I know I need to take a break now and again (when I feel myself getting more easily annoyed, which is happening a bit this last week), and I was thinking about the health and well-being of various other people on the forum too.
The trouble is, if the forum is active then people will always be drawn back here to help out.
I was wondering if there was a good way to enforce some "time off" for the regulars who wouldn't take time off voluntarily, and that led me to:
A Forum Holiday
The basic idea is to "close" the forum (or rather, make it read-only) for a few days every so often (maybe one weekend every month).
This way it's still accessible but people can't post anything new. Then people have to do something else instead - and give the "usual suspects" a bit of a break.
I suspect the best time would be prior to a new stable update set - certainly closing it just after one would probably be a bad idea...
So, to the
Main questions for discussion
- What do you think?
- Will it work?
- Will it annoy too many people?
- Will it make you take a break?
- Is it crazy enough that it just might work?
And a basic poll,
Should the Manjaro forum enforce a regular "holiday"?
