    Since there's no mod for this forum, here's some not-quite-ground-rules, but something I imagine the regulars would agree upon:

    * Don't revivie long dead threads. This forum isn't as active as the main forum, so a dead thread here isn't from a day or two ago, but rather months ago.

    * Don't post with the intent of attacking Macs or looking to start some sort of PC vs Mac argument. If you really get off on that kind of thing, do it in the main forum and GTFO of here

    * Read what people have said in response to your question and use the search feature to search old threads in the forum. We don't need duplicate threads on the same subject or questions that have been very thoroughly answered to be bumped as if they haven't

    * Asking people "what should I buy, I want to try a Mac" or something like "convince me to buy a Mac" with no information beyond that (i.e. and my budget is XXX, i would primarily use my computer to do XXX, i'm interested in XXX, etc) won't get you far. Help us help you

    Anything I've left out? :dunno:

    Yeah.

    * NO FREE IPOD THREADS.


    Actually, since we don't have a mod, I just email Faz when there is something that needs to be changed/edited/deleted. He get's right to it with no prob. The only downside, is he said that he doesn't know if he's going to keep the Mac Shack. :noes:

    Lack of action in the forum is the reason. I told him that the release of the mini and shuffle would move up the pace and we should keep it. That was a month and a half ago before they were released.

    What do you mean by "at this point?" What is going on at this point? There are 62 forums on OT. Everyone wants their own. I would be scrapping the ones that didn't see action too.

    Hell, Gadgets and Gizmos has seen more action then we have. Mac Shack is on the low end of the totem poll in terms of post count.

    Well, we have a "Computers" forum, and a "gizmos" forum, so the mac systems go in the computer forums and the ipods and whatnot go in the gizmo forum... Pretty simple if you ask me.

    I don't want to see the mac shack go, but if it did then no one is being alienated -- the mix still fits in elsewhere.

    Bullshit. Apple threads always go to shit in any forum other then this one because of all the haters that post "Apples Suck" just for the hell of it.

    I'm all for keeping the Shack, and the numbers have doubled in the last 2 months alone.

    well, it's a privately owned and operated forum, so whatever fazle wants, he gets. If he decides to get rid of the mac shack, then I think life will continue for everyone in the gizmos/computer forums. If the mac shack were to go, policy would probably change making mac/pc bashing in respective threads a big no-no.

    Again, I'd hate to see it go... but it's not the complete end of the world.

    no offense, but that would be about as reasonable as merging the "Trucks and SUV" forum with the "Eastern Imports" forum.

    Keep that screenshot up and lets check progress in 30 days, 60 days and 90 days. If there is sufficient traffic, I'm sure convincing Faz to keep the forum won't be hard.
