    more than a question abt same drama in a thread in Gerneral Members Discussions?

    I am watching British TV drama House of Cards. I may have some questions about British life, attire, etc. Those are not language questions. May I ask more than a question about this TV drama in the same thread now and then, or I should start a new thread to ask for each question?

    I wouldn't like to flood the section with all my threads and to grab too much attention there, so I prefer asking in a thread about the SAME drama.

    Please advise.

    We much prefer you to ask about one topic per thread, Threads dealing with more than one question can become very messy.

    If you ask five questions and different people answer different questions in random order, then other people comment on the different answers as they come in, a thread quickly becomes unreadable.

    I wouldn't like don't want to flood the section with all my threads and to grab too much attention there, so I would prefer asking to ask several questions in a thread about the SAME drama in one thread.

    Please advise me.
    See above.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You're right about General Members Discussions being the appropriate forum for such questions, but – as advised – only one topic per thread, please, and to avoid flooding, not more than three a day, or jacob123 will want to know why.
