Launching ‘LinuxSay’ – A Discussion Forum for Linux Enthusiasts

August 15, 2012 was just like any other day for most of the world but for us, it was not the same. When the sun rose that day, we took the pledge to help each and every Linux and open source user as far as possible, with an exhaustive and easy to use knowledge base, and thus TecMint was born.

Currently TecMint visited by over a million people each month. Since the day TecMint was born, we have published over 770 quality articles that work out of the box and also have received more than 11,300 value adding comments from TeMint readers.

As we grew in size and quality, we noticed that our visitors were not satisfied with the limited functionality of TecMint. Commenting and replying to comments was not enough. Our visitors needed prompt solutions to their problems. Our team ran a brainstorming session and we came up with another solution; LinuxSay.

    Thanks – great tutorial. Although you have already mentioned this, I would like to emphasis that the LinuxSay members carefully choose the subforum (category) they post to. Oftentimes users post specific questions related to a single distribution (CentOS, Ubuntu, Lunix Mint) in a general discussiion forums (e.g Linux category). This could be a really bad practice since we might end up having bloated general discussins and very few posts in distro-related subforums.

    Keep up the greta job!

      @BrankoTesla,
      Yes I agree with your suggestions, and even I mentioned everything at this tutorial and on the Linuxsay forum, but to be frank we really don’t have a control on users posting. Yes, we do have control to change categories after posting, but it will confuse users..Anyway we try to keep this forum clean and topic related..

      Thanks again for your inputs…
