I want to participate here at AskUbuntu and am compelled to contribute based on information that is not being found in many of the discussions but because of the absolute strict and high bar set by the moderators, I am unable to make those contributions and provide ample and necessary help that is the prime value and directive of the open source community. Gatekeeping is not a value of the FLOSS community.
While I completely appreciate and respect those participating here, you all are also missing out from other very experienced people that can also provide real answers to many very arcane problems kinda instantly.
I am new here and after reading the rules, regulations and policies find myself at a loss because I probably would be providing more answers than questions. Plus, for any questions I do have that are already listed in this database, I cannot gain any points as my question is automatically rejected.
So, there is no real endgame here except to peruse the vast database of questions and invent new questions that have not already been asked. Why would I spend my time doing that when I am trying to get answers and be part of a discussion to do that? My job doesn't pay me enough to do that. I need to get real actual paying work done. Spending hours to build some unique and restrictive reputation does not produce any results.
Am I missing something here?
