When I was reading your original post your suggestion seemed like a good idea... then I gave it some thought and now I'm not so sure...

Maybe. But do most people only look around in one area? When I come to the Mint forums, I go directly to "view active topics." Threads from every sub-forum appear in there, so if there was something from a LTS section, it wouldn't be missed.
Or, to turn it around, it's like saying there shouldn't be a KDE section because you might miss out attracting the attention of experienced former Mint KDE users who have moved on to LMDE.

When I was reading your last post and saw you mention "view active topics" I thought 2 things - 1) there is a "view active topics" button here??? (I never looked or noticed it before today) and 2) Why would you do that??? If "active topics" are active topics from all sub-forums, the display would amount to info-glut on a widely varied collection of topics and, for me, not be very useful... I guess what I am saying here is that the way that I use these forums is very different that the way you do... I don't think that either of us is right or wrong, we're just different... for folks that use these forums like I do, creating a LTS sub-forum creates another sub-forum to read... for folks that use the forums the way you do, they might not notice the new sub-forum... but if you title your post accurately (when looking for help), the folks that would help and use the forums the way that you do will find them no matter where you post them...
I agree!MALsPa wrote:...There are people who only use LTS versions just like there are people who only use LMDE or KDE or Xfce versions -- why not accommodate the LTS users, too?
It doesn't really matter, but I think it would be nice to have.
