We have to tighten the forum rules a bit more. Lately people start new threads though there are other threads covering the same topic. There are often even solutions for a specific problem already somewhere else!
- Search! The forum has a build in search at the headermenu: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?action=search Use it, it's easy! It's similiar to google!
- If you decide to open a new thread choose the correct board! For people seeking knowledge on a specific problem it's not easy to find it if it's hiding in the wrong board (unless you follow the above rule! Search!). Keep the forums clean!
- If you don't get an answer within 5 minutes don't be demanding ("anyone?")! If you don't get one there is possibly a reason (noone ever had the problem / no time to answer / no clue / language barrier / something more important to do / ... ).
We don't mean to be arrogant. We just want the forum to be usable and not grow wild. We'll start deleting new threads covering already touched topics from now on. We encourage all boardadmins to do so. If your thread was dropped without notice it's because you broke one of the above rules.
We hope you understand why we have to act like this. It's not to annoy users but to actually help those that want to use the boards as a source of wisdom.
