    Hi folks - I'm very new to computers as opposed to most folks here I know & much less computer savvy. And I have a lot to learn about computer forums as well.

    Here is my question I hope somebody will answer for me....& please cut me a little slack because I'm basically new to this.

    OK - I started a thread within the last 12 hours sometime under this topic that had to do with the Windows Media Player program on my computer that I have a lot of music on. I asked if there was a way that I could E-mail a piece of music I have in my WMP to a friend or send it to them in some other fashion.

    I saw that quite a few people read my question (or maybe it just means they clicked on it.....saw how it started & moved on), but nobody replied. Obviously the reason I joined this forum is because I wanted to learn things from people that are much more computer savvy than I which I'm sure is most of the folks that use this forum. So if nobody answers my question....well, whats the point.....I guess I should just try to research this on the net & see what I can come up with.

    But it seems to me that my question is basically a softball compared to some of the extremely complicated stuff that is disccussed here.

    Anyway, this is what I'd like to know now if anybody would take the time to let me know. Is the reason that I got no answer to this due to the fact that it would be considered me giving a friend of mine a piece of music that they didn't have to pay for which I've read is a topic of discussion these days.

    Or is it just a very uninteresting question, or a question that makes people think....this guy is clueless if he aleady doesn't know the answer to the question he asked. I'd really like to know this so I can understand if I am just using the forum wrong, or putting my question under the wrong heading, or what.

    I'm obviously sorta lost & trying to find my way here. I guess if I get no replies to this one either, I will get the message & either just do the best I can about researching things on the net instead of asking them on this forum (I do like the idea of these forums because I think in many cases it just saves one so much time).

    Instead of spending a lot of time on research - have somebody who knows what the deal is just let u know.

    Anway - I'm pretty sure that one forum rule is that the shorter the post....the more chance u have that somebody will read it & respond to it....& I've broken that unwritten rule in this post already...so I'll leave it at......I sure would appreciate it if somebody will let me know if anything I've said here is relevant or if I should just give up on trying to use a tech forum until I become more computer savvy. Thanks for your time & patience.

    Unfortunately, it's a request that we can't help with due to copyright issues so I've had to close the other thread.

    But to give you a better understanding of how forums work, your thread was only started seven hours ago and it was in the middle of the night (3:13 a.m.) so it's quite premature to think that you might not get any replies. Generally speaking, it's proper to wait 24 hours and then if no one has replied you can post again to effectively "bump" your request back to the top of the particular forum. :)

    As Cookiegal stated very clearly it is best to wait for a reply and to again post in the ORIGINAL thread to bump it up to the top of the Forum after a 24 hour period. Do not start another thread as some newbies have done with the same question. You have come to the right place for all your computer ?'s. Welcome :)
