My thread was about using an old drive. Current Hardware, I thought. No, Genius Bar ("lobby" not Hardware). Seems arbitrary to me. It probably all makes perfect sense to you.
Current hardware is for the discussion of current Apple computer products (other Apple products have their dedicated areas). A new thread started there should therefore concern a current computer model from Apple.
Your thread was a request for help, therefore it belongs in Genius Bar. I moved it to the lobby rather than Apple Hardware because you want help with a third-party hardware product. I could have put it in the third-party section but hardly anyone goes in there. To be honest I think Genius Bar has been too-finely sub-divided but it wasn't me that made that decision.
Since there are no rules set in stone, it's up to the discretion of moderators whether threads should be moved, and if so, where to. I hope that you understand now why yours was moved.
