    I have to give rave reviews to this forum. I don't post here much, but I have spent plenty of time learning. I have posted, but then I learned that I just didn't look hard enough. No one said anything negative to me, mind you. I think the root of what I am getting at is that questions *do get answered* here.

    What I would ask of the people with the deeper knowledge is to maintain your patience. Sometimes I know I just haven't done the *right* search yet or have misunderstood something about the way the phone ticks. When that happens, it's hard to even find the right path to a solution. For someone who may be nervous, that may mean posting without thinking things through... posting without reading the stickies and FAQ's... that kind of stuff.

    Any kind of forum is intended to be dynamic. If *SEARCH* was the answer to everything, then the forum would be better replaced with a simple knowledge base. It's not a knowledge base, though. It's a community of users with all levels of expertise and ability.

    On the flip-side of this coin... most things can already be found here that are of a technical nature. I read here all the time and find my solutions here all the time. That speaks well for the community. The knowledge is here, and the knowledge is shared freely.

    Anyhow... back to lurking...

    In-general, I feel a forum is supposed to be a place where knowledge of the subject is shared amongst forum members with the overarching objective of advancing knowledge. Providing a home-base, so to speak, is an important function that supports that main objective. It consolidates knowledge. This forum certainly provides a home base for dx users. So to that end, dxf and the approach on which this thread focuses is a success.

    My caution to new users is to please exercise patience both in hacking and in awaiting help. Dxf walks a fine line between being a knowledge forum and simply acting as customer service for vzw. Let's all remember these are real people with real lives who volunteer their time to help.

    And to those that are doing the helping, this stuff is complicated. Keep having patience with the newer folks.

    Keep up the good work folks.

    I'll readily admit to having crossed over to the darkerside once or twice and having a snarky reply deleted with a nice pm from a mod...

    it is a struggle at times for me to not hit that 'submit' button (born button pusher), and it's usually the post from some one who just dashed blindly into the deeper waters that cause's my frustration to come out...

    i am trying very hard to just let those posts go if i can't bring myself to overlook it, and i really appreciate the people who are able to display a level of patience that i do hope to be able achieve myself someday (likely much easier if I wasn't working with unknowing doe-eyed customers on a regular basis)

    Bumped, with this note.
    We have a great community here, due to the great members we have, and no one knows that better than staff here, as we spend a lot of time reading everything.
    For those of you that have been on the receiving end of a courtesy PM from myself or any staff member, the PMs are truly a courtesy, we don't like to change anybody's post without a PM to them. Believe me, staff knows the good guys from the not-so good, and we understand that mistakes happen
    Thanks for being a part of our community

    Always feel free to ask what may seem to be an obvious or noob-ish question here. You won't get flamed like at some forums. That's why we love it here!

    If you want to see how a forum looks and feels when Flaming, Insults and Worse are openly allowed and encouraged, you need go no further than the Hot Deals forum at Slickdeals.
    I stopped posting there FOREVER due to the flamers who make their mission in life verbally abusing others.
    Here you are treated politely and fairly!
