    Stupid question, but does this class as a post?

    I'm new to HEXUS, so I'm still trying to understand it!

    Yes, it does count as a post - but something triggered our (sensitive) spam filter so your posts were held in the moderation queue. I have now released them.

    Not really a full, proper post... more like a stake... although there's proper punctuation, capitalisation and decent spelling, so I could concede that it's at least a bollard.

    Welcome to the jungle forum!!

    hiya, and welcome

    HEXUS is one of the oldest PC Forums on the internet. It's almost all Hardware and tech related, and is effectively home for many people . It is a blessed relief from Facebook too ;-)

    We wish you a pleasant stay. If you have questions, ask

    Mostly, bar one or two recent folk trying their best to antagonise people.

    Welcome along!

    (And if you encounter someone who seems to defy understanding by obstinantly refusing to accept sound reason, give-up, walk away, don't waste your time trying to help educate them. Just as with fb some people are a lost cause and will only throw it back in your face.)

    Hmmm. "Is this a post?"


    Last time I saw a question like that was on a university matriculation philosophy paper.
    Noli nothis permittere te terere.

    This is a post:



    so if this is also a post, then digital words post == image of wood post, but a real wood post can only make paper which receives words and then gets put in the post. Wow this is deep...

    I'm gonna throw this in here too as I couldn't find a "welcome" thread. I'm new here too. A refugee, from a forum from the same group as Hexus actually! But it's dead, got a few people in it that rub each others ego, this forum however looks plenty full and active!

    Welcome to HEXUS.

    We do keep the question of a welcome thread under review, but generally we find that most people who come here are happy to either post a question/offer advice in the technical sections, or just post a comment on a topic of interest.
