    Now that we have expanded the forum to pretty much all things mac it broadens the range of topics. Chit chat can be used for off topic tech discussion as I don't know if there's a huge need for an entire new forum category related to "tangent" discussions.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but you're trying to tackle tech issues like audio/visual... gaming discussion... tech installation... car audio... tech hardware... etc.

    T those who want to be a part of the team they should add a gtalk, MSN, AIM, ICQ etc. to their profile or something so that they can do "live help" for people asking questions, maybe even put your "specialties" in the sig. so that people know who to hit up with support

    I think we've had enough crap from apple already without ganking the logo.... thanks though.

    Besides the whole Genius thing is so arrogantly prickish. Especially when they are hiring in people to fill their stores for $7 an hour....... a genius would have found a higher paying job.

    what's the point? You'd still be doing the exact thing you're doing right now, except you'd have a fancy title. Also, the tier system which is already in place is bad enough; people with solid knowledge generally get ignored if they don't have the post count to back it up. Honestly, kill this idea.

    We should make sigs with a universal logo (which has no copyright on it ) and list our specialties on them.

    I think the point would be, as I said in posts above, to have a team with IM ibformation out so we wouldnt have to help people through PMs and forums... much easier to just have someone PMing you. I see no reason to kill this idea... if you don't like it just don't be a part of it.

    i was just thinking wouldnt this like kill the point of mmi. this site started off as a place to help jailbreakers. so wouldnt this like kill 5 fourms and we would lose some members because instead of posting up a threat they would contact one of us.....

    well here's my whole perspective,
    I been here a couple of times and see people post questions that sometimes don't get answered.
    I think it's cuz if:
    1. No one knows the answer
    2. Person isn't explaining themselves poperly
    3. The right person isn't online
    4. He is just being ignored

    So if not a team how bout if a solution is found to a problem, make either a whole new board with different sections (jailbreak problems/keyboard/sound)of already solved questions. Reason for this is, yes we have these sections (jailbreak/apps/etc) but when a user has a problem, he posts and gets slammed with the: you didn't search remark. But to be honest , this world is lazy... That's why we have phones with touch screens and escalators and remotes and the clapper. So... A section with locked already solved problems (faqs) so that a user can check that section instead of trying to dig in the thread grave for a half solution, or to post a question that might not get responded and result to titles like "HELP,I bricked my phone" or "cant get off the apple spinning wheel vibrating twice screen" maybe this will help clean up allitle.

    THIS FORUM is the team. That's like saying let's put a help department in the help department.

    not saying a help departent in the help department , but instead make the help department user friendly. That's all, just an idea, I mean this site is already a great resource but hear me out. Apple and other sites might have a help forum, but they also have a dedicated knowledge base where frequently asked questions and problems are posted foe easy access then the knowledge base suggest "if you can't find an answer, try the forums" well, we could use that knowledge base

    the logos were just mocks of the approach I was looking for , not really the actual but using there respected image as an example of my idea
