do you recognize a distinction between "forum talkers" and "folks
providing help/guidance/direction to new/needy users"
that is, would you exclude those "forum talkers" who daily *create* an
environment in which the newest of the new can get a foot hold in a
new operating system, learn the ropes, progress in understanding and
technical capability....perhaps to some day (sooner or later) become
do you recognize that not a week goes by that the forum does not see
folks stumble in dazed and confused who are *currently* coders/hackers
in other systems, or *real* professional artist, documentation
providers, designers, team managers, system administrators, etc etc etc
here, look at this guy:
http://forums.opensuse.org/members/techwiz03.html he has been a user
less than a year, had a rocky and confused start but got the help he
need and now helps n00bs and brings a RICH background (in another
system)....which one of the creative contributors on your list could
have better created this new helper?
is there no service provided "the Community" by those who bring along
those new potential contributors? are they not at least potentially
*creating* new contributors from the first day they help a n00b ?
if you compare one "creative contributor" airbrushing a new background
or one "forum talker" creating a new contributor how do you put one in
one class, and the a lower unneeded or unimportant class??
