    Default New Software, New Ideas.

    Going through the suggestion box it makes me happy to realize that quite a few of these can and have been addressed by the new forum software.

    With that being said: We still need some new stuff.

    I need a list of things that need to be done, like breaking of the forums into sub forums, hardware/software specific forums.

    Pretty much anything that should be done to keep this place from getting stagnant, so please fire away.

    Default software

    Hello

    i feel if you have a forum for each sub software available people who own that software or are considering buying it will graduate to that forum to get help or offer help ...... at the moment these forums are pretty sepcialist in hardware but people need a lot of help on software too!
    Likely problem is theres so mnay softwares available yo could end up with a huge list of forums to do it properly ...and a few will likely get very few posts which never looks good to visitors .
    Appearance is important and thats another issue with breaking the fourms up in to subcatogories a lot , a generic software forum will look busy , a sub catagory forum will attrract a lot of attention to certain sections and make other sections look quiet .neevr a good thing .
    Personally though i would like to see individual forums for indivdual softwares , partly as an easy reference to whats actually available.
    Ideally with a sticky at top if each sub forum on softwares about where its available , typiv#cal prices and a review of its pros and cons.
    Same for DACS of course but they are quiet closely related .

    Hey Spec!
    How about on the main page instead of having "last post" have "new posts" (from the last couple of days or so..) -(don't know if that can be done or not) --so we can all see at a glance what's been put up recently.

    Have a good one

    The New Post link at the top of the page gives you the new posts, there is a click here link for the past 24 hours.

    Hey Jim
    Well I was kinda thinking about having them so that you could see under which category, so you dont have to go thru ALL the categories..to see all the new posts..
    --if that makes any sense--

    How bout a "report post" button so we can point out spammers to you, instead of you having to look around for them, if looking for them is a hassle to you. cruch and I can have contests to see who gets to the most first...
