Just a thought as to what I would like to see here, I would love to see a way we as viewers can give either a thumbs UP or a thumbs DOWN to reply given.
I've always thought that GW's approach to running a forum was always "bare bones" whereas other forums offer much more comprehensive features. It wasn't that long ago when you couldn't even edit a post. I wish I could have a thumbs up or down on the usefulness of their ads.
Too much of a chance for a popularity contest. A member should obtain as much information in total as possible and then make their own decision based on that information.
Why do posters have to approve of a suggestion? Just because someone disagrees with the suggestion, or the suggestion is one of several possibilities how is it automatically "thumbs down".
There is already a declining number of problem solving contributors in case anyone hasn't noticed so why do anything that might drive more away.
Thumbs up, DA.
You gave me a laugh. Thank you. A long tough day at work.
Sorry, DA, just couldn't resist.
Too much of a chance for a popularity contest.
Sign my name to DA's post...lol
There already seems to be some cliques on some of the forums, that might make a newbie not feel welcome.
Good one Sue_va

Well stated DA.
In worrying with these things since WIN95, if IÃ¢ÂÂve learned one thing it is that there is no Ã¢ÂÂone wayÃ¢ÂÂ to fix many problems. If a suggestion seems dumb to some person, it could be that the dumb resides in his head.
You can sign my name to DA's post too. :-))
