NO QUESTION - Suggestions concerning this question & answer area

asked 2013-03-28 07:02:05 -0500

I would like to place some suggestions for this question and answer area, in order to create some better results and answers.

  1. Is it possible (regarding the tool used for this forum) to create a range of like 3-4 stickied topic on top of the question page. I am thinking about the following: basic guides for searching information / basic manners and behaviour / ...
  2. Make it possible to append a discussion area? A lot of usefull discussions go to waste due to the structure of the forum. One could filter out good discussions and place them together.
  3. Why not use this information to create usefull guides? If people are up to helping me out on this, we could filter information into usefull guides. I have noticed there are topics like cascade_training / installing OpenCV / C style versus C++ style / ... that are literally answered week after week. And I am guessing one of the main reasons is that they are not published into usefull guides.

Just my 2 cents. Delete if this is not the place to discuss, but feel free to point me to the right persons for this.

Furthermore, I suggest the more explerienced Q&A forum users supply other suggestions in this topic.

1+ 2: looking at how this is made, it does not seem to be so easy to extend

3: maybe let's think of a way to extract recurring themes into tutorials/guides on the main site ?

It is something that @Guanta already suggested and indeed, it seems legit to create a sort of FAQ. It would also create the opportunity to be more strict on this forum, removing all rubbish, and pointing people to the correct place, enforcing better rules.

Good idea indeed. I will follow the thread, if you have a solution and/or need help, let me know.

To Steven: it is great idea, but we do not only need to develop some FAQ or instructions, we also need a group of moderators, who will remove rubbish and etc.

I agree :) I haven't been around that long, but hey I am up for some structure. I have the idea some other newer people also. And I have the idea some people are already taking it as a job to go through newer topics and ordening everything :)
