Default How to improve this forum

The title of this forum is "Forum Help & Suggestion Center". I have a couple of suggestions how to make this forum better;

1) Include links to non-profit groups on Facebook. Most people realize that solo-forums are failing and must pump more and more "ADs" in front of the readers to support themselves while Facebook groups benefit from millions of readily available readers and are much easier to find.

2) Try to be understanding of newbies.. Many guys a) have a blazer, b) develop a problem, c) find this group, and d) ask a question. In these cases, they may not take a lot of time to research and read all the hundreds of threads here to see if their particular question has already been posted and answered. When a newby does this, let's speak politely to him.

3) Let's not criticize someone for the amount of money they have to spend on tools. If someone buys a $160 software to try to fix their blazer, let's not condescend to them by implying they should have bought something much more expensive.

In short, while a few on this forum may have invested many hours in understanding the forum and many thousands of dollars, and while they should in deed be proud of themselves for doing so, they should not talk down to those who have not.

4) let's reduce the barrage of commercial Ads that bombard the readers here.
