    I knew if I let it simmer it would come back to mind -- When can we upload images to ITKE? It's really a chore to create an image, upload it to PhotoBin (or wherever) and then link to it in a post here. I regularly avoid doing it even though it's often a much better answer. I'd be happy to have it limited to .PNGs or .JPEGs.

    I am looking for a posting I came across yesterday, requesting feedback from site users. It was written by a person involved in making a series of advertisements for Allurebay - ABC.....but today I cannot find the request to reply to. I did the research to be able to properly give feedback, and am now dissappointed that I cannot locate it again to respond. - Is there anyway to track this down, other than searching the site or trying to scroll through everything listed yesterday?

    I am looking for a posting I came across yesterday, ... If you're lucky, a search will find it. The first four posts from today that I looked at are gone. I found out after spending too much time creating a decent answer on the first one. Tom

    How about a definition of "IT Knowledge Exchange Community". Is it restricted to "itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com" or is there some overlap with related TechTarget sites? There is a lot that can be improved in the related sites. Tom

    Hi TomLiotta, the ITKnowledgeExchange Community is just what's at itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/*, but we do host the blogs for a lot of the other TechTarget news sites. We're all owned by the same company, but if you have suggestions for those sites, they're best addressed to editor@thatsitename.com. I'm really sorry that you and AndreaF had a few answers deleted ... I know that's a real pain, and we're working on how to better address that while still making sure that non-IT questions don't crowd the forums. We do go through every morning first thing and that's when most deletions of questions that appear to be homework, non-IT related, etc. take place.

    @Michael Morisy: The problem of "homework" is generally understood, but it often seems to be arbitrary and unevenly applied. The question that snagged me the other day was about how to check the length of a variable/value in CL (AS/400). It's a question that arises periodically, yet good answers are rarely supplied. There is no built-in function, but there is a native way that applies to maybe 99% of cases. Because there is no built-in, it doesn't seem to be "homework". And detail that was supplied with the question made it seem less likely. Three other questions were gone in the time that I took to craft the answer to that question. Since they're gone, I can't look at them now to see if they're reasonably considered as homework. OTOH -- Hotel database in Access 2007 -- that's hard to picture as anything but "homework". It's lasted much longer than the four that I was watching. Many similar questions can be found. Some alternative to flat-out deletion (without explanation) seems called for. I've suggested a kind of 'quarantine' that allows some kind of discussion. If nothing else, simply making the question inactive for a few days should get past "homework" issues. Homework generally can't wait many days for an answer. What does the OP see when questions are deleted? Tom

    This site has a lot of diverse knowledge, and I can understand why when a question is researched on the web, this site comes up often in the top 10 searches. I have often found the site when googling for an answer myself. That has to be an achievement on the part of the site users who posted answers into the knowledge base. Some sort of guidance for new (i.e. 0 points users) who want to pose a question might be good. We can usually guess by the way the question is worded, (copied from a homework or revision sheet,) if it is an experienced user or novice. Novices need more guidance when posting, as, posting the problem quickly is often the only thing they can think about. No info on the OS or software used, make for a very long discussion. (Mainly because we are continually asking for more info to reply with an answer.) What happened to the emails we used to get when we clicked to monitor the question? That was a very useful function, it meant I could revue specific posts without having to wade through duplicated copies of new posts in the daily email. Have they been amalgamated into 1 email? That would explain it.
