Over the last couple of days I've been:
Starting my conversation with anyone that has this message displayed:
This is the first time $USER has posted — let’s welcome them to our community!
Welcome to Manjaro!
For those that will "test and come back later" and thanking me, I tell them:
Please don't forget to come back and share the final solution!
For all those that:
mark their subject [Solved]
profusely thank someone else (or very rarely myself),
I DM¹ (Direct Message) / PM (Personal Message) them:
Thank you for your thank you:
But it's better to mark the answer that solved your question as "Solution" like this:
so that your question gets removed from the "unsolved" queue and if anyone else has the same question as you and they look for a solution, they'll find it as well!
If that would not have resolved your issue, don't worry though, someone else more intelligent will drop by and give you a better answer!
We thank you for your cooperation...
- And for anyone retracting a question, (cc @tbg) I tell them:
Why did you retract your question?
If you found a solution, just share it with the community in a reply and mark it as "solution" like this:
so that someone else can benefit from your investigations!
We thank you for your cooperation!
And I'm getting very positive feed-back on all of the above!
So feel free to copy-paste the above and start doing that too, or feel free to leave some constructive comments how we can improve or feel free to totally ignore me...
Note 1: Nein! Kein Deutsche Marken!
Note 2: And before you tell anyone to do a Ctrl+Alt+F2,
tell them that Ctrl+Alt+F1 is their friend!!!
