Knowledge Bases

Post by spokey » Tue 04 Aug, 2009 20:05

As of now, people will not be able to post in the knowledge bases any more.

If you have an article that you want to submit for a knowledge base or if you think a particular thread is a candidate for moving into the knowledge base, then let a moderator know. We will discuss it and do the necessary.
Ciao,

What is the procedure for updating our own knowledgebase threads, Spokey?

Why not just give the section a really obvious name asking people not to ask questions, surely people will read it and understand not to ask questions and then not ask a question :D

Whilst I think I understand why this has been done, I would be concerned that it will increase the risk of useful information not going into the Knowledgebase as the OP can't post it there and it'll then get 'lost' in the masses of day to day posts.

Spokey, I assume that the mods will agree which posts justify publication in the knowledgebase and move them across.

Not sure how people can then comment on them but assume they will just link to the thread and comment? (or maybe move after they have stopped being a "current thread"?)

It would be a shame to loose this part of the forum altogether.

If you want a thread in the knowledgebase, ask a moderator to put it there.

If you want to comment on a KB thread, then link to it and discuss it in the relevant general forum. If the comments are useful, we will fold them back into the KB upon request.
