    But then its the responsibility of the experienced members of the forum, to make sure those posts can answered.
    Well, I won't claim to be one of those "experienced members of the forum", but I do realise the negative impression some people get when their post goes unanswered for any length of time.
    I offer my help where I can, which is all I can do; if I can't answer something, hopefully someone else can...If they can't, I usually like to reply with something that may (or may not) be helpful. At least to make people feel they're not being ignored.

    But of course, this is voluntary help done because I and others enjoy helping and imparting advice/knowledge where possible. This does not mean I and others can be there to address every post that makes it to the boards. More members, and preferably more with experience is all that we can strive for to reach optimum collaboration levels....

    Well, there's my 2.5 cents.

    it would be nice if there were more people who knew more about fedora than just the same few that keep responding. I keep seeing Ug, mhelios, foolish, tux and the gang answering everybody's questions. It shouldnt be up to the same few people to answer everybodys question. I try to answer when i can, but im still pretty new to fedora. It shouldnt be up to the same few. I mean, obviously you guys like doing this or you wouldnt be admins and responding to everybody all the time, but it shouldnt be youre responsibility. If we could entice a greater number of advanced users, it would probably benefit everyone. I really love the forums though. It just shouldnt be the responsibility of a few fto help the masses if you get my drift.

    just my take on things, love it hate it, oh well.

    At the end of the day, more users will provide more help.

    And yes, I do spam this board a lot. 20% of all posts are mine

    i noticed, the top 25 posters are like u with 600, mhelios with 500, then tux has like 200, just a slight difference there. Its cool though, we get your imput, which is valuable, you arent the admin for nothing

    We try, but its amazing how far this forum has come on. In such a small time, we've really grown some and thats good.

    What we're trying to do is trying to retain people like you in the forum, to keep the feeling of community. Thats mainly the purpose of the General Discussion forum, which i'm contemplating developing a bit more.

    We're currently in the process of merging FedoraForum.org with the Artoo #Fedora FAQ forum.

    The user database and threads will all be ported over soon. Then we'll release some official announcements.

    The #Fedora artoo forum, will be merging into here. So this forum will be staying exactly where it is - but it'll expand somewhat.

    Which is fantastic news.

    It's "merrier". I don't know, another American abusing the English language!

    Anyway, I'm off to bed now - it's getting late (11:15 pm) and I've got to be up early (6:00 am).

    I agree 100%
