    Hi!

    More and more new threads seems to be mostly about helping with different things.

    To earn money, codes, facebook, questions from here and there.
    I would suggest making a new section called "Help/Helping" section where all does threads goes.

    Anymore who think that would be great, reply here.

    Most if not all threads in the forum are about a issue of some sort, or they turn into an issue later on in the thread. Just so you realize doing that would transfer the forum into just one section. That's not tight knit.

    Are you referring to a particular section?

    Yeah, mostly threads are about to getting help with different things.

    But let say.. Help setting up a script, or helping with programs, tools, code, whatever.

    I mean text questions, can be continued.

    Or why not add a help/helping section in each section.

    Like WhiteHat SEO // Helping
    Blackhat SEO // Helping
    Making Money // Helping

    Those which ain´t need helping section is Download Section, Main Forums, Home, Services For Sale, Hire A FreeLancer, Introductions, The Lounge, etc.

    So i mean .. Helping Section and one "ordinary" .. like we have now.. But noone asking for help..

    Can maybe be tough to introduce to so many forum members here but, i think we at least sort it out better.

    Especially Facebook Section right now. People are asking the same thing, over and over and over and over again. They ain´t read nothing that has been written before.
    And those helping section, we could also add sticky ones. With that i mean questions that has been asking over and over and over again. Someone can make a tutorial, and letting that be sticky.. :)

    So we ain´t need to see those same question over and over again.

    i agree, even if each section has a sticky at the top that has to be read and you can ask questions in there, anyone who asks the same question below can get beaten to a pulp or something just as fun

    the alternative i guess could be a noob section, where posts don't count and the kiddies are let loose to fight amongst themselves, maybe a grownup can visit every now and then to break up fights and whatnot :p

    I agree, and i think there should be some rule for new registered members. like under 50 post or under 1-2 or X month only able to make new threads in those sections...

    Also a good suggestion.

    But questions like "How to invite all my friends code?" <-- That question has been both questionized and answered i think 20-30 times.. Useless in my eyes.

    Why not letting someone to create a tutorial, a video or something so everyone can see how easy that code is for adding friends. And make that tutorial sticky one in RED Text as you suggest.

    Many questions has already been shared, answered many many times over and over.. I am willing to help out with this helping section as much as i can. I love to help so. :)

    Haha!

    "Invite your friends to your group, and i invite my to yours?" <- Haha..
    Yeah, how much my page worth, bla bla. Sometimes you maybe seen me getting bullshitting back to those who starting those threads.

    It´s not becouse i hate em or something like that.
    But for me it´s just like beeing lazy and not reading something before they post, they don´t want to or what? I mean questions has been answered many times.

    Example "How many friend can i add per day on facebook?" ..
    That´s why i reply to all those, so they can wake up and get some information from this forum instead of just make a thread and think they will get all info in 0 min..

    Hate that.

    Seems like a good idea this. Another alternative could be a sticky thread in each section/subsection called faq, with all the common questions related to that subsection answered there. Or just maybe links to the threads where people asked the questions and where they were answered.

    i could probably write a tutorial or two (actually a FAQ) while i'm at work tomorrow (not as if i'm going to actually do any work at my day job) :p

    i'll see how i go, shoot me a pm with anything you think needs to be added and i'll keep you posted.. off to bed now though :yawn:

    I would love to contribute more help to this forum!
    I would also like to make a bunch of tutorials for those new BHW ones.

    I hope some Mods/Super Moderator/Any Admins can see this suggestion and maybe take this into something good.

    FAQ was also a good suggestion mate. Great!

    @OP: Thanks for your suggestion. I love to share and help as much as I can, too. But unfortunately I don't think your suggestion would solve the problem.

    For instance, you said...

    This is all true, but it wouldn't be any different in a help section. Those people just tend to not read what was posted before. And after a short while you'll have exactly the same thing going on...People asking the same question over and over again. And they wouldn't stop asking their question in the regular forum section either.

    So, mods would have even more work to do than now.

    Hi Peter.

    Well.. i mean if someone wants to make tutorial how to setup example an fbml page, they can contact an mod/admin to be approved after they showed their tutorial help for those newbies.
    And also make it sticky.
    Or as another said.. A FAQ Sticky thread.

    Of course that would help. And, don't get me wrong, I like your suggestion. I just still think that people will abuse the suggested help forum as much as they do now on the regular forums. And, as I mentioned in my earlier thread, they will do it then in both forums. I hope we'll figure it out how we can make this work after all.

    Hi, Peter.

    No problem man, im not taking your suggestion as negative.
    All suggestion for me is positive suggestion.

    You can´t walk without shoes right. Im very glad and appreciate taking your time, reading and replies to this thread as well.

    As you said. Somehow and with help from Mod/Admins we all can make this forum better if we share our thoughts and thinkings.

    Yeah I don't think it would work. You're still going to get people who don't post in the proper section. There was a point where a lot of threads were being placed in their proper locations by mods(not saying there isn't anymore), but that shit gets way tedious over time.

    The sections themselves are for helping, thought jerking posts, methods, or news. The majority of posts you get are for help/questions, so that whole section would basically transition into that own little subhelp section. I can see expanding a forum topic with it's own new section, only in the case where there's a new development in that topic. Such as craigslist being overrun with CLAD/CLBOT/TROPAL posts as soon as the bots are released, but it don't since that section just shriveled up quite a bit and it not that overrun with them anymore.

    You probably should had put a poll, with the pros and cons.
