I haven’t made the switch to Arch Linux yet, but I’m right now really thinking about it.
I love Arch Linux. I love it’s package manager the most.
Despite it not having a great GUI-based package manager like synaptic or store like Ubuntu has,
pacman is so much more intuitive to me, that I prefer Arch Linux.
I also love Arch Linux’ wiki.
That said, I’m thinking of switching to Antergos, hoping that Antergos’ forum is a bit more forgiving.
The final drop that’s breaking my back is this post:
What happened here is that one of Arch Linux’ forum rules is that you’re not allowed to post images over there.
Is that a rule here as well?
Anyway, the moderator then changes my images to links and asks me to:
“Please post images as thumbnails or as links.”
I come back after a few days, read his post, immediately press edit to comply.
Then I see my images are links.
I figure I must have done this originally so he must mean ‘image links’?
Thumbnail I don’t understand, as there’s no BBCode for it.
So I change my post to image links, thinking I’m complying to the moderator.
My post is thrown into the dustbin and get told to read the code of conduct.
I send an e-mail saying that this is all a misunderstanding.
I said that I got confused, tried to comply, re-read the rules and will comply again.
Could my thread please be re-opened again?
I get this reply:
"I don’t know how any of this is confusing: the rules around images have
been unchanged for over five years now. "
I feel left hanging.
I feel that after this I can no longer ask for help on how to get Asian glyphs in hexchat to work.
If I post the same topic again, I could be accused of cross-posting and get banned.
What am I supposed to do?
