? about which forum to post questions in

Hey everybody, I'm new here and don't want to annoy y'all by posting in the wrong place (which doesn't bode well for getting answers either!). I've been working primarily in Sigil to do an ebook, but I also work in text editors and Word, whatever. So is the general idea to come here when I have a Sigil related issue and to go to the Workshop forum when I have a non-Sigil question? And what is up with the "sticky" threads. And btw I love it here!

If it's a general question pertaining to a particular format (ePub MOBI, etc...), then it's probably best to ask in the appropriate format's subforum. If it's ebook in general (non-format specific) then the Workshop would make sense. This forum is generally reserved for stuff like "how do I do this with Sigil?", "Why does Sigil do X?" and "can Sigil do Y?" and/or "can the next version of Sigil include Z?"

Basically... if it's a question where Sigil isn't really relevant to the question OR the likely answer, then it probably belongs elsewhere (even if Sigil is what you happen to be using when a non-Sigil-related question arises).

There will be bleed-over, of course. But just avoid shoe-horning non-Sigil-related questions in here simply because you think more (or the right) people will notice it and you'll be golden.

Sticky's are just topics/threads that stick to the top of the list - instead of getting replaced with newer posts. It keeps important topics where people can easily find them.

If you have a Sigil related question, how to use the product etc., this is the place.

If it is a general ePub related question then you can use the ePub forum...there are SOME smart people that can answer questions on ePubs over there...but not too many...if they were really smart they would be using Sigil!!

Workshop seems to be a generalized forum. Writer is for author related issues. Apple devices if you have a question for them...etc.

There is a short description of each forum under the title of the forum itself that should help guide you around.


Cheers!

Which, by the way, leads me to the fact that you should actually look for the answer before posting the question, it might be already there

I would like to add another hint even if it is somewhat off topic.

There are a lot of people that dislike 'top posting'. Some of them can be quite harsh in their critic. so I thought I would just mention it before someone else does it.

With 'top posting' I mean the way to post an answer to a quote above the quote.

The natural order to read a post for most is:

- read the quote to learn what the post is talking about
- read the answer to the quote.

When someone post their answer above the quote, you have to look down first and then up again to read the post.

From my point of view: If this way of posting is your style, go for it, but know that someday someone might get irritated. If you just never thought about it, you could do so now and make an informed decision later.

I didn't even realize I was "top posting." But now that you've explained it to me I won't do it anymore. Thanks!
