Re: Lubuntu - One Stop Thread


A. J.,

The one stop Lubuntu thread looks great!  I love what you've done with the
first three posts and can tell you have put a lot of work in to it.  I did
have one suggestion that I think will make it even more useful.  I posted
it to the thread.  You can read it here:

I took ownership of a forum
couple of years ago and it became unmanageable within a month.  There
were so many different discussions going on at once it was hard to keep up
with them.  I wanted to keep adding the most useful items to the beginning
of the thread, but couldn't because there was so much going on.  To make
matters worse,  people would often think they had a problem solved and I
would dig through multiple posts trying to add the solution to the top of
the thread only to find out it didn't work after all.  Now the thread is
over 4200 posts long and contains a wealth of useful information but it's
nearly impossible to find it.  Doing a simple search on something like
"battery life" returns 240 of posts with most of them being useless.   It
would have been much better if I had been able to post a like to a thread
that held that discussion on its own.  People would come to the thread late
in the game with issues that had already been solved, but it was nearly
impossible to find the answers in the thread and the people who could
answer them had moved on to the next latest and greatest laptop and were no
longer active participants in that thread.

I hope this helps.
