To clarify, when meerpirat say that people on the EA Forum are volunteers, they don’t (I assume) mean that there is some dedicated team of volunteers whose job it is to answer Forum questions.
Rather, they simply mean that most users of the Forum are not paid to use it.
(I’m not sure if you were in fact confused about this, but I thought your comment above potentially implied that you were, so I wanted to make this clear just in case.)
Thank you for this clarification. I certainly thought that there are dedicated volnuteers.
