Seems like there's basically no posting going on here. What am I going to have to do, start posting my shots again and asking for others thoughts? I basically haven't played for five months but I can get back into the saddle again if need be.

The worst thing someone can do is post for the sake of posting. The second to worst thing is to post bad information.

Probably the other way around. A post for the sake of posting at least has a chance of enticing beneficial information for someone, whereas bad information helps no one.

LOL, I guess it could go that way, but I did think about that one for awhile before posting it. My take is that bad information can be corrected right away by another post. Posts for the sake of posting are useless and take up people's time. I guess this thread is turning out to be pretty useless, right? I'd better get out of here before I contribute to the uselessness.

I know it's difficult and most people don't want to do it but it would be very helpful ( both to instructors and posters) if your question was accompanied by video.
Pictures (such as those Dr Cue) puts up are nice but one huge factor involved in trying to help someone is knowing what their current ability level is.
The advice given to a D player might differ greatly to that given to a B player. Even regarding the same or a similar question.
In some cases the problems are with fundamentals or they could be more related to decision making.
So I'd urge anyone looking for help to post any available video if at all possible.

I see questions in the Main Forum, and guess that people go there (mainly!) and forget to post here.
