New forum idea

  • Pages:

I would like to propose the creation of a forum titled "Gadgets and Technology". This forum would be for discussing the latest electronic devices, such as cell phones and computer hardware. Our current computing forum would then be renamed to "Tech Desk" or "Help Desk" and would deal with support of computers and other devices.

What do you think? Would you post there?
Yes, maybe.

My friend is quite good when it comes to finding random gadgets, so i might post some of them there and wait for the discussion.

It can depend on what new technology comes in. Sure, I would post in there, if it is something that grabs my attention.

A good idea to put the forum in, Kieran.
I have been waiting for a long time for this. Thank you for
creating this. Sure, I would love to post in it.
Personally I'm not all too interested. I don't really care about any technique other then video games (especially not cell phones). But then again there seem to be enough people here who seem to be interested in such a kind of forum, so why not? It can't hurt.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
How about just renaming Computing to Technology? They're similar enough, and Computing is barely active in the first place. One forum for questions like about HTML and graphics cards can coexist as a forum for discussing things like iPods, cell phones, etc.

Computing is a tad quiet as is and that section of boards is already more crowded than the rest but neither of those things would really be a big deal. So sure, why the heck not.
I made a standalone game once, look for Seabug Stampede on Google Play.
If it was created, I would post there, but I agree with Ultimaximus. Forums with little posts in them don't look professional to me. I suggest renaming the Computing forum to something like "Computing and Gadgets."

I second this. I probably wouldn't post much in there anyways.

Personally, they both sound good to me. Your choice.
I'm in the camp of people that would rather see less forums that cover more topics, for clutter issues. If those forums were more active, it would potentially merit it, but as it is, speaking from my point of view, I would rather compress that forum into the existing one to potentially help spur it into some more life.
I'd say maybe rename "Computing" to "Computing and Technology"Free counters!
What about merging Computing and Programming? Both of those forums are mostly concerned with computer-related stuff, they fit together slightly better than Computers and Electronics/Technology in general, in my opinion. But you did mention computer hardware as part of your proposed forum, so I don't really know what to think. I don't really mind.
May we meet again outside the battlefield.
Computing and programming are something completely different. They can't get merged.
My blog. I could post stuff now and then

I quite like this idea, to know of everything that occurs on technology in the world is pretty cool, I personally support the idea of creating this forum.

So what if they're completely different, it's still possible to merge it into a forum called Computing & Programming.

I'm in support for just one forum for discussing hardware and software stuff instead of a seperate forum for each =/.

That would just clutter up the forum. It is like mixing Talk with Advanced SMW Hacking.

The only thing is that Computing & Programming go together a little better than Talk and Advanced SMW Hacking...

Other than that I agree with Ersanio.
Your layout has been removed.
And it barely clutters in the first place! Talk and Advanced are active, but not Computing and Programming. Hell, Programming doesn't even have more than 1 page of threads (with 50 threads a page)!
