As far as I know, Jeremy approached Gentoo and asked them for a Gentoo forum here but shortly afterwards, they came out with their own forum on their site. Go figure...

The forums at gentoo.org is extremely important to gentoo as a distro. as the way portage and gentoo in general works, those forums provide far more than standard user help.

obviously.... please don't just waste posts.... it makes moderators think you're ..."daft"....

There will not be a Gentoo forum here unless Gentoo say "Yes please start a forum, and we will work to spend time at LQ.org answering threads where we can", which is unlikely to happen.

This is a questioned asked and answered many times about how we have specific Distribution forums here.

Jeremy has stated from the beginning that in order for us to have a specific distro forum, it will be official in some way or another. All of our forums here have either a Representative from the distro helping out or its the actual official forum for that distribution that was given a "OK" from the distribution.

Everyone must respect that of this site and of Jeremy's wishes. If you keep insisting upon it or keep at it, its only not going to get you anywhere but its going to start becoming annoying.

If you really want to see a Distro forum here that isn't already here, I'd suggest you contact that distro and tell them why you want a forum here as well. Were not asking you to do this but Jeremy has already contacted just about all the main distro's but only to get turned down from many. If members also contact them to attempt to get the distro to change their mind, it only helps in that attempt to get it here for you members wanting it. Maybe the more members that write or contact will only make the Distro in question realize that creating a forum here is a good idea.

Regards.
