Vista Forum - Is it still needed?

  Peter 18:37 PM 08 Oct 09

This forum, and for that matter the Windows 7 Forum, has hardly any traffic. Perhaps the Windows 7 one will pick up after Windows 7 is released, but the Vista forum could easily be closed down and any questions directed to the Helproom forum.

Part of the problem is there is so much crossover.
A problem or question with XP, Vista or W7 often has similar answers.
In a way I think that there should really be just one forum. I don't ask Vista questions here now as they don't seem to get the same responses as posting in helproom. No ones fault, just the way it is.

And maybe theres no need for Absolute Beginners either?

Yes mooly, I agree; only goes to prove yours and my point!

sorry but I do thing you cannot do is make people post questions to the correct forum. extra forums were added to the site because they were needed. If only one forum is used some people needing help get missed.

XP Vista and Win 7 may have simlar answers Win 7 No one knows because we are still pre realease. I agree this may well pick up after realease and if all are poster in Helproom along with comments ect there will be page after page. Even this subject I feel should be in speakers corner

as for Absolute Beginners threads here require a much more detailed explination.Most of us are not experts and only try to help. If subjects were in the correct place a simple search could identify and resolve the problem

Just another example today a question on 98SE.

Everyone coming onto the site is well aware we speak our personal views and our own knowledge

Site contents and use are the realm of realm of the Forum Editor, if this setup is what they want we accept it

I on 22 oct when W7 comes out its shell as a full version vista will no longer be the new kid on the block and join xp & w98 in the help forum
