I was thinking about this the other day in the car... (yes, my every waking moment is spent thinking about TPF) :lmao: We get a lot of repeat questions here, and we know this. We also know that it's hard to make a "sticky" on some topics because so much of the responses to these kinds of things is made up of the opinions of the various members of the forums. Ok, fair enough. However, it seems to me very much that some kind of "Ok, new guy go read these things here before posting your question" would cover a lot of the repeat questions... "What is ISO?", "Why is my picture grainy?", "What kind of camera should I buy?", "Is this a scam?", etc. So... my thought is what about hosted and heavily moderated discussions that remain as stickies of a sort? For example, say you setup a heavily moderated forum area for recurring questions. A moderator posts a question for discussion such as "Whether or not to use RAW", and then everyone who wants to can weigh in. Any posts that are offensive or outright battling are kicked back to the poster/discarded/whatever. This is optional, but you could then do something like leave the topic open for 14 days and lock it, with a potential re-opening of the topic for re-analysis in the future. You could also potentially leave the post open forever, but my thought was that you would have sort of an open-forum round-table type of thing and then close the discussion off, just as you would end a live discussion with people in attendance. Perhaps a moderator could post an impartial summary at the top of the thread concluding the conversation, even. (just another option) This way, you retain the discourse and the knowledge base of information as contributed to by the readers here, but it cuts down on people getting really irritated at having to answer the raw vs jpg thread over and over again, which would cut down a bit of frustration and allow people who are here regularly to focus more quality time on topics that are less recurring. This would also give people a bit of a primer available to folks if they don't notice and post a question asking for something we have already discussed... you could very easily say "Oh the 'What is depth of field' question. See this link first and if you're still confused, come chat with us and we'll talk some more about it." etc. The logistics could all vary, but hopefully you see the general idea.
