Hi Marc, *,

Would it be a good idea to organize a monthly call for a AskLibO blitz?

I think this would solve some of the outstanding unanswered questions
We could all agree on maybe a 2-day spree where we could all check in and
answer as many questions as possible. The 2-day spree would also allow
for a
return to those who answered just in case of a need to update and reply
the answer.

While this will bring the # of unanswered questions down, I'd rather
have people who ask question also answer other ones :-)

People don't make enough use of their votes yet, they are not really
familiar with the system yet.

What I'd like to avoid is that there will be 10 people answering all
the questions...

But going though the unanswered ones (preferrably in "oldest first"
order) is of course a good idea, but hopefully it will not be the same
people doing all the work.


I am an answer contact for LO (and OO) questions in Ubuntu on Launchpad
[1].  So I had a look about a week ago at the unanswered question in
AskLibO, but I must admit I found it very heavy going.  Some of the reasons
why are:

1) They need specialist knowledge to give a good answer.
2) Vague questions which need more details to know how to give a good
3) OS details needed for a correct answer (I am using Ubuntu Linux).

I will also admit that I do not much like the 'Ask' format.  I just want to
help people.  I'm not interested in Votes, etc.  To me it all gets in the
way of engaging with the user.  Sometimes you need a sequence of questions
and answers to get to a good solution.  The Ask format isn't really a good
way to do that.  Forums are better.
