    I am a newbie. Been trying different distos for around 6 months now, Suse 9, Xandros and now Fedora. This forum has been very helpful and I appreciate people taking their time to comment on the various questions that different ones have. Very informative and responsive keep up the good work! tks

    The only thing that i could make FedoraForum better is an expanded articles section. We need someplace that has really basic things in it. Like a article about basic set up and common problems with networks, printers, etc. Granted, we are all doing this in our spare time and not getting paid for it, but if we could make something like that and have a pretty large article database, it would make it that much better. Maybe we could get some of teh guys over at fedoranews to write us some really nice and "userfriendly" step by step kind of articles for new people. Just an idea. my $.02

    That might be the purpose of FedoraNews.org, which has very good step-by-step articles, and nice documentations about common problems.

    the whole purpose of FEdoraForum is to provide help though. Seems to me that if we could consolidate all the help info in one place it would help a lot.

    I've had some great experiences with this forum. It's helped out a lot. In fact, any time I'm just sittin' in front of the computer when I finish with checkin' mail and such, I'll look through the forum and see if there are any problems I can help with. Granted, being a noob myself, there aren't many things I can help with at the moment... but I'm confident that I'll be able to help more people as time go by.

    Thanks for the forum everyone! :-)

    what I think you miss

    the site is excelent, i've found some useful answer to my problems and i've tried to answer to others one, but I thik you may improve adding:
    1) a search engine to find easily thread/problem/keywords.
    2) a catalog of problem/resolution, a sort of Knowledge Base.

    my 2 cents

    Thats what the "Resolved" bit is in the support forums. But its a system which only works when thread starters decide whether or not they're problem has been resolved.

    search engine

    well... sorry i didn't see it at all
    maybe try to put a text field on the blank-unused space on the top of the site as other sites usually do.

    I think you need to fix the "How To" section. People are posting questions in there and, IMHO, that forum should only be for "HOWTO" guides, like "How To Use Apt" or something.

    Maybe you should not allow any posts in there other than from moderators. Or, perhaps move all the non-howto posts into their proper forums (like Networking, Software etc.) and post a sticky at the top that says "This Forum Is Not For Asking Questions" or something. And then keep tabs on it and move questions that get posted in there.

    I've moderated other Linux boards and have had this same problem.

    Other than that, this is a great forum that is really growing quickly. Good mods, nice layout, good user options, etc. Keep up the great work!

    P.S. Is there a way to preview posts before submitting? I don't see that function.
