Another theme, perhaps (not to replace the current, but to be able to choose in the bottom left corner)?



yeah and it would be nice if it was black

cause black themes save energy, and in some cases (not here) let you think different at the same time :)

OK...to be honest I am tired of the whole battle here. I just suggested another theme. I never said anything about NM, but you guys seem to keep bringing it up. I love both of the websites, but just because one of them allows you to put ANYTHING in your sig and one doesn't allow offensive material (which makes sense), doesn't mean one is a freer site than the other.

and in some cases (not here) let you think different at the same time


This happens to be a lie. Has anyone mentioned anything about not having free speech?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


Is either one of these sites Congress? No. They can make whatever rules they please.

I am sorry for going off topic but I am entirely fed up with this.

Although another light colored, maybe red theme would be nice.

2 things I'd like to see here @ insanelymac;

1) Rammjet respond to my pms

2) Forums/Threads organized by hardware type for installation/support issues

1 forum for: SOUND, VIDEO, LAN, WIFI, etc.

Then 1 thread inside each forum based on type. Ultimately there are not much more than about 50 types of any of these that can run ANY osx86 installations.

I saw some improvements to organization here lately that were top notch. Nice job.

Also about black themes here @ insanleymac...i think they cost more just because...kinda like mbps...hehe...

I have to agree with the hardware suggestion. Asking questions on this site has become a hit and miss situation. This is mainly because the categorising isn't detailed enough and so finding anything or getting anything answered is difficult.

What we need is something like:
OSx86 Installation: Upgrade, Clean install, Dual Booting, Kernal update, EBIOS Error, Kernal Error, ..
Post-Installation Discussion: - not sure here
Hardware: Audio, Graphics, Ethernet, Wifi, I/O,...

My actual ideas are pretty rubbish but I can't think right now and so just wanted to give a general idea.

I just think if we had more sub categories (but not too many) then it would be easier to find answers as you're now searching in a narrower area and so you're less likely to continue to feed this already bloated forum even more. If you do however need to ask questions, people who actually know are more likely to answer it as they are already in those categories.

By categorising further it also enables us to create more stickies overall without any one category looking overcrowded with stickies (which never looks great). Also we only need useful stickies with useful comments. None of this "great thread" and stupid questions posts because it's really just useless mess and all it does is make the sticky lose value and become meaningless (as no one wanted to go through 6 pages to end up reading just using 3 posts). If you want to ask a question it should be done on a related topic. Stickies ideally should just be for information. And so here the moderators need to be firm.

This site is great but it can be a lot better and I just would like to see it get there.

Maybe I overlooked but I can't find where you can see how much replies you must have written to get a specific rating. I mean the blue squares.

That first sentence is a bit wierd, isn't it?

Thanks

I'd like to see the following:

1) Being able to find all posts by each user, in chronological order (just like in most other forums).
2) Obvious Microsoft shills should be banned. Why should we tolerate them? This is a Mac forum.


so we should bann linux users too ...
c`mon we should shere our little knowledge to bring more and more people from win to x

I would like to see a few things changed:
  • Cleaner topics - now all the topics are full of obsolete posts of people asking silly questions like "when is this going to be complete", "how long", "what about my hackintosh" and so on.
  • Well organized topics - when a topic grows to a fourty pages somebody to take the efforts to summarize the useful information into the first post and remove the other pages so that people won't need to dig hundreds of pages for a simple answer. This will reduce spam as well because people won't need to ask something again and again in one topic just because they can't read it all.
  • Some action towards lazy users. Right now I saw a man in the "Post installation discussion" section asking why his Hackintosh can't sleep. What are those people thinking? That flooding the forum with sh!t is going to help them solve their problems???
  • Better forum structure - there's a lot that can be done about this.
I hope my suggestion is going to be useful.

The problem with most of those, Dellius, is that it depends on the users, and not the admins/moderators. The users cannot do all that, especially the malicious ones. I think the forum structure is fine, by the way.

I'm interested in your opinion on this. Besides the iPhone forum (which I am considering making a seperate forum, instead of a sub-forum), what else could be done to improve it?

I know this may be a bit too much but I would have though we should have a new member class who are knowledgeable on OS X Installation and maybe Post-Installation who hang around those categories helping people out. I know a lot of the community do this already but it may help actually having designated helpers too. Speeds up replies to questions.

And Sabr the iPhone should have it's own category. Especially now that it's come out.

  • Add a "View My Posts" link. (Beside "View New Posts" link.)
  • Maybe also add a "View Unanswered Posts" link also.

I have just read this post.

I never said we should ban Windows users, I said we should ban Microsoft shills, which is very different :)

hello,
tnx for making such a useful forum. i have been lots of forums. i thought i was used to them.but,

this forum is the most confusing forum ever (for a non-english person) tutorials and help requests must be in sections i guess. or there are people asks questions in tut section and posting tuts in question section =P

anyways,

tnx for making this site. really
