Happy Birthday LQ!

This board has helped me over the years solve many problems, and had helped me learn a lot.

For a suggestion, if a thread is opened, answered, but not marked solved, what about sending the originator a friendly e-mail, after seven days or so, and asking for an update? I would also suggest to do this only once per thread, I don't want to bug a poster, and turn them off posting.

Ask the originator to mark the thread as Solved, Found a work around, Partially solved? and ask for if the originator is still looking for a solution?

I have read many threads that simply 'dead end' no solution posted, it appears the thread is ongoing? When you look at the date, the thread is old.

I agree with post #31 from camorri, of giving some sort of regular reminder to original posters and give them choices to qualify the thread.

You are the reference! Congrats on your 9 years of helping me and countless others.

Smile Happy Birthday

From a grateful perennial NOOB. I have asked some of the dumbest questions. I have yet to see my first RTFM. I recommend your site every chance I get.

Awesome Web service...

I love working in Linux... it doesn't get in the way of what I want to do on the computer or the web. The time I invest in learning more about Linux is not wasted on some proprietary system that might be trashed in the next iteration of the OS.

Thank you, LinuxQuestions.org! Happy 9th Birthday!
