    Hi, it seems like the same types of question are appearing in the General Discussions, Networking and Open Forum as in the model specific ones, so do we need so many different ones? A good example is the Networking forum where the eight latest threads all concern the WRT54G/GS :?

    Personally I'd like to see people post in the right forums! :roll:

    I think the current categorization is fine, but perhaps we could improve on the description below each forum to be more detailed/descriptive to help the confused decide on which is the right forum to visit, but there are those who simple aren't paying attention - it is a common phenomenon amongst chatrooms/forums/newsgroups, and we are not immuned. If necessary, I'm sure the Moderators can always move the discussions to the appropriate forums.

    True, but this doesn't seem to happen :?

    And yes further clarification as to what each forum is for would be a good idea :)

    are you volunteering your hard work m8? want a job as a mod?

    am am up to my eyes in php code and stuff at the moment. from spending 7 weeks without a car, forking out £1000 to get it fixed just before xmas, moving my whole website to a new host, then upgrading this old php-nuke and having a normal day job, i just dont have time to mod the "off topic" threads in certain forums.

    if you feel upto it please left me know

    Sounds more like you are volunteering me! :wink:

    How difficult is it to move off topic posts around the place?

    Its really not that hard once you manage to get to the site daily.... Just like Toxic, I've been up to my eyeballs in work, and am finally getting a chance to get that post count back up :wink:

    If anyone is interested in helping out as a mod, hit up either Toxic or myself by PM and we'll see what we can do.

    But for now, I'll try to keep a better eye out, I've already moved a couple today, and for everyone else, you can always use the 'Report Post' button:[​IMG] to alert a mod to move an innapropriate posting.
