Problem Solving LQ-Happy Birthday

I joined LQ recently 2 weeks ago. Before that I was only visiting LQ for finding out solutions for problems that I came accross with..
It helped me alot. But for some problems I was not getting the solution anywhere in the net.Then I thought to create an account in LQ and decided to post the problem. Surprisingly I got solution to my problem...

Thank you LQ...
Again I wish Happy Birthday......

Happy Birthday, Some Ideas

First Happy Birthday and thank you for such a great online resource.

My suggestions for improvement are somewhat selfish and some echo what has been posted already:

1. Update the guidelines for posting so they appear at the top level with all the forums listed/linked. The guidelines (and follow on emails) also would benefit from a small section encouraging people to thank people who help them and tell them how. I do this automatically but it never hurts to remind me.

The guidelines also should link to a new page that lists the sort of technical information that might be of use (e.g. console output) to include in the original post. That might eliminate some initial back and forth. Finally, the guidelines and follow up emails should encourage people to post their solution, if they had one, to benefit the community. Again, I do this automatically but it helps to be reminded.

2. I found LQ through the Google while looking for a solution to an odd Ubuntu problem while ripping out Bacula. But my larger problem is to learn how to go through my log files, and possibly set up new ones, to figure out what makes my HH server crash every so often. In the tutorials and articles section, however, I did not see any link to servers. I thought Bacula was the problem. It's not. So now I need to go back to the well. I've been looking in vain for books that tell how to debug crashes with no luck.

Possibly I am too stupid to know enough to find this information. And I see LQ has a framework for this type of content. But maybe it should be expanded, maybe it should break out of the forum format for that content. Basically I'd like more dumb newbie-oriented content, stuff about the first few rungs on the ladder. And it doesn't have to be original. It could be links to great articles elsewhere on the internets.

Thanks again for providing such a great resource and to everyone who participates here.

Happy Birthday LQ!
I have not posted much on LQ but got alot of help from this forum. I wish that it will grow more and will emerge as an open minded open source community forum.

what should we be doing differently.

The question was asked:

What new features or sections would you like to see? What should we be doing differently? Let us know your thoughts, we really are listening.

There are millions of users who should be using a distribution of Linux but aren't. The most important question is why arent they using Linux?

Have you ever watched somebody try to install a distribution of Linux for the FIRST time. If so, then you will be incredibly shocked at what you see.

Try it sometime. Ask your girlfriend, friend, wife, sister, younger brother, mom, etc... to install Ubuntu (the most user friendly version). Make sure this is somebody who never used Linux before.

After watching their experience, you will understand what needs to be done.

@ mpoplawski

Will you quit trolling this thread, I think you are off topic. If you want to argue open a new thread in the general sections. This thread is about LQ being online for 9 years, not about whether people are able to install Linux, and your argument that Linux sucks. If they aren't able, tell them to come to LQ and post in newbie section ... then they'll get the help they need.

Too many posts already,so I don't know if someody already suggested what I have in mind and that is; would it be OK ( possible ) if original poster could change the title of his own thread ( I mean the thread he started ).
Reasons for this could be various,from grammar to simply the fact that OP could make a better title for his/her thread which naturally will better explain the problem or whatever the thread is reffering to.
Of course,moderators could/should approve or not any such change.

alan_ri, The OP can change the thread title for a full hour after the thread is posted.

Gotta say thank you to Jeremy for the work put into creating/maintaining this forum for the community.

I've played with Linux on and off for a few years now, I've never really got to the point where its became my primary OS. But for the past 6 years when I have used Linux, LQ and its members have been a massively helpful resource. My most satisfying Linux moment was using LQ, Links, and several consoles on Slackware 8.1 or 9.0 to get xinerama working after I killed my X config trying to set it up. Without this community I'd have been diving for the disk to reinstall and start over.

So thank you again, Jeremey, Mods, and Members

Thank you Jeremy for all your efforts, without this site Linux is not the same, to me this my first stop for anything Linux non-tech and technical related. This site has helped me understand the concept better and helped me to learn to think different. I may have not made the best start when I first became a member, I was never on any forum before and I came out of the mad world of Windows. Linux made me enjoy computing again, something that I found harder and harder to do in a Windows environment back then. If it wasn't for this site and its loyal members I would not have made it this far (yet a long road lies ahead, I am well aware of that) and I think there are quite a few out there who feel the same way and would still be M$Slaves otherwise.

Trying to do my part here I thank you again, ready for the next nine!
