Or we could make some suggestions as to how we would like to see it. Nothing like folks bitching and not offering suggestions. /Guilty


Personally I would think instead of making more forums you should consider combining/renaming.
Instead of making TABLETS its own category which I bet you will see very little traffic as it is, why not combine it with COMPUTERS?

COMPUTER & TABLETS makes a LOT of sense.
Maybe:
CELLPHONES & CONSUMER ELECTRONICS

Also I think SPACE should be renamed as someone mentioned to ASTRONOMY.

Default I Agree

I agree. The least work intensive fix is easy as the sub forums are already in place. Add one line break after the forum title; rewrite titles, and move one thread. Done. It should not take more than one hour for one person to make a cut and paste change. But I could be wrong as I never worked with C-D line code.
Science and Technology
...Science and Space
...Technology and Electronics

I disagree. Tablets do need a thread because of [1] the huge popularity and [2] it is projected to replace the personal desktop computer. I hope not.

Tablets do NOT get enough traffic to warrant its own section. "Consumer Electronics"... isn't that what a tablet is??
Now we have SPACE? I don't think that should be separate.
Or maybe SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY need broken up?

I love this website.
I wonder why the owners or moderators never, oh I don't know: ASK US HOW WE LIKE IT???
Just a thought.

Don't be Facebook guys and assume you know what we want. MM'kay? haha

Anyone agree? Disagree?
Discuss.

There's zero chance of that happening any time soon

Not tomorrow, maybe, but tablets are already outselling desktops. I'm curious to see how long any tablet (not a book reader) is in service before it comes a doorstop? Most desktops are easy enough to repair. Not so the tablet.

If we keep the topic going maybe Admin will agree to correct the forum fragmentation. Space has no place in technology; it is not electronics.

I doubt it strongly, just where did you get that fantasy from?

You mean the C-D Tablet forum?
  • The one with 157 posts?
  • The one that has been active for 6 days and hasn't had a new post in it since it was created?

That Tablet forum???


PS Admin: The STEVE jobs thread doesn't really belong there, neither does the first post there about the web app...
In fact there are quite a few that don't belong...

Well we are one week into the "changes" and I'm officially on the side of it being a screwed up mess. I keep finding threads moved to other forums that don't fit.

We are going to see the demise of posting in this forum. Frustration will set in and those who post some of the best threads we read are going to stop.

I just think it would be really nice if the end users were consulted beforehand.
Like I said earlier: don't Facebook us. You want to build a rabid fan base? Makes us feel like we are really part of the community by incorporating our thoughts and ideas into future modifications made.
Give us a little credit that we might know what would work since, y'know, we hang out here every day.

That's how I would run C-D Forums anyway.
