Seeking advice:

Seeking advice:

Didn't find your answer?

We seem to get quite a few questions starting "Seeking advice: ".  It is a superfluous phrase - as is "Help needed" - for anyone posting a question.

Is this some recommendation by AWeb for non-accountant members of the public to identify themselves in the hope of obtaining a less terse response?

It is usually followed by a question from someone with income over £100k expecting advice for nothing.

Luckily, Accounting Web has Tim who quickly points out the error of their ways.

Posting a response

Just posting a response to this query. Thought I'd better label it clearly so no-one got confused and thought I was juggling three elephants or learning the didgeridoo.

Although 'Posting a response' could be used to identify on-topic answers. He says in an off-topic way.
