Hello, I'm new to Minty, and so far very smooth.
Community forums are a great tool - and I commend you on having what seems to be a good and active one. But (you just knew that was coming didn't ya?) it's not organized very well. You have several topic sections - all chock full of general support questions.
Perhaps a better layout would be:
Announcements & Suggestions
Suggestions & Feedback
Desktop (Gnome, KDE, XFCE, Other)
Network - Wired
Network - Wifi
Tips & Tricks
Other (what doesn't fit above)
Rumors and Rants
Random (Any topic but Minty ones)
**basically move the "Next Release" catagory here and rename it when that one becomes stable, and the next development cycle starts
Just a thought (it's always better to reorganize sooner then later).
