Let me first address your topic title: Why is Manjaro afraid of questions?
This is a similar question as: Why are you still beating your (_________)?
Is a loaded question with a false or questionable presupposition.
an operating system - an OS can’t answer questions, but respond to commands from the user
a Team of people that put together the OS
a Team of moderators that are focused on a clean forum
a couple of contributors that help in all their ways possible to the project and forum.
community driven project, that now has the Company (not a Corporation) as the legal entity behind it, same as for the forum.
So, from whom did you expect an answer exactly, and when that answer will suffice?
All the questions and issue got answered by one team member or another, and addressed with justifications. If was a debate, then would not be closed. So, what exactly are you looking for: answers or a platform for debate?
A point in discussion here in this topic is this part:
That is not referring to only code from contributors, but also forum contributors (anyone registered), regardless the information/questions/technical support provided, it becomes a textual contribution to the forum. And Manjaro team/moderators/contributors can close a topic if the answers got provided.
If anyone requires more clarification on what that means, we are up for it to provide it, but any disingenuous control of the narative from users, with loaded question, trickster and sophistry
OP only signed up a few hours ago but has been granted Trust Level: basic user (TL1)
and this appears to allow flagging posts
Basic badge on Manjaro Linux Forum
New user restrictions have been lifted; you’ve been granted all essential community abilities, such as personal messaging, flagging, wiki editing, and the ability to post multiple images and links
If moderators are having a lot of posts flagged in error, flagging should be changed to Member (TL2) at some time in the future, but there are not enough TL2 members yet
While the content may be “creative commons” it is still plagiarism to present someone else’s work as your own
this also seems like a very loaded question, which is already answered in the Terms of Service
no mention of reciprocation from other Linux distributions/communities, but I would not expect past members of Manjaro community to post links back to https://archived.forum.manjaro.org/ on other distributions/communities for various reasons
I am happy if a good solution is shared to anyone that needs it. credit for a contribution is good to know that it was worth the effort, but making it compulsory does not seem like a good idea
