I can't find any unread threads. I did a search on unanswered posts. Even ones from nine hours previous had been read anywhere between six and seventy-three times by people.
No thread goes unread here. They may go unanswered (and usually with good reason), but they do not go unread.
And, of course, the fact that I'm a mod doesn't necessarily imply that I have the answer to your technical questions. On the contrary, if you start a new thread, other users who had your (hardware or software) problem might be able to help you. Remember that anyone can read your thread and warn you if s/he sees something suspicious in the suggestions you are given.
Should you have any doubts on what the suggested commands do, you can always ask for further explanations.
If you use PMs instead of posting in thread, no one will be able to see whether the suggestions you're given will break your computer.
OR, if you really don't trust anyone on this forum then you might as well try Canonical's commercial support:
Okay I do first want to state that this topic should be closed. However, there is one point that I would like to make I'm extremely new to Linux, and I am still learning how to do things in linux. See I'm having problems installing certain things, and I would love to be able to search for those on the forums. If PM's are being sent to the Mods how is that helping us noobs? Like when I was wanting to install Abobe Arobat Reader 8.1 on my system, I could have easily PM'd a mod, but I did the research and put a how to guide in the forum in either the general help or the absolute beginner talk area.
I know that the Mods are only volenteers and moderate this forum in their free time. The Mods have certain things that they do, and one of them I don't think is to receive who knows how many PM's daily for help when if you search on the forums or on google you will find the answer. For those that have a hard time trusting people that give you advice on here or else where if you find close to the exat same answer from different people then that gives more to trust on. I like the job that the mods are doing on here, and I want to personally thank them for volenteering their time to us, and for helping us when they have a chance to.
I personally think that the PM's are for a really quick help on something that can be done in 1 or maybe 2 steps, but if it something such as installing a downloaded .tar file or .rpm file post it to the forum so that everyone can have a chance in helping you out. Sometimes you don't get answered right away, and there could be a post that could take a week or 2 to get answered, but it will get answered just be patient.
Proper grammar means the difference between
"I helped my uncle, Jack off the horse" and "i helped my uncle jack off the horse"
