    Hey,
    I visited the forums after a week of working and noticed the networking section has been moved, I don't kno about you people but I think it belongs in the hardware section like before. Im hoping it will be moved back :)

    I dont see why it should be under Hardware... Networking involves more than just a router or some cabling. There is configuring and topology and should have its own section.

    Well, yes it isn't just hardware involved in this. BUT, what is networking?!
    I don't think it should be placed with software either since it's not a software.

    In fact, I think we should have a separate section for Networking

    Networking
    >Hardware Issues
    >Software Issues
    >Security

    If not under hardware then most definately not under software :eek:

    I couldn't agree more networking is its own beast, and as not to configure the issue it should be sub-catergorized as Ming suggested re:

    >Hardware Issues
    >Software Issues or Configuration Issues
    >Security

    There aren't enough posts to have 3-6 subcategories

    Are you saying it's useless to have 3 subcats?
    I'm sure it'll be much more organised that way, and easier for members to locate information that they need to find.

    That can't be done (the mass moving thing, I just got a hug :p ).
    The thing is it can only be done via admin CP and there is no way in hell we'll get to access that ;)
    Anyway, I think that there are enough Smods to take care of the mass move thing.

    Actually giving networking it's own section might be a good idea.
    I am on the road at the moment but will take a look at it when I get home.

    Networking is of course a matter of both configuring both software and hardware, so I was stuck as to where to put it.

    I didn't consider making its own section.
