    One thing I like about having bought (and awaiting) a ROBO 3D is that it seems to be a good solid design with many small quirks and gotchas that we can all deal with if we have patience. The community support appears to be fantastic. To bolster that support, I wonder if it would be good to create a diagnostic chart or in AI terms and Expert System to help with fault analysis. Does one such thing exist? What would be the best way to do it given the nature of a ROBO 3D?

    Yes, I found Melody's FAQ after posting this. I looked for software that would produce an expert system on a web page, but it was $150 and mac only. there are free ones tho. But yeah, the forum is sufficient if you look properly i suppose.

    hmmm, how about if i wrote software that read in Melody's FAQ and then you type in a search string or question, and it looks for areas of high word density in the document? Surely such programs exist....

    Good, the search on the forum is abysmal.
    Even when I know who or what I am looking for to point someone at.

    Hey Mark, it is possible the forum has gotten to the size I need to enable the advance search, which is something on the back end for larger forums, and it is the way and resources the search tool works. I'll look into enabling this soon.

    One of the problems I've found is knowing where to post depending if it's a question or 'check this out' post.

    There are so many different queues it's confusing. Perhaps a description is needed on each forum link. There have been a lot of post in General discussion that that cans be in other links that better describe the posts. I hope an improved Search engine will help the situation.

    Also is it possible to move certain important tips and tricks to its own link? A super link within the form? Melodies FAQ is getting too messy. Mixing different versions all into one FAQ. It would be great to see a version specific posts bundled together.

    Harry I think that would be a wise move the advanced search may work for this forum as the information is a bit spread out and not truly categorized well
