I’ve been at it for a month now, and every day I learn so many new things. I now acknowledge two truths
- You can never know everything about the tool
- The Experienced users are an invaluable asset whose wisdom and advice can significantly reduce a new users frustration and set up a new user on a positive path
Thus my feature request, that I realise is probably not really realistic…
It would be amazing if there was a directory of Mavens who were willing to make house calls or video calls @ hourly rate. For example, I am assuming that there would be 1 or 2 Chicago based veterans who could make a house call, but if I lived in rural Illinois and there was no local person or due to COVID issues it would be via video call.
Some that ‘are not in it for the money’ may choose a charity, while for others this could be a side gig that doesn’t include Etsy.
I would love it if someone came and checked ‘’belt tension, trammimg, feeds and speeds, etc”
The only way I would think that it would work so that only ‘mavens’ validated the builds, is if the user was ‘vetted’ as a veteran by a user on the forum with a Leader badge
Maybe this once existed before my time in the community, but just thought I’d throw it out there
