N00b questions and Pix only will have distinct buckets starting 1June2020
As many of you are aware our little community here is growing and with it we are experiencing some growing pains with the site. You may have heard the mod staff complain of “502 errors”. This error manifests when we attempt to move posts to very large topics and the task fails.
There are (3) topics that give us the most trouble, Pictures and nothing else!, Noob question thread!, and Derail Jail. After much research and troubleshooting it appears this issue is a bug in the discourse software we are using for forum.
To mitigate the 502 issue we will be using a monthly category for each of these topics. We tested this in May with Derail Jail and it worked quite well - thanks to everyone for giving us lots of material to work with
1June2020 (system time) n00b questions topic will close and the new topic for June will be published here
I suppose a n00b questions category has been considered, and dismissed?
it has the advantage that each question gets it’s own thread. so the convo is clearer. and no large topics.
it has the disadvantage/advantage that some people’s threads can get ignored easier.
it has the disadvantage that it pollutes the main page feed with a lot more topics. which is why I presume it’s dismissed. would be interesting if discourse had a plugin or something to filter a category from the main feed.
Some of the threads people dig up from years ago and then proceed to ask “how fix skaetbord” when the question thread is literally on the front page all the time and gets bumped every 15 minutes amazes me
Noob to forums and esk8 here. I have a choice of buying a barely used Meepo awd pro or a Bustin v2. I want to gain more experience and knowledge as to esk8 s and riding. The bustin is $300 more. Is the bustin worth thee 300 more as far a quality and product?
No, at least not from a user point of view. Not sure if the site admins can enable something which adds to the uder preference. I don’t think it’s that much of a difference to scroll from the bottom up, instead from top down.
