So, the questions are located at Post #52
OK... So, the questions are located at Post #52.
Currently, a Badminton session is awaiting for me to attend.
Will look at those questions later.
Meanwhile, perhaps our BCers can comment/answer on those 2 questions.
BTW, any comments/answers are just our opinions.
No one here can say "I am right, you are wrong".

thats why i want mod/kwun to define this
i want to avoid such a problem in future
because i don know everything about badminton
thats why i ask like:
how old will be the top 4 md pair in 2010?
what is the squad of ina in ajc/wjc+olympic youth 2010?
i didnt face any problem before when asking question
and i dont know if asking question is a problem until that post
is that the U in that sentence cause the problem?

What kind of definition are you looking for???..
a. serious definition
b. funny/LOL/ROFL definition
c. puzzling definition
d. sarcastic definition
e. Merriam-Webster.com definition
f. all of the above (oh, wait, is that even possible???)..

if mod/kwun say,yes,asking question to others member will put it mildly, not suitable and bordering on being personal
then i wont ask any question in this entire forum again(even like,anyone have xyz tournament software link)
if kwun/mod say,no,its ok to ask
then i continue to ask.
i am seriously asking this and hope for the answer from kwun/mod
because i had asked hundreds(if not thousands) of question in this forum
if there is any problem，then i am the source of problem
oh ya,does anyone face this kind of problem when asking a question like:
do u know why xyz withdrawed from efg tournament?

Regarding Post #52
Below is Post #52;
Qu.1. we cant use i,you when posting?
Answer 1. Of course we can use 'I' and 'You" when posting. But try to use it less, so that we talk about the topic, and not about ourselves. Let's look at this example below.
(a) If Mr.A says to Mr.B; "Lin Dan is a good player". Here, Mr.A wants to talk about Lin Dan. It's all about Lin Dan.
(b) If Mr.A says to Mr.B; "Do you agree with me that Lin Dan is a good player?". Here, Mr.A wants to find out what Mr.B thinks about Lin Dan. It's not about Lin Dan anymore. It's now about Mr.B's thoughts.
Qu.2. we cannot ask question to any member in this forum?
Answer 2. Of course we can ask question to any member in this forum. Don't see why we are not allowed to ask questions.
Qu.3. is asking question = disagree?
Answer 3. No. Asking a question does not mean that we disagree. Don't see why by asking a question, we are expressing disagreement.

Is my post/comment having anything to do with the title of the thread?
BCers here are always expressing our own opinions. There is nothing wrong with that. We are free to give our opinions.
However, before we submit our posts, we need to check:
Is my post/comment having anything to do with the title of the thread?
In an equipment thread, BCers should be talking about equipment.
In a coaching thread, BCers should be talking about techniques/training/tactics.
In a injuries thread, BCers should be talking about injuries.
In a Lin Dan thread, BCers should be talking about Lin Dan.
We get disorientated if we don't check what thread we are in.
Just look at some Lee Chong Wei threads. BCers are often talking about Lin Dan there. It seems that the thread is no longer about LCW, but about LD.
Also look at this thread:
It started with "i give a yell, and most of the time, it goes in, the last last last game i played, the guy i was playing with says i was cheating because it *distracted* him".
Somehow, that thread has become a discussion of 'ALL' yelling/shouting.
* Yelling - to add more power into a shot
* Yelling - to communicate with partners in a game of Doubles
* Yelling - when under tremendous stress to reach the shuttlecock
* Yelling - when in agony or pain
* etc, etc, ...

This is getting silly. Am I the only one who finds this constant proselytising tiresome? "Play nice, children, and whatever you do, be sure never to wander off topic."
As it happens, in that thread, the so-called "off topic" discussion actually turned out to be precisely on-topic, as the original poster clarified.
It's perfectly natural for a thread to change course. What starts as a specific question will often expand into a more general discussion. The general discussion is usually more interesting and educational than the specific query.
These are, after all, discussion boards. Nobody condones rampant personal attacks, but that good sentiment does not excuse bossing people around in the name of peacekeeping.
Tolerance is a two-way street, you know.

If not talking on-topic, then start your own topic
Let's digress a bit more;
If a BCer who wants to talk about a Malaysian player (by starting a particular Malaysian player's thread), but later finds that BCers are starting to talk more about other players (in his/her thread), surely we can suggest to them that they are in the wrong thread.
If not talking on-topic, then start your own topic. Why change the the specific topic?
This is just my opinion.

Recently some BCers want to comment on what Singapore cannot do
Currently, our regular BCer, Loh, is disappointed with some responses in his thread:
Singapore Also Can
Recently some BCers want to comment on what Singapore cannot do.
IMHO, why disturb Loh's thread. Why not start your on thread to talk about what Singapore cannot do?

Is grunting, yelling and screaming during play considered not good for Badminton?.
And I have created a new thread for this topic:
Is grunting, yelling and screaming during play considered not good for Badminton?

At one extreme, we allow any discussion in any thread. Taken to its logical conclusion, we might as well have one giant mega-thread containing 1.3 million posts.
At the other extreme, we take a "topic-Nazi" approach. Taken to its logical conclusion, we should only allow "singleton" threads of one post. Then no one can ever go off-topic.
Clearly, both of these are stupid ways to organise information. Instead, we take a pragmatic approach which disallows blatant topic-hijacking, while remaining tolerant of topics expanding during the course of a discussion.
That's how conversation works.
