I'm having problems replying to my post.
I have 1 reply. When I click the Reply link I'm required to have a Subject for the reply.
Why would I need to have a subject for a reply to an existing post?

There are a lot of forums out there and many work this or that way. This one is that other way.

Sorry, can't see that changing.

The most helpful thing to readers is to see a subject that

fits the text of the message. If you're replying to someone, type in something other than what they used and try to make it relevant to the body of your own message. If you're adding additional information to your own message, you can type in a subject such as "addendum" or similar. Making it easier for the potential reader to know where you'll be going is a good idea.

That depends on what url. Anything that - in the context - looks like an ad or SEO is not permitted. Off-topic links aren't permitted.. Repeatedly posting the same link, even if on-topic, isn't allowed either.

Hi sir Kees_B so you mean I don't have priority to put links on my message, I just wanted to put links sometimes? Please give me some info.

Kind regards,
