    Here's an idea I had about how to add to the site:

    There's been a number of threads that have really helped me and I'm sure many others such as the Pop-up-killer threads and for me personally the question I asked about HDD speeds. The only problem is that after a short while they disappear from view until someone asks the same question again...

    In the case of special threads like the pop-up-killer one could they be promoted to somthing like a 'reference' thread that could be easily accessible from the forums.

    e.g. FORUMS>Applications>Reference Threads>Pop Up Killers

    This way the discussion could be kept live but folks wouldn't need to keep asking the same questions...

    Eventually a definitve answer may arise from the thread and this could become a tweak or somthing???

    Seems like a good idea. However it's up to Electronic Punk.

    yeah.. thats an excellent idea.. would keep things much more organized...
    Would mean us having to filter through the thousands of posts and indexing each one sticking an apropiate topic to each one... be another job for the idle mods :D

    but seriously would take a lot of work...
    will discuss it in next staff meeting :)
