Re: Has our board been taken over by a flurry or newbie morons?

I second the motion.

I like jerrys idea of a FAQ area with good answers to how, what and especially why we long range hunt.

I bet that we already have enough posted info on these subjects to group on to a permanent page for newbies to read for a quick study.

I would also leave the "basics, just starting out" section fully intact. This would allow you to have a very plain FAQ page and once that was read a newbie would still feel comfortable with asking a "newbie" question.

Thats just my HHO (Hopefully helpful oppinion)

Re: Has our board been taken over by a flurry or newbie morons?

A FAQ setup is an idea that has been mentioned in the past and it's a good idea in my mind. A Len has mentioned he's considering changing the software for the board and perhaps we'll change the setup at that time to have a FAQ setup. It's a little different than the board, at least in my reckoning, we'd need dedicated space and a "pre-forum" setup to place static links to the good stuff. We'll see what happens but just know this desire has not fallen on deaf ears, logistics and support are needed.

And now back to our regularly scheduled thread....

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Suggestion
Yes...you could add a FAQ section and that might help some....

However, I would suggest adding a actual section titled something like: NEW TO This SITE ??? READ ABOUT OUR PURPOSE AND INTENT...

Something like that, then define what it is that we foster and seek and work to accomplish. Spell it out plain and clear. That way, those who come here may know right up front, where we generally stand on some basic issues. It also allows you to refer flamers to it..noting for them that it is suggested reading. etc etc.
It should stay at the top of the columns and be in bold dark letters so you notice it.

This practice is not uncommon in forums because it simply solves some problems and sets the tone, right up front.

regards

Paul

I agree with ppro and Wayne. No use in creating enemies, when we can eliminate enimies by making them our friends. Just need a clear, concise, explanation of the boards goals; for new members.

I am seeing some really good ideas here. I'll keep them in mind while I wait for my new software selection to make its way out of beta testing.
