"Not Tech Support"

Recommended Posts

The forum description states "Talk about other stuff in here. Keep it clean and reasonably intelligent!" This indicates it's meant for just about anything else, related to pdn or not. I came here to ask a tech support type question, but was stopped when I saw various other posts locked and a new announcement prohibitting such posting. Well, it's your program, your forum, your rules... but perhaps you should consider a few things based on the popularity of these type of posts.

  • [*:a0a80]Allowing tech support in The Overflow.
    [*:a0a80]Making a seperate board for everything off topic, or specifically for tech support, and edit the description of The Overflow to specify it's still meant for PDN discussion only.

Just ideas.

I agree with Hellfire. I don't see why such topics should be locked and destroyed in a frenzy of doom.

I don't see how this is different to other topics like these.

9th grade math help


This isn't a 9th grade math help forum so why was that ok?

C# Random number question


simililarly, this isn't a C# help forum so why was this ok?

I'm sorry you disagree. Anyway this isn't up for discussion -- this isn't a tech support forum, and discussing it more and painting this as extremist won't change my decision. We can argue forum taxonomy all day but in the end it's my call.
