    General Forum Questions

    Hi all,

    This thread is dedicated to all members who have any questions/suggestions/advices regarding Data Compression´s forum.
    It´s not designed for specifically targeted questions about particular algorithms/softwares and so on. It´s only for member´s questions about this sub-forum.

    For example: "Can I have multiple forum accounts under the same email address?" OR "Why I am unable to edit already sended PM?"
    It´s not for questions such as "I need PAQ GUI EXE implementation" OR "I´ve discovered a flaw in DEFLATE algorithm" and so on.

    Hopefully, this thread will help all members to quickly find appropriate answer to it´s questions or to resolve problems with forum usage.

    Best regards,
    CompressMaster

    I will be very glad if the forum would contain option to temporarily pause (or lock) thread.

    I need this feature, because I want to create the new thread, but I really don´t want to leave it opened for other members, at least so far.

    Thanks a lot.

    Why do we need dedicated threads for this? Unless they're sticky they'll just drop off the bottom and people will start a new one anyway. If they are sticky people will ask why we have half the first page taken up with sticky threads that almost never get any traffic.

    I think it makes more sense to just start a new thread if and when the need arises.
