass of replies in that thread.

There are many valid questions that are going unanswered as they get swamped with people posting replies to other questions like "Whoo whos going to vancouver?" replies consiting of "Me" "me also" "yeah i am to. whoo"

Having to search through all the useless chaff is unnecessarily annoying.

Why not send a PM or e-mail instead of starting a pointless thread?

To see if other people agree the need for it? or if its just me.

A PM would ask the opinion of one, whereas a pointless thread might get people saying....

"whooo!" "I agree" "yeahhhhh" "Me to" :P

What's pointless about a thread offering a reasonable suggestion?

Maybe I have missed something in the forum guidelines, whereby someone should not start a thread attempting to debate a possible forum improvement. I did the same some time back and it was well received the admins, minus any supposedly witty retorts.

The have been plenty of threads in her about IEC issues and as far as I know there's nothing to stop people posting more (I've posted several myself). If people choose to post in the large IEC thread, that's their shout.

I think the OP has a fair point if questions are being moved into the mass thread and (inadvertently) buried.

Although the "search" button is not to be underestimated either

I don't see any replies like that in the IEC thread

Unfortunately, because of the time of year, we have a lot of new members joining just to ask IEC related questions at the moment, and if we left those questions as standalone threads, the whole immigration forum would be taken over by them! Which I'm sure you'll agree is hardly fair on everybody else, particularly our longer term members whose questions would very quickly be moved on to page 2 of the forum.

If it's an unusual question or something specific to that person then we may leave the thread, but otherwise we're moving them to the IEC threads to keep everything together. Yours was a question about habitual residency iirc, which has been covered many times previously.

Anybody wishing to get an answer to an IEC related FAQ can then just search those threads, so it keeps all the info in one place. I hope that this clarifies why your thread was moved.

Lastly, I would like to ask you to please take the time to re-read the site rules, paying particular attention to no. 15. Any further issues, please PM us.

Thread closed.
