A link near the top board index --- Facts

Fx In the same box as this link reside could'nt there be a link for Facts learned by forums
with solutions from the forum that works, Incl. Known solutions from earlier

Maintained and commented carefully, and as simple as possible, by admin's ?

well - - there is the FAQ section, at the top of the screen,
but having a Fact(s) section, that included 'Known solutions from earlier Posts',
would be tricky to achieve, as some of those older posts, can get out-of-date, very quickly.

that is - LMf is run by a bunch of "volunteers" who Donate their Time,
as they "deem the LMf" to be a very useful arena, & that it is used to promote the LinuxMint Operating System.

and whilst you have a very valid point - - there would be a colossal amount of work,
in maintaining such a Fact Section.

& Yes - - you're right - - alternatives, such as Mr Google - don't always Help any N00B
:shock:
but - there is no real alternative, to your suggestion.
:(

but - - there is Light at the end of the Tunnel:
https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/
is a project, that is supplied by one of our Forum Members.
:D

Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] - when your problem is solved!
and DO LOOK at those Unanswered Topics - - you may be able to answer some!.

I think Pjotr's site is great and earns a more visible/accesible space.
And see the point with the big job maintaining such a section..
