Allow me to explain
Authored by: sredlums on Jun 26, '09 01:37:10PM

Since I am the one who said 'this is not a hint', let me try to exlain what I meant to say.
Ofcourse, as a simple visitor of this site, I am in no position what so ever to decide what should be posted here.
However, I was under the impression that the hints normally posted here are from the 'normally there is no make the computer do X, but if you follow these step, it will do X!' kind, or the 'lot's of people have difficulties doing Y, but if you do this and that, you can do Y' kind.
The hint we are talking about here is of the 'it is not on the first page of the quick manual, but did you know you can do Z?' kind.

It has nothing to do with being elitist (I am not by a long shot), but just with the fact that I, personally, expect to find 'tweaks' here instead of just tips that CAN be found in the manual or on lots of websites already.
Come to think of it, maybe MacOSXHINTS isn't really the best name for a site wich, as I see it, used to be about tweaks and directions for stuff that's hard to do for most people.

Like I said, it's up to you, the webmaster(s) to decide what get's posted here, but as a webmaster I would also like to get some insight in what the readers think about the content of the site. Well, that's just what this is; my two cents.

Keep up the good work.
