    Default I propose "general iPhone chat" is actually the black hole of the Milky Way Galaxy
    Everything gets moved to it, nothing gets moved out.

    The entire site gravitates to general iPhone chat. Threads posted in chit chat, threads posted in apps, threads posted in skins, threads posted everywhere........... gravitate to the black hole "General iPhone Chat".

    Nasa has been alerted. Satellites are linking up in outer space.

    Morse code generators are sending code underground to military scientists who are investigating..............

    No matter what you do, your thread may end up there too!

    You've been warned! Threads go in, but none ever come out!

    To Cahs/PF/Whoever: General iPhone Chat is a pretty big forum here, in fact, a lot of the content around the site ends up there (as previously mentioned). So my questions is...

    ... why the HELL is it so far down? There's SEVENTEEN forums before it. I sometimes forget it exists. Could we maybe sort the forums and give the important ones some priority? I mean, when I think of MMi I think iPhone discussion yet the main forum for doing this is at the bottom of the hill.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    It's down there because it is grouped with the rest of the iPhone specific forums. (why the hell the ipod touch is above the iphone on this forum I have no idea) I agree however that the majority of threads are about the iPhone and where do you thing they are going to post their question?

    .......... the first forum they see.

    Move Chit Chat somewhere else and find a way to pull General iPhone chat up to the top and you'll NEVER HAVE TO MOVE A THREAD to General iPhone chat again.

    Anything that really isnt iPhone related goes into Chit Chat, Threads that are iPhone related but dont really find a spot on the website end up in General.

    As I said earlier up there I completely understand WHY general is where it is in terms of category groupings, but this is one of those forums that you gotta suck it up and stick it right at the top, chit chat in second place, everything else as it is.

    Basically just bring general up to the top....... leave everything else alone. I'm only mildly concerned about chit chat being that close to general in terms of cross posting (in which case swap news and accy review, then stick chit chat under accy review) otherwise me thinks it'll be fine.


    photochop... I think this setup would work:

    A few weeks ago, we (meaning I) moved a bunch (1000 or so) of threads OUT of General iPhone chat to the Jailbreak forums, during the Moderator competition...

    hahaha yes. It was a battle of wits, speed, strength and courage...every mouse click was made in fear- whether or not someone moved/closed the thread before you, whether or someone had ruined a forum, or if someone had made the server crash.... If you went to bed and woke up, four thousand threads would have been moved without you. Then you had to fight to catch up. The Jailbreak and Media forums are examples of the fight that took place.
    But, yes there were many facepalms during that competition.

    its way down there, because if its up above native apps skinning etc then users post all their native apps skining and other such thing questions in iphone general chat, which is a black hole, and no one will find them ever again.

    ipod touch is above iphone b/c otherwise touch users post in the iphone specific forums,

    chit chat is at the top because ppl post crap in the first place they see, and its easier moving iphone crap out of chit chat than chit chat out of iphone general chat

    ipod touch and iphone specific forums are below the rest because the ones above are for both the iphone and ipod touch, meaning they are more awesome and better.

    any other questions?

    edit, now that i think about it maybe iphone general chat should be the last forum. then maybe ppl will learn to use the carrier and jailbreaking forums etc properly and not post them in the black hole
