crossposting

A forum for a different hobby that I frequent allows for crossposting by having the entire thread visible in multiple sub-forums. Kind of like a hard link in *nix.

As an example, the same exact thread could be seen in a medium and genre forum. Would this be of interest here?

I suppose part of the discussion should also be if this would be remotely possible given the forum server software.

Re: crossposting

Yes it is permitted but generally only in a subject and a medium forum as you suggest.

Re: crossposting

Really? How do you do it here? I've thought that one had to have two separate threads, just about the same subject?

Re: crossposting

Yes, simply post again in another forum adding "X-Posted from zzzz forum" to the title. Here's the section from the Member Agreement:
