Hi,

I really love InsanelyMac,but:

It would be amazing if there would be a sub-forum for Snow Leopard OSx86 experiments,as there's no place for this stuff.
I bet there're many people like me ,who want to try SL on our hackintoshes.

PLZ gimme a Snow Leopard osx86 subforum..... ;)

Regards,

Adam

If its already has been posted please disregard and forgive me but in the OSX database it would be nice to see a category on wireless cards for laptops newcomers wouldnt even give network cards a second look since they would think it has to do with pc

One more thing would be great:

As already mentioned a separate Laptop subforum would be really great.
But it also should contain subforums like Drivers , as for example Graphics Cards are totally different compared to the Desktop GPUs,so it shouldn't be just "support" stuff.
Otherwise it would be useless.

hi

I would like to suggest a sub-forum for Issues during OSX86 installation of mas os x and in which 1 sub forum with issues and 1 sub forum with solutions in which all the solved problems will be put.

in that way no one will ask same question again :)

and also it will be easier for noobs like me to look for solution

It would be nice to have subforums (Leo, Snow Leo, Install, Post-install, etc.) under the forum for portuguese language. Now it's a mess, no subforums, no sticky topics, just a bunch of topics repeated over and over.

I agree. We need some new sections to organize the Portuguese sub-forum.

working live chat. a way for noobs to the forum to ask questions. I want to post a topic to ask about a build but i cannot since i have to contribute to the forum, while this is certainly understandable its kind of a catch 22 since i am new to this i haven't much value to cotribute to the forum.

spell check :D

Active mods so 5 post rule was not needed... (I am not saying all mods here are inactive but a lot are since a lot of junk is in the subforums)

Am I the only one who experienced word processing issues when using the 'Add Reply' option? (such as the 'Delete' key doesn't work, for example)
'Fast Reply' works fine, though.

..and i already thought i couldn't post replies neither a new user..lol.

And there's my point: new users cannot open new threads before having a post count of 5. That is one way to fight spammers. But an incitation to new members to hi-jack and spam existing threads -that's what I understand by replying to threads without having anything to contribute to the topic. I visit this forum several times a week for months now and mostly found a solution for my probs without the need to post. (I managed to install and get running fully functional Mac OS X 10.6.0 on my PC). Now I am stuck with a problem i don't find an answer to and am forced to look after threads in which i can post a correct reply before i can post my question or to spam the forums, if I'm in a hurry.
IMHO a good solution could be to flag posts from new users/members for review; with or w/o need for validation before publishing.
Cheers

PS: I am sure many new users would like to stress this if they only knew where to post....

Who decided that the best way to prevent spam was requiring five posts in other threads? I can see what you were going for but jesus, speaking as someone who works in the internetz industry, most new forum users are joining to ask a question and if they need to post in five existing threads first they're going to get mad and - quite possibly - go somewhere else.

"There is nowhere else, if you hate the site, find another one lol"

This forum is a great resource - and one for which I'm very thankful - but there has got to be a better way to deal with new signups not reading stickies.

New user signs up. If they're the kind of idiot who is going to post "hurr how does i made internet going" they're probably going to just spam five threads so they can post their stupid question anyway, so all you've really done is multiplied the useless posts by six. I'm sure your stupid-thread-count has dropped significantly since you started this policy but it's probably because your average durr can't work out why they're unable to post and have given up.

Edit: I just spent a full five minutes looking for a thread where I could contribute something meaningful and I cannot find a thing. I wanted to make a new thread in the suggestions forum suggesting a new architecture for the forums that might be a bit friendlier to new users without sucking for older users but - of course - I can't actually start a new thread.

I've resisted the temptation to just post "Hmm, interesting question" in four other threads to get my post count up and I'm avoiding double posting here too. Could an admin or a mod please, please, please bump my post count up to five so I can start a thread and ask the question I came here to ask? You should be able to do it from the Manage Members form.

Hey...

I wrote a reply in a thread and it got cut off because of a character-limit?
When I try to put the second part of my post into a new reply it auto-merges the postings
and I am back at my crippled post.. :)

Could you please make the limit per post higher so that a serious reply is possible? ;)


edit: uuh its not the character limit, its me using italic text that cuts off the post??

I have a small suggestion ... I do work in a forum and I think that in order not to bore the people, most of the forums I know put the newest post at first, the oldest at last. Why? Because if not, you have to go through all the old (and mostly not interesting stuff) and then to finally find something you were looking for ...

I was looking for a suitable way to install a ATI5770 in SL, I found the thread and first a looked like between 50 and 100 postings until I found something useful :)

I'm not wish to complain, but I think if you change the order of listing the post will be better ...

Wish a nice day everybody ...

Max.

I've some idea. Not too new though :rolleyes:

Could it be possible to improve/upgrade/rewrite/merge or whatever the search and New Users (users) created topics in a single one?
What I mean is this:
Then a new user (or whatever user) is writing the title for a new topic, the topic field could act like the Spotlight does in OS X. Automatically bringing some most similar/relevant suggestions, so a user could review them and possibly find an answer before creating a new topic. This, if properly implemented, could reduce to some degree, the amount of new topics with questions that already been answered many times (like ...still waiting for root device...).

Sure, that might be very difficult task to accomplish technically. Anyway IMO the idea of Spotlight is a good one (at least how Apple did it) ;)

When the page design came about a year ago, I used to be able to lock in to a background image out of 4 choices. I always prefer the subdued color of grey or charcoal. Now it seems the wood panel background is dominant. How do I permanently lock to the background image of my choice?

I would love to see a change in the code/codebox tags.

1.) code tags supporting colors.
2.) codebox tags getting the same dimensions.

Either one of these will work for me.
