EXPERTS: Cleanup help needed - Hardware subares

Hello everyone,

Most of you know that I am responsible for the cleanup of the old questions. When the Asker leaves a question open and there is no activity in the question for more than 21 days, the question is called abandoned and it needs to be closed administratively. But for doing this, we need someone to review the question and make a recommendation. And that is what the Cleanup Volunteers are doing.

More information can be found here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hs7

If you decide to help, please post here and I will assign you a range. Ss these are small areas, most probably you will get a full area to taje care of.  Please do not post recommendation in any question that is not assigned to you.

The areas which I search volunteers for from Hardware are:
# Mac Comm.
# Modems
# HP Printers
# Scanners
# HP Scanners
# Handhelds/Wireless
# Notebooks Wireless

All of them has less than 10 questions per week abandoned and all I need is someone to take care of these once per week:)

Please if you see a recommendation in a question you had participated in, read it and post if you object, explaining why. This will help us a lot

Thanks in advance

AnnieModAuthor Commented:
Hardware has a CV which is on a vacation ;) So I need help there only until he is back.At least for now ::) I keep your name in my book for a replacement :)

 I would love some help on the listed above areas :)

rindiCommented:
Maybe notebooks/wireless, although there isn't much open there at the moment, and there isn't much traffic either. The others I haven't really visited, maybe you should ask nobus, I think he does quite a bit in these areas?

rindiCommented:
Correct, and if you need me to do the hardware TA until the CV is back from vacation (I've finished december on sat, should be cleaned by the mod's by this week) I'd be happy to do that.

Annie,
the help page needs to be changed
first the page says we have 35,000 open Q's we have 24,000 open Q's

also
>The list you leave should indicate the topic area and the date the questions are due to be closed. For example, if you leave your posts in the Visual Basic topic area on January 17, your Cleanup list should be titled "Due 21 January 2003, Visual Basic".<
>Your list in the Cleanup topic area should always contain, in the title, the Topic area and the due date. If you post your message on January 15, the list is due on January 19. The title should read something like "Programming cleanup due 19-Jan-04". Please use the DD-MMM-YY format for dates.<

Those are TWO DIFFERENT TITLES
shouldn't they be the same?  if not, Why?

Also

>"Points for" questions

 A small number of the open questions are those left by members and Moderators which give points to an Expert, usually the result of a split. Posting a notice in the question is highly unlikely to get a response from the person who is the intended recipient of the points, so these questions have to be handled differently. Currently, we ask that you keep a list of the URLs and email it to one of the Moderators. They'll take care of alerting the intended recipient of the existence and location of the question.

If you happen across a question that has a comment by a Moderator that says "Email sent", and that comment is more than two weeks old, include it on your list and schedule it for deletion.<
 
two weeks old?  isn't it three weeks??
cf101

any time you want to assign another range feel free!!

The Points for questions is something which no more exists, And it was 2 weeks.

The Hardware areas that can be available are:

# HP Printers
# Scanners
# HP Scanners
# Handhelds/Wireless

So if I see that you are familiar with any of these, I will assign it

Yes and you keep answer questions only in the Lounge... :)
In the last month you had posted comments in about 30 technical questions only.... in most of them onlt questions to determine what's up and then you do not show up again to help fixing the issue...

I really want to see you helping the Askers a bit more and we can talk after this -- it will most probably take a few weeks

It's ok. Basically these are small areas so getting a new list after the old ones are closed is the most often case you should go for. But... if you want to handle any abandoned question on day 22 - I won't oppose it.

compfixer101Commented:
Just a quick update for you Annie  seeing as it has been over a week and no cleanup yet,
I am planning on doing the cleanup this weekend seeing as how i can use QP for cleanup to make it go faster.
also Hp Scanners is cleaned up to date and will be that way for a LONG time seeing as how there aren't in questions in it ;)

however in one of the qestions the first one i did  i sorta still had the revised template the one with the asker's name on it and well i forgot to change the template until after that one and i know you told me not to have the asker name in the post  sorry about that didn't realize it until after it was too late.

Sure I could take the area but could you elaborate a little bit more on that because I don't really understand what your trying to say. I believe you want me to start wednesday to check for any adbandoned ones and clean them up as well as my other ranges. but just want to be sure

Also I am planning on doing cleanup this coming weekend so I can use QP on them which makes it easier for everyone.

as you know already I did cleanup this weekend, I was wondering need any other ranges or areas needing to be cleaned, but i will most likely do them like this weekend or some off time that I have but I would for sure get them done by the end of this year:) Don't feel obiligated to give me another range. But if you need one cleaned up feel free to assign it

cf101

compfixer101Commented:
Just an FYI for you Annie,
I did not get cleanup done this weekend, I ran out of time to do it, I could possibly do it Friday, since that is the next time I am able to get on my pc with QP so I can do cleanup the fast and efficent way, (because I don't have FastCat) Also did you happen to find another area for me to work on?
If you don't respond here by tommorrow I will try to contact you by YIM (since your notifs seem to go to junk ;) )

Annie,
I did some cleanup up today at school (old-fashioned way)
so it is sorta caught up, I pinged alot of questions and also didn't get done with the HP Printers TA yet.
I have been so busy lately that I couldn't get on QP to do any cleanup lately and also I only have to on the one computer at my dad's house which I don't go to everyday, and I am not going to put QP on the oneat my mom's either since I would have to still make or copy my templats from the other PC.

Annie, perhaps it is time to close this question? Most users don't look back far enough to see these old questions.
Also I believe most of the areas have people assigned to them or will have certain users assignd to them.
