Is it possible when a person who is posting, and does a paste (from a terminal or somewhere else), automatically wrap that in [code] tags? I understand the poster may not be always pasting from a terminal, so there will be many times when this does not apply...
I am not a web developer, so not sure if this is possible?
You must be doing something right Jeremy.

I like the site the way it is, and it functions well. It supports what we need. Some of the graphics are slightly dated, but otherwise, I think it's great! Please keep up the great work.

Hi and congratulations. Not long to go to 20 :-))
I am rather an observer than a contributor. My reservations stem from a fear that my answers are not the best when others who are far more capable than I should rather be given the opportunity to reply. Your talk of Version 2.0 scares me to some extent because I do believe that your current layout is VERY functional and has been of great use to me. I fear that two things will happen when you prettify the next version a) You will find more opportunities to insert advertising and b) The compactness of the present code will be lost to a WordPres like marketing approach which means that evey answer will become 2 or 5 pages longer.

Background: I do use LQ pretty frequently but it is now overwumped by everyody who thinks that they are the technical EXPERT and use their knowledge to get WEBSITE-HITS rather than contribute practical answers to problems. Frequently the answers are not even correct or apply to incorrect versions. Mainly because software now seems to be out of date in weeks. Especially if one takes into account the frequency with which everyone issues upates to their software nowadays. Particularly all Phone Apps, Windows (Microsoft), Chrome and Oracle. Cannot speak for Apple. Cannot afford Apple.

Suggestion: In addition to your current rating and sorting process for answers I believe that two new qualifications will go a long way to sifting the wheat from the chaff. a) Much more emphasis on the dates for solutions and VERSION NUMBERS (listed latest available first) and b) Solutions should be qualified as 1) Tested 2)Referenced to other TESTED 3) Sure Knowledge and 4) Opinion / Suggestion. Some solutions do fall into the 3rd qualification and are really just pontifications. Not a lot of value. Lastly solutions that are inappropriate our out-of-date should be removable or FLAGGED as such.
Best regards, ianm

All I have to say is thank you, Jeremy, for the friendliest Linux place on the inner webs.

Many thanks Jeremy and congratulations on the anniversary. I've not been a member long, I was pointed in this direction by a friend and former colleague, when I resurrected my interest in Linux in my retirement. I'd dabbled back in SuSE 7 days but geve up due to lack of time. So as a new(ish)comer to modern Linux, I had a shedload of questions. When I've not been able to solve an issue myself, I've come here and have yet to be disappointed, either a solution or a pointer in the right direction in every case, so far.

What would I ask to be changed? Well, obviously, nothing! I do sometimes, probably lack of familiarity, have a little difficulty finding the posts related to my search. But that's me, not LQ.

Just keep doing what you do, Jeremy and I'll be one happy bunny!

Nineteen Years of success kind of answers it's self. Years ago (less than 19) I discovered LQ to have credible answers - ones that helped solved issues I struggled with.

So I presume LQ created an environment for quality people to gather to share information to help others... generally without so much condescending comments about choices. (Although some is unavoidable due to absurd misunderstandings)

When I couldn't find an answer anywhere else, after digging through documentation and distributions forums and wikis - of course LQ users could answer what specifically .d directories were about, quickly!

But there isn't any such thing? Are you sure you are talking about LQ?
