Posted:PLEASE put this on one of the hundreds of other colored/coloured flames threads.

You should have done a search.

Since you didn't do a search, HoP did a search for you when you tried to post something with this title.

HoP then told you that there were many other appropriate threads and that you should post on one of them.

You ignored that and insisted on posting it anyway.

Now, when someone else searches for coloured flames they may end up with your, one post, thread rather than the many other comprehensive threads and FAQs that have already been posted.

Sorry to be cranky but Malcolm (and I assume Dom) have spent time rewriting this website to prevent exactly this from happening.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
