1. In order for the rules to have any meaning, there has to be at least some moderation. Is that possible? Who "owns" this forum? Are they willing to concede some power to regular participants?
There already is moderation, just not enough (in my opinion).
2. RE: Do Not Bump Threads. Sometimes this is helpful. Often I won't have time to respond to all messages I'd like to. A little bump reminds me, "hey, I meant to help that person." I suggest something like "Do not bump threads more than once every three days and never more than twice."
I think there is a difference as to how one bumps. If one says *bump* only, that should be forbidden. At leas I think so.
One can, and should, state something like this:
Since last post I've tried this:
//some code with a few tweaks
List some useful comments on the experiences made since last post, and maybe take time to thank those who have helped you.
If one have obtainen any information useful for the helper, write that too.
If the rules are too vague, one will never be able to use them in a... well useful
way. (once again, my opinion
This should be [glow]STRICTLY[/glow] forbidden if you ask me.
It's just not what I want the Arduino community to accept.
We should value information, and give before we take.
