It's a nice idea, but if certain posts get ignored, it may simply be due to the fact that either the people who do see the post don't happen to know how to solve the reported problem, or that the people who do know how to solve the problem don't happen to see the post. Regardless of how many forums or subforums there are, those 2 conditions will still exist though, so in the end I'm not sure that creating new forums will improve things.
In my view, the 2 best approaches towards minimizing the chances that a post gets ignored is to bump it after, say, at least 24 or 48 hours without getting a response, or better yet, to use LQ's Search function. Most common installation issues have already been extensively posted as well as solved, and it's only a matter of doing a little digging to find an existing post that covers the exact same issue, along with an appropriate solution. Like you, this is just my 2 cents -- J.W.
Originally posted by Pauli Last I checked, when I first logged in, there were over 1000 new threads. Tell me, you have the time to go through all of them?
that all depends when you were last on here .. i know its been about 5 hours since this present post since i was here and there is only 257 new ones as opposed to your 1000, but of course i wouldn't look through all 257, and i think what was being referred to was when coming to the site, clicking the "view threads with 0 replies" ...
i know thats what i personally do, and then i check my personal replied to threads and see if anyone replied to what i said, and respond back when need be ...
I have something called limited time. Plus I have much better things than reading LQ, such as reading Kant, Hobbes and other miscellanious wonders. LQ is nice, but it is not what you would call classic literature
