??? on the first part.
Arguably, MNL and other web-based forums that are open to anyone who applies/just visits are also part of social media.
I suggest that you come up with a short text string to redirect newbies to this site.
I frequently point people to threads or posts on MNL, if they have the answer or directly relate.
In a TINY fraction (under a handful of cases), I've seen a few folks react negatively to driving traffic to MNL.
Or we could put more effort into writing FAQ-type documents that could be posted around the web. I'll go add an attribution/permission to my Tips & Tricks post, and you can use that, for starters.
Yes, that could help.
As I said, the amount of confusion (e.g. my car only charges up to ___ miles when it charged up to ___ miles before) and sometimes misinformed/blatantly wrong replies is annoying. Worst part is when and others have gone thru a lot of effort to try to answer only to be attacked by the OP for "mansplaining".
Needless to say, I bowed out at that point. No thanks. Life is too short for that.
