    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I note that a number of those are qmail related. In such a case, you might want to go to the qmail web site and post your questions in their support forums. Here is a link to the default qmail mirror site: qmail: Second most popular MTA on the Internet

    Here is a link to the Linux Experts web site that I am also involved with: http://www.linuxexpert.org/

    The most active Linux forum I know of is LinuxQuestions. There are usually several pages of new posts each day.

    that's the one i would have suggested, too - very active...though they don't have that close-knit family touch that I feel here...

    I also find it increasingly difficult to get answers. One strategy that works for me is to pose a question on stackoverflow or some stackexchange site - if your question is not well formulated it will be rejected or downvoted, and I find being forced to formulate the question usually points me in the right direction.

    Asking the right question certainly makes a difference. A title of just "Help me" won't get much response. You need to be as specific as possible, and give enough information to allow people to formulate a good answer. Communication can be difficult, but it's essential.

    Regards,

    Nice site, I just joined. It looks like a nice start to an intelligent community.

    I find that if you join the forum of the Distro that you're running it's sometimes easier to get answers to your questions. Case in point(pun intended) the Point Linux forum where I can ask about my Point Linux installs. Since it's the only Distro that I run it's where I can normally get the most info about it and Peter, the developer of Point Linux is on the forum regularly so I can get answers and info directly from him.

    yep, agreed. i joined the Fedora Forums for the same reason (though i rarely go there directly anymore, sometimes google takes me there). Also joined PerlMonks for perl-specific help, too. they are VERY active/responsive and I've never had an issue go unresolved.
