Private message from Jens-U

Hi Steve,

some standard piece of text you’ll since recently find on the SUSE/Novell/NetIQ forums:

Feedback is important (both negative and positive) and always appreciated. In the past we have we have not actively solicited feedback from the Community and left it up to individual Members to provide feedback (as you did in your post) when they saw fit… but this is changing.

When you, or anyone for that matter, see a post you find particularly helpful you can show your appreciation by clicking on the star below the post. You can optionally leave a brief comment which is always appreciated but it is not necessary.

Clicking on the star assigns reputation points to the poster but more importantly it identifies those posts you find most helpful and notifies both the poster and website administrators. Our goal is to improve the way we support the Community by providing the type of information you find most useful. For that to happen, Members’ feedback is essential!

Thank you.

That type of feedback is accounted by Novell (“website administrators”) to decide how to keep the Knowledge Partner Program running, which is “staffed” by volunteers. Your feedback counts!

With regards,
