vrf Forum Format

Question asked by VRFuser on Nov 15, 2004
Hi Chris,

Yeh! I'm very glad that the vrf exist, it has proved itself on many occasions. But, the only thing it offers that a forum doesn't is an instant email when new post are added....I suppose this is the 'reflector' side of it.

This is really of no use unless I needed that particular solution at that instant in time. However, in 3 weeks time it maybe very useful but I have not archived it so I have to add a post to see if someone can remember it and send me the details.
I hear you say! 'Archive it then'. I say 'Hindsight is a great thing so I suppose I be cautious and archive everything!'

Surely this is not the solution.....

Also, I notice a lot of the discussions become branched where it splits into separate discussions but with the same title. It can becomes difficult to follow.

Take this discussion we're having now. Maybe some users are not interested in it or it may become split.

Obviously I'm being a bit picky here to emphasize the differences between reflectors and forums.

....and have you go Shawn's url?

I distinctly remember a similar discussion to this over a year ago now.....maybe I'll start archiving!

Hi Jason

Answer not from Agilent......

There are a number of good reasons why the VRF is set up in the way it
is. But primarily it is there for people to get instant support from the
membership of the VRF, when you have tried and can't find the answer and
the chips are down. You too will be glad that this is the way that the
VRF "instantly" works.

You will find Shawn's (I think) web site a very useful archive of the
VRF which is searchable. Personally I don't delete any mails and archive
them myself.

All the best

Chris

Hi

Could anyone from Agilent answer why the vrf is not operated as a user
forum and if they have plans to do this?

I am not the only member to have noticed that the same topics keep
repeating themselves and that it is impossible to do a historical search
if you have not archived all the emails you receive.
