it appears someone has already spiked the punch at this birthday bash and we have forgotten, it is a birthday party and not the time or place to bash...

in keeping with my belief of credit where credit is is to you, post #21, you know who you are
if only it had been post #22 the rhythm of the rhyme would have flowed through
Wayne, i credit you with stealing...borrowing...clarifying the thought i was too lazy to express at the time of my previous post
dang...i want to 'strike through' stealing...borrowing but cannot quickly figure it out at the moment...did i mention i am lazy today...perhaps someone can help me with that
it brings to mind a star trek episode...voyager? next generation? aha...i believe it was jordie? who was .hijacked. by a group of people who claimed...we are dumb you are smart can you help us

anyways the thread of my idea is unraveling which is the point of post 21, threads need to be sewn together once we have discovered the pattern.blueprint.code of what we wish to make
i am guilty of not tying up my own loose threads that i have originated.tugged at

i am dumb you are smart...can you help me sew together all the threads that lead to the solution to my problem... sew that others may benefit from our collective wisdom of a solution without having to rehash the heavy lifting...

we all have the seed of knowledge but in order to claim credit for the fruit of that seed...we must plant it and care for it until it bears fruit
i only feel the need to claim credit because i need others to share their knowledge with me so i may thrive
i wish to share my knowledge with others but i fear i do not contribute my fair share and feel guilty if i cannot point out my own .claim to credit. for a fair exchange

some comments at this party might be non.appropriate topic perhaps

lets remember the spirit and purpose of jeremy's 18 year old baby and cut out the code of comments that put a bug in our programing

criticism or critique is useful to simplify our programing
but here and now, on this particular thread...its time to PARTY and celebrate LQ
oops...i have forgotten why jeremy invited us all and further participation...politely..

now where is that punch bowl...

Hi all,

and as a rather new, if not brand new, ok, somewhat new member/user of this forum I've received an email from well, here, to participate in this survey. To give some feedback. Well, as I've said, I'm fairly new, so I don't have that much impressions about the forum or the likes of the community that resides here. So I'm in a situation where I'm an outsider which had no good or bad experiences here. So, now now that it's clear where I'm coming from and where I stand, I'll try to answer the questions. But these are just my thoughts, I'm just trying to return the favor.

Well this place is a knowledge base for anything related to Linux and far beyond, If you know what and where to look for. That would be the doing well part. How can you improve here? Have you though about redesigning the forum, giving it a fresh look and a different, more readable ux, for easier navigation. To be more precise, have you thought about braking the forum into lets say 3 parts, first one would be for beginners with most common issues listed there (installing, gaming, etc), the second part would be for advanced users but for general purpose (more of a place where they can hang out, chat, collaborate on some side projects, or just be goofy) and the third part would be also for advanced users but with specific purpose (networking, security, cloud, etc). This way forum would look more friendlier to newcomers and beginners (it's hard to ask a "stupid" question when the people around you talk in "machine code"), and your long term and/or seasoned users would be "protected" from seeing the basic boring stuff all over again when they are not in the mood for that. But of course, every user could still jump from "site to site". The main idea is to simplify the navigation for new users and beginners, and for the rest of course, and to give those who want it a place where they can share they ideas, works, and have a feeling that they still can grow here and be of help to others, when needed. Basically, different type of users have different needs. And it's all about meeting their needs. For example, although, I'm a newbie to Linux, I would still like to be aware that I can reach to advanced users and topics when I fell like it, want it, or need it. But I would also like to find a solution to my problem without being afraid that I'll step on someones toes with my ignorance and of course, find the solution in three clicks. So that's why I think braking up the forum in some similar way might actually be a better way of doing things. I don't think I have anything else to say regarding this survey(feedback, whatever) and from what point I'm looking at it. I don't know how much I'm on track here either, but that's not the point nor on me to decide, I just tried to give back something to those who give out to others. Oh, and of course...

Happy birthday! All the best! So, where's the party? (Don't worry, I wont come... )

I'm already here! (My last name is Punch).In school, report cards were issued with the last name printed first. No matter how good my grades were, I always went home with bruises.

Being by far much more a «reader» than a «writer» I have to thank the whole community for the advice I grabbed here and there and helped me so much during my endless quest for taming an Arch Linux system which, by the ways always meet all my expectations (as soon as I discover how to explain what I wish to it).
So happy birthday LQ and thanks again to all the contributors.
From Toulouse, France, with my best thoughts
