Scott, I think the links are justified in that your original thread is under the "General" forum not here in the "Rules" forum and also because people wouldn't necessarily be aware that the thread now contains the answers to the questions posed by just looking at the thread's title - I think this is the case with the OP.
Mebe, I guess.
I would suggest editing the original title of your thread to show that answers have been given...
That is a good idea.
Thanks for the suggestion.
