Just an observation...
When bringing up the LM forum, the first Items I see, under Important Notices
is re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released (Rules & Notices topic) and Re: Linux Mint 9 Released (Releases and Announcements). That is because the releases were posted as an announcement and don't appear at the board index level.
A person viewing the forum for the first time might think that those releases are the current ones. It could probably be corrected by posting announcements as normal sticky thread topic.
OK... not that important, but it bugs me!
