    Default need new forum

    i really think we need a new forum hierarchy that is focused on providing aid to
    those folks who are pretty happy with most of the "under the hood" and/or "geeky
    stuff"....and, have "moved on" to the things that are more important to them, like:

    - the size, shape, color depth, clarity and design of icons

    - variety and beauty of desktop backgrounds/splash screens/etc

    - range of sounds to accompany windows opening/closing, etc

    - increasingly entertaining desktop effects of Compiz

    - expanding the stable of glitzy screen savers

    - cohesive applications of infinitely variable themes

    - providing one click instant gratifications (without time investment)

    - pursuit of the ultimate "eye candy"

    - etc etc etc etc

    trouble is, as i wander around looking for folks to help with that mundane stuff
    (like: HELP!!! Installed crappy 11.0 and now can't find mom's important
    documents.) i'm often bumping into these more important things and think it
    _might_ be better to construct a special place for those with such needs..

    naming it correctly to facilitate the herding-in step, might a little difficult,
    perhaps:

    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!

    with some finely tuned sub-fora, like:

    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.backgrounds
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.compiz
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.community
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.community.chit
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.community.chit-chat
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.community.chit-chat.suggestions
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.etc
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.fonts
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.general
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.general.no_support
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.off-topic
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.orgasmic_level_gratification
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.screen_savers
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.system_sounds
    opensuse.org.help.eyeCANDY!.themes


    i guess a better alternative top-level name might be:

    opensuse.org.help.exWinExperts.*
    opensuse.org.help.e-generation.*
    opensuse.org.help.E_generation.*
    opensuse.org.help.eGen.*
    opensuse.org.help.iGen.*


    see, now we need ANOTHER forum:

    opensuse.org.feedback.forums.comments-suggestions.forum_naming_conventions

    this is a REAL suggestion, it only appears grumpy if _you_ find it unhelpful to
    segregate technical help forums from visual/aural stimulation forums..therefore,
    ymmv..

    :sigh:

    The latter.
    Why don't you just filter out messages based on subject or content if you don't want to read them?

    Personally I like

    opensuse.org.help.tweaksandgrins

    although I have to say orgasmic_level_gratification sounds
    interesting.
