I wonder if there could be a sticky with a "Request for Assistance" form template that would prompt for answers about hardware and exactly what they tried to do to solve the problem on their own, which failed. Maybe also a "lsb -a" section to weed out the Kali and Ubuntu users, if they ask about something that's specific to their distro.
It is a interesting idea, and I think it might be use full to many
users/members, especially new comers, it also would save the members
that help from having to constantly ask the same questions about the system,
I think it is a great idea, Do we have any "volunteers", that would be willing
to take the time to make the template ? I might try, but really am not
very good at this sort of thing, anyone else ?
I can not speak for the administration, but do think it is a good
idea, it would be nice to know before taking the time to make a
template, if they would consider it, and if so, then anyone one
that has some ideas on the structure ( I guess, not sure of the best word)
but any way, if the administration is agreeable, any ideas or samples
of the template could be posted here,..the best one could then be placed
as a "sticky", in the various forums.
I do realize there probably still will be a lot of ones that do not browse the
forum first, and just post, but we can easily just "point" them to the form,
and say "Please fill this out first" ,...
Any way , guess that is about from me, I like the idea, thank you "stevepusser "
for suggesting it.
