about some rules for the moderators as well ? like deleting the wrong answers and useless posts,
I own a support forum and I always delete the wrong answers to a problem . If you don't do it, when we do a search, we end up with 5 pages of useless stuff and if we post again to ask for the answer we are told to do a search... more it goes and more your forum will become useless , full of answers like : clear your browser's cache and cookies.. answers given by peoples who don't have a clue about what they are talking about.
My moderators are there to delete the useless stuff so that when we do a search on my forum , we get an answer, not 5 pages of useless stuff. I've been using SMF for ages now, been a paying member at one time but got frustrated with the amount of useless threads on this support forum..
don't get mad, there are no other ways to say this.
another thing that I find quite strange, when a newbie ask for an answer to a problem and someone tell him to do some PHP editing and the newbie can barely install SMF, let alone some PHP scripts , I get a good laugh...how will he do this anyway.. why not post a small file so that he can replace the one in his installation... and explain what you did so that those who want to learn can do it.
maybe that I am an administrator of a support forum for too long and I am asking too much , but blaming it all on the members is wrong.. it is the mods and admins who make for a great support forum.
