Forum categories ... your say

Post#1 by brokenman » 28 Dec 2010, 07:29

Suggestions are welcome for which categories you think would be useful in this forum. Perhaps a non english section or something similar?

Hello,


Forum:

-HOWTO
-Section Network (Wifi,....)
-Section Language :)

The proposition of fanthom !

a) News, Announcements
b) "read before you ask" - sticky thread with all rules which does apply on this forum
c) FAQ, HOWTOS, usefull scripts - there are few already on the forum :)
d) "Recent Threads" - forum without categories like it is now - can be useful for tracking new posts
e) Modules - every published module should have a thread here, module requests
f) Slax bugs
g) Other languages - for people who doesn't speak english ;]

I suggest a linux-live development section:

- linux-live scripts (liblinuxlive, linuxrc, cleanup)
- busybox
- initrd

as a point where developers of different distributions can meet and work together to "try take over the world" :twisted:

I suggest a development section separate from the user section. If we are looking a this forum as a resource for pre-releases this might be useful.

How do you install slax-remix?

Which filesystem will you use? advantages/disadvantages to each filesystem? Will you use lilo or syslinux to boot your usb stick?

How can one make modules? Who will be in charge of approving modules if there is such a need? Will users be able to post modules/code to share here?
Bugs section, Users Howto's, FAQ section is good, General Chatter, OT(Off Topic) Section if allowed? New kernel?, General purpose scripts? New programs or code releases?

These are just a few ideas and suggestions. I hope not to have too many suggestions :(

I think installation and booting could be a good section (I also bet it will soon be well populated according to the other forum experience).
Also, some languages should be added by default in the International Users section.
