The forums seem to be continually growing to accommodate new devices, roms, etc., and many people have complained that the length of the main forums page is just too long. So I thought it was time to make some big changes.

I've created a copy of the OE Forums and started moving things around a bit, and got some feedback from our admins. Now it's time to get feedback from the community.

Please visit the OE Test Forums and check it out. Please feel free to post new topics or otherwise test the forums. JUST BE AWARE THAT THE TEST FORUMS DATA IS ON A SEPERATE DB FROM THE OE FORUMS, AND THAT ANY POSTS CREATED IN THE TEST FORUMS WILL BE DELETED AFTER TESTING. WE WILL NOT MERGE ANY DATA FROM THE TEST FORUMS TO THE OE FORUMS.

As usual, please be very candid with your feedback. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Thanks,

offroadgeek

Hi all,

today I found out the forums have been shuffled around a bit. So far I'm not sure whether or not I like it but the

General Forums > OS Support and Discussion

group should surely be renamed to

General Forums > Desktop OS Support and Discussion

or, even better,

General Forums > Desktop Operating Systems Issues

At present, one doesn't even know whether OS means "operating system" or "open source" until one looks at individual forum names. That's a usability no-no.

Just my $0.02.
