what to do about crossposts and repeated quest
I think your idea(s) about using those subdomains on dreamhost.com are great.

I've also been "irritated" about the sadly outdated "gateway" page at http://discussion.dreamhost.com/index.html also - it really does need an overhaul. It's kinda embarrassing to have that link to the defunct KBase still sitting there since the KBase was "retired" a couple of years ago. Wink

There are a lot of things that could be done to help provide more introductory info to forum users - just replacing that KBase link on entry with a link to the wiki, and maybe even a "Intro to the Forums" resource that lived there would be a big help (and *that* resource could be maintained by the community).

And yeah, Ive been taken to task a few times myself for not being "nice" enough to miserable spamtards ... someone occasionally throws that ""Last but not least: Be nice!" out whenever anyone objects to anyones behavior on the forums. I don't know that can be helped much ...

I think on the whole, this is a friendly and welcoming forum, and I don't see that it hurts to encourage new users to respect the way the community works here. I also realize that is just my opinion and I know the others feel differently about it.

Silence is (often) indeed "Golden"! Wink
