Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

No... It would be Saucy having a fit about your titles not being capitalized... or some such business...

I can see the value of developing both...

FAQ;

If you want to know about these controversial and eternal topics please reference the sailing wiki first to aquaint yourself with the previous pitched battles indepth and expert perspectives.

List all the dead zombie horses here (and HEY I noticed that someone fixed the thread title! ; -P)


Wiki

List all the dead zombie horses and the articles about them here.

Would this make sense?

Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

My only concern is new sign ups never read these sources. How often do you read the documentation??

So how do they know to do this?

Déja Vu, All Over Again?

If no one here can agree about any of these topics, who's going to write definitive FAQ answers? We'll be arguing about that first thing. Easier, I think, just to refer people to the Search function.

Ye can't have 11 items on a "Top Ten" list. That's the whole point: you have to prioritize to arrive at the ten most important things. The whole list can be as long as your arm. If there are fifteen things on the list, the Top Ten list doesn't become a "Top Fifteen" list. What you can argue about is which should be numbered in the top ten.

Good Lord, I sound like Piggy in The Lord of the Flies… where's my conch?

Maxingut said in post #66: My question is what happens to a forum when every question has been asked and answered a hundred times?

Does the character of a forum change when it is mature?
You either lose interest and move on to do something else with your time, or start asking existential questions about the nature of the forum.

Seriously, these things are more like organisms, with their own growth/maturity cycles, than they are organizations. Learn to enjoy each season of your life, instead of wistfully looking back on the season before. Being in the now is important.

Good original post, Target9000

pirate Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

I sold my wwll Navy sextant for enough money to buy 2 gps/plotters and a plastic sextent that works as good as the old one and I dont have to polish it!

Horses come and horses go but I sure do miss my Molly Mule!

What happened to the dead horse icon???

May the wind whisper behind your ears.

Or multiple questions with the same answer.

For example

Q: I know nothing about sailing. Should I take sailing lessons?

A: Yes, of course.

Q: I know nothing about sailing, but I have a great deal on a M26X. Should I go offshore.

A: Yes, of course.

I think serious folks would read a FAQ. The guy who decided last week that it would be great to sail around the world probably won't read it. He's not about reading or learning as he has it all figured out already. And it's just a passing fancy anyway.

I just looked at the Wiki thing for the first time. Doesn't appear to be too far along.

I think I'll just :dead horsebeat::deadhorse beat:
