First of all, a lot of people joined our community since we released Daryna. It must have been a good release I guess
To all the new minties out there I would like to say: "Welcome among us and to our community. Enjoy Linux Mint and enjoy our great Community. Don't be shy and don't hesitate to get involved. People here are friendly and passionate about Linux so don't hesitate to meet and interact with each others. Apart from the forums, an application called XChat-Gnome is present in your mintMenu which connects you to the chatroom. Stay connected and keep an eye for answers. A lot of people visit the chatroom but not always at the same time. I personally leave my Xchat open and connected most of the time so if you see me in there don't hesitate to say hello."
Now, to the main topic: You probably noticed some changes here in the forums. We're now using the new phpbb3, which brings a lot of new features and a new default design. During the conversion we encountered a few little problems and we're actively trying to solve them. One of these problems was the conversion of special characters (accents for instance). New posts are not affected by this but if you read old posts and happen to see one of these funny characters, let us know and don't forget to tell us:
- The link to the post.
- What the character looks like at the moment.
- What the character should be.
And of course, if there's any other problem you're welcome to tell us as well
To members of the Support Center: We're moving the Support Center into a dedicated part of the forums. If you were a member of the Support Center you should now see a section in the forums called "Commercial Support".
To members of the Team: The mailing list is gone. We're now using a dedicated part of the forums. If you're a member of the team you should now see a section in the forums called "Team-Members Area".
Enjoy the new forums everyone,
