In tune with scottn, I find that many relevant search results from a search engine are actually from this site.

I just recently found this site, and now I pull it up first thing when I start work in the morning as a Unix Admin and monitor all day.

I hope this place remains FREE a lot of sites after they become popular they succumb to temptation of selling out or start charging fees for access which is totally crap then people leave and they start going downhill.

I suggest you can charge for services built around this forum but keep the core knowledge base forums free. A good idea will be doing something like slicehost.com which NEO mentioned recently, since our community has a large mix of students doing homework and Professionals something like this could be very applicable for testing or trying out new ideas. Another area could be professional training like something related to brain dump or selling simulated exams.

Am not being regular these days that I used to be.
But as always unix.com rocks ! Smilie

I like this site very much not only because of the knowledge base, but for the culture of the site which I love and could not find that anywhere.

In a virtual team like this - its unbelievable and the great people here continue to do so. Smilie

Don't worry about that. I agree with you completely. I plan to write a detailed post soon about the value of community in a forum like this versus the value of community in social networking sites where there is little purpose or collaboration. I find the sense of community here much stronger then generic social networking sites.

Could you elaborate on your ideas more?

Thanks.
