on a request of an user I have now set the following setting for all the RSS feeds on OESF:

RSS Export Includes First Post of Topic -> NO

This should mean that, from now on, on RSS all the posts from each thread are sent, not only the first one of each thread (unless I have wrongly understood what does that option do).

I have opened a poll to understand if this change is welcome or not, I'd ask to everyone who's using the RSS feeds to vote here.

following the announcement of the Astro Slide I have now opened a new forum for this device, with 4 new subforums: Hardware, Android, Linux and General Discussion. Note that I have not added a Sailfish OS one, as currently it is not known if it will be released for this device too. RSS feeds have been added for each of these new subforums.

The successor of the Cosmo Communicator and the third device by Planet Computers has been announced: called Astro Slide 5G Transformer, it's a new take on the clamshell design and can be already funded from its new Indiegogo page:

Compared to the Cosmo, this new device has a number of improvements over its predecessor, including:

- 5G support
- Based on the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chipset
- New RockUp slider design, no need for a secondary display anymore
- WiFi 6 integrated
- New 48 MP camera
- Wireless charging
- Volume up-down button
- Shipped with Android 10

An Earlybird perk has now been opened, with a discounted price of €491 ($543/£438) instead of €819 ($906/£731). 500 units are available and 291 have already been claimed at the time of writing.
As of now, Sailfish OS support has not been yet announced.

You can now post all your thoughts and news about the Astro Slide in our newly opened support forum.

we have now posted and pinned the rules for the For Sale / Wanted subforum: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=36183

Please read it carefully before posting any related post in that section.

this subforum is dedicated to everyone who'd like to sell or wants a Cosmo/Gemini/GPD device/Zaurus or similar devices. Note that these posts are to be intended as personal listings; using this subforum for commercial trading is prohibited.

All sales posts must contain the following information:
- The topic of your post must start with [SALE] followed by a brief description of what you are selling
- The exact item(s) you are selling including model number, age of the item (if used), condition of the item
- The country you live in
- The country / countries you are willing to ship it to
- The price of the item in the countries you wish to sell it to. If you do not mind selling it to any country post the prices for the items in USD, EUR or GPB
- What payment methods you accept
- At least one form of contact information such as a telephone number, an email address or an Instant Messenger account.

Note: you are allowed to post a link to an external auction site, such as eBay. In this case, only the [For Sale] and description in the title, plus a link to the item are required.

All wanted posts must contain the following information:
- The topic of your post must start with [WANTED] followed by a brief description of what you need
- The exact item(s) you want including model number(s)
- The country you live in
- What your preferred payment methods are
- A brief statement on why you want the item (for example, spares etc)

If a post will miss one or more of the above information, the post will be hidden and a PM will be sent to the author, requiring to add the missing information. If the post won't be updated within 7 days, it will be deleted.

You are allowed to reply to your own post (commonly known as bumping); bumping is required if one or more of the information have been changed in the meanwhile (e.g. the selling price has been lowered, or an item has been added to the lot).

No 'thread crapping' is allowed or tolerated. Negative comments and opinions posted about the items listed for sale will be removed by moderators and person posting such comments will be warned. If this happens repeatedly, person posting will be removed from OESF.

Happy transactions, and remember that neither OESF nor anyone directly affiliated with it takes responsibility for any item(s) posted here, the responsibility lies directly with the post creator.
