What value is there in questions from listeners?
« on: 13/09/2009 23:36:32 »
They are in all sections of the forum. Questions addressed to "Chris" or the TNS radio show. Most of them have no input from the question asker and some of the questions do need clarification to progress or make sure you are answering the question the person thinks they are asking.

It is at times harder to put your question down "on paper" that it is just to speak it.

So what value is there in such questions? Questions with no input. Questions the asker may actually want "Chris" or TNS radio show to answer, and not some unknown person of no trustworthy value to them.

(and why does the spell checker what to hyphenate so many words?)

Those questions may well be answered on the radio show and as I understand it, when a question is displayed on the forum, the listener is emailed about it. They can then come see for any comments and hopefully it will encourage them to join the forum too.

Neil is right, as he often is.

Also, it allows questions to be discussed that we may not be able to/have opportunity to answer on the show.

Plus, we can include comments from the forum on the show when we do get chance to answer them - our chance to thank & credit you guys on air.
