This has been an excellent site for a LONG time - and additional capabilities have been added over the years - forums, blogs, wiki entries.

I remember participating in a promotion MANY years ago and receiving an Linux Questions T shirt; it was so long ago that I wore it out, but remember the time with fondness.

The Android Forum has proven to be useful a couple of times as I was doing research, so adding modern technology to the overall site has also been useful to me.

Thanks for the memories, the useful forums, articles, and community!

Happy 17th.
I don't post much here or anywhere but I'm always able to get the help I need from this site when I need it.
I've been using the site for over a decade, if I remember right.
Thanks and keep it up.

Remember that scene in " Interview with a Vampire " With Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. v
" I need you so I can stay current with this century. "


This forum does that for me. Without anybody dying over it.
Happy 17th.

Don't Touch That Dial!

Jeremy, This site is great. Congrats. I would advocate not altering anything. Especially don't change the interface. Everybody who does seems to make their site more unusable than otherwise.

You might want to add a feature where we can stick virtual pins into images of the Systemd team and the person(s) who decided to restrict our freedom by not allowing Dolphin to be run as root. :-)

But you can do that (in tumbleweed): Click on the button of the start menu, chose system and, lo and behold, in the submenu you'll find Dolphin (administrator mode). And so, all is well ... .

Happy 17th, and thanks. LQ is on of my startup pages, because it's my goto for troubleshooting anything linux. A decade ago, I switched from OS X to linux, and I would have had to wait on hold for hours, and pay hundreds for enterprise applecare support--but here at LQ, I have found 90% of my answers just by searching, and not having to post; and the other 10% of the time, when I've had to post, response time was still quicker than waiting on hold, and telling my story to three different tiers of tech support... So thanks again. No need to change a thing (although I like that you added mobile version); but everything works and we're all already used to the layout of the site... why fix it if...

Thanks again. You've done so well with LQ, could you please campaign for POTUS? You'd have my vote!

This rings alarms for me!

I am staunchly old-school. So many sites/forums have changed to a "new and improved" version where the end result has been functionality lost for the users...

This is a site which works extremely well. PLEASE do not try to tart it up and make it "attractive" to 5-year olds.

I am minded of the Taunton Woodworking forums. They were great and probably the biggest and most active woodworking site on the web.. Now visiting them is like wandering through a deserted city. Think post-apocalypse.

Keep up the good work!

I wish a pop-up appeared if there are new IMs. I guess the best thing about the forums is that I don't have to think about anything but the person I'm helping, and the help I'm offering. The forum itself seems to take care of itself. So, thanks Jeremy, for doing the work to make it transparent to the rest of us.

There's an option for this: Edit Options -> Messaging & Notification -> Private Messaging -> "Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up"

please please keep the use interface as well as the look and feel
the same dude you got this part right

changing this forum into something like the android sub form please
don't do it please don't
the android forum makes my eyes hurt please don't make that the model for any upgrade

it would be like being kicked out of my house

worse than that

it would be like going from KDE 3.5 to KDE 4.0
