Validating my existance
8th July 2002
Ein-7919, I figured I'd keep posting in the same thread and not spam the boards with multiple "HELP ME" topics.
And instead you post a bunch of "HELP ME" posts in the same thread. Better how?
Persistence sometimes does pay off (especially if you're not too obnoxious about it). And thank you Ori-Kaal for your answer. I'm off to try that out right now (I only have the BigPOP file viewer as it is...maybe that's my problem).
True, but it can be really obnoxious. And being obnoxious doesn't make people feel very inclined to help.

Because then you don't have 6 different threads by the same person who is asking the same question. And last time I checked, spamming the boards with multiple threads that have the same content is a great way to either 1) get banned and 2) have those threads instantly deleted. My posts in this thread was more of a bumping action to get it exposure to more people. If more people read the thread, the more likely it is to get an answer (from the way my thread was responded to, I feel that not a whole lot of people cared about the music or just didn't know about the problem that I faced...but there were people who did know, they just needed to see the thread). And I could have sworn that bumping a thread is a legitimate method to making sure it gets read and responded to.
Anyways, I have a possible solution via Ori-Kaal. So now I can let this thread die.
