There’s many excellent ideas/suggestions above [but also one or two total hardarse perspectives that i hope do not prevail]. As someone who supposes she’s probably no longer a noob, but who knows she’s still closer to the clueless rather than clued-in end of the scale, i would just like to mention this concept… i entreat experienced skilled knowledgeable Manjaroos to always strive to remember those dim faraway days when they were also noobs, back when you had a whole lot less knowledge not only of Manjaro & Arch, but also of Linux per se.
Whilst i’m sure that many of you popped out of your mothers’ wombs with mouse & keyboard in hand already, please try to remember that you now have a vast accumulated internal treasure-trove of acquired knowledge, & maybe sometimes you might have forgotten just how initially daunting it all is to a noob. To be a bit [unfortunately] Rumsfeldian, they often don’t know what they don’t know [aka, they have numerous unknown Unknowns], & in various situations they don’t even grasp the right concepts & jargon to mount an effective Search campaign… so that they might not make the best searches using the most appropriate keywords… or they might be so overwhelmed at the flood of partly incomprehensible or completely irrelevant hits filling the first seven results pages that they give up, not realising that the perfect answer was on the unseen eighth page. To experienced Manjaroos their subsequent post might then seem lazy, unresearched… but maybe you should not make assumptions?
In my experience since coming to Manjaro late last year, the forum is [mostly] a warm, friendly mega-helpful place… it has a nice “feel” to it. It would be a shame to lose it.
All that said, i thoroughly agree with this thread’s implied adage about the preference of teaching the villager how to fish, rather than just endlessly handing out free fish. It’s just that it’d be a pity if the adopted method was so unfriendly & severe that it made the villager completely anti-pescatarian.
