It would be cool if they had to view the first post for a minimum of 60 seconds, then check a box that they'd read it before being allowed to post.This is a great thread. Maybe the mods can make it required reading before someone is allowed to post, though I don't know how that would be implemented.
i dont no if this is the right place to post this but i want the best ever 500+ lumen light that is very small takes one normal AA battery costs less than $15 and has at least a 5yr warranty which light should i get
Very excellent points and I might add, if you find any misspellings or other typos in your posts, even if it's months later, edit the post and fix them. Always proofread your written content.Here are a few things that I've come across recently:
- If the beginning of your post starts with something like "Maybe I'm missing something here, but ...", you probably are. I would suggest searching and reading more before posting your topic.
- Use the 'Preview Post' button. If your post looks bad, silly, or offensive while you're reading it in the "Preview" window, it is.
- And if you're in an argument and have to post your resume in order to back up your point, you've already lost.
There was nothing negative here for you to post about - my previous post certainly shows no hatred, and moreover, was posted last August.I think the most important thing is to treat others how you would want to be treated. I don't know if I've had my blinkers on in the past but recently it seems there's a lot of silly arguments.
Spread lumens not hate!

Part of how I treat others as I wish to be treated is to try and write in a clearly understandable fashion, with as few misspellings as possible and without any undue needling. Having your blinkers on is a mistake - realizing they're on and not doing anything about it is careless at best.
Thirdly, the positively obscure:
- Never ask for the best - If you ask "What's the best" without specifying a budget or a classification, you will get recommendations for lights that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. It never ceases to fail. The OP gets mad, starts lashing out at posters, posters respond in kind, the thread gets closed and people get banned. Not a happy thing. It's better to ask, "What can I get for $100, I need the best throw I can get."
How do I post a named link (not sure what it's called - tiny url?)?. I remember reading something about it in the forum rules, so tried going advanced and clicked on the globe icon, but it doesn't seem to shorten the link much. I've searched CPF and even scrolled through the sticky's. (There really are a LOT of sticky's by the way. Kind of defeats the purpose?) Anyway, thanks in advance for the input!
