new forum suggestion


Actually this might not be its own forum, but might go under one of the many others. Actually, I think its too much of a tangent to be put into much of anything else, but you decide. This wouldn't be a forum in which people actually post, rather their threads would be moved here when appropriate.

Some systems administrators have this teddy bear they put in the corner of their office on a chair. When a coworker comes in with a computer problem they tell them to go talk to the bear first. So they go over there, talk out loud to the bear, explaining the problem, as if the bear were the systems administrator. This will often help people figure out their own problem, once they actually start thinking of it.
Many of you have seen the countless posts of people solving their own problems. Maybe its just a silly suggestion but I think it would be fun to move posts here. If I ever got bored I could come here and look hehe.

so when someone answers their own question in, let's say, the slackware forum, the thread gets moved to another forum? what about people searching the slackware forum for an answer that's been moved to this new forum you're proposing?

btw, it's a funny idea though.

I'm against this with many reasons and my top reason would be, the work involved with mods moving these threads to this so called forum. We do mod and we try out best to catch most threads, etc but the involvement this would take and determining if a thread should be moved is out of reach.
