The Slackware approach is do a full install and stay with it.

One thing i dont like about Slackware is that it doesnt have its own forum and it relies on LQ so we have to put up with moderator trolls.
Slackware doesn't have it's own forum.
What would happen if slackware has it's own new forum in future not LQ?

Be careful ....
Most of the "senior members", "guru's" in LQ are using slackware.

Is there any possibility to have a new forum of Slackware of it's own?

If there is new forum for slackware in future , will all threads and posts from LQ be merged with the new forum?

It's unlikely that Slackware would ever leave LQ. Pat and his very small team already have far too much to do as it is just building/maintaining the distro.

I am not suggesting having a seperate forum.
I like LQ a lot and appreciate the work most people do on all sections of the site.
But on dedicated Slackware forum trolls like pixellany would eventually be kicked out.

Slackware has AOLS which is a dedicated discussion resource already.

Even if slackware starts an official forum..... LQ will on the top.
Because we had grand grand users of slackers are here in this LQ. Many of them are became Guru's , LQ addict's, Senior members .... If they move to "newer forum" -> they became newbie's ........

so will they use that forum as same as LQ ?? i think "NO"

I left AOLS for the lack or ethics, morality and down right rudeness from the trolls. At least on a moderated forum you don't have to contend with rude, absurd and downright vulgar people.

I don't like the bi-monthly alien probing, but other than that, it's all good.

cheers,
