    I do the same and usually while searching one thing something else will catch my eye and off we go

    Ah, yes. I've been aware of some dramas on the forums over the 12+ years I've been lurking. As fascinating as they can be for those not directly involved, any entertainment value they provide is secondary to the ability for us to help others.

    forums are a good way to support the linux distributions that you use. just being a member counts as supporting the community and of course the more knowledge you gain the more you can help others as well.

    Why? I was asked to be.

    Lubuntu wanted a team member here, it ended up being me.

    I'm only glad most of the questions are answered by others, as with my skill-set/knowledge-base most of the time I'd struggle to know where to start. I note the questions (open in a new tab) & monitor them... hoping that the ones I can't answer get helped by others... which nearly always ends up happening... so Thanks Everyone !!!

    (I do the same with askubuntu, but there seem to be a lot more easier questions there...)
    (I also noted coffee & donuts - I haven't found them yet...)

    They're stashed out the back in the staff office apparently. I'm led to believe they have a guard donkey QIII guarding them

    Ha ha! Why yes! They are in the staff office and I guard them carefully -- in my tummy!

    Re: Why are you a active forum member

    How many posts or how frequent is considered "active"?
    I usually only come here to find help. Hopefully if I ask a question it will help others with the same question or problem.
