Suggestion to void frequently asked questions and solved user errors?

Hi all,

When a user run into problems, it seems to me, that user will post to
the gr-list help: it doesn’t work
even if the problem has been solved 100 times before.

When I run into problems (not a GR guru) I browse the archives first
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/discuss-gnuradio/
and inject my problem into the search string box. 75% sure that my
problem is there, if not I use google and try harder.

In my opinion it would be easier to do a quicker search when the user
problem
was solved if
user would add [SOLVED] …my terrible problem… to the subject line?
I think this is common behaviour on other groups?

If the subject line had that tag, [SOLVED], I think, GR admin’s CPU
(load would) go down dramatically and help alot of users?

Just as an example: Post to linux kernel using subject “Help, it doesn’t
work”. User solved the problem
but he never told anybody how.

Just a suggestion to minimize the actual problem,
Patrik

Not a good example but a start…

Using the search string option in the archive
Search String [SOLVED] F14

https://lists.gnu.org/archive/cgi-bin/namazu.cgi?query=[solved]+f14&submit=Search!&idxname=discuss-gnuradio&max=20&result=normal&sort=score
