    Make the front page forum text color black instead of blue. It would be nice if something changed. Merge Mac Guides and Site/Forum Feedback because it would be more nicer and convenient. Also what is the point of Archive of Old Posts forum? If it's not necessary, remove it. Also make a subforum for Linux on a Mac because there are some Linux on a Mac users out there. It would be helpful for them and their questions.

    I vote to KEEP the archives. Many people browse it, if you haven't noticed.

    no reason to get rid of the archive. lots of useful info in there still. and the Guides forum is for specific issues/requests for the guides, i could see it being a subforum of the Feedback forum though. and personally i think the homepage works fine. :eek:

    There aren't terribly many Linux on Mac threads, so I can't personally see the point of a sub forum. :)

    Why?

    They are different things, and should not be merged.

    People use it.

    There aren't enough of them to make this a valid request either....

    The Archives exist so people can browse them and that we can keep a record of everything ever said on MacRumors :)

    Otherwise, how would be still have Thread 500?

    People just can't post in the archive... which is why it's distinct from the rest of the forums.

    I think the option to search for member within a thread would be nice too-especially on the long ones.

    You take it back to its roots and "archive" means both "commencement" and "commandment."

    Such that:

    The point of the archive is that we are an archive.

    No Linux on a Mac forum needed. There are plenty of those on the Linux boards themselves, whereas I can't think of a single Windows board that has a Running Windows on Mac section.

    Of course, if anyone knows of one please post it.
