Just checked Yahoo.com for other Linux Help/Newbie sites out of curiosity. Loads listed, most do not exist. In comparison to those that I could get onto, this site rocks! Easy to navigate. Not too cluttered with shit-loads of info on one screen. Nice one.

Not one to be slanderous (or is that libelous?), but has anyone noticed that Mandrake Expert website is remarkably difficult? I used to be a member, that is until they 'updated' their website. I can now not login! If I try to become a new member, it always throws be back to the intro page! Superb page, keep it up guys!

Just like to point out that I think there is only one person who actually runs and organizes the site, and that is 'root' or jeremy (correct me if I am wrong!). So most of the praise (if not ALL) should be going to him.

You are right though, this site is much better than most I have looked at, in everything (speed, content, look, people etc...).

Keep up the good work, it really is appreciated.

I have gone to other sites, most are either to difficult to post and reply or even sign up.

This site rocks cause of its sleek design and simplicity. Its easy to read and post to and from.

Web pages that take to long to load or that have too much to them are a turn away.

I completely agree with you, CragStar. All of my praise for the site itself goes to Jeremy. And praise must be given to all that contribute. My previous comment about 'Superb page, keep it up guys' was sarcasm directed towards MandrakeExpert. I can't find anything here that could be faulted. It's easy to use, quick to navigate, etc. Basically, all that a help page should be. But seriously:
Superb page, keep it up Jeremy!

100% agree, I am recommending this site to all of my LUG friends. It seems to be really well managed and tidy. The people are friendly and I haven't seen any flame wars so far. This is a nice place! Everyone responsible, keep up the excellent work!

Thumbs up Best site for real help!

I have been to other sites also, and saw many posts that had never been replied to! Everything I have posted here has gotten a quick reply, and because of that, I am still trying Linux! I'm just a regular person, a middle school math teacher not a programmer or anything! But here I am up and running the hottest os going! All thanks to the people here, who are willing to answer even the silliest questions, without being flamed for not checking elsewhere. I've spent hours on each problem before posting, so I'm thankful no one yelled at ME! Maybe someday I'll be able to answer other people's questions, and give the good work back...

Jeremy, I just had to chime in and agree that this site rocks. I've looked at several other sites, but have never bothered to join any of them.

I've been visiting this site for a few months and recently joined. Partially due to the many helpful contributors, I have finally become comfortable enough with Linux that I can add a helpful suggestion of my own here and there.

To follow up on DrDebian's comments, of my favorite things about this site is that people seem to be genuinely friendly and helpful here. This is not a site that people simply go to for their daily ego trip. My thanks to all for that.

Thanks again Jeremy, and keep up the good work!

Just wanted to put in my $.02....I agree, this is one of the best on-line Linux communities I've come across. Being new to Linux some of the boards can be rather intimidating and elitist in their attitudes towards newbies, but this one is both helpful and friendly. I like it here!

Thumbs up

This is definately a great site for information on Linux. I have been using Linux for a short time, and frequenting this site for about a week. I really enjoy the ease of use of this site, as well as the many helpful users. Thank you.

Little suggestion.

I have a little here. Why don't the "New thread" button appear on the top of each section but inside the thread instead? I was looking for the button when I just joined this forum, and suprisingly I found it INSIDE the thread, I think it make more sense to put it in the top page of every section (e.g security, general...).

Just my 2 cents of word.

Hi guys,
I am from China. I searched in google.com with the keywords "linux forum" and got thounds of URLs but finally I am here. I think this is a great site for Linux newbies and fans. But I'd like to give some suggestions. (1). It seems that there are too small amount of people registered. Are u willing to make this site more popular? Just make more people know it and make them believe that it is their best choice. (2). Can one send a private message to others directly in this forum rather than by sending an email? (3). I think there are too few categories in the forum list. For example, if I interested in database, where should I post a thread about it? Or how can I serach topics of database more easily?
There is also a great Linux forum in China:http://www.linuxforum.net/. I am here for tow purpose: one is to know Linux fans out of China and try to make friends with them. The other is that if I cant get the answer of my question in China I hope I can find it here. Any way, I like this site.
