Hi Richard, I would assume that the suggestion box is pointed at you, for others to comment.
Giovanni made a suggestion about a cheat sheet, and got some negative comment - i.e. no support. I would think that most of the people that look at this forum are near total or total incompetents like me, and would like to learn from what one supposes, are seniors, you know, people that know more and are capable and willing to share knowledge and experience (why else are they here?), to the extent where not only is a specific question answered, but answered well, in such a way that others with similar problems may find their way, in the dark, so to speak. True support is not often given on this site, and that is really a shame. There are some that do give good and proper answers, but mostly it is only half an answer - not really up to expectations. Giovanni's suggestion was a good suggestion! So why do the experienced fellows not do something about it - they do not want to supply support, is the apparent answer!
I myself, am desperately in need of such a workflow sheet, and everybody, even the long-time experienced guys will find advantage in such a sheet.
How about showing some statistics regarding the visitors that do visit this site. If some visits are short, or if some visitors seem to be fly-by-night visitors, statistics should be able to tell why. If support was of a certain standard, I am sure the visitor numbers would reflect that. You cannot just say that you, Richard, give this community what it wants, what actually should be is that this community gets what it needs - expert advice and leadership, that should build a memory of answers that would give satisfaction to anybody willing to do the necessary research.
If such a workflow sheet was available, many more Joomla sites would see the light, is that not logical?
The next thing that I would like to address, is the points system.
It just does not work!
I have supposedly reached the status of Expert Member(hah!)- this hopelessly incorrect! I assume that some of the other members' designations are equally incorrect. If you look at some of the answers that appear here in this forum, you cannot but agree, bearing in mind that one is always expected to give full details when asking a question, the completeness of answers are sometimes so wanting, blunt, uninformative and/or misleading, and not to the point, that it would have been better if it had not been answered. Most probably the reactions to my post, if there will be any, will demonstrate what I am trying to say.
I am a Junior Member! The seniority of a member should be measured by the quality of the answers and support that he actually gives!
Hacking has lately been discussed quite often - does this subject not merit a category classification of its own?
