Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My community-supporter idea should have mentioned tutorials, whitepapers and informative blogs.
But still, if we did not share ideas, where would we be?
On these ones, I agree with you, and I believe it can be very easy to integrate their maths into the original maths since they are also 'posts'. What I wouldn't want to come into the equation is the contribution, since this is purely a financial attribute.
@rob124: I think it's possible to overthink this and perhaps place more importance on so-called "titles" than necessary. IMO, the value of each post stands for itself. I place posts into one of two categories: 1) worthwhile/helpful/thought provoking; and 2) noise.
I don't recall ever looking at someone's "title" (i.e. post count) and thinking better or worse of him. Actually after spending some time on the forums, you begin to associate user names - not titles - with consistently good or crummy advice.
Curtrently a confused Microsoft Windows Admin, starting on Linux acn quickly attain 'Guru' because they will be 'asking' after evry shell command
Maybe a SysAdmin, but not a NetAdmin. The Sysadmins are also the ones that bring me my coffee, or I block them from the net. They never have figured out that I put that "disable local firewall" policy inside of the DC attached to the netadmin group.
I have searched and was ASTONISHED to realise there are GAZILLIONS of threads and posts about TITLES. One way or the other, PPLE will talk about it, and they will CONTINUE to debate about it. My system was going to give them something more interesting, FUN, thought provoking, smart, intelligent, motivating and NOT SO Common way of looking at it.
@rob124: Please keep the discussion to one thread, reanimating long dead threads won't help and is annoying to be honest.
If you do want to put some attention on them put the related links in this thread.
@rob124: Frankly, I also find it a bit odd that every one of your posts thus far has been complaining/arguing for a better "title" system. Are you here to get help with your Linux questions or what?
Here where? This is 'LQ Suggestions & Feedback' and I am 'suggesting' you cant expect me to be asking questions in this forum.
I am particularly interested in this forum, unless if YOU (maybe you are a moderator) want to place a rule to says "those who do not post elsewhere, shld not post in 'LQ suggestions'"
All the same, these suggestions are mearnt to BETTER LQ experience, not destroy it, and i doubt very much YOUR professionalism, if you can not stomach other users suggestions and opinions.
FYI, I am not HERE to get help with my Linux questions, IF i wanted that help I would be in 'Linux-server' or 'Linux-networking' I thot you knew all this.
Also I am much smarter that I dont repeat questions that have been saked and answered somewhere, If came here with loads of questions but found answers without REPEATING the questions just to bump up my posts.
I have looked at how LQ ranks its users. I was astonished to notice that
Likewise I am astonished to notice that since you became a member of LQ you have contributed nothing to solving your own or other peoples problems but have been concentrating solely on "status" and similar issues. Not that you're not allowed to use LQ that way, but it I kind of makes me wonder what's your true agenda?..
My agenga is to be a pioneer of a LQ ranking system, when you guys finally embrace my idea, I will take pride in it.
Like I said before, It doesnt mean I dont have questions, BUT whats the point in repeating questions when I have found them answered somewhere else within the forum??? I think you do bad by suggesting that members should just post and post and post questions or answers without checking first whether the issue is dealt with somewhere. I spend time here just searching for answers, RATHER than reposting similar and stupid questions. Personally I find that as a smarter way of doing things here. I will only post a question if its something new, NOT answered anywhere else here.
