Speaking of which, someone should be forced to clean up the comments in the Software Manager from all the blasted "Quite nice" comments in the Software manager. Why? Because there is no blasted chance any one person could have thoroughly tested all those hundreds, if not thousands of software and come to the conclusion that 4 stars would be an appropriate verdict for all of them.
All my points come from real work. Can that dude say the same? I doubt it! Fooey! >P
I am no a big fan of user name restrictions. I hate over censership.
So true, a little bit of chaos is all well and good. Thats how good forums and online communities like this one stay strong. Though yes sometimes you need to redress the need for order and perhaps do some spring cleaning of the areas here.
I have created guidelines modified for community here
General Rules and Guidelines for Community Ideas and Tutorials:
Please do let me know if I missed anything or anything needs to be corrected.
Please do let me know if I have missed anything.
Thank you all
sorry @blueXrider for the mistake. I mixed up 2 issues.
i was referring to this bug:
Title: Web site column width is renders incorrectly
Regarding the modification of rules. I appreciate your idea. I was thinking of creating tutorial (unofficial). This will help mods, as a rough sketch will be ready for them.
I remember that, a few days back, I had communicated with @oscar799. They are working on Husses's 'Before you post, read this'
Don't know exactly what you mean?
You, as a Moderator, have to add comments to explain the reason why did you mark this idea as Considered.
I think Moderators have to add comments to explain the reason why did they change the Status without regard to the idea be marked as Rejected or be marked as Considered.
First, thanks for the support @sunewbie but the Idea isn't mine, exactly.
Second, the "rules" came from the forums and yes they should be adapted to the community.
Third, I agree with you about the modifications. That's why I stated they should be adapted to the community.
~~~~~ I cannot control the overflow from here on out, the text is defaulted. If there is a problem with the format, you can't read it then reset your browser and if that doesn't work report it to https://bugs.launchpad.net/community.linuxmint.com
i agree. I still have the problem of text overflow and i cannot see the no of points scored.
This is idea is good and i am promoting it.
I think this post (idea) needs to be modified for community with reference to tutorials, ideas and hardware.
1. Welcome to the Mint forum! - change to welcome to Mint Community!
2. Please add "Solved" to the subject line. There is no marking [solved] in idea or any module in community.
3. Just bump your post.: how to do it. I also do not know how to do it in forums - I may be dumb
4. Supply facts about your problem - things like which hardware, which version of Mint and software that are involved, error messages (as exactly as possible) and more. This may give you a real answer directly instead of a request for facts.
And please tell us if you run Mint with the help of mint4win
*please think about changing it too
5. Please consider which forum you post in - it matters. The right forum increases your chances of a speedy answer.
think over this issue
What do you think ???
Am I missing something?
If everyone follow these rules, we will get a very organised community. I think this article should be uploaded at LinuxMint's home page.
Great work @blueXrider.
With some modification, these rules should be used.
I also agree with this idea, of course!
By the way, isn't there any effective way to research the same or similar ideas?
I think it would be better the Ideas Module would also have an option to add Tags like the Tutorials Module.
What would help with the search issue would be the default being to search all statuses. It's a pain to search them all individually so people wont bother. I'm sure that's been posted as an idea... Ah yes; forwarded for consideration.
Totally agree with this idea.
