Lightbulb LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come for help : Huh?


Good topic, but, I don't totally agree with:
Code:
LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come for help
Okay, they come for help but, does anyone come "to help"?
I would suggest:
Code:
LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come for help and to help.
Also, I saw the "Similar Threads", It has the "to", not the "for", so, this time... I include "for" and "to".

Just an idea.

Isn't that implicitly given? Why should anyone come to a place searching for help when there is no one coming to help them?

Allow me to pick a nit......Users mostly arrive here looking for help. To be sure, some stay on and provide help, but I think the vast majority of new arrivals are trying to figure something out.

therefor, the statement is correct as is.....

The issue of come to help and come for help is a good question.

If everyone only came here for help and no one came here to help, then no one would ever get their question solved.


I guess linux admins could come here for help too.

Here's a geeky, hacker-style way:
Code:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(void)
{
    srand(time(NULL));
    int randval;
    randval = rand() % 2 + 1;
    if (randval == 1)
    {
        printf("LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come for help.\n");
    }
    else if (randval == 2)
    {
        printf("LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come to help.\n");
    }
    return 0;
}
It will never get geekier than this! xD

I love both of these.

Alternatively, the slogan could be changed to "LinuxQuestions.org - where Linux users come for a variety of reasons."

True, Each person knows something the others don't know. Sometimes newbies know something important that the seniors don't know.
