Before the Dexterity forums shut down there were long discussions in the private moderator regarding the direction of the forums and what to do about certain perceived problems. In the end Steve decided to shut them down. Now that the forums have moved over here we still have to deal with the same problems. One of the main problems is a general degrading of the quality of posts over time. As time has gone on there are more "noise" posts. That has the effect of driving away the more thoughtful posters, and so eventully your noise to good post ratio greatly favors noise and the forum is essentially dead as a good resource. So the question is. How do we keep the noise at a minimum? Various things are being considered already but we thought we'd put the question to the members. What would you suggest we do to keep the quality of posts as high as possible thus extending the usefullness and life of the forum?
