Quote from: sirius on April 10, 2007, 07:25:13 AMabout some rules for the moderators as well ? like deleting the wrong answers and useless posts, I own a support forum and I always delete the wrong answers to a problem . If you don't do it, when we do a search, we end up with 5 pages of useless stuff and if we post again to ask for the answer we are told to do a search... more it goes and more your forum will become useless , full of answers like : clear your browser's cache and cookies.. answers given by peoples who don't have a clue about what they are talking about.My moderators are there to delete the useless stuff so that when we do a search on my forum , we get an answer, not 5 pages of useless stuff. I've been using SMF for ages now, been a paying member at one time but got frustrated with the amount of useless threads on this support forum..don't get mad, there are no other ways to say this.another thing that I find quite strange, when a newbie ask for an answer to a problem and someone tell him to do some PHP editing and the newbie can barely install SMF, let alone some PHP scripts , I get a good laugh...how will he do this anyway.. why not post a small file so that he can replace the one in his installation... and explain what you did so that those who want to learn can do it. maybe that I am an administrator of a support forum for too long and I am asking too much , but blaming it all on the members is wrong.. it is the mods and admins who make for a great support forum.
