This was a dead thread because if you noticed the threadstarter never posted back. Also you people have given about eight hundred different types of advice that I wouldn't agree with any except for maybe one.
Actually, by that definition, this thread has been dead since the 6th of June, the day the thread was made, when the threadstarter stopped posting back on this thread.
And the whole point of threads is to get eight hundred different responses. Then you can choose which ones are the best.
When the whole section is almost dead and most people just lurk around for a few minutes and much of the action is someone bluntly reprimanding people for outside links and grammar, a little more activity is always good.
