    BAN Vista

    PLEASE BAN the word Vista from this forum so people stop creating stupid threads about it. Search results already return 75 threads that talk about Vista.

    People are ignorant. Do we really have to ask the same questions over and over and over and over and over again?

    If you spot the same questions asked, report the post and the thread will either be locked or merged into the existing one with a similar discussion subject.

    Yeah the best we can really do is watch those threads and merge any duplicates. Vista's big news right now and it is very important in a web development context so it wouldn't be a good idea to ban discussion on it.

    I understand that it is a big topic, but what I don't understand is why people cant just use the existing threads, and read them before making tons of them.

    When Google Invites got out of hand the moderators created a single thread and make everyone post in there. It just makes the rest of the threads hard to read when there are so many on one topic.

    Just make sure to report duplicate threads when you see them. We will take care of it from there

    A big vista thread would have a high signal:noise ratio for everyone involved. Take a look at the current threads going around, they really aren't the same. One is talking about MS and Apple copying each other, the other one is the old "buy or wait?" decision. combining those two into one thread would make that large thread useless to everyone.

    So point them out and we'll try to merge the ones that make sense. But expect a lot of vista talk for a while since it's so new.

    lol Maybe you should make an official WINDOWS Vista post and let everyone talkabout it in one topic and have it a sticky.

    I already explained why that would suck.
