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
General Announcements
Suggestions & Feedback
New Features

Desktop (Gnome, KDE, XFCE, Other)
Network - Wired
Network - Wifi
Tips & Tricks
Other (what doesn't fit above)


Next Release

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).

Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking about something like that for a while and I'm glad you brought that up.

I agree with vonskippy. A more logical organisation would help and be needed when more people come on board

My 0.02C worth.

It's really time to tidy up the forum. When a newbie comes the first time to this forum I guess he thinks twice if this is the right one for him.

Psycho, can you be more precise?

imho it schould be more modular so you can find what you are searching for faster. Look at these forums for example:

Simply more categorys would be great. For example not just "Suggestions & Feedback" but subcategorys like Suggestions & Feedback on Forums, Suggestions and Feedback on Hardwaresupport and so on.
