    What’s the difference between the AskWoody Lounge, AskWoody blog, and the Forums?

    I’m never sure where to search for information or ask a question. Sometimes I’ve asked a question in the Lounge & sometimes in the Forums. What determines which one to use?

      Lounge and the forums are the same thing.  Forums @ AskWoody Anything under there is called lounge/forums.

      The blog/newsletter allows you to comment and those are automatically generated here: Forum: AskWoody blog @ AskWoody

      As a general rule if you have a question, it’s best to ask in the Forum: AskWoody support @ AskWoody  support section.  Let us know if  you have questions?

      The blog part of the site is what you see when you go to http://www.askwoody.com. It contains tech news that is deemed important for our members. At the highest level, Lounge and Forum are interchangeable terms for the Q&A part of the site. If you click on “Forums” in the top navigation bar you get a list of all the Forums (topical areas). You may use that list or the list of actions in the right navigation area to see specific questions or some predefined searches.

      When you want to post something new, navigate to the forum (topical area) which most closely relates to your question and use the form at the bottom of the page to create a new topic. Don’t worry. A moderator or admin will move your post if it really belongs somewhere else. You’ll get a feel for it rather quickly.

      That’s a really good answer – succinct and clear.
