Question/Thread Lost

Hi Everyone,

Earlier I posted a question/thread. But now I cannot find it I am new on the site, so Im not sure if it has been deleted or the name has been changed I don't.

I did though receive the below email with the link:

Latexman (Chemical) has responded to the question "Temperature Rise in a
Semi-Batch" in the Chemical process engineering forum in Eng-Tips.

Come to http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=432631 to view.

Could I please be assisted on the matter.

RE: Question/Thread Lost

I suspect that had been red flagged as a probable / possible student post.

His response was " this looks like a student post"....

If it isn't you're going to need to explain a bit more who you are and why you're asking such a basic question.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Question/Thread Lost

Thanks LittleInch,

Now does that mean I need to re-post the question with an explanation why I am asking the basic question?

RE: Question/Thread Lost

I think I said, "Sorry, we won't do your homework", or something like that, and then gave the following link:

Posting Policies

When someone joins the website that day, and their first post asks a sophomoric question that any graduate ChE can do without looking at their textbook from their first ChE class in University, it's usually a student's homework question. If it is not, I apologize. If it is, please don't post. You are more than welcome to search, read, and learn.

Good luck,

To a ChE, the glass is always full - 1/2 air and 1/2 water.
