Hopefully the new owners will lift the standard on this forum.

Irrelevant talk about MS Surface Tablets and the 99 cent eBay nagger have really let this forum down in recent times.

God forbid people just not read the sections or posts they aren't interested in.  Personally, I come to A.org because there's discussion on topics other than just ones based on machines that stopped being manufactured 20 years ago.

I find it easier to just not read the things that I'm not personally interested in, and I don't see much creative criticism in slamming said topics or posters/threads.  But c'est la vie, I guess.

Then stop reading the "Other Operating Systems" forum, because it's about *gasp* Other Operating Systems!

Nobody is forcing you to read that forum, what's the point of trying to censor it?  Just read the Amiga Forums for goodness sake.  We all live in 2014, some of us want to talk about stuff that is relevant to 2014!

Another vote here for our new insect overlords!

I'm also much more likely to donate now that there won't be any more Mac, Surface, Linux  and PC threads deliberately designed to get people arguing.
Sure, the threads can be there in the Other  OS forum section, but when arguing about Surface Pro machines pushes valid Amiga talk off the front page of the forum, then something's gone wrong somewhere- they should be kept off the front page IMHO.
Plus it looks really bad when you want to show people how alive the Amiga is. and when they go to an Amiga forum, the non-Amiga threads are at the top of the recent threads, and have five times as many posts in as threads which actually have some relevance to the Amiga.

Luckily, I am not a moderator. :)

Perhaps the front page could show only new posts in the Amiga Forums and to get the whole site new posts you have to click "New Posts?"  I'd be ok with that.

No, WE are lucky you are not a moderator.
I'm fine with arguments.
I like topic diversity.
And posts rise to or fall from the front page depending on their popularity.

That's what I meant. :)

But if the most popular threads on an Amiga forum are threads that have zero to do with Amigas.... then why call it an Amiga forum at all?

Hi

Going forward in the future, I am resolved to restore Amiga subjects firmly as the main topics of discussion of this website, so no more off topic subjects in the main forums. Looking at other websites such as English Amiga Board and A1k.org, the emphasis is on good quality discussion about all things Amiga which is very much what this board used to be like 10 years ago.  Amiga.org can become a vibrant, interesting community where users from all flavours of Amiga can call their internet home.

This forum have too many forums and make it laberintic, most of them without any traffic, need to be simplistic with some tutorials for beguinners (preparing CF cards, install file systems, DIY, jne...)

And please, the sentence "no one is forcing too..." become the most popular answer when dont know what to answer.
