The quality of information and articles is excellent, to take this to a new level can I suggest the following.

The forums gives the site owners a great insight to the needs and issues of the members. However as time goes on we will possibly end up with the same problem we have with other free forums . There is a lot of excellent information spread all over the site and cross referencing is poor. A topic can be raised in one forum thread which may be more appropriate in another thread or which ends up deviating to the discussion of another related query. A simple search can of course miss this excellent info.

My suggestion is to have a way of classifying the question AND the answers more specialised headings. they can then remain where ever they are initially posted but will then be more visible when searches are made at a later date.

I can see that the experts could end up repeating the same info continually as new members join (or as existing members needs change and they need info on areas they previously ignored in the forums.)

Ideally when a thread brings up a new topic, which is then comprehensively covered in the thread. perhaps the expert (on that topic) could "expertly" summarise all the info in the thread and post that to a special archive!?. He could also (or instead of the above) classify the thread under the various specialised headings to ensure it will be found by those searching for the information it contains.

Practically speaking the above would not be appropriate for all threads as some are too specific to one individual's needs and of no general interest.

This requires more work initially by the experts but could be set up to be a quite quick process. In the long run it should save a lot of time for the experts who would be able to either point a questioner to "archive articles" or tell him to search under "keywords" recommended bt him.
