Slackware Installation sub forum. Worth keeping?


Within the Distributions/Slackware forum there's a 'Slackware installation' sub-forum. It's very light traffic and I think most folks don't even notice or remember it exists most of the time. Is it perhaps worth combining with the main slackware forum and just having the one place for Slackers to slack in?

May I suggest instead that Slackware forum users report threads to be moved to the subforum?
That would help separate issues and show users there's forum created specifically for installation topics.

You'd still have the issue of people either not noticing it, or forgetting to check it (something I often do, which is what prompted me to make the suggestion). Besides, even if you moved the thread, there'd still be one of those place holder 'Moved' headers taking up space in the main slackware forum, so there really doesn't seem much to be gained.

If you think the sub-forum has value then fair enough. It was only a suggestion.

If I recall correctly, the subforum was created at Patrick's request. I'd have to double check, but either way in a forum as busy as the Slack one, requesting install-related threads be moved is probably the best course of action. Thanks for the feedback.
