i was wondering if you could create a profile on the website so that you can search on people and then have information about them? For example Screen name: Real Name: Occupation: Areas of interest in computers:
etc. etc. etc.
Or would this create to much hassle to create? Just a thought
no way!!!. privacy etc comes into play. I know for one that I would not give this info on a open forum that everyone can see/use. There was a thread a while back that asked members this sort of info and if memory serves right it was pulled for good reasons. Why would you like to see this anyway?.
Many of us prefer the fact that people cannot see whether or not we are currently online and it makes no difference who is trained in what or which subjects they prefer to deal with, as long as questions are answered in good faith.
I almost never answer certain kinds of questions (I get enough of some topics all day during work) and others are the same.
One thing you can be sure of is that few questions sneak by without some kind of solution, so I think it's best to leave well alone since the forums are so successful as they currently stand and the extra work involved in setting up a profile is hardly a cost effective investment for PCA.
