If I was a new member that had just signed up today, I would probably be sitting in front of my computer right now thinking "Ok, what next?" After four hours of clicking around, probing, reading, trying this button or that button, I would probably still be sitting at my computer thinking "Ok, what next?" (only now I would have glassy eyes and a few empty cans of Jolt soda next to me)
So with this in mind, I am going to be spearheading the 'support' area of our site. I say spearheading because you are going to help me. You, as in the person sitting there right now thinking "how do I do x, y, and z". You, as in the person who thought that last year and wrote a post explaining x, y, and z.
There are some great posts on ActiveRain about how to do this, that, and the other thing. I desperately need your help in identifying these posts. The easiest way I can think of for this to happen is for anyone who has written a help piece to go in and edit the tags on any help posts you have written. The tag I would like you to use is
activerain community support
Anyone who is willing to do this for me will be awarded 100 points for any posts they re-tag, or new posts that are how-to posts. In addition, the posts we select to use for our community support area will get the author a 1000 point bonus. It will also be linked to from our community support area.
Over the next few weeks we will be compiling this support area with FAQ's from the community. This is where the person sitting there right now thinking "how do I do x, y and z" comes in. Send me your questions, or post them here. We want to end up with a stellar place that people can go to get their questions answered.
We will be building a 'support' or 'help' area that will have the answers to almost any question someone could need answered. Our members are so helpful to each other, now we need to give them a long overdue area to compile this great help.
Please, if you know of someone that has written one of these posts, ask them to lend a helping hand and go in to edit their tags. If you have written one of these posts, edit your tags :)
The posts will be compiled on this page. We will then work from that page to start building the community support area of the site.
