    I would like to propose a quasi official rescue squad for Droid Forums. I see so many questions asked over and over and have walked a few people through issues, I think we need a dedicated group that is here for the little guy. Similar to how the ROMs section is have a list of people and times they are availible to assist. I think this could be very useful and help teach some of the newer droiders how to root and mod the right way.

    What do you guys think?

    I've been thinking about this suggestion for a while. Have to see how this thread goes and what the moderators and admins say.

    I trend to help as much as I can anyway...I'm starting a new job that will cause me to be kinda "on-call" so idk how good of an idea of a schedule I can give for when I'll be free, but I'd be more than happy to help out whenever i can!

    Was thinking we could have people that have like specialties, like theme issues, sprecovery, rooting, and general phone issues. Not everyone has to have a scheduled time to assist but like for me I know I am available to help mon-fri 3pm-10pm EST. I just think having some go to guys could be a help to the community as a whole.

    That's is true....I was going for a more personal touch. I've enjoyed helping people on here and just though it could help organize information and give some people a sense of direction with questions. Don't you like knowing there's someone there to help? Sometimes I see these frantic posts of "I bricked my phone!" With this setup you would see someone is there to help right then not maybe someone might answer. I've seen a few posts of people having to bump their own post to get an answer. This could alleviate some of these and make people feel even more welcome here.

    I have pushed this up the food chain here @ DF, I will let you know how it turns out, or you will see a change in the forums to reflect this idea.

    I personally Like this Idea !!!! :icon_ devil:
