It would help a lot if there where stickies:|
- Common issues with solutions/work arounds/....
- TWRP and Rooting (the topic is already there).
- Firmware (where to find firmwares) and flashing instructions (topic is also there)
And active moderation. I think it doesn't have to be that "active", first a few days (or a week?) of pruning the first couple of pages of the posts) and giving out warnings/notifications ("Post issues here..." , "This has already been asked.." , ...)
Then moderate every # days? (or once a week).
Add a notification block above a post asking to use search first for example.
The bottom of each post doesn't seem to help at all, (Report your problem... , Thor bug... Tips: Forum community....), put it below or above the text input field where the user creates/edits/reply post.
Maybe dropdown listbox above the reply/edit post inputfield, that dropdown listbox would then contain:
- Issue / problems
- Firmware, flashing
- TWRP ROOT
Once an item is selected, and user presses the 'reply'-button, the user's post is automatically posted in the correct thread.
(or the user gets a notification that the current topic location is not the correct one).
A touchy subject and I mean no disrespect but some kind of "enforcement" of posting in proper English (and I know, my English is not nowhere near good). But often users just post in their own language leaving the other users to use google translate.
Why not the other way around? Or the English is so broken that it's difficult to make sense of it.
Again please, do not take offense at what I am saying. I mean no disrespect or to be offensive.
Off course, threads which are dedicated to one user language group should be allowed (and maybe actively enforced), there is already one which is a good example.
In any case I'm just spitballing a few ideas, it's all up to Vernee to decide.
The above mentioned are ideas not demands, just something to think of.
(But at least stickies could help a lot...imho)
