Need some thoughts or opinions on this subject....

I got to thinking after answering Kimberly's question on whether or not one would answer a question if they already answered one similar 2 weeks before. I noticed that has been happening more often here lately. Well maybe the powers that be on CafeMom can go thru most commonly asked questions and put a link or whatever u call it where a new member can go to to see if their question has already been asked. Then the powers that be on CM can hand pick the best answers and lay them out on that particular question. For example, "what can I do about my 16-26 month old baby who throws things at me, bites, throws temper tantums ect" u get what I mean?? So maybe we can get more newer questions asked and answered and learn more and expand our MINDS!!!!!!! lol

So what ya'll think???

To the mighty powers that be on CM owners or operators...what do ya'll think??

  • If someone types in a question in the search engine, that information all pops up.  Groups that have the same discussions, questions that were posted before.  Maybe when we first join there should be a message in our inbox telling us that.  I get tired of seeing the same questions also, lol.

  • At this point I would guess that ALL questions have been asked and answers countless number of times. This suggestion might be the end of Answers because there would be no new questions. JMHO

  • i don't think it would matter. People are still going to ask questions even if it's been talked about 100 times. People like their own personal feedback, not feedback that was meant for someone else.

  • I wouldn't have known about it if someone hadn't of told me.  It's hard to figure out how to navigate here, I think Cafemom should let that information be known in a message or something, lol.

  • answers could/do change depending on my mood of the day (awful to admit but true!)

  • but if common question is just listed with answers, possible the new person with the best answer yet would not be heard

  • Not fair to Cafemom employees after reading Houston's answer to take on not so necessary work. Hands would get tired after all the pregnancy questions.
