Question Forum which one to post in ?

When I have a question about my Craftsman, such as...this broke now how the heck do I fix it, should I post it in the "Snowblower Repairs and Maintenance Forum" or the "Craftsman Snowblower Forum" ?

I wish I knew. I tend to just use the "Active Topics" or "New Posts" links so I tend to not even noticed which section stuff is posted in.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I'd post it in the Craftsman section.

And Shryp, I do the same thing.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

This forum is currently small enough that I don't thing anyone hangs out in any particular section. "Anywhere" you post we will all see it.

As far as what's appropriate, I'd say either way works. If it was a Tecumseh motor problem post in the maintenance section. If you are having trouble with the tractor section I'd post in the brand specific section.

My opinion: If its a about a repair, for *any* brand of snowblower, it would make the most sense to put it in the "Snowblower Repairs and Maintenance Forum"..
if its more a "general" Craftsman question, specific to Craftsman snowblowers, like craftsman model numbers, craftsman features, etc, it would go in the Craftsman forum..

ask yourself: "what is my question really about? is it about fixing a snowblower?, or is it something that relates to Craftsman snowblowers specifically?"

sure, many questions are "gray areas"..but usually it can clearly swing one direction or the other, to decide which forum is more appropriate..

In this case, its much more about "general repairs" than it is anything specific to the Craftsman brand..so.."Snowblower Repairs and Maintenance Forum" makes more sense IMO..

I suppose one very good reason to post in the general repair section over the brand specific section is that the manufacturer of your blower may have nothing to do with the brand that is on it. I good example would be any question relating to a John Deer blower. Is far as I know Jon Deer has never manufactured any snowblower ever for themself.
