Well honestly while Im still a newer member. I plan on sticking around here. Like Ive said before this is the most freindly and helpful website I have ever seen. Honestly.
No system Bashing, no haters, just people actually helping others when their is no one forcing them or telling them F-Off N00b..
As for people leaving that's fine, those who stay are dedicated to helping what the forum has setup as guidelines, and their will be plenty of ways for us all to learn from each-other.
I recommend two things to keep the site going.
#1. Force on-topic discussions. People seem to fork the conversation in a thread for example if the topic is a release RTM thread (cough) (cough) somehow the discussion becomes about gay lovers, or finicial issues. Instead of staying on topic. 10,000 posts to read through when half are way off topic is a bit crappy to deal with.
#2. Start a forum for clinics. How-To's pick a topic per week or day start with some basic's of WIndows 7 since all of us are not on the same technical level and say today we discuss ways to do X.. Demonstrate it, show the programs you use, and let others add to it or discuss alternative ways to do it. Example how to properly setup an SSH connection on windows 7 to allow your to browse the internet from work etc...
Otherwise im 100% happy here and I visit here more than my own website right now
thats saying alot
