That all sounds good, especially the article and video part. I am just excited I can leave it landscape and not have to turn it just to read EE.

A User's Thoughts on Managing Payments for Live Expert Support

Last night I had my first experience using the Live Expert support service, and wanted to share some thoughts and an idea or two.
The Expert I chose was one who already knew something about my project, so we already knew pretty much what to expect from each other. That's important to me because I've had some unfortunate business relationships which went sour because of misaligned expectations.
I scheduled the WebEx event using my company's account -- not sure if EE has something the Experts can use for this, but it was the least I could do. After about ten minutes of digging in, the Expert asked me to choose an amount of time (15/30/60 minutes) but I didn't like the idea of paying in advance and not knowing how much time we would need, so we just continued working with the idea that I would pay at the end of our session. We worked for about 80 minutes, at which point we decided that the problem had been solved, so we ended our session. Unfortunately, that completely removed my ability to issue a payment. So, I scheduled another Live session for the next day just so I could pay him.
I was very surprised to hear from the Expert that a large percentage of customers actually don't pay at all! So, I came up with an idea that I would like for EE to consider.

1. Only allow customers access to Live Support if a valid credit card is on file, and they have clicked "I Agree" on the fine print.
2. When a Live session …

Hello,
I have submitted Selenium and Eclipse questions and they were never answered.  
There are many topics that are "Proposed."
My assumption is that EE does not have Experts for these topics.  Is my assumption correct?

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

If you’re reading this article right now… ahhhh!! Thank-you so much! You must understand this is my first ever article and I have no idea if what you’re about to read is even good enough to grace your eyes. However, that’s exactly why I wrote it. Do continue to find out what I mean à attention grabber. I learned to use those as I was researching how to write one of these things. Did it work?


As a struggling college student, you’re instructed to apply to as many scholarships as you can. So, when I came across the Expert Exchange scholarship, I skimmed over the requirements and then bookmarked it for a later date. That later date came, and it was then that I realized that the required topic is technology. Being technologically challenged, I panicked, but then a light bulb went off. Not knowing how to navigate such a valuable piece of technology like the Expert Exchange website is a tech problem! A problem for starters, but a problem nonetheless. So if you want to learn how you can enter a technology based scholarship knowing little to nothing about technology, read on! If you don’t want to, please still read on… I need as many views as I can get. 


Finding a topic

“Students will submit an original piece of work via an article or video on a technology topic of their choosing…” is the literal first line of the Expert Exchange application guidelines. How I missed it, I’m unsure; however, when I did read it my first question was “What the cuss is a technology topic?” So I googled.

Did this help any of you, because it sure didn’t help me. 


So I decided to ignore the dictionary, get less specific and use, what my English professor would call, a less reputable reference - Quora! 


Okay so “the creation and use of technical means” and “the application of this knowledge for practical ends”… we can work with that. Basically, your topic must be on ANYTHING that has to do with technology. This doesn’t have to be Coding 101. Your topic can be as simple as how to use downloaded Word fonts, creating your Gmail vacation responder, commonalities in phishing scams or, what we all really want to know, how to know when you’ve been screenshot.  This is the 21st century, you cannot go 24 hours without encountering some form of technology, draw inspiration from that!


Describing a Problem

The next requirement of the scholarship is to make your article or video helpful. In order to do that you must identify and describe a problem with your topic. If you haven’t decided on a solid topic, this may be a good first step. Think about a recent frustration you’ve had with technology, or something your friends have problems with. For instance, none of my professors know how to work the classroom handheld response system or “clickers”. A troubleshooting article or how-to video would be great for them. 


Once you’ve decided what your technology topic will be, pull from real world experience to find problems. If you haven’t had any personally, research your topic of choice to find out the issues people are having with this technology. Identify and chose a problem that you know the solution to, or can research how to solve. 


Solving the problem

Now that you have chosen your problem, you must prepare to describe its solution effectively. You may want to start with what to do to avoid your issue altogether. If a step-by-step on how not avoid said problem is not your style, inform the viewer/reader what not to do once it is encountered. Additionally, if your problem is inevitable, provide links to troubleshooting websites and/or customer service numbers. – The solution part of the process should be fool-proof! 


Creating your article or video

Once you have an outline of the information you want to include in your article or video, you can begin creating it. Expert Exchange makes it easy and provides excellent reference guides for creating articles and videos à hyperlinks because you didn’t really expect me to show you how to use any of this space magic did you?! 


Good luck with your entries!

Hello  ee and users

i'm aware EE needs income, and uses advertisements for that.
however, since i'm considered an "expert" - whatever that means, i think i have a right to an EXPERT vieuw also.
imo this means that i get info on my display - NOT adverts
you also see lost space between questions, and each embedded in a nice comment box
can i not have the old style "foldingpaper" as used around 2000-2005 ?   that was expert vieuw for me !
as an example i post a screenshot of an EE page on my 19" monitor

Hello,

Is there is a way to link to a specific post in an EE thread?

I can see that URLs for EE threads have five parts:

1. The Experts Exchange web address (https://www.experts-exchange.com/)
2. The word "questions" (questions/)
3. An 8-digit thread ID (12345678/)
4. The thread title separated by hyphens (This-is-the-title)
5. And the extension (.html)

However, it seems like in the past I've seen an additional part (like a sub-extension) added to the end of the URL which directs you to a specific post in the thread. Is that correct? And if so, what convention is used or how do you determine the sub-extension?

And I guess I should add a "sub-question" which is: What are the correct terms for the parts mentioned above?

Thanks

New to this sharing updates thing, so I have no idea who views these? I have created some Outlook troubleshooting training videos for technicians. I'm considering putting them up here on EE for techs to purchase. When you upload courses, it takes a lot of time. I have 2 other courses up and it was a bit of work. If you read this and think it's of value, please like this post or comment "yes" so I can get a feel for the interest. Thanks!

          Ha, oddly enough those almost inspired me to open a feature request to 'unfollow' people as it seemed super spammy to me (just posting links with no context).  I like the relevant tech posts, but I'm reluctant to have my EE front page turn into a 'Facebook stream'.  Otherwise I could just copy and paste in the whole front page of slashdot for all of EE to read.
