    Hey all, was wondering if you thought there was something you wish to have on the forums, on the forums. Or if there is something you wish we had, that we dont like a section. Let me know.

    -'can somebody print this for me?'
    -HELP!
    -maybe a regional section if the robo team indicates that there are a lot of machines being shipped to any 1 part of the world where English isn't spoken commonly.

    How about a useful links page, where we can place links to informative websites on various aspects of 3d printing, upgrades, files, software, tutorials, etc.

    A dedicated area where all the mods and upgrade info for RoBo can be easily searched and found. I know we have the mods section but it seems like that the good mods might get buried. For example I could not find Jeff's bed leveling mod today. I think all the best mods should be easily found.....

    I feel that it would be hard to say "This is an amazing mod, lets separate it from another mod"

    Can we do stickys? 'What is the best mod' is probably subjective, but it might be cool to keep a sticky up top with an index to what people have done.

    I absolutely can't stand it when I'm on some forum that has been around for a long time with thousands of posts, then spend a long time searching for an answer, ask because I can't fine it, and some jerk responds right away with 'haven't you ever heard of the search button'.

    IMO, anything we can do to keep that kind of attitude off of the forum will help to make it a better community.

    For sure, I'd love to do that. I have an idea and will look into it right now and get back to you.

    Yeah I was trying to think of a way we could do a community driven sticky not just for RoBo mods but other stuff that would be a good read for beginners, I was thinking maybe a google docs that a group of us has access to and we could gather information there, then Harry could just post it as a global sticky.

    Hey Seshan, are you saying like a Google doc that is updated by a select few, and the info is given by a select group for me to post in a special thread on the forums, where I get what to post via the Google Doc?

    A wiki would be useful in my opinion. Consolidates some of the forum threads that are presently just floating around.
