Hello all.
Today was a good day for me, until i came on here and saw some major trollin goin on. and not the good kind. Im no mod, but I want to try and keep this place (Droid X section) as clean as possible. I'll say this as polite as possible, but lets face it. when it comes to this stuff, I really cant stand it. If this goes post against rules, then mods delete it, but i doubt it is.
SO...
This isnt directly aimed at one person or dev, but Im trying to start a trend here.
Lets keep the requests for specific features of roms, or issues, within the given rom's thread. If you 'want' something, ask politely in those threads. I speak for myself in saying that it would be a shame to see 1000 threads of rom requests. I get it, you want your geebees and your H Dees, but really? You are so attention centered that you need your own thread?
For example, CVPCS has worked his ASS off for months to get Cyanogenmod working on the Droid X. MONTHS!!! Not even 24 hours have gone by since the release and already we have these silly requests??? come on people. If you cant donate, at least show some respect and courtesy and thank him. Let him be. He just did a very hard task. When you come home from work, do you want your wife to yell at you about how you forgot to pick up milk? NO! same thing applies here. I hope others feel the same way about this as me. And that was just one example, because this forum is still growing. Lets not make this an XDA, mmmkay?

Definitely agree with you bro. I've already seen where a few users have posted their questions in the wrong threads, multiple sections, because no one answered their question in five seconds... Lil bit annoying..

People post other threads because at 40+ pages, many things get lost. I understand the REQ threads dont make sense, but any other CM topic doesn't necessarily have to be in the same thread. BTW its ironic you opened another thread to complain ala XDA. Kinda funny I think bro

What I find annoying or demeaning is when people post things like " you should look at my post on page 3, etc, " where they are posting how they think they could fix an issue, but I think the developer is ALOT smarter than them. Its just another way that people want to pretend they are smarter or suggest the developer contact a different developer from a totally different type of device, it just rubs me wrong and would offend me.

i agree with this and thats why i wasnt going to go ahead and move the thread the OP was talking about. Unless the OP of that thread said he wanted it moved. Which he did eventually...and thats what i told him before i moved it....was that the CM7 thread got 40 pages+ in one day. Imagine in one week...most of the time people will get anwsers faster if they post a seperate topic when its something that big #justsayin

I think request threads are a good thing to be honest. It probably doesn't make much sense based on how this forum is setup, but if each developer had their own section, then request threads would be great. For example, if under DX -> Development, there was a "CM4DX" sub-forum, having a request thread would be very useful for discussion, since it is located in the correct section. With just a broad development sub-forum, it could be hard to see which request is paired with which ROM/mod.

TL;DR: Request threads are useful if you know what they belong to.

I like this idea it has worked well in the past makes things less cluttered. Admins ideas?

In reponse to teh_g. As of right now we dont have a use for each dev to have their own subforum. unless they have multiple roms and also maintain the subforum as well. Which as of right now they all have one rom.And also at this moment, they have the time to maintain their own subforum, because of all the work they are currently doing. But if the demand from the community rises to a point where its needed. We will go that route. In the mean time. If you or anyone posts something about a certain rom just put "[CM7],[LIBERTY], ect." And people will know rom you are talking about. As the community here grows. We will continue to expand as needed.

I love organizing things. People should be able to have side discussions outside of the main release thread. If people are going to compare battery life of the ROM, doing it in the main release thread may be annoying.

Totally agree with you. I think its incredible how a teenager can grasp the ins and outs of making this stuff all work. I remember being in highschool and teaching part of my computer class because I understood it better than my teacher. Its awesome to be a young sponge and have the ability to retain everything , its that point in life where you don't have to worry about bills, kids, your marriage; wow brings back some good memories :)
