I recently posted a link from LQ regarding a UK thesaurus. A number of people made useful suggestions and I also made suggestions to the poster but, unfortunately, the problem never got resolved.

One of the comments in the thread (post #6) asked a question:

Hello, LibreOffice. Does anyone there read this Forum?

As the poster should know, the answer is officially, no, LibreOffice does not read “this forum”. A while ago though there was a discussion here about another LQ post and the negative image a particular member gave LO. I noticed his next post was dealt with in a concise manner which nipped in the bud the negativity.

The reason for this post is that I think people with LO knowledge should spend more time looking at LQ. An option is to have some kind of official LO representation. I don't know whether this is feasible or practical but linux distros have their own forums (is it feasible for LQ to host a LO forum?). In most cases this means that reps from the distros field questions (is this practical?). This would give a “one stop shop” for Linux related LO problems.

The other option is simply to hop on board and search. Some people still refer to openoffice so a search on “libre” might only filter some of the posts. A search for “office” throws up several non-LO related posts. But, LO probably gets mentioned 1-2 times a week so it is not a huge drain on people's time.

I do tend to spend a fair bit of time at LQ and throw in the odd pearl where I can. But, Linux and LO are hobbies for me. I ain't an expert. I try and point LQ members at this list (not sure whether this is frowned on!) but some people don't want to come. All help appreciated.
