It would be better wimbledon is you could not refer back to the parent post but rather post new into the thread you are in making it much easily to follow the projects. Do you mind doing that please?
I beg to differ in part. The "Parent Post" was created in the first place by going through all the "International" threads and selecting the African based threads to go into that PARENT POST. To go back to the PARENT POST there is a backwards link in each African thread. This makes it easy to navigate the African threads in two steps at a time; going Up and Down.
That said, if new information is found about say "Iron Ore in Africa", that info would not be added to the Parent Post but rather in this post called "Iron Ore Railways in Africa", and so on. This is what NSWGR8022 seems to be asking. The Parent POST only contains these links.
The PARENT POST is a bit like having an "International - Africa" topic, which can only be done by the moderators, if they had the time. There are about 50 countries in Africa which have or could have railways, plus a few special links such as "Ports and Rail" and "Iron Ore".
Finding the thread for say Senegal, requires you to find and enter the PARENT POST page, and select the link to Senegal. This page is only easy to find if it has been recently edited and hence appears on the "New Forum Posts" list.
If a link to the "PARENT POST - AFRICA" could be added to the top of the list of files, that would be nicer, but only the moderators can do this, I suppose.
