It seems that lots of newcomers to moodle.org end up in the Lounge and completely miss the message:
“Please do not post here asking for technical help with Moodle itself! Use Moodle Support for that (it’s probably the quickest way to get an answer!).”
and post their Moodle questions in the social forum.
In the hope that less posts of this kind in the Lounge will prevent other newcomers from making the same mistake, I’ve been tidying up and moving discussion threads into the Using Moodle course.
In case you’re wondering how this was done, I’ve written down the method in tracker issue MDL-12622. (I decided not to add it to the Forum module FAQ as I thought it pretty unlikely that people would want to move discussion threads between courses. If I’m wrong, please vote for the issue!)
For those of you who asked how I hid certain themes database entries last week, please see the Database module FAQ.
Whilst we’re waiting for blog comments to come in Moodle 2.0 (MDL-8776), if you have any comments about my blog posts, please feel free to send me a Moodle message.
